I love the way my lashes look after using this mascara! Gives lots of volume and length.
My only problem is that this dries way too fast!
I probably won't buy this product again because of the price and because of how fast it dries out (about a month for me).
i'm so angry with myself for not buying the original diorshow like i'd intended to. i bought this instead thinking it would be better but it's not. it's not even blacker (but then again, i already have black lashes so i don't know if that makes a difference or not). it's harder to remove and it clumps, something i didn't experience with diorshow. would never buy this again!
This is my all time favorite mascara - it almost looks like I have on fake eyelashes!!!
*sigh* Towards the end of my waterproof Diorshow mascara, i thought i would give the brand another. My review on that on wasn't very forgiving but i like to hope that a product will work well the first time you use it and when it stops working and starts to run out, buy a new one. This wasn't the case with the waterproof and i feel this is going to be the same case with this one.
Blackout is as black as black gets but thats where it ends. I think i've pretty much had it with higher end mascaras because i never get the result i'm after. I fond Chanel to be awful, MAC are worse... i won't go on. I think thats what lacking in some of these reviews. We're all after something different. I don't want the natural look, i'm a rock chick. This just doesn't get the job done. After one or two careful coats, it sticks together. You can comb it, separate each lash... whatever your technique, this is time consuming. I'd expect a £17.50 masara (thats about $35) to separate itself and do its damn job. So to any of you girls who are looking for an impressive mascara that thickens, lengthens and blackens the hell out of those lashes? Don't bother with this stuff, gals. It just won't do!
I went to buy the regular DS mascara in black but the salesclerk talked me into the Blackout version. She said it is the same but really black and shiny. The only negatives is the it does smear after a few hours and it does not smell like roses like the regular DS mascara does.
I would buy it again but I would top it off with a coat of waterproof mascara to keep it from smearing.
I recently read that this product won a major beauty award in the USA and i have to say.... i'm very surprised. I always loved Diorshow, and when I ran low with my last tube I stopped by the Dior counter and the saleslady suggested Blackout. Nice packaging, sounds promising. At first I just LOVED the deep inky colour of the mascara. But after two swipes with the brush, my lashes stuck together with the telltale "spider legs" look.... managed to comb it out enough to lok presentable, but further problems 30 min later when i realised the colour was migrating down under my eyes for a smudged effect i was NOT after... will be returning to my trusted Diorshow!! I give it 2 lippies for the lovely colour but that's about it
Well, I absolutely love DiorShow and wanted the waterproof version for summer, but sephora did not have any so I went with the Waterproof Blackout. I've only been using it about a week, and the waterproof aspect holds true,so I'm hoping the more I use it and get better, the less it'll clump. The clumping isnt bad and nothing a lash comb cant fix, but normally the Diorshow doesnt clump at all. I dont know if the clumping is due to being the waterproof formula, but if it doesnt get better I probably won't purchase again.
I've found it quite interesting reading the reviews for this. After being let down by my beloved Armani Starlash, I was on the hunt for something new, with no real mascara loves. I had tried the original Diorshow many times, but have never found impressive success with it. So I decided to give this a go. The first thing I must mention is that true to its name, this is by far the blackest mascara I've used (I always found Diorshow to be a very muted black). It gives my lashes length, volume and curl, all of which keep really well throughout the day. Given that I always smudged really badly with the original Diorshow within hours of application, I've been really surprised to have no such issues with this! I'm still on the hunt for something better (but suspect this will be a life long thing, as it is for most mascara-wearers), but this will be something I continue to purchase until I find that elusive HG.
One word...clumpy. Would not buy again. Way too expensive for what it is.
This is just an average mascara and I wouldn't repurchase again. However, I do like the intense black look.
