I’ve had to learn to become adept at judging mascara by using it on my bottom lashes only because I have lash extensions on the top ones, and it’s amazing the difference between different brands. The last one I was really impressed with was XXX, but here it has met it’s match. Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara thickens, lengthens and curls with this three spiralled fat brush and the texture of the mascara is actually quite thick which gives an immediate lengthening and thickening effect and you probably only need one coat. If you want natural, look elsewhere!

On top of a good performance, the formula contains oxazolidone to protect the lashes, Artemia saline to fortify and stimulate and cotton nectar (no idea!) nourishes the hairs. Noir Couture is available in Black Satin and Brown Satin and launches in June 2012.

If you like mascara big….
