Stylist Pick: Dior ‘DIORSHOW’ Mascara {plus a secret tip!}

In the past week, I have had several women ask me about my mascara. {I carry my mascara in my wallet – so you can see it anytime I pay for something.} They have all had basically the same query: “Do you like your mascara? I think I need to get a new kind because I don’t really like the one I have.” My answer is always the same: “DIORSHOW IS THE BEST EVER MASCARA EVER.” But why, you may ask?

Since I discovered the magicalness that is mascara in about the seventh grade, I have tried a lot of different kinds – everything from Covergirl ‘LashBlast’ {$7 at any grocery or drug store} to Aveda’s all-natural ‘mosscara’ {$18 at Aveda stores}.While they all had their merits, I keep coming back to Diorshow. I’ve even tried the other kinds of Dior mascaras, but they just don’t stand up to it.

Diorshow has it all: the formula is smooth enough not to clump but thick enough to volumize and plump, and it doesn’t get all flakey. Plus, there is a special secret about this particular mascara that I will share with you: when it starts to dry out, you can run a little water on the brush, swirl it in the tube, and it will be like new! You can do this multiple times with each tube – so it lasts way longer than your average mascara and you really get your money’s worth! At $25 a pop {available at Sephora and Nordstrom}, the Dior mascara is a little pricy, but it is so worth it. I have already converted several of my girlfriends.

DIORSHOW

To renew your Diorshow:

  1. 1. Take your tube of Diorshow to the nearest bathroom.
  2. 2. As you can see, the mascara on the brush is dry.
  3. 3. Run the brush under a little bit of water – just get it wet.
  4. 4. Stick the wet brush back in the tube and swirl it around {always swirl your mascara wand in the tube, the quick up and down method just dries it out faster and you miss all the mascara on the sides of the tube}
  5. 5. Your Diorshow is now just like new! The mascara is re-hydrated and the brush is totally coated.

Look at the difference between the mascara before {#2} and after {#5} the re-hydration!

Diorshow is totally amazing! It definitely earns my highest recommendations.
