I am always excited to receive a box from Influenster, but this box has definately been one of my favorites. I mean, I’m a self proclaimed mascara junkie! I have more mascaras waiting to be tried then I could probably use in a year. It’s actually that bad (and I love it)!
I already have long lashes so the two big things I look for in volumizing mascaras is that it doesn’t sacrifice the look of length of volume, and it doesn’t clump my lashes.
The Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara (say that five times fast) meets both of those requirements, but I feel like it could have done a little better in the staying power category. My lashes looked amazing from the start, but drooped throughout the day. Most mascaras will do this so it’s not an auto-fail in my book. It’s still a good mascara, I’ve just run into other volumizing mascaras that I feel have done better in holding volume throughout the day.
Of course, visual results say a lot more then a blog post ever could. Check out my Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir first impressions YouTube video to see for yourself!
