I love all Dior mascaras. The formulas are great and I love the brushes. The prices are high but I will pay for a good mascara. At first this mascara flakes a lot. But once it dried out a bit, it became the most amazing mascara. I would use it on clients and they loved it.
This was the first high-end mascara I ever owned, so it does have a special place in my heart. It was also when I realized that some mascaras are better than others.
I absolutely love the brush because it's super big and gets every single lash. It coats my lashes so well, and I feel like a pin-up doll.
I feel like this is one of the only mascaras that thickens, volumizes, and curls. I only wish it wasn't so pricey so more people could buy it. I never want to spend so much money on something that I'll need to throw out soon, but I've never had this problem because I always use out this mascara.
Worth every penny!
I tried many different Mascaras out there and I always come back to this goodie! Pricey but worth every penny that you spent on it!
Give to your lashes lengthening, thickness, and curvedness!
One coat for a Natural looking and two or more for a dramatic look!
You'll never go wrong with this baby!
Smells better than it works.
Kinda weird, but true. I got a sample of this from Sephora and was pretty stoked to try it out. Truth be told, I was kind of disappointed. The brush is large and has nicely spaced bristles but the consistency isn't on par with, say Benefit's Bad Gal or Lancome. The black is pretty black but for the price I'd go with something else.
Formula smudges all over.
I think this is one of those mascaras you either love or hate. For me, it's a serious case of the latter. To be fair, I really wanted to love this- so much that I even bought this mascara 2x, then tried the waterproof, then the Black Out, the Exstase, and even Iconic!! My gripes with Dior Show are endless though...
First, the brush is too big for me. I'm sure it's fine for most, but for my Asian eyes & lashes it's too much, and becomes a game of Operation, trying not to hit my eyeball/skin with the giant brush. Also, this giant brush makes it impossible for me to apply the product to my lower lashes. I end up using a clean masaca wand from other used up mascaras to apply with. The worst thing about this mascara though is the formula- it's one of the worst mascara formulas I've tried. It's goopy, and after it's applied to my lashes, it's still goopy. It smudges on my lash line within the same hour it was applied. ugh. I've even tried using different mascara bases underneath, but Dior Show tends to look clumpy when applied with a base. My first tube of this, I used around 10x while trying to figure out how to make this mascara work for me, but I found it dried out and became flaky within this time. Double ugh.
Anyway, I have friends who consider this their HG mascara (even some Asian), so I suggest you give it a try before purchasing.
Like the product not the price.
I like this. The price, I do not. I am currently using the black, I also own Blue but have yet to try it on . Because I clean my brush before every use, I always start with fresh product and my lashes are separated and lengthened and well coated, the mascara is not globed on. I use one coat wait 2 minutes and apply a second coat to the outside 1/3 only.
So this is my secret to fighting dry out: every day I pull the want out and wipe it off with a piece of TP, clean. Then I dip the wand back into the product and apply.
Let's face it - you (SHOULD) only keep mascara for 3 months, this is a big tube with a lot of product, so if you're emptying this tube with my method and your application prior to 90 days, you're using too much. lol.
At $24 I probably will not rebuy this. I can't justify the results to the cost.
Overpriced. Mascara is a tough buy sometimes. I fell into the allure of name brand hype and marketing and I bought this expecting it to be a god send. It was ok...maybe even good. But certainly not worth the price. As others have mentioned, it dries out very quickly, and I've it flake on me during photo shoots in windy or very hot conditions, not a good thing.
If you want thick, full lashes for a better price, stick with L'Oreal's Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black and save yourself the money.
Gr8, but dry out FAST
It really does "leaves lashes ultra thick, long, and curled", but it's ridiculously expensive & it dries out very fast. you can achieve the same look by using a combination of different drug store's mascara
Good but overpriced!
The first time I bought it I loved it, then the second time around it was like 'eh' ... Then it just got too expensive! I agree with others, you can get better mascaras for less than half the price of this one ... I'd say to give it a test at Sephora if you get a chance.
I used to use this stuff religiously, but then I realized what am i doing? It dries out really fast.. and I mean FAST. I was going through so many of these it was getting ridiculous. I'm not saying it's not a good product, you can get better for less..I liked it but i don't know if i'll buy it again considering Revlon's Grow Luscious mascara is much better for about 8 dollars.
