This has been my favorite mascara for a while now. I started using big-brush mascaras with Benefit badgal but that stuff always gave me raccoon eyes so I switched to Diorshow. The regular diorshow mascara smudges pretty easily. Unfortunately this one isn't much better. It doesn't smudge for me until I've been wearing it all day and into the evening, but it will smudge after a work out or a nap. But this is the best mascara I've tried for making my lashes look thicker and longer.
Very disappointed with this product - after DiorShow smudged badly on me, I hoped that I might have more luck with the waterproof version... so I applied one coat on my top lashes only. But no, it smudged too and only after a few hours! Not happy.
I had great hopes for this mascara as Dior is a favorite on the MUAlley boards. It helped my lashes look much longer, but unfortunately within several hours I had raccoon eyes underneath. I haven't found anything that works better than Bobbi Brown no smudge for waterproof, but am still looking for the length that this gave in a waterproof formula. Too expensive & mis-marketed for me!
PROS: It makes your lashes look huge and adds a considerable amount of volume. With the right technique, the large brush can be used to good effect and is particularly good and curling up the outside lashes. It is the best mascara on the market that I have tried for adding volume to your lashes.
CONS: It is not waterproof and I always have smudges in the bottom corners of my eyes after about 4 hours (including after attempting it with a lash protective coat).
This mascara may not be the most WP mascara out there but it does give volume, length and most importantly the WP formula holds a curl!! Definately a HG for me! :D
I have to say that I really liked the big Teddy bear brush but after applying 4,5,6 coats I found this supposedly dramatic effect a myth. For the cost, well, why bother. I think I'll stick with my Covergirl Waterproof instead. I'll have to return, disappointed.
This is my first waterproof mascara, and now I am hooked. I loved the normal DiorShow until I bought this one. Now this is the one for me.
The effect is not as dramatic as the regular DiorShow, but it's lightness makes up for it. The texture, weight and stay-power of the mascara is very important for me, since I live in a humid place, which tends to limpen my lashes, even if I curl them. A normal mascara would further weigh down the collapsing lashes. But the waterproof version is so light, it doesn't weigh my lashes down, and also acts as a barrier to the humidity so that my lashes stay curled all day.
The brush is a bit bulky and clumsy, but with practice, it's not that hard to use.
Good mascara with good immediate results, but it smudges and isn't exactly waterproof. So not worth the money.
I liked this mascara overall, but the results were not dramatic enough alone. It looked great when used with my Shesheido mascara base, but honestly the base looks even better with Voluminous (which is an $8 mascara). It is not awful, but I will not buy again.
I am an avid Dior user, but did not like this product. It was not the waterproof version of the regular like I wanted. I bought it for my wedding, but I will not buy this again. It was not really waterproof and felt sticky and clumpy compared to the smooth texture of the non-waterproof Dior show.
