Givenchy Noir Couture Four in One Mascara
I received this mascara in my May 2013 Glossybox. Usually with miniatures I save them as they're handy for when I do travel, this one felt smaller than the usual trial mascara so I decided to try it out straight away as I felt I'd get three goes out of it at the most.
This mascara comes with a tri-spherical brush, I'm not that bothered about there being three but I do like mascara brushes with a ball on the end to help work the end and the underneath lashes. I really couldn't tell the full benefit of this brush with the trial mascara being so small the brush was only 2.5" long including the handle so a little tricky to apply. I think with the full size version the brush would be great though.
The overall effect for me wasn't as dramatic as I expected. I applied three coats but still don't have a build up as dramatic as the Benefit they're real mascara but it does still make a nice evening mascara. It was clumpy, although I don't think I've ever found a mascara that works well without using a tissue to remove most of the mascara from the brush. I worked my lashes through with a clean dry brush which improved them tenfold.
