A good mascara can make your eyelashes fuller and longer. A great mascara can carry a look alone. And an amazing mascara can make you spend your last $29.50 on it.
I have tried many, many, many mascaras, but Dior Diorshow in Black 090 is my all-time favorite. (And I’m updating this post nine years after I originally wrote it, so now we’re talking many, many, many, many mascaras.) It lengthens, volumizes, doesn’t clump and doesn’t smudge. Hell, I think it even did my laundry for me one time. There’s a reason it is a cult favorite–it’s the best.
I use the original Diorshow on myself and non-wedding clients (I don’t love the waterproof version, so I use something different on brides and bridal parties). The original Diorshow has a few relatives, including Blackout, Iconic, Iconic Overcurl and Pump n’ Volume, but I prefer the original Diorshow for my base coat (okay, base coats). I use Clinique High Impact Mascara as my second mascara, because it adds length and has an inky black factor that I love when layered on top of Diorshow, but that’s a different blog post.
The Diorshow wand is the biggest, baddest wand ever. Once you try it, you’ll have a hard time seeing other mascara wands as anything but wimpy. This magical mascara also has the faint scent of roses. How often do you use eye makeup that smells good? It’s a treat.
I often get asked for product recommendations, and sometimes my answers vary depending on skin type, coloring, the person’s style, etc. But I 100% recommend this mascara to anyone who has eyelashes.
You can get it at Sephora and add onto your Beauty Insider points.
Have a beautiful day 🙂
