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.

answer 1
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!

Two things that I usually do when I apply mascara is I'll apply each stroke slowly and sometimes I slowly wiggle the brush a bit to keep the lashes from clumping together. Also I have a nice tool (don't know what it's called) that's made for separating your lashes. One side is basically a dry mascara wand and the one is a row metal spikes (the ends are blunt) that you use to comb through your lashes. You can probably find one in a drugstore.

My best advice is, when you first place the brush at the base of your upper lashes, zig zag the brush from side to side as your pull it through your eyelashes. This really gets all the little itty bitty lashes and deposits a good amount. Repeat this step on your other eye. Then go back to the first eye (which should be pretty dry by now) and just slightly swab at the tips of the outter lashes. This deposits the tiniest bit on the tips and makes them longer instead of blobbing on a pile of mascara and getting tarantula legs that clump together. One heavyhanded zig zagged swipe, and then a few seconds to dry, and then a tiny ping or two on the outter tips of the outter lashes. Gorgeous.

I think applying any mascara is all about how you hold the brush. If you angle the brush vertically to coat your lashes, the mascara seems to distribute more evenly for your first coat. Then, for my second coat I hold the wand horizontally and make sure that the tips of my lashes have as much mascara as the bases. Of course, you should curl your lashes previously with a lash curler.

are you using a good lash separator? tweezerman makes an amazing one with metal bristles. when the mascara tube is new, the mascara also globs on, but this is a good thing. just use a lash separator (maybe 20 seconds after applying so that the mascara dries a bit). apply another coat and then use the lash separator again.

also, when i apply mascara i apply from the top and from the bottom on the upper lash. i have long lashes and this makes them look even longer and thicker. hope this helps!

When this product is close to being all used up, the brush gets all dried out. Try not to pump air into the container and don't wipe the brush against the edge of the container. This will damage the brush and will make it totally unusable. This mascara is awesome! Give it another chance, even if it means buying a new one. Just be careful the brush doesn't get damaged. It will give you awesome lashes.

When I use this product, I first layer it on the top of the lash and work out. It is kind of weird at first but it gives you more volume and that extra oomph. Next, I will use the tip and work from the inside of my eye to the outer corners of my eye. If it clumps, you are putting on too much mascara. Use the full part of the brush to even out the lashes. It should look bold and defined after. If you still have problems, you should go to Sephora and ask them for help! The associates there always give great tips!

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!

I never even notice any sort of smell to the mascara when I am applying it to my eyelashes! If you have some sort of reaction to it, maybe you are allergic to it? :( I wear contacts and I haven't had a problem with using the DiorShow Black Out Mascara yet.

Question
Will this work for lashes that need waterproof mascara?
i'm asian and i don't have long lashes to begin with. but what makes it more frustrating is i always need a waterproof mascara cuz if it's not, my lashes will droop down and not be able to get volume. my major need is volume more than length. i have always wanted to try dior's mascara, and since i know dior is known for its big and bold makeup, i was wondering will the regular black out work the same magic as the waterproof? a big draw back for the waterproof one is also cause i read how its so hard to remove. i also have very sensitive eyes... i currently am using lacome's hypnose in waterproof. and sometimes my eye lids get itchy. help please make up experts!

The original formula is much better than the waterproof version in my opinion. I found the waterproof was too dry to put on and had to work with it more. The results of the original formula is dramatic. I also have asian eyes and my eyelashes are thin. This will do the trick.

the waterproof version is excellent and does not come off easily

Have you tried using baby oil as makeup remover? I find it removes make up just as well as any 'eye makeup remover' on the market, crazy cheap and conditions my lids and lashes.
Also, have you tried using a primer? This might help not weigh down your lashes with a heavy mascara but still get you good volume and curl. I like the DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum

I have used the regular DiorShow Black Out and the waterproof version. I wear contacts so I have used other brands of waterproof mascaras. In this case I recommend the regular. It stays on my lashes all day, and I never have a problem with it flaking or my lashes drooping. (If you need a VERY waterproof mascara - this is it!!)

try the regular first. Sephora will take it back and let you buy the waterproof if the first one doesnt work

I have sensitive watery eyes and this prouduct does not bother me. I wear the waterproof and do not find it difficult to remove. (I use almay pads). It works great and is the darkest most defining.

I've had very poor luck with the non-waterproof version of this mascara. The look is good but it smears and runs. If your eyes are sensitive you'll probably be particularly sensitive to this.

The regular black out mascara is definitely not water-friendly. It will easily come off on your fingers when exposed to water.

It does hold the curl from an eyelash curler, but is not waterproof.

I wouldn't recommend any other mascara!! Also, my eyes are very sensitive too...try almay OIL FREE makeup pads...you can get them at any drugstore and they work awesome! Especially if you have any trouble getting this mascara off..which i don't at all :)

I would go for the water proof diorShow. It isn't too hard to remove. All you need is a good makeup remover or just use a little vaseline on a small cotton ball and with a swipe its gone!

I've tried both and love the blackout! If you want your lashes to pop this is the one to go for! Its more intense than the other. I wear it am and pm. I get many compliments. I hope this helps.
