Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara is a mascara I’ve had for quite some time but did not try it out until I saw a bunch of people rave about it, like my friend Vanessa over at Beauty Products Are My Cardio.

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY VELVET NOIR MAJOR VOLUME MASCARA
Experience ultimate volume and the look of thick, false lashes with Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara. The lash-maximizing, curvy brush places the most volume at the hard-to-reach center lash line, and the defining tip styles lashes for major drama. The super-concentrated black pigment delivers the greatest visual impact, and the Flash Volume Complex™ creates instant, smudge-proof length and volume in three strokes or less. Velvet Noir gives you the thickest lashes in one sweep.
AVAILABILITY AND PRICE
The tube of this mascara is entirely black and in a hexagon shape. The packaging is a bit chunkier than the average mascara but nothing too crazy.
The formula of Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir is not thick and doesn’t get clumpy at all. It works super well with the wand design, which allows for high volumizing effect while separating your lashes. Marc Jacobs Beauty is cruelty free and Velvet Noir is formulated without sulfates, parabens, and phthalates.
My expectations were through the roof after all the hype I’ve seen about Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir so I was half expecting to be disappointed. However, just with one coat alone I was super pleased with how much volume it added to my lashes!
Two coats did the trick for me even though they say you can add up to three coats for maximum effect. I thoroughly enjoyed Velvet Noir and although it’s on the pricier side, I can see myself repurchasing this in the future.
Velvet Noir added extreme volume to my lashes and my lash curl held up the entire day. There is absolutely no flakiness when I wear this unlike some other formulas I’ve tried. I love Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir because it lives up to its claims and I literally do not need to stress about my lashes after applying the mascara.
