Mascara Monday: Givenchy Noir Interdit

Happy Monday! I’ve been dying to share this product with you all. Drumroll please… it’s the new Givenchy Noir Interdit mascara. You might be thinking another mascara? Cool. What’s so special about this one, Nina? Well, I’m glad you asked.

The new Noir Interdit mascara has been made with a unique and innovative brush that is able to bend to a 90 degree angle. The packaging is also super chic.

To be completely honest with you all, while this idea is great in theory, having a bendable brush just kind of made me end up looking like this.

I wish I could of filmed my experience for you to see because I had mascara everywhere. I even thought the 2nd time around might be better. Wrong. When using this I’ve just stuck to using the wand like normal.

As far as the formula goes, it’s supposed to give you a “lash extension” type of effect. I would definitely agree with this.

It definitely separates and lengthens, but the only think missing for me is volume. The mascara is meant to be build able, but I ended up just layering my normal mascara over this to give me some thickness. It also kind of has a very perfume-y scent, which I’m not sure I really like. Honestly, as I was writing this I could still smell that scent hours later. No bueno.

All in all, I would say trying this mascara was a very interesting experience. I’ll sum it up with my list of pros and cons about this product.

Pros: packaging, length and separation giving a lash extension like effect

Cons: the angled brush (not for me!), product scent, not enough volume

I would definitely reach for other mascaras in my collection before this one. It’s not to say that it’s not a good product because there are great reviews on it, I would just say this one isn’t for me…and that’s why there are a ton of other mascaras on the market!
