DiorShow Iconic Mascara Review: Finally, a Clump Free Mascara From Dior!

Diorshow Iconic Mascara Review

In the past, I’ve always been disappointed by DiorShow. I hear tons of raves for these popular mascaras, but when I’ve tried them in the past the result has just been lashes full of clumps. A few months ago, I found the new Diorshow Iconic Mascara on an end cap at my local Sephora. At the time I was having a particularly hard time keeping my lashes curled for more than about 5 minutes, so when the display promised “curling” I grabbed this mascara!

According to the Sephora website, the “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.”

Since buying this mascara, I’ve had some amazing lash growing success (I used Revitalash) and the result is that now rather than having lashes that won’t curl, I have lashes that are very easy to tangle. Seriously, it is actually a problem. They are so long that they can easily get bunched up and I need help to keep them separated.

The brush from DiorShow Iconic does help keep my lashes separated. The bristles are plastic and don’t move around a lot, but because they spiral around the brush they do pick up most of the little lashes that are otherwise easily missed. Application was easy and I didn’t even need to wipe off the mascara wand first. I think it does a great job of giving me added length and volume without looking clumpy. There was no flaking or smudging, though I did lose some curl by the end of the day. It removes very easily with pretty much any makeup remover.

You can buy Diorshow Iconic Mascara at Neiman Marcus or Sephora.

    I'm always searching for a mascara that holds a curl as I have very long but straight lashes. I may give this a try!

    I love Dior iconic! It's one of my go-to mascaras, except that I have to get the water proof one because my eyes are deep set enough that I get smudges fairly easily…I think because my eyelashes touch my cheeks when I blink. My other go-tos are Loreal's eva longoria mascara and clinique's lash power long wearing mascara. And since revitalashing, I've started liking Tarte's lights, camera, lashes, although it seems to dry up quicker than the others.

    I'm always seeking a mascara that supports a snuggle as I have very extensive but right eyelash. I can provide this a try!
