Miss Phoebe x L'Oreal Paris Miss Manga

I met L'Oreal Paris Miss Manga last December in LA and Houston and thought -- how come we don't have this in the Philippines when a LOT of the Filipinas could use instant doll lashes in a couple of swipes? I was mortified to try it in stores hence got a wand for myself (it was around $5.99 on sale). It was love at first swipe. It captured my uncurled lashes effortlessly and clumped my lash base exactly how the Kawaii girls would do it. I was on the fence on getting a backup that time because I bought 5 other mascaras and just crossed my fingers that this isn't limited edition and I can just buy again on my forthcoming trips. :)

Fast forward to last Wednesday afternoon, this happened:

Manga is a widely popular Japanese art style featured in comic books and graphic novels, embodied by characters with wide, big eyes. Taking this as inspiration, L’Oréal Makeup Designer/Paris developed a mascara specifically made for Asian lashes.

“L’Oréal Makeup Designer/Paris recognizes the everyday struggle of Asian women in combating short, straight, downward-pointed lashes,” shares Trisha Chua, Group Product Manager of L’Oréal Makeup Designer/Paris. “That is why we are proud to introduce Miss Manga by False Lash, our newest mascara that is tailor-made to meet the needs of Asian lashes – delivering 10x more volume and 2x curl in just one application.”
Upon arrival at the launch, I was handed out a kit where the first order of business is choosing which doll look I'd like to don for the day. Together with my makeup artist Jo Chan, I went for the Flirty Doll Look with a classy twist.

Jo did not disappoint. In fact, she and her hairstylist blew me away.

I need to learn how to fix my hair like this!

*ZOMG* See how my lashes are lifted from the side?

What sorcery is this?!?! Nothing fancy really -- it's mainly because of Miss Manga's patented conic arched brush:

This curved brush with an extra thin tip easily catches even the shortest lashes and bottom lashes, curling them from the root. Also, its Asia-specific formula delivers a perfect curl hold that is 24-hour long-lasting and 12-hour sweat proof. The result? The perfect doll lash look – lively open eyes with lashes that curl up to frame the eyes like never before.
If you like this look, you can recreate it by using the following products:

  • True Match Liquid Foundation -- I think this is the best product EVER by L'Oreal. Its finish is perfect every single time, does a mighty amazing job concealing dark spots, and very reasonably priced compared to most high end and HD liquid foundations I've tried in the past. Check my full review HERE.
  • Super Liner Brow -- very light to the touch yet leaves my brows looking well defined!
  • Color Riche Eye Shadow in So Over It -- apply the brown shade over the entire lid and the darkest shade on the crease. Blend carefully.
  • Super Liner Blackbuster Liner Marker -- create a slight wing on the outer end of the eye
  • False Lash Miss Manga Mascara -- use a zigzag motion to deposit the product from the base of the lashes all the way out. Apply on top and bottom lashes for the ultimate doll eyes look.
  • True Match Blush in Rosy Cheeks
  • True Match Super-Blendable Powder (a #bblogger approved product! Read my thoughts on this star product HERE).
  • Color Riche Le Rouge Lipstick in Fairy Touch -- great for morenas!
Miss Manga will be available in L’Oréal Paris counters nationwide starting May 1, 2015 for Php599, but will be sold at an introductory price of Php500. Don’t forget to share your dolled up adventures online using the hashtag #MissManga! :)
