Miss Manga from Loreal has been a staple in my makeup bag for a long while, it gives my lashes lift and curl while coating them in a jet black, voluminous formula that flakes very little through out the day. Miss Hippie is her sister that is even better! Yes, you read correctly – even better.
When it comes to mascara the KPI for me is always volume. I want full, thick looking lashes that almost look like falsies but after a double take you see are all natural. Miss Hippie really gives you the false lash effect in one to two coats. I say one to two because I always go for two because that is the effect that I like but if you don’t want as heavy a look then one will do you well.
The claim of Loreal Miss Hippie mascara is that it will give you festival lashes. The exact definition of ‘festival lashes’ is something I am not 100% sure of but I guess the definition of festival lashes is very much dependent on the person and what you really want from a mascara. For me, festival lashes would be thick and full with an almost feathery look. Miss Hippie is great at building up volume and thickness without weighting the lashes down. The majority of the volume comes from the brush in my opinion. It grabs every lash and coats them with jet black formula, the same as Miss Manga but with less emphasis on length and more on volume. With a coat of black liner smudged out with black eye shadow and a couple of layers of Miss Hippie you get a great made up but undone look in less than 5 minutes.
For being £7.99 I didn’t expect much in terms of longevity alas I was wrong. This stuff sticks about all day without losing the volume you gain when you first apply and it requires a proper eye make up remover to get rid of the last bits. Otherwise you will definitely be waking up looking like a panda the next morning.If you are after an affordable but great mascara then I would 100% recommend Loreal Miss Hippie for thick, voluminous looking lashes.
