There’s a new mascara on the block! As a member of Influenster I was selected to receive the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara ($26.00 // Sephora) to try out and share my experience either via Social Media, my blog, both… neither lol This mascara is said to give instant volume (1800% more, to be exact) and epic lashes… the look of false lashes without wearing the false lashes. Tall claims! Let’s see how it did!
The brush on Velvet Noir is a curvy, hourglass shape that makes it easy to deposit mascara just about anywhere without accidentally marking up your face. You do have to work it around and use the top of the brush at the inner and outer corners and then the center of the brush at the center of the lashes. If it’s not the type of brush you’re used to you’ll need to mess around once or twice, but once you get it… you got it 😉
I found that this mascara lifted, coated, curled, volumized… it did all the things. And it did them very well. Clumping lashes can always be an issue with me and mascara but this particular one did not accentuate that. I only needed two coats for lashes that looked “fake-ish”. It was one of those mascaras where someone asked me if I had lash extensions on again (I LOVE to get that compliment) and I didn’t… this mascara just made it look like I did because when I got them they weren’t super dramatic, but you could tell it was more than my regular mascara.
I posted the pic below to my Instagram yesterday and you can really tell on the left lashes how well the mascara lifted and thickened. I did NOT use a lash curler (I do have some natural curl to my lashes and using the curler really makes no difference on me).
What is your favorite mascara for volume and curl?
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara retails for $26.00 and is available at Sephora.
