I liked the original L'oreal Voluminous years back. I was not hesitated to try the MISS MANGA version, even though reviews are mixed. After finishing a tube, I agree with both positive and negative reviews out there. The mixed opinions are strictly due to personal preferences.
The formula is on the wet side and bit clumpy. For that reason, it quickly builds volume, but easily clumps up. The wand is flimsy. It took me a while to get used it, but it prevents over-clumping. The final result is voluminous lash with drama that is slightly on the spidery side, which side gives the doll like finish.
I personally liked it a lot, because I got my dramatic lashes in no time in the morning. However, I definitely thinks L'oreal Voluminous Miss Manga is better fit for lashes that already has some volume due to the clumping effect.
