Spotted: NEW L'Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Black Angel Mascara

If you're a fan of the original L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara (click HERE for my review), then you might be excited to hear that L'Oreal has just released the Miss Manga Black Angel formula here in the US! Black Angel has been available in Europe since last summer, I believe, but I didn't think we'd see it here (Europe also has colored versions of Miss Manga, like teal and purple, but I don't know if we'll ever get those).

Many thanks to reader @l0ve_like_wh0a on Intagram for this sighting:

NEW L'Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Black Angel Mascara

More info, after the jump...

@l0ve_like_wh0a spotted this display at her local drugstore last week--the Black Angel tube is on the far left in the pic above. This new formula promises a more "Intense" black color than the original, which we've seen in other L'Oreal mascara lines (L'Oreal often release new mascaras and then they follow up with a "carbon black" version or something like that). 

I did some googling to see if I could find some close-up pics of the tube/brush (you can see the illustration of the brush on the packaging above) and the brush itself doesn't look any different to me than the brush that comes with the original formula. For a closer look at the brush, check out this Spanish beauty blogger's review HERE. I'm actually happy that L'Oreal didn't modify or "improve" the brush for Black Angel, because the brush is probably my very favorite thing about Miss Manga. I really love that brush. 

Miss Manga fans: Are you excited to see an intense black version of this mascara? Think you'll give it a shot when you see the display?

Thanks again, @l0ve_like_wh0a, for the great sighting and pic!


  1. I'm a huge fan of Miss Manga, so I'll prob give this one a shot when sales and coupons align. I own the teal and purple from when I was living in Europe the last couple years and oh man, for my money nothing can live up to the formula on those. Desperately hoping L'Oreal will still grace us with exciting colors of Miss Manga over here eventually too.

  2. I really like MM so yes, I'll give this a shot.

  3. I wish I had better luck with Loreal mascara formulas, but no matter what they always run and transfer beneath my lower lashes.

  4. For some reason mine always dries out very fast, I love how my lashes look on the first week but by the second and third week the formula dries out
