Diorshow Mascara

I’ve tried the Christian Dior Diorshow mascara many times before, but never written a review about it, so here goes.

Let me start by saying that there’s a reason that this mascara ends up on all the Editor’s lists but never in the hands or makeup bags of most makeup artists. On top of being one of the more expensive mascaras on the market, it really doesn’t deliver anything that a drugstore mascara can’t. Add that to the fact that it’s a little difficult to use on account of the massive wand.

Want to know how large it really is? Check out the picture of it next to a wand from CoverGirl VolumeExact Mascara.

The wand on the left is the VolumeExact, while the right one is the Diorshow wand. The Diorshow wand is huge which makes it a little difficult to use. It’s hard to get mascara on every single lash and not have a little bit smear on your eyelids.

I have to say though, that once I got used to the wand, this was not a terrible mascara. I was able to build volume with two or three coats, and the formula is stellar. I didn’t see any flaking but it washed off very easily at the end of the day. I even fell asleep with it on one night and woke up surprised to see it was still there, so it does wear very well.

$39 at Dior counters.

    Great post about mascara. I am putting this on my “Blogs to Review.” Also, I hope you don’t mind that I added you to the Total Beauty links on my site. Would you consider adding ours to your site?

    I love the rose fragrance of the Diorshow.

    I have a question about mascara. I’m 27 years old, and have never learned to build volume by applying more than one layer. It’s always too much. And I see girls everyday who put on WAY too much mascara. It simply doesn’t look good. I always stick to one layer (I also have pretty long and dark eyelashes to start with…) but is there a trick how to do this?! I’ve always wondered.

    Bodil, I have an idea how to solve your dilemma, but just stay tuned for it.

    I think that for the most part it comes down to personal preference. I know women who prefer spider lashes, and although that’s not my style, there’s really nothing I can do or say to change their minds.
