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.
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.
