Good Morning + Happy 24th Day of Blogmas aka Christmas EVE! 🙂

Those who entered my 4th Blogmas Beauty Giveaway, be sure to read until the end – the winner has been announced! 

Day 24

Today, I have another product review to share! I was recently sent the new Velvet Noir Marc by Marc Jacobs mascara + could not wait to try it!


It arrived in one of the ever-sleek black boxes…IMG_8182When I opened it up, I was immediately in love! I adore this tube. The hexagonal shape + simple design is really chic + totally my style!


My lashes cooperate best with a curved brush, but I was curious to see how this one would apply.

The product claims to:  “place the volume in the hard-to-reach center lash line for major drama. The super-concentrated black pigment delivers the greatest visual impact, and the Flash Volume Complex™ creates instant, smudge-proof length and volume in three strokes or less. Velvet Noir gives you the thickest lashes in one sweep.”

I did about 2-3 coats on each set of lashes to test it out …

I do have fairly long lashes to begin with, so any mascara really does enhance them. To be 100% honest with you, I love the packaging + I love the formula, but I’m not a huge fan of the brush. 🙁 I feel like it made my lashes look a little wonky. It was difficult getting them to curl the way that I like.

I’ll definitely hang onto this product, it may be something that I use as a base coat before applying my *favorite*  Maybelline mascara!

While it may not have been life changing, I still loved testing it out! Thank you Influenster for that — I really appreciate the opportunity to try any + all new beauty products! 🙂

  1. Your lashes definitely are beautiful even before mascara, so jealous!! It’s always a disappointment when products don’t work out, especially from high-end brands. Thank you for an honest review and letting us know. Hope you have a Merry Christmas!! 🙂

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed it!! I feel like makeup [mascara in particular] works differently on everyone. My lashes just happen to have the best luck with more curved brushes 🙂
