The mascara I took away with me on Holiday was Dior’s Diorshow Black Out Waterproof Mascara. How did I pick which one to take? I did hip-dip-do…
With a lash perm in tow, I can basically wear any mascara without suffering from the dreaded drooping (how I envy ladies with the natural curl!).
DiorShow Black Out Mascara gives your lashes a little more oomph and a lot more drama. Intensified by ultra-black, kohl pigments, the formula glides on smoothly and draws each lash out to show-stopping lengths. Wear it alone, or layer it over DiorShow to glamour-eyes in an instant!
I’ve never tried a Diorshow mascara before this – I guess I knew it would be too heavy for my puny lashes, but I can see why people speak highly of this mascara.
It’s black – super dark black, and a lovely texture – easy to pull through the lashes and the result is instant…none of this messing about with layers, one layer and BOOM, noticeable difference!
The brush is quite big – this concerned me as smaller brushes work well for my short lashes…
But it wasn’t too bad! The only thing with huge brushes it that I am more likely to smear the product on my eyelid – I had a big of this but because my lashes are so curled at the moment, I seem to be doing it with most mascara’s I’m trying out.
Anyway, on holiday I had no time to mess about with 50 layers of mascara so I would whip this on quickly and I’d be out the door.
Here is the result with one coat – I LOVE. It was so rich in colour and easy to apply…no clumping either:
I guess what I liked the most about this mascara is that it doesn’t take much to get a great result from it – it’s easy like that.
Now that I’ve got a lash perm I can basically judge mascara’s slightly differently (Whereas before, holding curl was of paramount importance to me). So I see that the Diorshow Blackout is an EXCELLENT mascara, really impressive to use and worth the premium price.
Now – whilst this mascara is waterproof, it stayed good under all normal conditions however, it did not stand up to hardcore pool play (that sounds wrong).
I wore this to the pool (research reasons) and it smudged under my eye. I have a photo of this somewhere – I look like a panda.
I said to Mr C, Why didn’t you tell me I had all that make up under me eyes? .
He said, I thought it was supposed to be like that…it was so…straight.
- Rich Colour
- Creamy texture
- Instant volume and length
- Water resistant but will run if you wear it for a dip in the pool!
Verdict: Love this mascara, having tested about 20 in the last month it stands out from the crowd.
