I was delighted to have been provided the opportunity to test out the new GIVENCHY NOIR INTERDIT mascara. Noir Interdit is a deep classic black mascara that promises to extend and add volume to the lashes. It is also the first 90° bendable brush.
The mascara is housed in all black bottle with a metal ribbon all around. The iconic GIVENCHY label is on the front of the bottle and OMG it’s uber sexy!
The Noir Interdit wand is smaller than what I am used to and I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not. It turns out, it’s perfect for me! I was able to get really close to my lashes to see exactly how this mascara works it’s magic. The shorter wand at a straight angle was very easy to use and with one coat I achieved fuller and longer lashes. The spikes on the wand are great for separating each lash and ensuring each lash is coated evenly with the formula.
At a curved 90°, the Noir Interdit mascara became my best friend! I don’t have natural long lashes, actually mine are short and stubby. The 90° bendable brush gave me the freedom to get really,really,really close to each short lash and separate it using the spikes on the wand. I was able to coat my bottom lashes as well without ending up with mascara on my face. I believe it’s because the 90° brush was made to be used in this manner. It gets really close the to the lashes and evenly coats them with the formula that gives extreme length and volume.
Givenchy’s Makeup Artistic Director, Nicolas Degennes’s has these tips how to properly use this innovative mascara:
” Bend to 90° by pressing wand against the top of the container to reach lashes from the root up. Then brush them up in a zig zag motion from the root to the tips for unlimited length & definition. Unbend the brush to create a buildable volume.”
At first, it was a bit weird using the curved wand but I got used to it really fast. I reach for this mascara every day now. It’s super quick to apply since I am now able to get close to my upper and lower lashes. If I see that the lashes are clumping because I added too much mascara, I just use the spikes on the head of the wand to separate them. The only negative issue I have with he mascara is that is has a strong rose fragrance.I don’t mind fragrance on my lip balm or lipstick but I prefer may mascaras to be fragrance free .
Would I repurchase this mascara?
Yes, I would repurchase for special occasions only because it does have a steep price tag, $38 CAD. I did really enjoy using it and it simplified my morning routine once I got the hang of using the wand properly.
