I Tried Marc Jacobs' Lash Primer For The First Time And Here's What Happened
Have you guys ever tried using a lash primer? Well... I haven’t. At least, not until last week. I’m no make-up guru and I’m definitely not one of the girls who go above and beyond with make-up. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to try new products! I had this awesome opportunity to try Marc Jacobs’ newest product, the Velvet Noir Primer, through Influenster Canada. They just launched it last week and lucky for you, you get to have a sneak peek on how it works and how it looks like when applied to your lashes!
For those who haven’t heard about it yet, a lash primer is a product you apply on your lashes before putting on mascara to help it look bolder and more voluminous. It claims to bring your lashes to the next level with only a few coats. I love primers in general and I believe in how much of a difference it makes so I have a good feeling about lash primers as well. My only doubt is whether it is or it’s not worth my money.
To be honest, mascara’s my least favourite make-up product because I do get eye allergies all the time. However, I try to use them as much as I can since I don’t have long lashes. I was ecstatic to try Marc Jacobs’ Velvet Noir Primer because I’ve heard great reviews of the brand itself. Marc Jacobs also provided me with their Velvet Noir Mascara to put on after applying the Lash Primer. Marc Jacobs’ latest lash primer is fortified with a peptide and vitamin B5 which primes your lashes with an ultra-plush base. The moment I opened my Voxbox, I already got impressed with its geometric/hexagon shape. It’s different from the mascara products that I’m used too and it looks really elegant.
For me to fully understand the difference and effectivity of the Velvet Epic Lash Primer, I tried two different looks on my lashes. One is with mascara only and the other one is with lash primer plus mascara.

As you can see, my lashes already look longer by just the mascara itself. Some mascaras can feel heavy on the eyes but this particular mascara is so lightweight and is very comfortable. This mascara isn’t waterproof but it does not smear or smudge either. Its longevity is also great which works best for me cause I don’t do a lot of retouching when I go out.

Now, with the lash primer and the mascara. I love how my lashes look so made up. I am so amazed on how my lashes look longer and much fuller. And even with both the primer and mascara, my lashes still, feel light and comfortable. It’s not itchy on the eyes as well, so this is good news to girls who get eye allergies like me! Normally, whenever I wear mascara for the whole day, I go home with smudged mascara on my eyes (as what I’ve said, I’m not that great at retouching lol). This product is different though as it’s still intact even after a long day of work!
Overall, my first time using a lash primer turned out great! Marc Jacobs did a good job in creating this product and I would totally recommend this to everyone who wants to step up their lash game.
