Along with the Spring 2012 collection, Dior just released their latest mascara – DIORSHOW NEW LOOK in Australia.The original Dior DiorShow mascara was a phenomenal success, and I was blown away by how it performs against my poor Asian lashes so I have pretty much tried every single mascara Dior has released ever since (reviewed here). I bought this new mascara a while ago, and it wasn’t until yesterday that I tried it out. Bad timing – I shall never wear a new mascara on Valentines Day! I ended up with raccoon eyes every few hours on such a special occasion, needless to say I would never wear it again.
Before I am going to pass it on to my mum who recycles my “unwanted makeup” I want to quickly share my thoughts with you. Dior claims that the DIORSHOW NEW LOOK is an revolutionary mascara, with the combination of an exclusive nano-brush and a high precision serum treatment formula, it offers an unrivaled and spectacular volume multiplying effect. The serum treatment formula will also strengthen and repair your lashes day by day.
My thoughts on:
Brush: Has a unique design and is able to catch every single lash with precision definition.
Texture: It feels buttery soft and is neither too dry nor too wet, and it applies smoothly and feels feathery soft and lightweight on the lashes.
Effect: My lashes appear much thickened and slightly longer upon application, unfortunately it doesn’t hold the curl and weighs my lashes down immediately.
Lasting Power: very disappointed…
Bottom Line: Mascara is very subjective, and my review is based on my naturally straight Asian lashes with medium length and volume. My preference for a mascara is to give nice definition to my lashes and is able to hold the curl that can last the whole day without smudging. As much as I was impressed with the unique design of the brush and the texture, DIORSHOW NEW LOOK fails in holding the curl and smudges terribly throughout the day. Therefore it is not a good mascara for me, but it might work for those of you who have better lashes.
