Dior Diorshow Iconic Mascara

22 Aug

For some reason, I hate to spend a lot of money on mascara. More than any other makeup purchase, expensive mascara seems to feel indulgent. That is until I discovered Dior’s Diorshow Iconic! Not to be confused with the acclaimed Diorshow, which I find much less impressive. A tube of Diorshow feels stiff on the lashes, even though it creates a beautiful full set. But the tube does loose its umpf, drying out very quickly. (The same issues apply to the infamous L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara, in my opinion.)

Dior Iconic on the other hand,  lasts an unbelievably longtime.  Granted, you should toss mascara after 3 months to prevent infection, bacteria, etc. Thus, the main reason I hate to spend a lot of money on mascara. But Dior Iconic is truly ICONIC! It defines and curls lashes for a lifted eye. It lengthens, yet thickens beautifully! And all of it looks natural. Soft, supple, full, long, separated, blackest black lashes.  Not spidery, not clumpy, not smudgy, not flaky. Lashes stay flexible and lifted all day, without being dry and cakey. You wont have the “why-are-my-lashes-drooping-by-3-in-the-afternoon-syndrome,” with this extra hold formula. And the best part, if you want to build the drama up for a night out, thanks to its velvety texture, you can reapply Iconic flawlessly, for a buildable false lash look.

Now the brush is a bit odd. Rubbery  and untraditional is the best way to describe it, but I love it. Dior calls it oblique. It does take a nanosecond to get used to, but it will make other brushes seem fussy and a tad ineffective in comparison.

Dior Iconic is THE ticket for truly show-stopping, jaw-dropping  lashes. Hands down, the BEST MASCARA I’ve tried to date! Give it a shot!! I think you are gonna love it!!

TIP:

For a stunning fan of lashes, layer extra coats on the ends. Really get your brush into the base of your lashes and pull up, wiggling the mascara wand as you go to get them separated but well-coated.

FROM DIOR ON THEIR UNIQUE BRUSH:

“Inspired by the tailoring technique of cutting fabric on the bias to create maximum curve, the Iconic brush features soft silicone bristles that spiral around the stem to lift, curl, and separate every lash.”

    Yes yes yes! When saw the link to this article, thought “of course only Iconic can make eyelashes endless!”. By the way, when use Extase mascara right after this one, it also adds volume. Thank you for the article, Elena!
