DiorShow Black Out Mascara

1 May

I don’t know how you TECHNICALLY spell blowing raspberries with your tongue, but here’s my best shot: BBBBLLLLLPPPPTH. It doesn’t matter how bloody good a mascara looks when you put it on your lashes if it’s all over the skin under your eyes within a few hours. I put DiorShow Black Out mascara on at about 5pm last night, and when I got into the car before nine, I noticed in the rearview mirror that I had the dreaded black raccoon smudges under my eyes. I had not been crying. I had not been drinking. I had not been sweating. I had not been in the rain. I went to meet a client, then went and met girlfriends for dinner. Two sit-down, relaxed events.

I bought this mascara in the first place because the Sephora sales droid assured me Dior mascaras do not smudge. LIES. They know nothing.

DiorShow Black Out, meet my garbage can. Waste of money.

On a separate note, this is like the tenth time WordPress has suggested “flagellation” as a possible tag for one of my cosmetic review posts. WHY???

    Remind me what mascaras you do recommend? I know you told me a couple at one time, but this time I’ll write them down!

      Hey KD!
      I like Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes; CoverGirl Lash Blast; and DiorShow REGULAR Mascara (not any of the new fancy formulations).

    I SWEAR by Mally’s Volumizing Mascara. I used to be a DiorShow junkie, but I’ve switched. Her waterproof liner is really great too, and I’ve switched from Urban Decay 24/7. All the products I’ve tried from her line I really like, except the concealer. It’s too thick, but my mom loves it.
