Marc Jacobs Beauty has been a range for a while now, but has only recently become available in the UK. With it being launched exclusively at Harrods, they kindly got in touch with me and asked me if I’d like to review the Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara on my blog! I’ve never tried any products from Marc Jacobs before so I was really excited to give this mascara a try. It came in this pretty glossy black box, and inside was a video campaign that started playing as soon as you lifted up the lid (it was really cool) that introduces you to the brand and is a short story about the creation of the mascara.
So on to the mascara itself, Velvet Noir has an hourglass shaped brush that is great for coating every lash in the mascara and it’s not too long that you’ll end up with black marks everywhere. It’s the perfect mascara if you want volume, as it lifts and curls your lashes and makes them look really volumized. You only need a couple of coats to achieve this too! I did find that over coating them made my lashes start to go clumpy, and I have very short lashes so I had to use another lengthening mascara on top to give them a bit of length on top of the volume. But I can see this mascara being a favourite when going for a more dramatic eye look as it really gives you that false lashes effect.
Watch out for some makeup looks coming soon using this little treasure!
