I often try new mascaras to find the perfect one, mascara is a product I use daily I have found a few I like but none that have amazed me until now. Even if I don’t feel like wearing much make up a few coats of mascara will always make me feel more together. I know how I like my eyelashes to look, I like the mascara to be thick but not too much that my lashes are clumped together.
I always wear only black mascara and a volumising mascara is a must, I don’t usually buy waterproof mascara. I hate mascaras that flake, smudge or make me look like a raccoon at the end of the day, I have been so impressed with the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir mascara ticks all the boxes. I was sent the Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Mascara from Inflenster to test, I was so excited!
I haven’t tried any Marc Jacobs Make up before. I have now run out of this mascara and seriously need to restock! this is the best mascara I have tried and gives me such long black lashes, the mascara retails at £22 so this is probably the most expensive mascara I have tried, but the price is very much worth it!
you can buy this mascara at most big beauty online stores and in department stores, I know that John Lewis stock this mascara online if you don’t have a local store. I will not be going back to my old mascara now, I also found the mascara lasted me a while. I had a fair few comments about what mascara I was using, my mum noticed straight away and asked what mascara I had on.
The black packaging is very sophisticated I really like the Marc Jacobs packaging, I think the hexagonal shape is really unique. The brush on this mascara is awesome! its got an hourglass shape, which makes the mascara easy to pump up your lashes and to coat all of them, the brush made it very easy to even get into the corner and the tiny lashes. The brush uses natural bristles not the plastic ones you sometimes get with other brands, the comb also makes it very easy to glide on without making them clumpy.
The formula of the mascara is a deep black pigmentation, creates buildable volume the texture is slightly thick but I don’t mind this. I think the mascara works really well on my lashes gives them amazing volume, they are dark enough for me and they last all day.
