Influenster Voxbox – Kat Von D True Portrait Foundation

Influenster Voxbox – Kat Von D True Portrait Foundation

I received these products complimentary from Influenster and Kat Von D for review. I was looking forward to trying a new high-end foundation. I don’t often buy high-end foundation unless it’s on sale, so it was great that this one was coming to my door. […]

A (mostly) Colourpop Haul from Ulta

A (mostly) Colourpop Haul from Ulta

Colourpop is one of my favourite makeup brands. It’s incredibly reasonably priced, and I haven’t come across many duds in their line up. It’s not the most easily accessible brand in Canada. With international shipping, duty fees, and exchange rates, the costs can add up. […]

Influenster Voxbox – Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Primer

Influenster Voxbox – Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Primer

I was super excited to receive this voxbox complimentary for review from Marc Jacobs Beauty and Influenster Canada. I, not being that bougie, have never tried anything from this brand before.

They sent over the new Velvet Noir Primer along with the classic Velvet Noir Volume Mascara. They both run for $33 CAD each.

I was skeptical about the primer, I don’t particularly like eyelash primers. I was excited to try out the mascara, I’ve heard good things about it. The packaging on both of these is really sleek.

I tried the primer with the Marc Jacobs mascara, as well as my current favourite one. I also tried the Marc Jacobs mascara without the primer. I thought the primer worked shockingly well. I didn’t find it made my lashes TOO clumpy, which I find primers usually do. I used a light hand while applying it though. I found that it made a difference in how long and thick my lashes worked.

Would I ever spend $33 on an eyelash primer? Absolutely not. It’s just not important enough of a step in my routine for me to ever spend that much on one. I wouldn’t even spend $5 on a primer. But if you like eyelash primers, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed in this one.
