Diorshow/ Diorshow Blackout Mascara

A good mascara has taken me *years* to find. However now I've found one that I'm going to stick with. 

After hearing good things, I first bought the Diorshow mascara because I didn't want to be overpowering for an 'everyday' look. It crumbled throughout the day and as a result I had a bit of fall out around my eyes, (So not sexy), but instead of just writing the mascara off, I visited the Dior counter but was refused a replacement. I wrote to Dior because I was a bit miffed to find an expensive mascara so rubbish. I sent mine back free-post, and they sent me a replacement which was fine, so maybe I had one from a bad batch! If yours does the same thing, get in touch with Dior, their direct customer service is pretty fantastic.

Anyway, the one thing that stands out as you open the mascara is the HUGE brush. Its almost impossible NOT to get mascara on your eyelids. You could use a business card pressed against your eyelid to protect from this, like so //

Right eye: Diorshow
This is a gorgeous mascara, it definitely does a good job at thickening, but after a while I started to get a bit bored and wanted something with more 'oomph' for a more night-time look.

Left eye: Diorshow Blackout

Can you really tell the difference? I know I can't here, except maybe the eyelashes look longer. Well, this is after a single stroke. It takes a few to get a similar effect with Diorshow.
Diorshow Blackout is a heavy pigmented black which is a perfect finish to a smoky look, and it does *everything* a good mascara should do, in my opinion. Its thickening and lengthening and holds a curl! 

 Maybe this will give you a better idea. The left eyelashes look thicker, no?
