Dior Diorshow Iconic Mascara

What it is:A mascara with an innovative oblique brush that curls and defines lashes.What it does:Diorshow Iconic Mascara is the latest in Dior's dazzling range of bestselling mascaras. Created backstage for fashion shows and celebrity red carpet events, the Iconic mascara features an oblique cut brush that gives an extra lash-curling effect. With its long, skinny teeth, the plastic comb brush allows you to precisely coat each lash one-by-one, creating a long, separated fan of lashes that usually takes the skill of a makeup artist. The extra-hold formula provides a 24 hour-curl with 100% smudge-proof results. What else you need to know:Inspired by the tailoring technique of cutting fabric on the bias to create maximum curve, the Iconic brush features soft silicone bristles that spiral around the stem to lift, curl, and separate every lash.

answer 1
When my eyelashes started growing back after chemo, I thought I would treat myself to Diorshow Iconic. I hate it, it clumps, it makes my eyelashes, which are long and thin, look like like long and thin spikes. I does not smudge though. The brush is so long that I find it very difficult to apply without smearing around my eyes. I will order the sample mascara set and that will be fun and easy to apply. My Dior Iconic will go into the trash.

Sadly, I would not. I generally use clinique mascara but i've tried drug store mascara as well as sephora brand and i think it was called buxom. This mascara is most like maybelleine volume express mascara(that big yellow tube). It is flaky and itchy, it does have a very pretty tube and it is a nice dark color, but i'd just go buy volume express. That said, splurge on their eyeshadow, but their mascara's not worth it.

This is my daytime mascara. I wear it to work everyday. It combs my lashes well, give it a bit of colour and a bit of length, and curls nicely. Its perfect if you're going for the natural subtle look. If you want dramatic eyes this isnt the mascara for you. I recommend the lancome hypnose drama which is absoloutely amaaazing for a nightime look, it made my lashes super long and thick in just 1 stroke, and l use the diorshow iconic for my lower lashes. Hope that helped!

omg yes. i've used sephora's, mac's, lancome's and i've just always loved dior's. i first starting using diorshow four years ago and i've loved it ever since. but now that diorshow iconic has come out, it's wayyyyyyyyy better. for me, it just gives a little more oomph than the regular diorshow or even diorshow blackout. i think it's great and i've got puny little lashes.

I've tried every masacar from expensive to cheap. This one is a keeper! It provides coloring, voluminizing, separating, curling, staying curled all day, water & sweat resistant , yet is easy to remove. It also does not have a fragrance... I've found other mascaras irritating do to their odor before drying. I am a contact lens wearer as well. You will need to use an eyelash curler less.

I've reviewed this item, and while my taste in mascara may change daily (since our lashes behave differently daily), this is one of my all time favorites, and is one of the best I've tried. My review says it all, but I'll summarize it for you-- no clumps, lengthens, curls, volumizes, great innovative brush and formula. This is my personal favorite of all of Dior's Mascaras.

I'm not sure how long it will last, but mascaras are always optimal at their freshest point. Mascaras dryout when we pump the wand because oxygen gets in. I figure that eventually even un-opned mascaras will be suseptible to oxygen over time. Keep in mind that we don't even know the exact date that the mascara was made. It may have already been 6 months old at time of purchase! So, I wouldn't advise you to keep mascaras for too long, even if their unopened. Hope this helps! :-)

the black is very black and creates really thick hard to get off lashes. I guess it depends on your style. You can put it on thinner for less of an effect. I havn't tried brown only black but I have fair skin, blond lashes and blond hair and always wear black mascara. But I always wear bronze eyeliner and neutral eyeshadow and cheeks and lips to balance it out.

I really think it's worth it for u try it and if u dont like it, sephora always returns it. No way to lose out here.

diorshow Iconic has helped my curl. I have thick- haired straight lashes. I have had problems with holding curl. Iconic holds my lashes curl for quite a long time. When I was testing curl out for about a week into it, I applied the mascara at around 10AM went out to do shopping, came back at 6 and they were still curled and I had no fall out. I went out for dinner, came back at 8:30-9PM and they were still curled and I had one small speck of fall out. I have oily skin and hooded lids if that matters.

It is if you have a lash primer you can create a natural faslse lash look. this works very well with many eyelash primers becaue the formula is not super thick nor is it too watery. Alone and using 2-3 coats, it will just look like what the original diorshow gives in 1-2 coats. Diorshow mascara is more meant for the false lash appeal. Try the Diorshow Blackout instead rather than the original. Blackout has a more intense pigmentation so it looks literally like bold false lashes.
