You should know that I’ve never been a high-end mascara kinda girl, I’ve purchased few, but I’ve never felt the need to repurchase any of them until now.
At first I was like: “Ahh, it’s alright… I like it, but it’s just as good as my favorite drugstore mascara, so whatever!”
But then, I realized I wasn’t being able to put it down, everyday I was reaching for it, so I decided to compare it with my favorite drugstore one, the L’Oreal “Paradise Extatic” mascara, and I’ve noticed few major differences: my lashes looks way more voluminous and it’s so much easier to remove, so I understood that the Velvet Noir Mascara came to stay.
I like to apply only two coats otherwise it’s starts to look a little bit clump, and I don’t really like this effect.
It’s basically everything I look for in a mascara, except for the price:
- Give me the right amount of length;
- Volume, give me that fluffy lash effect that I absolute love;
- Doesn’t smudge on me, stays put all day long;
- Very Pigmented;
- Easy to remove with an oil based makeup remover.
So… yeah, surely when this one is finished I will purchase a new one!
The Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara retails for AED 145 at Sephora Middle East and my favorite drugstore mascara , at the moment, for AED 83 on Amazon, I really enjoy both of them, but if you are looking for a new high-end mascara, I’d definitely recommend this one.

It looks great, right?!
Now, I’d love to know… What’s your favorite mascara?
See you on my next post, byeeee!
