I won't leave the house without Mascara, because I think lashes are there to be defined and lengthened. To make you look as good as possible. It's amazing how blah one looks without mascara, yet not so bad without lipstick. Anyhow, I received a little VOX Box surprise from Marc Jacobs to review their new #Velvetnoir major volume mascara.
On the Marc Jacobs site it states: "The lash-maximizing, curvy brush places the most volume at the hard-to-reach center lash line, and the defining tip styles lashes for major drama. The ultra-concentrated black pigment delivers the greatest visual impact, and the flash volume complextm creates instant, smudge-free length and volume in three strokes or less. "
So wand in hand I set out to apply some pigment. Yes, the color is a nice dark shade of black. I was surprised to see how much thicker my lashes looked. So much so that one application was plenty. Usually I have to apply mascara twice to get the full volume effect. Applying it twice was almost overkill and better suited for the night time "glam" effect.
The mascara stayed on without smudging and was easily removable with regular make up remover. All in all , I really liked this product and it gets a thumbs up from me.
