Along with concealer and blush, mascara is one of the beauty products that I can’t live without. On a day to day basis, you would probably see me with eyeshadow or liner, but you better believe I put mascara on every. single. day. I’m really not all that picky with mascara’s either and as long as it doesn’t flake or smudge, it usually good in my book. So needless to say, I was excited when I got the email from Influenster informing me that I was in for the Marc Jacobs VoxBox! Who doesn’t love trying fancy new mascara’s? No one I know…
The Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara is the newest addition to the MJ mascara family, and there are 4 other formulas available. Velvet Noir’s claim to fame is that it’s an “ultra-volumizing mascara that delivers instant dimension.”
I have to say that this mascara really wowed me. It has a super black pigment that delivers wonderful volume in just 1 coat, but 2 coats gave me even more luscious volume without that unsightly “spidery” lash look. The formula doesn’t flake at all, but if I wear it with dewy foundations, it seems to transfer to my lower eye area a bit. However, when worn with my standard Revlon Colorstay Foundation, I don’t see any transfer at all.
Overall, I have really enjoyed trying this mascara and it has been my go to lately. Yes, it is fairly expensive at $26 a pop, but it’s in the moderate range with the likes of Benefit and Stila. I really don’t think I have any mascara’s that have this black of a formula, so I’m hoping that it doesn’t dry out that quickly!
What is your favorite volumizing mascara? Have you tried this one?
