Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl

It isn’t often that I devote an entire post to a single product, but when you’re inspired, well…that’s just what this product does for me. Allow me to have a fangirl moment here for a sec–I was able to get my hands on this mascara a full week before it was allowed to be sold in Sephora stores nationwide, because of my awesome sales associate. When she told me that Dior was coming out with an amazing mascara that would obviate the need for eyelash curlers, I slammed my hand on the table and said “SOLD!” without even a glimpse at the product.

Below, my lashes without any mascara:

And with one coat of Diorshow Iconic Overcurl:

Now, I have tiny, barely-there, blonde lashes. Over the past few months I’ve been trying a lash-lengthening product (more on that in a later post), but I still rely on my Shu Uemura eyelash curlers every single day. Now, when I use this mascara, I can go curler-free, which means it’s one less step in my makeup routine. And I love the formula: not too dry, not too wet, not too stiff but not too “natural”.

What I found interesting is the fact that the way you use the brush is, to me, totally counterintuitive. On the packaging it shows you that you are to angle the brush so that the scooped part is facing the ceiling, like a spoon. I always thought that curved brushes meant you aligned the curvy part of the brush with the natural curve of your eye–but this mascara explicitly informs you to hold the concave part vertical, like so:

 You can snatch up this sure-to-be-bestseller mascara at Sephora, House of Fraser, Selfridges, or other fine beauty retailers!

    Definitely interested in trying this product. I can’t imagine not using a curler!

    I love DiorShow and used it for a few years, but eventually I decided to test other brands and started using another cheaper one. I did a test with my sister and she couldn’t tell which one was cheaper. So now I use the $7 one. But I have to say that my lashes are naturally curled so maybe that made it seem similar.

    Wowowee!  Those are quite some eyelashes you got there.  I just bought a new mascara – Clinique High impact.  It has a similar effect for me – good stuff.

    Curved mascaras are supposed to curve up?? I wonder why that is.  Hmmm…maybe that revelation will finally make me like curved mascaras!

    Thank you! I was totally clueless about the correct way to use this brush! Guess I should have read the instructions…
