Meet my newest mascara love. The Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara ($26 US/$33 CAD) is everything I look for in a mascara. It offers incredible length and volume all while keeping my lashes separated and soft.
The design of the curvy brush places the most volume at the center lash while the defining tip styles lashes for major drama. It is also very easy to get access even my teeny inner corner lashes. The one available shade, 10 Noir, is incredibly black. There is absolutely no need for a lash comb with this formula. My lashes are so beautifully separated with no clumps. They also feel so light, soft, and fluttery that when you feel them you would swear you weren’t wearing mascara. I love that I can have so much volume and length without any stiffness to speak of. The formula has no detectable scent. I have noticed a small amount of flaking on occasion but only after I’ve been playing with my eyes.
Are you ready for the before and after? BAM! This is applied on makeup free eyes. The effect with tightlining, eyeliner, etc. is obviously even more incredible.
We will have to see how the formula performs over time, and if it changes with age over the next couple of months, but so far I think this may be my new favorite mascara for everyday to special occasion drama.
