I bought this on the recommendation of a friend and must say how pleased I am with results. You apply before mascara and lashes appear white. I found that you have to apply mascara fairly quickly after the serum or else lashes become a bit brittle and do not take mascara as easily. Lashes look fuller and longer after using this product.

Makes me look like I'm wearing fake eyelashes. I have long, thin lashes and this makes each lash thicker and even longer. I've been using it AM and PM and haven't noticed any differences in my lashes when I'm not wearing mascara, but it's only been a week so I'll update in a few weeks. Only thing I don't like is the feeling of going to bed with mascara on and waking up like I forgot to wash off my mascara the night before (hard, bent lashes) oh and the white lashes aren't very bedroom romantic wink* Probably will purchase again and planning on buying a tube for my mom too!
Edit *doesn't work under the new Chanel volume mascara

I really love this product. It holds curls really well which is good when used under mascara because they stay curled all day. I use it as a primer under mascara and it makes my eyelashes so long almost reaching my eyelashes when I put mascara on. I also use it at night or in the day if I'm not busy as it is meant to help grow lashes and after using it for a week I've seen my lashes slowly growing and my eyelashes don't seem to fall out as much when I take my makeup off.

I got this originally as a 100 point perk at sephora a while back. I loved it so much so I bought the full size and I have been using this ever since. I use it everytime before applying my mascara and it helps thicken them up and elongate them. Not sure if they have helped condition my lashes, but they do a good job of thickening them up. Will continue to repurchase.

I was dubious at best when I first read the rave reviews for DiorShow. How can a white goo make your lashes longer and extend what, physically, isn't there? A good mascara will curl your lashes and make them appear longer, so why use this if you've already got a good mascara?
Well, I don't know how this goo works exactly, but it lengthens my lashes and makes an incredible difference when used under my (highly recommended) Max Factor False Lash Effect. I did a comparison test (one eye with, the other without) and the difference was well worth the time and money you'll put into this product. My lashes are not only longer, but also more separated and less clumpy without sacrificing volume.
I don't really wear a lot of makeup, and at first this product seemed redundant since I already had a good mascara. But I bought it on a whim, and now it's become a staple that I can't imagine going without.
Here is the best part: on the days when I was in a rush and didn't put this on, I found that my mascara looked better since before I started using DiorShow. Which can only mean that ... this goo did extend what wasn't there and made my lashes grow. Love it. So much that I considered using caps lock and heart symbols.

Just bought another tube at about $30 with tax....and it's worth it. Just can't beat the volume and length that this gives underneath ANY mascara. It's a fabulous primer, however, I don't think it does much as far as actually growing lashes longer; it didn't for me anyway.

Nothing beats my Shiseido mascara base which holds curls, nourishes, adds length and volume....this Diorshow primer was no exception. I'm sure it'd work great for someone that doesn't have short, stick-straight, downward-pointing, Asian lashes like me cuz it did add volume, but did not hold a curl for the kife of me. Steep price point and the brush was too big for my small eyes. Don't get me wrong, it is a high quality formula...just not for me. I look for length and most importantly the ability to hold a curl and this just didn't give it to me.

I love this product, definately the best maximizer. I have tried MUFE lash maximizer, It works good, but it dries white. The Dior one dries clear and that makes a big difference. Worth the price.

I absoloutley love this serum! I already have long eyelashes, so I honestly got this more for keeping my eyelashes in good condition & have less lash fall out. This serum goes on white, but dries to almost invisible, but there's still some traces of white left over. I was skeptical of this actually working, but I decided to buy it anyways. & wow I'm glad I did. This not only adds incredible length, volume, & holds a curl....but this also defines each lash perfectly. I've never seen anything like it. This is super buildable & makes applying any mascara a breeze. This makes my mascara application faster. I wouldn't use this right before applying mascara, because it can make your eyelashes clumpy. I put this on at night before I go to bed, & it still gives my lashes an amazing effect when I do my make up in the morning. This is pretty expensive...It's $28-$30. But, the tube is pretty big & comes with a lot. I haven't been using this that long, so I will update on if this makes my lashes grow in better & how long this tube lasts me to see if this is really worth the money. Overall, I love this & I'm happy with my purchase. This really blows all other lash serums out of the water.
**UPDATE:** I've been using this for a while now & I've come to a few conclusions. 1) This does NOT make your eyelashes miraculously grow, like the bottle says. This is only a primer & the reason it extends lashes to make them "appear" longer is because this contains fibers which extend your lashes, but temporarily. I'm not a fan of false advertising, so that's why I'm changing my 5 star review to a 4 star. The bottle should not say this makes your eyelashes grow, when they clearly know it doesn't. 2) This works best if you apply at night, not directly before applying mascara. You still can apply this before mascara, but I would only use a little bit or this will make your lashes clump easier. 3) This does help with the durability of my eyelashes. I do notice less lash fallout when I wash my eye makeup off at the end of the night, which is a major PLUS.
In conclusion, because there are more "pros" than "cons", I will probably still buy this again. Overall, what this basically does is prime your eyelashes to make your mascara go on smoother, thicken your lashes with the serum, & extend your lashes with the fiber. But, that's honestly all I was looking for this to do, so I'm good with that. Although, I will admit, I was still a little dissapointed that this did not make my lashes grow in longer/better. But then again, this is not doctor prescribed latisse. & I do agree with the other reviewers that said this is just a clear mascara. If this came in the color black, this would be a normal mascara. So, this is basically a $30 clear mascara...but it's a good one:)

this is UMAZING. today i woke up and thought i was still wearing mascara. upon poking my eyelashes, i discovered my eyelashes are NATURALLY CURLING. um, WHAT?
fyi: i have notoriously short, black, stumpy asian eyelashes.
i have been wearing this on and off for the past few months, not sure if it's this or the fish oils or biotin or what i've been taking but my eyelashes are definitely 2x as long as before. as someone who has used the revlon store dupe and revitalash or whatever, this is the only thing that has EVER made any sort of noticiable effect on my eyelashes.
bonus - also makes it look like i'm wearing falsies when i do have it on. LOVE! the tube / packaging is totes cute as well. :D

This product is amazing. Sadly I will not buy it again because it's so expensive. This product really conditions your lashes and actually makes it grow longer and thicker if you use this product religiously. It makes my eyelashes so much longer and it lifts up my eyelashes. I love this product.

First of all I want to write that I did not purchase this to achieve longer or thicker lashes. Im one of those lucky ones that has naturally long, thick lashes with a curl. I purchased the serum for better mascara results. I do like this serum but only paired with certain mascaras and it just happens to be that Lancome's Hypnose Drama is the perfect mascara for this lash maximizer. I also own Lancome's Cils booster which I like just a bit better than Dior's because Lancome's works with most of my mascaras including their own (Hypnose and Doll Lashes)
I know it sounds crazy but for some reason I noticed Dior's booster works better on volumizing mascaras while Lancome's is great on all mascaras but works best on defining and those more natural looking mascaras like Chanel's Inmitable original or intense or Lancome's Defincils (which I hate) Overall this is a great product I would recommend highly. Dior's serum and Lancomes are both excellent its a personal preference and it depends on what kind of mascaras a person uses. If it came down to it I probably would go with Lancome.

I've been using this product for about 6 months. I apply it before using my mascara and it makes my lashes longer and fuller. I also have noticed that my natural lashes have grown longer....my lashes are usually short and straight. Although quite expensive...I love it and will continue to buy.

I had your basic short Asian lashes until I started using generic Latisse. Now I have long straight lashes. I was getting them permed, but that's such a hassle, and I also thought it might be harming my lashes. So I let them go straight and checked out Dior's Lash Plumping Serum. Yowza! They don't curl my lashes but kind of push them up and extend them even longer, yet they don't get spidery at all. If they clump after mascara, I comb them with this great eyelash comb I got on Amazon. The final effect is gorgeous and ohhhhhh so worth it.

first of I'd like to say I'm a person who doesn't believe in primers regardless of where on the face you are supposed to apply them.
add to that the fact that this tube costs $40 over here made me really hesitate to try it. however I finally caved in and gave it a go.
this primer applies white which can be annoying if you make a mistake but lets you know that there is something on your lashes so you're doing it right.... after a coat of this I applied my usual Mascara and the difference was really dramatic!!!! my lashes looked thicker and longer, the curls held! my Mascara isn't flakie so I can't comment on that but there was ALOT less clotting and my lashes didn't end up in the sink when I remove my make up later in the evening.
this tube is pretty expensive but it actually gives noticeable results, I'd recommend it fore Mascara lovers!

First off, I would like to start off with the price, I got mine at canadian sephora for 35$. It is pretty pricey, but it is definitely worth the price. After trying this out for a week and half, I absolutely love it, it makes applying masacra so much easier and not to mention it adds a little more length than just applying masacra by itself. I usually apply it once in the morning before I apply my masacra and once at night before I go to bed. I do notice that my lashes are a bit thicker/dense, but haven't really notice that it lengthening yet. Overall, I love this product, not to mention the packaging is really pretty too.

I've always wanted doll-like lashes, but am not skilled enough to reliably apply false lashes without spending hours I don't have. With this primer and my HG mascara (scandal queen fairy drops) my eyelashes are super huge; almost as long as my boyfriend's :(
The Package: Pretty big, which makes me feel better about the $28 price tag. The wand is long with lots of thin plastic combs (not bristles).
The Product: A white primer that lengthens,curls, and makes my lashes look like falsies. While I wish the primer wasn't white, it makes it pretty obvious if you miss a spot on your lashes, which is good, i guess. It doesn't smudge, but then again you coat the primer in mascara, and my mascara is smudge proof. When I take this off though, my lashes feel soft and moisturized. I'm not sure if it truly does lengthen the lashes over time, but we will see. Holds a curl well.
The Price: Ouch. But then, you do get a ton of product, so overall...not that bad.

I think this product works so well! I bought it from a department store at a CD counter and i had a voucher for £15 off, and because i had heard great reviews i decided to try it out (i have asian lashes, and i heard great reviews from people who also have asian lashes...) it was at original price £22, but with my 15 off i only had to pay a total of £7! Bargain! Regardless of the voucher i think i would have purchased it at £22 anyway, just to try it out.
I must say, no regrets. I love this serum. before i use 2 different types of mascara, one lenghting and one volume together. but now i use CD maximizer along with either YSL faux cils or Lancome hypnose. I think its just great how it also claims to make your lashes grow as well.
I love the packaging, mainly because it's white! I have a thing for packaging (i do graphic design) and sometimes when a packaging is attractive or unique, i end up buying the product (if i can afford)
Would i buy this product again? Definitely. I have still yet to experiment this lash serum with other brands of mascaras yet!

At first I thought that this product did not do much but after a couple of months of use my lashes are noticeably longer!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I don't like this. It makes my lashes clump and spidery looking. It is also pretty expensive.
