No. 28 Christian Dior Diorshow Mascara
Diorshow Mascara is iconic. The choice of lots of women worldwide. In 2015, the mascara has gone through a make-over. It comes in a surprising diversity of shades – as many as eight deep and highly-pigmented hues (gray, classic black, two shades of sky blue and violet). Dior mascara has been enriched with unique micro-fibers that are supposed to give a vast length, volume and separation. Diorshow is to be a saver for women who have short and thin lashes and the fans of dramatic, burlesque, false lashes effect. The nylon micro-fibers really provide such an effect but you need multiple coats. One layer makes no changes in the eyelash appearance. Still, applying many coats is risky – fibers weigh lashes down and give an unnatural look.
Diorshow Mascara comes in a tasteful, simple, black tube with a golden Dior logo. It looks very refined. The nylon wand with densely-arranged bristles gives a nice makeup effect but applying too many coats may leave clumps and a very unnatural, exaggerated look.
The mascara holds 11.5 ml and costs $28.
Diorshow Mascara is dedicated to short and thin lashes that need beautifying. Micro-fibers can be problematic for contact lens wearers.
