I own this product in "Catwalk Blue". It's highly pigmented and a very nice dark blue. But for me it doesn't curl more as a mascara with a regular wand. It seems to make my lashes more heavy because a lot of product goes on the lashes with every 'strike'. And I had a hard time to remove it in the evening, although I am using UD Melt Down (it always removes even waterproof mascara easily). I'll use it just from time to time to spare my lashes.

This my go to mascara! It doesn't clump, seems to last for a long time, and holds my curl perfectly.

This mascara is beautiful, there is no doubt. It gives me beautiful lashes, both volume and length. The brush is lovely. Everything is just lovely about what this mascara does for my lashes!
It is a high-end brand, so of course, this is not cheap. Therefore I took away 2 lippies. I just feel like mascaras are the first thing you run out of, so it's kind of douche to make them so expensive. But, it def stands out from drugstore mascara. This is much better.
Since lashes are so important for your look, I don't mind spending it on a high-end mascara.

The reason why I won't be repurchasing this after I run out is because I would like to try the Lancome Hypnose Dolls mascara :) I am on a mission to find the best mascara! If the Lancome one disappoints, I could def go back to this. This is a great great mascara!

I needed a new mascara after finishing my Bobbi Brown Everyday Mascara.

I was tossing up between this and the Dior It Lash Mascara, I really couldn't decide and so the sales assistant told me she would give me a trial size Overcurl that she had in a gift pack, and I could but the full size It Lash and that way I can have both at no extra cost.


A) it clumps like crazy.
B) two coats gives you spider lashes - and not in a good way.

I was specifically after a mascara that would seperate and lengthen my lashes and the sales assistant was adamant that this would be perfect for me.

It clumped my lashes together and added little spidery fibres to the ends.
Also, did not curl my lashes at all, as the name suggests.

The packaging is nice and it's unscented and easy to clean up if you smudge it.

It didn't flake at all, which is surprising considering the fibres.

Price is ridiculous if you pay full price - $52

I went into Sephora to but my tried and tested favourite Urban Decay Lush Lash mascara that I've been using for years. Sadly it was out of stock. No problem - I'd recently read rave reviews about an Estee Lauder one - discontinued! Argh. I love a good mascara and had absolutely none left in the one tube I had at home. I much prefer to go to Sephora armed with MUA and Paulas Choice reviews up my sleeve but with both my choices unavailable I had no choice but to ask Sephora for advice.

I asked for a non waterproof mascara, preferably to hold a curl. I don't like fake looking lashes so aren't bothered with volume and length - I just like my lashes to look a bit darker than when I'm not wearing mascara and if possible an added bonus is a bit of curl.

I prefer not to try the tester mascaras for health reasons, but at this price I thought I should. I had no mascara on so it looked pretty good with one quick sweep in store.

When I got it home and applied 2 coats it went quite horrible, one decent sweep of application is definitely the way to go. When I apply my Urban Decay Lush Lash I don't have this problem and can reapply at night time if needed, but not with this Dior mascara.

Overall it's fine, it will do until my favourite Urban Decay Lush Lash comes back in stock - and when it does I'm buying 2!! It's definitely not the worst I've tried, but it's by far the best too.

This will end up as a spare in my travelling makeup bag.

It's an okay mascara, but not worth the price. I got it for Christmas and I really wanted to make it work, but it's just not the one for me. I find the brush really hard to use and it's hard to get an even coat on your lashes. But it's fine, but not worth the price.

Bought my first tube of this mascara in August, and since then I've been through two tubes. It lasts 3-4 months before getting a bit dry and/or running out. Though this is expensive ($35 Canadian), it's well worth it. I will never go back to drugstore mascara after trying this - it gives length and volume without getting clumpy, it's super black and it keeps my lashes curled ALL DAY, which is a chore. I have it in waterproof because I live in a rainy city, and while it is definitely water resistant, I wouldn't call it waterproof. Doesn't flake, doesn't fall out, doesn't do anything weird. My holy grail mascara for sure!

I got this as a perk from Sephora's beauty points. I love the wand, it's curved which I like to give me really, really nice length. Curling? It's ok, but I use a lash curler so it looks good. It's a little bit clumpy though. I usually get compliments on my eyes whenever I wear this mascara, but I have a problem with this mascara, so I have to stop using it. It really makes my eyes water. Which is sad because otherwise this is a nice mascara. It's not super fabulous however that would cause me to repurchase. It's too expensive for my budget, but it probably gave my lashes the nicest length out of all my other mascaras. There is no volumizing with this mascara, which would have been nice, but it's ok it does not. I did enjoy my sample however and the packaging is elegant. Chrome and black tube, very classy. Formula is between wet and dry, just right. It is unfortunate I can't continue using this as my eyes are just too sensitive.

The good reviews are on point: this mascara is lengthening, volumizing, and flares out the lashes. As for the curl, I cannot really say seeing as my lashes are naturally curled. The two bad comments I would give this mascara would be 1) the ridiculous price ($35 in Canada) and 2) it does not last as long as any other mascara I've used (lasted me about 2 months until it became very dry and clumpy — and I've used numerous high end mascaras).

An atrocious excuse for a mascara! Paid 25 for terrible clumps and no volume; admittedly, it does hold a little curl, but nothing that couldn't be achieved with a lash curler. The packaging does look pretty, yes, however can attract fingerprints- but if you want to pay almost thirty pounds for a pretty case alone.... The first two weeks the mascara was too wet to use whatever technique I used however had dried out a little and improved a tiny amount by the third. I must emphasise I love dior products, but this didn't do it for me. Save your money, and purchase a mascara elsewhere (even high street ones are better than this!)
