Dior Diorshow Mascara

What it is:An award-winning mascara that has been a backstage cult favorite for 10 years What it does:This mascara delivers perfectly plush, glam lashes with an innovative XXL brush for show-stopping volume. Its creamy, buildable, customizable formula allows you to achieve the same dramatic lash volume that can be seen on the Dior runway for a glamorous, false-lash effect. What else you need to know:This legendary brush was inspired by Dior makeup artists who would use plush toothbrushes to coat models' lashes backstage for volume that a regular mascara wand couldn't create—until now. It's also available in a waterproof formula.

This stays on through a reasonable amount of tears or leakage. It isn't waterproof! But if your eyes water a little (say if you sneeze or weep at the sight of a sappy commercial) your mascara stays intact. If you're planning on having a good sob buy the waterproof version!

I got a sample one once and it was awful- dried out and clumpy. So purchase it new, here on Sephora and it should not be clumpy. Ive tried the other diorshows- iconic, blackout, extase but was not pleased with them. this one the regular diorshow is best.

In my opinion, it's just not. After reading all of the rave reviews from practically everywhere I searched, this product really did leave me thoroughly disappointed. It's a GOOD mascara, but it's not a GREAT mascara. If I do buy Dior mascara it's the DiorShow Iconic due to the (what I see as) improved brush. But, usually I just buy my favorite drug store mascara which provides better results at less than half the price.

You know, I actually find it pretty hard to put a price on "worthiness". It really depends on how much you really need it, looks you want to achieve and whether you really want to shell out that much cash. I have really wimpy, sparse eyelashes, thus it would be worth it for me. If you have full curly eyelashes, your better off going with something cheaper if price is an issue to you.

I love both of these mascaras, but they are both VERY different! The lancome has a very small defined brush which could reach every single lash. The dior has a large applicator which creates a more dramatic look. The Lancome has a pretty dry formula, but the dior has a semi wet formula. If you want a more subtle look go with the lancome.

Definicils is great, but this gives a different look. Definicils is mostly about length and definition. I thought my lashes looked plush almost fluffy (it didn't stay on well on me though) and Dior show is more of a false lashes look. I also feel Dior layers better!

I'm a professional makeup artist of 20+ years. I was a Lancome Definicils devotee personally and professionally, even though it FLAKES, because I couldn't find another that gave me top results personally or professionally...until DiorShow & DiorShow Unlimited, etc.

I will never use Definicils again on me or on a client. Please keep in mind that I base my decisions on education and experience. I take comparative shopping very seriously because this is my ART and also my living on the line!

I actually like to use BOTH mascaras together !! I have Blue eyes and light, thin lashes so volumizing is a must. I like to combine formulas by applying one type and color with a certain brush for a 1st coat and different mascar,a color and brush combo for the 2nd. So my trick is I apply one coat of Lancome Definilcis in brown with a thin pointy bristle brush for Lengthening. Then for my second coat I ues DiorShow mascara because it will enhance the thickening effect. The thick brush is great for plump lashes.

Right now I am using DiorShow in Plum because I think it makes my color pop. I use it daily and can pull it off everyday for work. I have tried Black but it was too dramatic for a daytime look, especially since I have light skin tone.

I like both for different reasons. I use the Defincils for more of a "day" or "work" look since it darkens lashes nicely and provides good separation without making me feel overly made-up. It doesn't do anything for volume, though. DiorShow is amazing for volume, length and curling. It does dry out a little faster and begins to clump, but I've found that rinsing the brush with water buys you a little more time.

Diorshow really pumps up the volume and darkness of your lashes (I prefer Diorshow Blackout for even more darkness). Definicils really lengthens the lashes. I do not get much volume but it does make my lashes longer than anything else I have tried. I like to use both together to get the volume and length I desire. Definicils is wonderful for lower lashes.

I find the Blackout formula to be a little bit more wet and you really can't coat as much since it does seem to dry a little fast then most mascaras at first. And it does define a lot more than just the regular Diorshow. I found the secret to the mascara was to wait and give it a week to let it thicken up and becomes easier to apply.

They have different textures. I find the Blackout is more plastic like, while Diorshow is more of a traditional textured mascara. I prefer Diorshow because the plastic like texture of Blackout makes it difficult to separate the lashes. The best is to put on Diorshow first and then a layer of Blackout. The best of both worlds!

I have the plum mascara, and it looks so natural that I use it with everything but black liner or shadow.

Diorshow comes in plum color.
GORGEOUS!
ANy taupes or pinks or brown shadows will go with it.

I have learned that with colored mascaras, other than black and brown, its best to use the colored mascara over a basic one like black or brown or you will look rather clownish. As far as colors to go with it, brown and bronze look great with plum shades, just be careful not to overdue any of the colors.

Hi there, I think the Plum is more versatile that you think! It looks great with navy, black or brown liner, and in terms of shadows, for drama you could stick with a plummy story, or do a sparkly beige (try diorwshow eyeshow undrssed beige, it just won the Allure award!)

Plum mascaras go great with light green or seafoam eyeshadows. Think Brill by MAC or the Egypt palette by Cargo.

I have the plum and I use it daily. I usually use a dark plummy shade for creases and then a shimmery lilac shade all over and clinique black eyeliner (liquid) after curling lashes. People don't notice it is purple, unless they look closely and then they think that is cool!

Does this work better than fiberwig?
I've used fiberwig and love it so much, but based on the reviews and raves this mascara has been getting, I'm just a bit curious about it. I'd like to switch if it works way better in lengthening and volumizing my short thin lashes.

For me, Fiberwig is more of a day mascara - it defines and lengthens, mainly, while DiorShow can be more of a day or night, depending on how many coats you put on - it has the thickening/dramatic power as well. So it depends on what you're looking for. It's still a tossup between Fiberwig and DiorShow for my favorite day mascara...

In my opinion, I like this better than Fiberwig because it lights up my eyes, thickens my lashes, and gives my lashes a dramatic "catwalk-like" effect. I feel like a runway model everytime I put this mascara on. The Fiberwig on the otherhand didn't do the same, it only lengthens and barely thickened my lashes. I think they are both great mascaras but I like the Diorshow one better. In fact, it's my favorite mascara.

I highly recommend giving dior show a try (you will not be disappointed). Fiberwig is awesome but dior show gives the same look but leaves the lashes with a softer, more conditioned feel. Dior show also layers better! :)

It really depends on what your looking for. Although both Diorshow and Fiberwig are pretty durable, I find Fiberwig to be the safer bet if it's raining. Diorshow is better if your wearing bright colored eyeshadows if you really want your eyes to pop. This curls better and thickens better, but I like Fiberwig better for lengthening.

This mascara definitely gives you the results you are looking for better than fiberwig. I just finished my fiberwig mascara and it just adds length, but diorshow does it all without clumping and looking too overdone.

I use Fiberwig too. My lashes look longer and thicker with Diorshow than with Fiberwig, but mine are really long to begin with. I know with Fiberwig you can build up your lashes. I just find that Fiberwig has a more natural look, whilst Dior is much more dramatic.

Has anyone experienced an allergic reaction?
I used Dior Show for over a year before taking a small break from it. I went back to it recently only to have a horrible allergic reaction--my eyes were swollen shut, watery and the sensitive skin on my eyes was flaky and felt like sandpaper. The weird thing is, I don't have this reaction to Blackout.
Has anyone had similar experiences? This is really weird. I'm wondering if they changed up their formula?

I tried it on in the store once or twice. I usually am pretty sensitive to anything on my eyes and 1-time-try is enough. I tried this one and I didn't feel any irritability or runny eyes, no burning, no itching, so I think it's good, so I bought it! :)

Wow that's too bad! I have sensitive skin around my eyes and I've been using this for years without a problem. I don't think that Dior has changed their formula. The thing is, that you can develope allergies throughout your life, even to things that you weren't allergic to before! You might try Lancome, all of their Mascara has that wow factor too. Also Mac has some really awesome mascaras. Of course, Dior is the best, but those 2 are a close second!

Sorry to hear about your eyes!
I'm a biologist, so I think about bacteria quite often. (Nerdy, I know.) The only thing I can think of that could cause that (besides formulation changes/allergies) could be contamination? When you started using it again, was it a new one or the old one you'd used before you took a break? Sometimes bacteria can grow in products over time, and if that happened over the break-you could have had the reaction because of that.
I would definitely contact Dior and see if they've made a change in formula. We only get one set of eyes, gotta pamper those babies!
Good luck!

I just recently started using dior show again after more than a year w/ out it. I previously had eye irratation issues and do have very sensitive skin but I have yet to have an issue w/ Diorshow now.

maybe a bad batch or something unrelated to mascara.

good luck - i understand the pain of eye irratation.

I don't believe anything is "fishy" about DiorShow mascara; it is just as good as many other Dior products, namely the eye shadows and blushes. I think the makeup artists like this because the large brush deposits color easily and well, and the color is very saturated. It is better than many other mascaras out there, even considering the higher price tag.

I can honestly say this is the best mascara I've tried so far. It NEVER clumps, it really does have a curling effect, and the result is very dramatic (I use the black shade).

I don't know why it's cheaper than other Dior products, maybe because it's cheaper to make or because they make a lot of it. As far as the movie/book mentions, yes it's a good product, but they probably have a great advertising team as well!

I'm not sure how Dior comes up with pricing, it seems on par with other mascaras in other lines pricewise, however I've found this mascara builds volume, enhances definition and length much better than any other mascara I've tried. Recent products I've tested include: Lash Injection (clumpy), Bare escentuals Buxom Lash (nice definition, not much volume), DiorShow Blackout (great, very black, more defining than volumizing), Benefit BadGal Lash (dry formula, did not build volume), Lancome Definicils (goopy, didn't like brush). I know there are more!
Try it! If you don't like it, return it! My guess is you'll keep it and buy it in bulk so you never run out.

Don't believe the hype. I've tried it twice (two tubes, different colors) and found it to be dry and the brush to be so big as to be awkward. In my opinion, good old Cover Girl does a much better job for a fraction of the price.

This mascara gives you long length and a very black color. It lasts all day long. If you really want to see the difference try one eye with your regular mascara and one eye with Dior Show.

I personally prefer Iconic. I have them both. I purchased DiorShow first but due to my dislike for the brush, I ended up purchasing Iconic. As far as my lashes are concerned, it's the same great DiorShow look, minus the (what I find to be) hassle of the extra-plump brush.
