An Honest Review Of The Noir Couture Mascara From GIVENCHY.

I recently received a sample of the Noir Couture mascara from GIVENCY from Glamour and wanted to give my review on this blog as well as in their survey.

Personally, I like the mascara, my eyelashes are naturally long but it does give them a lift and makes them actually darker and longer. The wand on the brush is nice and thin with a slight dip in the middle. It makes it really easy to get into the inner corners of the eyes and coat all the lashes.

In terms of the formula, it stays on all day and doesn’t smudge which makes it perfect for the bottom lashes. However, this obviously means it is rather hard and annoying to remove.

Plus the mascara doesn’t give me spider eyelashes that clump together loads and look really dry. I haven’t felt the need to top up my mascara at all throughout the day which is amazing.

However, whilst I can’t find anything wrong with the mascara, I can’t help but think of the price. Personally I think a lot of drugstore mascaras are just as good as this one, for example the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara, is just as good and only £8. This mascara retails for £26.

Overall, I do like the mascara but I wouldn’t purchase a full sized one due to the cheaper alternatives.

As a student I rely on the drugstore to make me look less hungover for lectures as I need affordable makeup for my budget. However, if like me you like to buy new makeup you don’t need in colours you will not wear often then high end products are not the way forward. These are my everyday drugstore makeup products that I have repurchased a number of times and are budget friendly.
