Overall, I feel sort of "meh" about this. When I first put it on, it looks great. But, after a few hours it flakes horribly on me (which I have only had that problem with a couple of high end mascaras), which then irritates my contacts. Also, the tubes dry out SUPER fast. Overall, this is not worth the purchase price for something with no staying power that dries out so quickly. I gave it 2 lippies because if you just want something "wow" for a night out or event, this could be a nice one.
This gives wonderful volume without clumping. Once it sets it stays in place all day and does not flake off. It is by far the best lasting power I've experienced from a non-waterproof mascara. Holds my curl all day. I have been using the tube I purchased in Febuary from Sephora and it still has not dried out or turned on me.
My mom swears by this Mascara, so I thought i would give it a shot. I can say that is didn't do anything my drugstore mascara didn't do. I think my L'oreal actually looks better then this one. The Mascara drys out so fast, i didn't even get my moneys worth. Really not worth the money.
Plain and simple, I hate this mascara. Very thick, dries up EXTREMELY quickly, and does nothing for my lashes that a drug store mascara can't do.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't waste your time/money!!
I recently been getting into high end make up products so i thought i'd give this mascara a try because i heard so many good things about it. I wasted my money.
First off it did nothing for my lashes. i honestly did not see a difference. Then it has a strong smell. im not sensitive to smells in eye products this one was really funky.
and then the tube dried out. for $30 a masacra shouldn't dry out after a month.
I try every mascara there is and usually dont even bother to review them since I try so many. This is the worst mascara ever!!! It does separate but only provides a blah, natural average look. You can that with any cheap mascara. This is junk! You can't get gorgeous glamarous lashes with this. what a waste
I read reviews on it, and based on them that is why I tried this. I don't like spending a lot of moolah on my cosmetics. But I liked this mascara it did its job, but I can find a mascara that does the same job at a fraction of the price.. so ya not buying again based on price.
I've always been curious of diorshow because of all the hype about it, but always said it was too pricey for mascara, which I go through a lot of. So I was pretty stoked when I got it as a sample from sephora. Although I do like how the product looks on my lashes, it seemed to take a lot of work to get there. I had to dip bacck into the container 2 times per eye. Because the product was so dry. It also could have been the samples having so little product in them, but either way I could not justify buying this product for the price. I will be sticking with falsies.
Does a nice job. However, this mascara is ridiculously expensive and the added fragrance drives me nuts. I made the mistake of trying three different tubes of Dior mascara and I have to say all of them were disappointing. This one seemed to dry out quickly, an issue I do not find with my Great Lash mascara. In my opinion this mascara is certainly not worth more than $10.
Also, I do not understand why cosmetic companies think we need fragrance in cosmetic products. It does not irritated eyes or skin I simply think it is unecissary. Will not purchase again.
I held off on purchasing this mascara because I didn't see a need to deviate from my current holy grail, Maybelline The Falsies. Given that it took me several years to settle on a formulation that achieved the results I sought, why recreate the wheel? But after continually reading rave reviews, I gave into my curiosity.
I never say I won't repurchase a product unless it's completely horrid or causes an allergic reaction. But I'm having a hard time justifying a second purchase of this mascara.
And this is after I tried Blackout and exchanged it for Diorshow.
A bit about my eye drama--I like precisely that, over-the-top lashes that walk on the boundary of being false. I wear heavy (but non-smudged) kohl on my waterlines, so I need a mascara which adds as much emphasis to my lashes as I do to my lids. Additionally, I wear minimal makeup otherwise, so my eyes are my focal "wow" point of my face.
My face shape is fairly oval and has pronounced features (including wide brown eyes), so I can easily pull off dramatic looks without being overpowered by mascara. Moreover, I've always been entranced by "It Girl" makeup techniques (i.e. Clara Bow), and tend to mimic those in my daily routines.
To Diorshow. The pluses:
1) The scent. I'd gladly repurchase just for the faint rose fragrance alone. Little details such as this make the mascara quite luxurious, if even...
2) ...the formula's consistency is a bit dry. I tend to wear more layers of mascara than should be legal, so while wet formulations are a bother? Diorshow is almost on the side of brittle. Which is odd, as when the mascara is on my lashes, they remain pliable to the touch.
3) The brush. This is a thick and wide one, so be prepared for some accidental nose/corner-of-eye bumps if you have smaller eyes. It's easy to glide the bristles over and through my lashes, however--again, which given the dryness of the product, I wouldn't think would happen.
4) The lasting power. I can wear this all day without smudging, and notice minimal flaking.
1) Middle-of-the-road volume. Yes, it provided some volume. But most volumizing mascaras do. This one didn't provide much more than I've found in comparable formulas or price points.
2) Middle-of-the-road "extension." Now, I'm not specifically looking for lengthening properties in a volume formula, but volume alone only goes so far in providing a "false" lash appearance. Diorshow didn't curl much more than comparable mascaras, nor did it provide an appearance of big lashes. Bigger than normal? Sure, but again, most mascaras will provide a difference from the norm.
3) Lash drooping. By the end of each day when I've worn this? My lashes have lost almost 25% of their initial height. By height, I tend to apply mascara in a horizontal-then-vertical continual swoop where my lashes are almost at a 70% angle to my eyelids. Due to the formula being slightly heavier than others I've used, I compensated by only applying 1 - 2 coats. Droop persisted.
4) Gunky brush ends and tube rim. The mascara tends to collect around the rim of the tube, in addition to clumping on the ends of the brush. Because of this, the inner/outer lashes receive heavier product deposits, and can clump very easily. Given that I usually have to apply the mascara with just the center segment of the brush (or repeatedly wipe off the excess), the application process takes longer than I'd like.
5) The color. It's a mid-intensity black, nowhere close to being brown black but definitely not in the Blackout range. Just a blah black. I wish Dior would make their Blackout formula with the Diorshow brush--that may push this product closer to Holy Grail territory.
I'm a bit disappointed in this mascara. Will continue using it until I'm out, but unless I start noticing dramatic differences in results? I'm either continuing my search or going back to The Falsies as there's nothing so remarkable about Diorshow to merit continual purchases. continued >>
