A Mascara Love Story!
Diorshow was my first mascara, and like all first loves; I never imagined how there could be another mascara.
However, times changed and once I had a full time job and a house to look after, there were bigger priorities than Diorshow. I could only afford to buy it about once a year so a dalliance with cheaper (MAC, L’Oreal) mascaras began.
Somehow down this road new and flashy mascaras also caught my eye like YSL Faux Cils, Chanel Inimatable & Benefit Bad Gal and I wondered if I would ever be faithful to Diorshow again.
Nothing like adding a bit of drama to proceedings! ;-)
5 or so years on I thought I’d go ‘back to perfection’ as I thought in my head, I’d held Diorshow up on a pedestal as some kind of pinnicle of mascaras for a looong time.
Now, this is where the romance stops- either my tastes and/or standards have changed, or Diorshow has changed.
First off 090 is supposed to be BLACK. Does this look black to you?
Also I have massive problems with application, I know I used to layer mascara on in one continuous coat when I was 18, I certainly don’t do this now usually but it’s the only way with Diorshow.
It dries instantaneously and if you go back for a second coat you will end up with wobbly-bobbly lashes. One coat doesn’t feel like enough, it’s a no win situation.
I despair. I do still love the feathery look but it’s just not wowing me.
Diorshow I really wanted to love you but it just ain’t working. Also I already have a roving eye settled onto YSL Volume Shocking...
Have you ever gone back to a favourite product and thought maybe it's not all that after all??
