“An ultra-volumizing mascara that delivers instant dimension for epic lashes.” Marc Jacobs
“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. Apply Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara on its own, or layer with O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara (sold separately). Pair it with Feather Noir Ultra-Skinny Lash-Discovering Mascara and Lamé Noir Ultra-Glittering Mascara (sold separately) to style your lashes for every occasion.”
The mascara is pretty good! It’s very black and I haven’t experienced any flaking. The brush remind me of the Too Faced Better Than Sex. I personally find the brush to be a tad too big. The actual formula is lightweight. One or two coats and your lashes are very full. The finish is a soft matte, no sheen. My biggest (and only) complaint is that while it doesn’t flake when I rub near my eye, mascara is there. When I rubbed my inner corner I had mascara on my finger. That being said it doesn’t actually flake and smudge down my face. I think in the summer it could though. In the winter / fall it’s fine though.
Would you re-buy this product? No.

Who would I recommend this for? Anyone looking for volumizing mascara.
Last Comments? This mascara isn’t awful but not my favorite either. Overall I tend not to love super volumizing mascaras. If you do I think this might be a lovely option. Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir is even more volumizing than Too Faced BTS, for those who love that mascara! I also love the story behind the mascara “Velvet Noir is inspired by Marc Jacobs’s first beauty memory of his mother carefully shaving fibers from a velvet ribbon to create her own couture faux lashes.”
