As someone such as myself who wasn’t born with luscious long voluminous eyelashes, finding those holy grail mascaras are a big beauty challenge. I believe no mascara—low-end or high-end—has really passed the ultimate test until they can help out and create something magically for naturally sparse lashes. Since finding my favourite mascaras that work well on my me, I’ve always been a fan of drugstore mascaras, but haven’t really given too many chances with the more expensive brands.
I was one of the few that were selected from CBB Network to test out the Givenchy Noir Interdit Lash Extension Effect Mascara. Prior to this, I was very intrigued by the mascara’s 90 degree brush that I’ve been seeing everywhere! This was a great opportunity to try something different for a change—and to finally be able to see if the price tag matches up with it’s quality got my curiosity going. The claims and benefits of the Noir Interdit Mascara are: extreme length, buildable volume, and the end result of lash extension looking lashes.
The mascara itself didn’t really do much lengthening nor volumizing. On my lashes it was basically a plain ol’mascara—that’s it. I wouldn’t mind wearing the Noir Interdit as a natural everyday mascara, but for it’s claims and price point I do admit this is a letdown. As for the 90 degree brush, it’s just really damn cool. I did find it just a tad easier to get very closer to the lash line for a more even application, but I don’t think it’s anything that will help dramatically change the way your lashes look. I was sad that this mascara didn’t exactly work out for me, however, I do see this working well for those who already have a naturally beautiful set of lashes.
