When I was contacted by Dior about the launch of their Diorshow Iconic mascara I was quite surprised and puzzled. I had the impression all along that the Iconic mascara was already part of their regular line of cosmetics. But yes, it was a glitzy launch and the product in question was the Diorshow Iconic mascara.
The Dior Diorshow Iconic mascara comes in a lovely metal tube lightly embossed with the Dior logo all over it. Tacky but for some reason I like it tremendously. I like the shine and the heft that the case has which distinguishes it from all the other plastic mascara tubes I have in my present rotation.
What is so unique about the Diorshow Iconic mascara is the brush. Instead of having the bristles lined up in a row as most mascara brushes have, the bristles are laid out in an oblique pattern i.e. they are slanted. It apparently helps catch your lashes better to coat them with mascara.
I like the bristles. Like the Guerlain le 2 Mascara, the bristles are the short rubbery variety. I’m getting used to these sort of bristles and I find they work better for me than the traditional brush bristle style mascara brushes. This might be because I have short lashes so short bristles work, even if the head is on the larger side. I’m not sure how those with long lashes like such kinds of bristles. If you have long lashes and have some thoughts on this, do let me know.
The Diorshow Iconic mascara promises to lengthen your lashes, separate your lashes and curl your lashes and keep them curled! Lofty promises indeed, but do they deliver?
