Review | Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara in Over Black 090

When this mascara from Dior came out, I was very excited to try it out. I've been very happy with the previous ones that I've tried from the brand, but not only that, this brush really caught my eye. The formula matters, sure, but for me, the brush does most of the job. Depending on the shape, length, elasticity and types of bristles, you can get different results. That's why I like to have different types of disposable wands, to use on other people, instead of a pack of 50 wands that look (and do) the same.
In terms of the formula, I really don't like the ones that get so thick, that you can't even see the shape of the bristles. So, I waited a month or two to purchase it, just to make sure and see how it dried out on the store tester. Needless to say, it was perfect. This formula kind of reminds me of the Benefit BADgal Lash, which I really, really like.
I would say though, this is one of those that are harder to take off at the end of the day. So, if you're not cleansing properly, you should start doing it — as in, the type of cleanser that you remove with a face cloth.
One of the benefits of this product is that it really holds the curl during the day. I find that it looks the same after 10 hours of wear, and it doesn't flake. The brush allows you to reach the base of the lashes really closely, and grabs even those fine and short ones, without messing up the lid — great if you're wearing a light eyeshadow. Use the curved side up to do this.
You'll be surprised by how well it works with just one coat. Seriously, it provides instant volume. *Adding it to the top five list*. Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara is available in three shades: Over Brun 694, Over Bleu 264 and Over Black 090 — which is the one I've got.
