New Formula, New Opinion: The Updated Dior Diorshow Mascara

Honestly, it had been so long since I originally tested out the iconic Diorshow mascara that I couldn’t even remember what I thought about it. Except for the fact that I wasn’t blown away by it enough to keep it, and ended up passing it along to someone else. Then there was a bunch of fuss about them reformulating the product and enriching it with microfibers.

New Dior Diorshow Mascara Beauty Blog Review New Formulation

It’s easy to get caught up in the hype of a new product launch. You might think that the more reviews you read, the more side-by-side swatch comparison photos you see, or videos you watch detailing your favorite blogger’s newest favorite thing (that will inevitably be replaced by the next product launch) would make you a little jaded and wary of the whole process. I guess it does to some extent, but not enough to dissuade me from wanting to try the majority of it. Especially when it’s mascara. If I leave the house with a three product face, it’s mascara, eyeliner, and a brow product.

I’ve been officially testing this mascara out for about two months now. I definitely like to get a feel for the product once it dries out a little bit compared to when you first purchase it too. In a rare turn of events, I’m loving it just as much now as I did the first week. The formula is a little on the drier side (holla!), so there is no concern about my lashes clumping together five minutes after application. It’s great with volume, and the black is pretty black.

I love how buildable the formula is without getting flaky. Specifically, I can apply it in the morning, and then after work just add a couple more layers to add some volume and depth before happy hour. It has a nice semi-floral scent to it as well, very similar to the Guerlain mascaras if you’re at all familiar.

It’s not waterproof, which I prefer. I haven’t noticed any slippage or melt throughout the day, and it is really easy to take off with makeup remover. Points!

All and all, it may be on the higher end price wise, but it’s definitely on the higher end quality wise too. You can find the new formula of the Dior Diorshow mascara here.

  • I love how honest you are! I also wasn’t blown away by the original, I actually passed it on to my mum but I might try the reformulated version come pay day, I like the sound of the buildable layers because I’m constantly reapplying mascara and hate when it goes clumpy/flaky. The scent sounds lovely, and I’m glad they’ve made it a little drier this time, I always prefer mascaras once they’ve dried out a little.

    • Most of the time I’ll open a mascara (and put the cap back on, but just to introduce a little oxygen to it), and then leave it for a week before really giving it a ago. 🙂

    I also was not impressed by the original Diorshow mascara but I might see if I can get a sample of this newly formulated mascara and try this version out 🙂 Mascaras are so tricky for me because out of all the mascaras I have tried, only one or two actually work well on my lashes. It is nice to know that there are new formulas coming out every now and then which I can try though! 🙂 XX

    • When I was in Sephora last they had a mini of it as a 100 point perk! I know what you mean though, mascaras are so hit or miss with me. I either tend to love them, or be super apathetic about them. Haha x

  • I didn’t like the original Diorshow that much either, so I’m not particularly tempted by this one. The brush is so darn BIG that I always ended up poking my eyes with the original one, I found it hard to maneuver. They didn’t change the brush with this relaunch, did they?


    • Looked into it, and it looks like it’s the same brush as before – just a different formula. That being said, I love the bigger brush, but am really picky when it comes to brush size/shape. Enough so that I’ll keep an extra brush I like on hand to test out mascaras (that come with the plastic wands ones I don’t like) before writing them off. Though it’s a little excessive of a move for a high end product haha
