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!
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…When I opened it up, I was immediately in love! I adore this tube. The hexagonal shape + simple design is really chic + totally my style!
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! 🙂
