Christian Dior have got their dramatic look mascaras down to a T and we just couldn’t resist trying this one out. Enriched with black pearl pigments and Metamorphosis Powder, it is designed to amplify volume lash by lash. With lash care active ingredients lashes are also given a boost becoming supplier and shinier. Christian Dior advertise it as providing “instant oversize volume.”
It is similar to Diorshow Blackout in so far as it provides buildable volume. It also lifts and reshapes the lashes extremely well and is good for people with long, unruly lashes. It is smudge proof and long-wearing. However, it took many coats to get the dramatic look you want from the mascara and volume junkies may be disappointed.
Due to the nature of its couture brush, it was easy to apply and lashes were left well separated and noticeably thickened.
The packaging of this product is beautiful, in glamourous gold, making it the ultimate handbag accessory and a tempting tool to dress your lashes.
The mascara itself comes only in a subtle black shade.
The mascara retails at a rather pricey £21.50 – perhaps the packaging is made of real gold!
This mascara does much more than just volumise. If volume alone is your priority, then this may not be the mascara for you, it is best for those looking for an intense, wide-eyed dramatic look. It is a fab mascara for glamourous ladies of the night.
