So it came…my first ever Influenster box! For those of you who don’t know what Influenster is, it’s basically an app/website where you can review different products, discover brands, ask questions, post photos and also link it to your social media. You then get given an impact score where it tallys up your social followers and obviously the better your impact score, the more likely you are to get given a box, but this isn’t the only factor that counts. It also takes into consideration your activity on the Influenster app, how active you are on social media and also what your favourite products and brands are. After considering all these factors, Influenster then picks out different people and sends various different boxes with products in to review and then you share your opinions and I finally got my first one today! YAY FREE MAKEUP!
So I was gifted the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara (umm YAS PLEASE) and thought I would share my thoughts on whether I liked or disliked it.
So for starters, I have to say that I LOVEEE the packaging. The mascara comes in a very sleek and monochrome style box with the classic Marc Jacobs text on it.
The application was also very impressive. I usually find with brand new mascaras that it they apply quite clumpy and they normally take around 4 or 5 uses before it dries out a bit and starts to apply nicely. However, this was pretty good and although it was very slightly clumpy still, it was pretty much good to go from the first time I applied it. As for the volume, it worked wonders for my stubborn lashes! It pushed them up pretty instantly, lengthened them and also separated them a treat!
Overall, the mascara held up AMAZINGLY! I went out for a total of 10 hours and my lashes stayed up the whole time, which is so uncommon for my lashes usually. The mascara was transfer proof, smudge proof and looked great throughout the whole day.
