Dior Show - $25 at Sephora

I know I's been listed in magazines as one of the best ... but it's not!!  Save your money!!!

I bought this mascara a few months ago at Sephora when I had a 15% off coupon ... I thought ... why not give it a whirl.  Let me just say that I should have picked something better to use my coupon on.  This mascara is HORRIBLE.

The wand is too big so it touches like every part of your eye lid and FORGET trying to put it on the bottom lashes!  It comes out too thick on the brush so it goes on like an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico!  Once you get it on and fix all the mess you get to work and realize that it has smeared across your eyelid AND burns your eye like someone is poking you in the eye with a red hot poker!

The worst part (as if it could get worse) it doesn't even do anything extraordinary to your lashes ... it doesn't make them look fuller or look longer they just look like you have mascara on.

So since I paid a little over $20 for this mascara ... I've been wearing it and suffering everyday for it.  So over the weekend, I said to myself ... enough is enough!  I am going back to the mascara that I love and that works GREAT.

Maybelline Great Lash!!

I got it for a little over $4 at Target!  This mascara is great!  It comes in a few different varieties which are all great except for the new Lots of Lash (I did a post on this click HERE).  

So sometimes the best things in life are the cheaper ones!!


  1. I do like Maybeline's Great Lash, but I also really love Dior show. It never gave me any problem. xoxo

  2. I love your descriptions... "so it goes on like an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico!" And I also share your love of drugstore products!

  3. hello, Friday ~ I wonder why it works so well for you...I've been trying to wear it for weeks and it SUCKS!

    aki ~ thanks ;) I just think that sometimes you're just paying for the packaging and name with higher end can find things that work just as well in the drugstore...not all but some!

    Thank you both for your comments!

  4. It wowed me at first but later it gave me meh. Personally I think it's up to the individual and their lashes. It works wonder for some but not for others. The maybelline one is a classic. I love it and always keep one around. It's no wonder it's still around.


Thank you so much for commenting! I really appreciate it!
