The brush is almost an inch and a half. Here is a picture next to a ruler so you can see for yourself the depth and length! Great mascara! Be sure to get some alcohols wipes (the types for eyeglasses) to clean around the rim of the mascara tube periodically, this will keep you from getting dried mascara clumps on your wand!

I haven't actually measured the brush, but it looks to be a little bit over an inch. The brush may look overwhelming and too big to do any real good, but it works so well in reaching every lash - even the tiny ones in the corner of your eye. It works SO well.

The brush is very different than Dior Show. The black is incredibly black and it was a little flaky. Furthermore, I wore it when I went to work out and it really smeared with persperation-- lots of smudging after a work out. Moderately lenghtening, not really volumizing.

answer 2
I think there is a big difference between the two. Here's my take:

1) The original Dior Show has a more bristley/teddy bear like brush - the Black Out is a little more open between the bristles.

2) The color is definitely the biggest difference. The Black Out has MUCH more pigment and gives a great black look. VERY smooth when applying!

3) I personally feel like it stays on a little better than the original Dior Show.

original diorshow is much better! it's more volumizing and really defines the lashes well. however, the black out is darker in color (it's like jet black/midnight black). if you want more natural/full looking lashes, go for the diorshow. i don't like the brush on the black out as much...but the color is still amazing for that dramatic effect (just have a mascara comb on hand so you can separate your lashes after applying blackout)

It's much more of an intense look. I like it more than the original. It's the same big wand, but it's a much darker color. I love it! If you're a girl who likes the dramatic, this is the mascara for you. I go back to the original when I go with a natural look where I don't want it to look like I have makeup on. I think that you should always keep this mascara and the original on hand. That way you can choose between full and flirty and bold and sexy!

answer 9
The difference in brushes allows the mascaras to go on differently. DiorShow has a thicker, more volumized brush, and allows for the mascara to spread more evenly with less clumps. The smaller brush of the Blackout mascara allows for more of the makeup to go onto your lashes, resulting in more globs but also in more color. I had to spend more time letting the Blackout mascara dry and separating my eyelashes than I do with the DiorShow. I didn't try layering it over DiorShow mascara, or any mascara, since I bought Blackout in lieu of others as my main mascara when I ran out, but I would imagine using it as a layer when your first coat of mascara is already dried and your eyelashes won't be so easily able to clump wouldn't be a bad idea.

This is a beautiful mascara for anyone and everyone. It's really difficult to go wrong with this mascara no matter your coloring or age.

is this hard to remove ?
The sales person at Sephora used either Diorshow or Blackout (can't remember which) on me and i thought the result was pretty nice but i did not purchase it. At the end of the day when i got home i found it INCREDIBLY hard to remove. After washing face, using 2 cotton balls full of eye makeup remover i still had mascara sticking to lashes/under eyes when i woke up the next day. I then showered and used more remover and was STILL getting mascara off ! I'm wondering is this anyone else's experience with these mascaras ?

Actually, I have found this mascara to be one of the easiest to remove. I'm not sure what kind of eye makeup remover you are using, so here are my suggestions:

Olive oil. You want to put some on a cotton square, close your eye, and press over the lashes. Count to five, then sweep off in one direction.

Never rub your eyes back and forth, you'll just wind up with a mess and can potentially hurt your eyes.

Origins Pure Cream cleanser. I use this every night to remove my makeup and cleanse my skin. If you want to try a different version, Origins Clean Energy works well too.

Kiss My Face olive oil face bar. This is extremely gentle and great for sensitive or acne prone skins. Since its main ingredient is olive oil, it will dissolve makeup. I've used it to take off Bobbi Brown liquid gel liner - it works!

Origins Well Off eye makeup remover. This is my #1, most favorite eye makeup remover. One of the main ingredients is rose water, which is really nourishing and gentle on the skin. If the product doesn't come off with this, it shouldn't be on my face.

Always read your ingredient list. If you're unsure of whether a product is potentially harmful, I recommend you check out Good Guide. For iPhone users, there is a great app you can download for free that lets you scan bar codes using your phone and gives you an immediate analysis of the ingredients of the product.

Good luck, and I hope this helps you!

Question
How can I wash off my mascara after the day?
I just recently bought waterproof blackout mascara and I tried to wash it off with warm water and facial cleanser but it would not come off. Then I tried eye make-up remover and still, would not come off!! I pulled out 4 lashes and it was just crazy. I tried putting some more on this morning and it made my lashes look disgusting. I want to know if I can either return it and get the non-waterproof or any suggestions on how to get it off my lashes at the end of the day.

I would definitely return the waterproof and try the regular formula. I personally love DiorShow Black Out and had purchased a waterproof version. Absolutely hated it. It was much more dry than the original and took a lot longer to get the same effect as the original. I have thin eyelashes so the application of the mascara is a big factor to how much you need to put on and how much clumping and flaking will occur.

Have you tried baby oil? A friend recommended this to me years ago and I haven't looked back. It's gentle and gets rid of makeup easily while coniditoning the eyes and lashes.

Try Clinique's Take The Day Off (Purple) Remover in either the bottle (liquid) or tub (cream). I use the liquid if I take it off before bed, but if I am too lazy, I put a little cream on each eyelid before the shower, rub it in, use some water to lather, and then I rinse it off when I wash my face.

I use Albolene make-up remover. You can find it at any drugstore. It's in a white tub with a blue cover. I have used it for years and would never use anything else. It's petroleum based and similar to Vaseline but better. One tub lasts over a year. It's wonderful.

I Love this mascara, however, it will not come off with anything other than vaseline for me. It also irritates my eyes but I have yet to find another mascara that works so well on my lashes...

I use Sephora Brand make-up remover...I just wipe over my eyes, using a light circular motion, and wipe off with cotton (I also use Sephora Brand Makeup Removal Pads) and then wash my face as normal. Stock up now...the make-up remover is on sale - it's cheaper than buying a drugstore brand! My eyes are pretty sensitive, too, and this has worked brilliantly for me.

I have the same issue with the waterproof (olay mascara and make up remover wouldnt do it), try Boscia make up-break up cool cleansing oil, it worked for me. (Use it on a dry face before you wash it, use the oil, rinse, then follow with your cleaner)

I have had the same issue so I never buy waterproof. Blackout stays pretty good. Try babyoil It feels weird but shouldnt hurt.
