Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara by Marc Jacobs Beauty: Hit or Miss?

Hello my pumpkins and welcome back!

Welcome if you are new, join the pumpkin family, you can follow my blog by email or WordPress. Today, I am reviewing this gorgeous mascara by Marc Jacobs Beauty. I actually heard so many good things about it and that’s why I wanted to try it. If you read my previous post January Favorites you know that I love it!



Product Information

This mascara retails for 26$ and you get 9.5ml of product. It is formulated without Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates and it’s supposed to give you “an experience [of] ultimate volume and the look of thick, false lashes”.

You can easily find this mascara at Sephora and Marc Jacobs Beauty is cruelty-free.



This mascara comes in a simple black and white box that shows the information of the mascara.

The mascara itself is all black [shiny] and had the ‘Marc Jacobs’ neatly written on it in silver. The packaging is so sleek, I love it, it looks very luxurious and it is actually big. The applicator itself is not though and it has the shape of an hourglass, a shape pretty famous amongst the high-end brands and now, some drugstore brands.

Moreover, the fact that the wand is not too big makes it easier and less messier to apply.


I really love how this mascara performs, it gives really nice volume and length to my lashes, it makes them look so full and black, I love it. Plus, it doesn’t dry out fast and it’s not too liquidy, so the consistency is perfect. Furthermore, it is long-lasting so my lashes do stay voluminous and tall for a long time.


I definitely recommend this product and I will definitely repurchase it even though it’s expensive, I think this mascara is totally worth the 26$, I mean the packaging is amazing and the formula is amazing too.

You can get this mascara from here

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading and if you did, don’t forget to give this post a ‘like’ and to follow my blog [you can do that by email].

    I love this mascara! I originally got a sample size in one of those Sephora mascara sets & ended up cashing in my voucher for a full size. Definitely my go-to high end mascara.
