YSL Faux cils is a great mascara, it has been a staple in my makeup bag for years. Then there was Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes mascara. Now I am involved with Marc Jacobs Velvet noir major volume mascara. I have to say, it is early days but I think it is getting really serious. Right, enough talking about me usuing a mascara like it is a new relationship.
I am a product gal, I love trying and testing products. There is nothing more satisfying than discovering a new holy grail product, adding to your little stash of makeup and getting a product that gives you exactly what you are after. While reading The Sunday Times Style magazine a few weeks ago, I read a review of the Velvet noir major volume mascara and immeditally knew that I had to give it a try.
Unfortunately there isn’t anywhere that I could buy this in Edinburgh so I took to the John Lewis website, always dangerous. This mascara retails for £22 which is a reasonable price for a mascara in my opinion, especially one that really delivers.
When it comes to mascara I want one thing and one thing only – volume.
Marc Jacobs Velvet noir major volume mascara gives you major volume, with one coat your lashes are seperated and full without clumping. Basically this product is the dream. With two coats your lashes get really thick and full, almost false lashes-esque which is perfect for a night out when you can’t be bothered faffing about with falsies. This formula is super jet black which is exactly what I want and isn’t difficult to remove at the end of the day. Another major plus point. No one wants to be batteling with their mascara when they have had a few too many margaritas.
The brush is curved in a way that allows the centre lashes to really get coated with the product which normally get missed when you are applying mascara.
If you are after thick, full lashes that could be falsies but the general public isn’t really sure then this is the mascara for you. I think – and this might be controversial – this has replaced faux cils as my favourite mascara of all time. I told you, it could be controversial.
