Mascara Monday: Film Noir
Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara in Onyx
This is such a great mascara! I originally got it as a sample and couldn’t resist getting a full size version for the review.
The packaging is very high end feeling with it’s beautiful shiny metal tube and gold lettering. The brush is what I was initially hesitant about. As you probably know skinny brushes are just not my first choice when buying a mascara. Maybe I just don’t have luck in using them, but this mascara definitely proved me wrong. It features a skinny brush that has rows of bristles that get slightly shorter in the middle–giving it an “hourglass” shape. It distributes the formula pretty evenly but in a very dramatic way. The skinnier design also made doing lower lashes a breeze.
The formula was not in the least bit to wet or to dry and proved easy to apply with the first use. It created full lashes but as I kept going over my lashes it separated them more and more. So I used less dipping in the tube and more passes which equals the use of less product per application. Keeping this theory I did notice I kept this mascara a little longer than most (hence why it’s been so long since I’ve done continuous Mascara Mondays–sorry ladies haha).
In the end I would recommend this to the lady that doesn’t mind forking over the little extra money to try a really great product, the beauty obsessed, and the lady that loves her lashes on the more full and dramatic side.
