So I came on here after testing this out and I was soooo surprised by all the negative reviews!! I LOVE this mascara...it makes my lashes super long. The packaging is really cute too. I think as long as you follow the directions and don't wait for a coat to dry before applying another it's fine. I had a litttttle bit of clumpage but nothing my lash comb couldn't fix fast. No, I didn't see shine (didn't really expect that, nor do I care) and no it doesn't volumnize (I added LashBlast on the top and it was PERFECT), but does it even advertise volume? I don't get why people would complain about something it's not even supposed to do. I can't afford my HG DiorShow lately so for now, the combo of this and LashBlast are awesome, if not equal. I will wear it to work tomorrow and see if flaking is an issue or not.
This is AWESOME as a nighttime mosturizer. It's way to greasy/heavy for me to wear in the daytime, but when I apply this at night I wake up with a very even complexion, as opposed to my normal redness. However, the first time I used this I stopped for about a week and a half because I woke up in the morning with two small pimples. But I'm glad I gave it another go because this time it seemed to help CLEAR UP some small pimples I already had around my nose. So, I'm unsure if the first time was the product, or jsut my skin. I love the fact that its all natural as well.
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Black Out Mascara

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.
This is definitely my HG mascara, and it would be perfection for me if I was not poor and could afford it all the time, haha. It really makes my lashes look great, long and thick. It makes my eyes pop after curling them, which i love since my eyes are on the smaller side. The only downside is sometimes if I dont apply it just right the curl lessens a bit. Other than that i LOVE it!!!
I really love this mascara...I either wear it alone, or layer it over my DiorShow because I find the wand is good for separating lashes as a second coat. I dont think the size of the wand is a problem like others do and I have no problems with clumping or flaking. The only problem occasionally is applying on bottom lashes because of the wand size, but as long as I take my time it's fine. If you cant afford the pricier mascaras, this is the best drugstore find in my opinion. It's just as good as Dior show, just depends on my mood that day.
I absolutely LOVE this eyeliner. I usually have the problem of lining my top lid and then when I curl my lashes, I find that the liner isnt close enough to my lashes. I don't have this problem at all with the smudge pot, its basically goof proof. I bought it in gray but it looks pretty close to black, just right for daytime. It's the only liner I've ever used that STAYS on ALL day. I cannot say enough good things about the smudge pot, I'm getting brown next...defintely my HG.
