I have this mascara in a mini-size tube, but I managed to thoroughly test it and form my opinion about it. As a rule, I use up such mini mascaras in 2-3 weeks. After that their performance get worse. I’ve been using this mascara for 3 weeks now and it doesn’t work well already.
WHAT IT IS:
Diorshow Iconic Overcurl pushes the limits of curl to the extreme.
Its incurved brush delivers exceptional curling power for instant lash-styling along the entire fringe.
Enriched with K Polymers that boast tensor, sheathing and fixative properties, its volume-boosting formula instantly plumps and shapes lashes for bowl-you-over curl. Its restructuring lash-care ingredients work deeply to deliver even more spectacular curl.
Easy to remove with warm water or makeup remover.
PRICE: about $30
THE DESIGN AND BRUSH.
The mini-size option is not different to the full-size. The product comes in a metallic glossy tube that is nice to hold in my hands. The brush is big and curved and has silicone bristles.
PROPERTIES: The mascara is medium-thick and doesn’t have any fragrance like the nice scent of Lancome mascara.
√ The product colors my upper lashes really well. Moreover, it curls them up a little bit, but there is no amazing curve.
√ It boosts volume very well due to a pitch black color and a thick texture.
√ The intense payoff on the first try is about the Dior Overcurl Mascara.
√ The mascara doesn’t fall out even when brushing the eyelashes. In addition, it doesn’t fall out or smudge even by a strong wind.
The intense color doesn’t fade till the evening.
√ It removes with ease with an ordinary makeup remover. I wash it off with an almond oil and have no problems with it. I use a single cotton pad for this purpose.
χ I don’t really like that this mascara sticks my lashes together when applying the second coat. I’ve tried doing it different ways. I applied the second coat right after the first one and it clumped my lashes together. I applied it after the first one was already dry and the result was still the same. Also, it was hard to comb them through as the mascara fixed them very well. The good news is that it colors them well on the first go, so a single coat will sometimes be enough.
χ It’s very uncomfortable to apply this mascara to my lower eyelashes. The brush is not only curved but very big, so it is a little bit of a hassle to work with so you don't smudge under your eyes.
I like this mascara and give it 4 with a minus, but I won’t purchase the full-size tube, as I don’t want to buy one more mascara along with this one for my lower eyelashes. Its performance is limited if I may say so, while I need a more multi-purpose and versatile mascara. I give it 4 stars, because I evaluate the product itself without looking at the brand, be it high- or low-end. I don’t expect any miracles from high-end products, as they are very ordinary but in beautiful packages.
The voluminous and curved lashes are guaranteed, however, so I would recommend you try it.
