Dior Diorshow New Look Mascara - Review

Hi All!

I purchased Dior's Diorshow New Look mascara just before Christmas in a gift set containing a mini 5 colour eyeshadow (I've wanting to be trying Dior's eyeshadow for a while but it is sooooo expensive!!!) for Ā£23. Now, for a mascara this is expensive but for a Dior product I think it is reasonable, especially with the addition of the eyeshadow.

One thing I have found is that mascaras are a very personal thing, as everyone has different types of eyelashes and has a different idea of how they want their lashes to look - I think all too often this gets forgotten. My sister, for example, can rock almost any mascara. I struggle to do this as my lashes are dead straight. Even when curled, they want to revert back to their naturally straight form. What is more frustrating is that I have curly hair that won't straighten! Bizarre & now slightly off topic!

This mascara is supposed to have "lash multiplying effect, volume & care" and contains 10ml of product. I purchased my Dior Diorshow New Look mascara in 090 New Look Black.

The wand of this mascara is not like one I have come across before. It is almost like two separate brushes! It is a rubber brush, the base of which contains what I would call standard sized bristles similar to those of the MaxFactor mascaras (which don't do a great deal for me). The tip of the brush contains smaller bristles, spaced closer together than those at the base of the brush. I can only guess that having these two types of bristles on one brush will act in the same way as if you were using two mascaras with different brushes to create a specific effect. It took me a few days to get used to this brush but I find that every time I change mascaras.

Back to what I was saying about how mascaras are a personal thing...

I have straight lashes :-( As a result of this, my mascaras need to hold a curl without dropping through the day. This product does a good job with this. Not only that, but I wear dark green tinted lenses for a variety of medical conditions. Because of this I want my eyes to stand out as much as possible so I prefer the dark, full lash look. Here are the three steps I take to put on this mascara. The intensity is such that even though I like stand out lashes, I would happily go out to work with just one coat of mascara on my top lashes.

The mini eyeshadow palette that came as part of the set contains 2.2g & is in the colour 734 Grege. As this post is about my 'product of the month' I am not going to go in to detail about the eyeshadow palette here. As it was part of a set I did want to pay lip service to it & show you some pics! :)

For those of you who this is important to (me included), here are the ingredients for the Dior Diorshow New Look mascara

I'd love to know what mascaras you would recommend (and your eyelash type!).
