Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara
by Marc Jacobs
As a young boy, Marc Jacobs watched his mother shave fibres off a black velvet ribbon to add to and thicken up her own lashes before a night out. This ode to his mother’s beauty routine is a blackest-of-blacks thickening mascara with an hourglass-shaped brush to deliver the most volume to the tricky-to-get-to centre lash line.
As a blonde I really struggle with lighter roots creating a gap between a black lash and liner look, but with Velvet Noir you can wiggle the brush into the roots of your lashes without spiking your eye.
