Dior DiorShow Extase Mascara Review


 I was so excited when I heard that Dior had yet a new mascara out. Mascara is my thing! I rarely leave home without it. I especially rarely leave home without using my DiorShow Iconic mascara! It makes me look like I'm wearing falsies, but I digress. Here's the description of DiorShow Extase from the Sephora website:

DiorShow Extase provides built-in treatment benefits and high-impact lashes in a single stroke! The spherical-shaped Black Pearl Pigments create a 3D volume effect and the exclusive Metamorphosis Powders expand in size by up to 50% after application. Also, SR38 Patented Ceramid brings additional care, reconstructing damaged lashes and promoting stronger and fuller lashes.What else you need to know:The Extase mascara features a "Tiered Brush" that is inspired by the "tiered" couture dresses created by the House of Dior. The brush is designed for performance and contains an Exclusive Duo of Fibers: The Black Elastomer Fibers brush out and define the lashes for panoramic fringe and the Gold Nylon Fibers hold and deposit formula, generously coating each lash for outstanding volume.

It is really hard for me to say whether or not this mascara does what it claims, but I'll go with yes. Yes my lashes were thicker and fuller. They were also a lot clumpier! My lashes have never clumped so much in my life. I tried several applications of the mascara, using it in various ways, but the end result was continuously the same - clumps. Also, although the brush looks exciting, it actually didn't separate and help define my lashes the way I thought it would.

If you're interested in purchasing DiorShow Extase, you can pick it up from sephora.com for $28
