When it comes to fashion and beauty. There’s something incredibly luxurious, but also fun about Marc Jacobs. I’ve long been a fan of his quirky designs and stylish staples. So when he entered the world of beauty in 2013, to say I was excited was an understatement. His beauty collections are as beautiful as you’d imagine them to be. So beautiful that I’ve got a couple of his pieces in my collection. Including the Lolita eyeshadow palette and the Lip Creme. But the newest product in my collection isn’t a new product at all. It’s the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume mascara.
I’m not sure how this product managed to pass me by, but it has. As a mascara obsessive, I’m always on the hunt for a formula and brush that is going to add length, volume and definition to my lashes. And this mascara ticks all three! The lash-maximising curvy brush adds some serious volume. And the defining tip works to coat even the smallest of lashes for major drama. The formula features ultra-concentrated black pigment which delivers the drama. While the Flash Volume Complex creates instant, smudge-free length and volume in just a couple of strokes.
I have to say, I really love the fluttery look this mascara gives my lashes. Not only is it lengthening, but I find it separates them really well too. Which is what I need as I tend to sleep on one side, meaning a few lashes end up crisscrossing over each other during the night! Along with extra length, I love the volume that the mascara adds. It really doesn’t feel heavy on my lashes and lasts so well throughout the day without smudging or flaking. Which is seriously impressive!
