So after all the raving about the DiorShow mascara I picked some up from Sephora (the waterproof). I've been using Shu Uemura Fiber Xtension mascara for about a year now, and I love it - but after hearing how amazing the DiorShow is I figured, why not. So I tried it today, and sadly I'm not impressed . The wand is really large, to the point where you have to be careful not to get it on your eye or lid! It goes on nice, sure, but no better than the Shu Uemura - and the Shu Uemura is easier to apply. Sadly, the Dior doesn't go on as flawless as the Shu Uemura - you have to brush, brush, brush to clear the clumping. So over all, IMO, it's a good mascara, but no better than most mascara's that cost $20.00 or more. EDITTED to throw in some pics. After 3 applications it's looking better, more dramatic. But for $23.00, I don't want to have to apply my mascara 3 times lol.
