MARC JACOBS Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara Review

While there is always the option to apply falsies, it’s not always cost-effective or easy unless you are seasoned. 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. Let’s read more about the product.


Product Description– 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!

Packaging-This mascara is offered in two sizes – Standard and Mini. Both arrive in a black tube. The applicator is a dream. It’s super lightweight so it was easy to control on my puny lashes.

Price -Standard size – $26, Mini size- $14

Ingredients– Water, Paraffin, Glyceryl Stearate, Synthetic Beeswax, Stearic Acid, Acacia Senegal Gum, Butylene Glycol, Palmitic Acid, Polybutene, Oryza Sativa Cera (Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax), VP/Eicosense Copolymer, Ozokerite, Aminomethyl Propanol, Phenoxyethanol, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Stearyl Stearate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Sodium Nitrate, Tropolone, Disodium Phosphate, Polysorbate 60, Sodium Phosphate, Iron Oxides (CI 77499).

My experience with this product-

I borrowed this mascara from one of my girlfriends and like it for the first time used it. Fortunately, I got this in my vanity as a part of Sephora Selfie Skit. Although it’s a mini size mascara, it lasts well. It is volumizing, lengthening, defining. You can see all the changes after the 1st apply.  The correct method to perfect lashes is to actually start with the bottom lashes and then the top. If you want fuller and thicker lashes, then evenly applying more mascara to your lash is essential. If you use the wand and apply the product while doing a little zig-zag motion on the lash, you’ll see super full lashes in an instant. I always get compliments when wearing this and I don’t even need falsies when I use it. It curls and adds volume without clumping. It lasts for almost 9-10 hours, doesn’t clump at all.


  • Thickens and defines lashes
  • Gives volumizing effect
  • Doesn’t flake off
  • Stays for almost 9 hours
  • Incredibly lengthening with no clumping
  • Available in 2 sizes

Cons- None

MVR Rating- 10/10

I would recommend this mascara to women who want to skip falsies. Truly,  I have nothing bad to say about this mascara. It layers well, adding volume and length. Just amazing ❤️
