A 5'3 Perspective

A Givenchy Product Review


I haven’t done a mascara review in quite a while – reason being that I have actually been extremely happy with YSL Shocking. But, all good things must come to an end, and when I finished my last tube of Shocking I promised myself I would try something new. I used to like Givenchy’s Phenomen’Eyes Mascara [you know the one that looked like a pom pom] the formula was great, but I found that it took quite a long time to build up enough coverage with that tiny brush – and I have little patience. Recently Givenchy developed a new mascara, using a brush similar to Phenomen’Eyes, but with three pom poms instead of one – which seems like it would paint your lashes much quicker. Obviously I was lusting after this item, and probably even more obviously – I went out and bought it [I’m a mascara addict – I admit it].

Givenchy Noir Couture

The only negative comment I have about Givenchy Noir Couture is that it isn’t waterproof – otherwise this mascara is great. It doesn’t seem to flake much at all and it really lengthens and separates my lashes. I bought the black satin, but it also comes in brown if you want a more subtle look.

Here is a before and after comparison. I did not curl my eyelashes and I used two coats of mascara – this is my usual routine.

In case you wanted to see how the Noir Couture compares to Shocking, here is a photo.

The lighting is vastly different between the two pictures but I actually think the Givenchy give my lashes more length and thickness. I still love the YSl but I think I have found a new favourite mascara!
