Velvet Noir

I love trying out new mascaras so when Sephora was offering the new Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume mascara as a 100 point perk, I immediately picked one up.

Marc Jacobs mascaras usually aren’t my favourite, but with so much hype surrounding this one, I was eager to give it a try. Volume is the most important factor to me when it comes to mascara and since this one has ‘major volume’ in the name, I thought it would be a good one to try out.

While I didn’t have super high expectations for this mascara, I was really impressed with it!

My lashes look thick and full when I have this mascara on. It applies really nicely and doesn’t smudge or flake off midday.

I really like the brush on this one too. It’s easy to apply and it coats all of my lashes perfectly.

The rich, black shade is perfect for a night out or when you want more dramatic lashes.

As far as packaging goes, I have the sample size which isn’t a good indicator. The full size tube is really sleek looking though!

When I went to get more of the 100 point perk sample sizes they were all out, so I think I’m going to need to purchase a full sized tube soon.

‘m really glad I gave this one a try. This is without a doubt my favourite mascara Marc Jacobs has come out with.
