Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara by Marc Jacobs:
The brand claims: 'Major Drama. Oversized Lashes. Velvet-Like Look. Experience 1800% more volume and the look of false lashes.
The lash-maximizing, curvy brush places the most volume at the hard-to-reach center lash line, and the defining tip styles lash for major drama. The ultra-concentrated black pigment delivers the greatest visual impact, and the flash volume complex creates instant, smudge-free length and volume in three strokes or less.

Velvet noir major volume mascara gives you the thickest lashes in a blink. The majorly volumizing mascara delivers instant volume for your most epic lashes yet.'

Overall Experience:
Let me take a minute to thank and appreciate the sweet gesture from Marc Jacobs team to send me this gorgeous mascara in beautiful packaging with my name engraved on it. =D

I love the packaging for Velvet Noir. It is a little towards the bulky side but the weight and overall feel work for me. The wand is also easy to use and the shape of the wand helps to achieve a decent curl while applying the mascara. As you can see in the close up of my eye, my eyelash looks decently curled. I did not use an eyelash curler prior to the application and I got enough volume and curl from one coat of this mascara.

The formula works great once you get command on the application because while it gives you volume, it can also make your lashes look clumpy and spidery if you try to build it up. The mascara also takes a little longer to dry but once it is dried, it stays throughout the day. It is also water resistant which is a plus for me and comes off with a regular makeup remover but even better of an oil-based makeup remover is used.

Touching your eyelashes during the day or trying to separate them if they clump together, can leave you with fall outs of fiber which can create a grey cast under your eyes. It really does not look pretty and at the end of the day, I do see some fall out even after being too careful.

It surely works well but I am not able to get a good looking finish with three coats. The volume and length is a lot of three coats but my lashes end up in a clumpy mess. :'(

Overall, it is a great everyday mascara. You can definitely see a huge difference with one coat but it has a limit to give you volume before you will mess up. I personally have made my peace with one coat of this mascara and I give it a decent time to dry. I do not necessarily hate this but I would love if the drying time was faster when I am trying to apply more than one coat.

I really wanted to love it more because it has my name engraved in it and it hurts to mention the cons of this mascara but the purpose of my blog is honesty and to help you make your makeup shopping decision easily.

  1. What a lovely mascara and gesture!

  2. How cool, your name is on the tube!!

  3. This is so cool to have your own mascara with your name on it! Usually I prefer lengthening and curling mascaras, the volumizing ones don't work well for me most of the time.

  4. I'd love a mascara with my name on it. Sadly the only time I bought MJ mascara I was disappointed. I had a mini though that worked better for me. I don't remember it having fibers so it might have been a different formula.

  5. How exciting it has your name on it. Unfortunately, I haven't had good luck with MJ mascaras.

  6. Awesome that they put your name on it when sending it to you. Sucky for the fact that the mascara wasn't better than it was. With Marc Jacobs you expect the product to be luxurious and amazing and when it isn't it's sometimes worse than if it had been a cruddy mascara from a cruddy company, at least in my opinion.

  7. I love the look of the wand! So special that it has your name on it!

  8. I have a mini of this somewhere, and haven't opened it yet. Sounds like it isn't worth buying the full size, but I love that they personalised the tube they sent you!

  9. It seems to be gorgeous will surely give it a try,
