I normally use the regular DiorShow, but when I went to my local department store, this mascara caught my eye. I was told by the salesgirl that this would be exactly the same as DiorShow but a richer black and smaller brush, so I decided to give it a go. I am taking it back tomorrow. This was dreadful!! It is so wet it clumps your lashes together immediately and smudges like mad. I am so disappointed! Especially when I paid $49 AU for this :( Like some of the other reviewers here I also found that even when using eye makeup remover, it still doesnt get all the mascara off-even though the cleansing pad looked clean, I still got smudges on my pillow!! Grrr! This is the first review I have written on here-this product was so bad I didn't want people to make the same mistake as me! STICK TO REGULAR DIORSHOW!!! :)
HG Mascara. I love the enormous brush. This mascara is a breeze to apply and makes me look like I have fake eyelashes on!!! Simply Amazing!!!
So if you go into Sephora and are sucked in by this new limited edition Dior mascara, do not buy it! I was so enthralled by the dark pigment factor that I decided to purchase this instead of the classic Dior Show that i intended to buy. I asked the saleslady if she recommended it, and she gave it great reviews. So once I got home, I put it on, and while it seemed to be a little bit darker, it clumped liike nothing I have ever seen before. It was very smudgy, and didnt even really seem to lengthen my lashes at all. What a rip-off. I should returned it, as the next week I just went back and bought plain old Dior Show. Ugg!
One of the worst mascaras I've ever tried. Clumps, difficult to apply, and the effect is raccoon eyes. And it hardly comes off! This is not worth the money at all. I like the standard Diorshow Mascara, but this has nothing in common.
Mascara is very hit or miss, and what one person loves others will hate, so if you have short, light colored, not thick lashes read on.
This isn't the "blacker" version of Diorshow- for one the brush is smaller on this version, which is nice for me to be able to build length. Color wise it's not any darker than other black mascaras, at least not enough to be noticably different. The pigment does last though, and using eye makeup remover is pretty much required(but still, there will be leftover pigment).
This gave my lashes length without making them look like spider legs, it works really great for me and i love it. It didn't smudge or flake. It gives a nice doe-eyed look.
I have tried several mascaras in the past few weeks and this one has been by far, the best mascara. Yes, it is a little thick and if you already have long full lashes, it would be too much but for someone like me who has really sparse short asian lashes - it really does wonders! It gave me this full thick lashes that stayed curled, did not flake and stayed curled for over 12 hours. It did smudge a bit but it was raining a bit today, so will have to see what happens on a sunny day. The price is a little high - and I found the max factor 2000 calorie to be quite close to the effect but was more dry and I felt as though I had mascara on whereas the dior blackout felt quite light. I can see how this may be a little too much for some people but for someone like me who has been searching and searching to have lashes - this has been the one.
HATE HATE HATE!!!
I'd like to know why the geniuses at Christian Dior hate their customers so much that they have put this on the marketplace. Were they abused in some way by a mascara-wearing woman and now they're trying to get back at her by punishing all of womenkind?
This is hellish to get on and even more hellish to get off. But if you like to have three giant, clumped-together, tarantula-leglike eyelashes on each eye then go ahead and buy it.
Seriously... I loved Maximeyes, and before that Mascara Parfait... nice big flushy brushes and mascara that did not clump. For some reason they are no longer available.
I like Diorshow for evening and thought Black Out would be comparable. WRONG!! It clumps, it runs, it makes my lashes look oddly stumpy, is horrid to remove and generally is crap. Expensive crap.
I tried changing the brush to an old (clean) Diorshow one, as these brushes are much fluffier and I thought it might reduce the clumping. Well, it did help a bit, but there is still no way that I can stand to use this mascara. It frustrates me so much that this morning I threw it across the room.
Just a gross, horrible experience using this stuff. STAY AWAY from it!!!
I like DiorShow and love black mascara so I figured this would be a blacker DiorShow. WRONG. I didn't notice it being any more pigmented and after wearing it a few hours, I literally had raccoon eyes!! It ran and smudged terribly; I have NEVER had a mascara do that to me, not even cheap d/s brands. I returned it today at Sephora.
This Stinks! I'm taking it back to Neiman's. When I first used this, Boom Awesome! A few hours later, nothing! The mascara vanished from my lashes. The Awesome Boom was gone, deflated.
I really like this mascara. I fell like it's a comibination of Volumnios and Architect. The only downside is that it's not waterproof but I will definitely buy again.
