I’m not a fan of logos splashed all over the packaging. 99% of the time, it just looks tacky. Plus, it’s like you’re paying for the privilege to advertise the brand…
But I have to admit, Dior got it right with their Diorshow Iconic Mascara. The tube has the Dior logo embossed over the silver tube, yet it looks so pretty and sophisticated. I guess every rule has its exception.
Good design continues inside. The brush has bristles that are closed together and slanted to grab every single last – even the tiniest inner ones. Just twirl the brush as you apply it – done.
The formula’s light. A couple of coats give your lashes amazing lenght, definition and separation while still managing to look natural. It’s like your lashes but better. Just be careful not to apply too much or your lashes will look spidery. That’s never a good look.
I dig this look, don’t get me wrong. But what I seek the most from a mascara is volume, volume and more volume. I want to look like I’m wearing false lashes without all the hassle of putting those on (I still can’t get the hang of it).
Dior Diorshow Iconic fails in the volumising department. Sure, it’ll give you some. It just doesn’t give you the drama. Oh, and it doesn’t curl, either. Use your eyelash curler for that.
This mascara has its drawbacks, but then it was never designed to give you a dramatic, super voluminous curly look. This is a mascara for people who have naturally long-lashes or want great length with a natural appearance.
If that’s you, you’ll love it. It lasts for the entire day without smudging, flaking or clumping. It’s hard to remove but then that’s the reason behind its incredible staying power. Can’t complain, can you?
