Product Rave: Diorshow Iconic Overcurl

 I have a confession to make. Not a huge offense as far as most people in the world are concerned. But, a great offense in the beauty world. Ok, here it is...

I have never tried Diorshow mascara. 

Ok, well I tried Diorshow Blackout. I honestly wasn't too impressed. It made my lashes quite black, but that's about it. Also, I think it dried out really fast. After that, I resolved to stick to drugstore mascaras, which I felt worked just fine for me. Then there was Benefit's They're Real, which got me back on the high end mascara bandwagon. Recently, I was trying to figure out which cult mascara to try next with my 15% Sephora VIB discount. It was down to Diorshow, Makeup Forever Smokey Lash, and Lancome Hypnose. Then, I saw the new Diorshow mascara, Diorshow Iconic Overcurl. 

I liked the look of the curved brush, as lately I have felt like my lashes need a bit of curl, along with some volume and length. Basically, I just want it all. 

Well, I would say this mascara comes close to meeting all those needs :)

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl -  $ 28

Check  out  those  lashes !  And  my  shiny  face !

This mascara not only gives me dreamy, fluttery lashes, it gives me nice volume and a pretty decent curl! Also, it does lengthen my lashes quite a bit, too. I would be interested to see how this fares when used along with Benefit They're Real, which I felt lengthened quite a lot. Or maybe you could use this along with Blackout, for added drama. 

I quite enjoy this mascara! I think the secret is all in how you hold the wand. I hold it with the wand facing the way it is in the second photo and wiggle it through my lashes. I slowly close my eyes on the brush as I do this. Does that make sense? I feel like it really coats my lashes from base to tip when I do this. I usually do about three coats to get a more dramatic look. 

I haven't noticed any smudging or flaking with this. I think the curl also lasts quite well for me. This was a bit expensive at $28, but for me, it was worth the price and I would repurchase. Although, I do find that mascaras are one of those products that you really don't need to splurge on. I think there are so many drugstore mascaras that are probably just as nice as this. It all depends on how many you want to try before you find the right one. However, if you are looking for a high end mascara, I think this would be a great place to start!

Has anyone else tried this? What are your thoughts? What is your HG mascara? I love to know what works for other people!


  1. Ohhh, I'm totally going to have to try that one next! I'm a mascara junkie. Honestly though, I keep going back to my ALL-TIME favourite drug store brand - L'Oreal Voluminous False Fibre lashes. Nothing else compares for me. Benefit's was okay but not nearly as good, in my mind.

    1. I'll have to try the L'Oreal one! I really liked the original Voluminous. It definitely gave me some sexy lashes!

  2. Looks great. I think I might try it !!
