This is the brush:
It dries quickly, and not too much product is dispensed onto the brush. It definitely gives dramatic lashes! Here is my before and after:
Wow, what a difference!!
I used to use this mascara a lot, and in fact this is a brand new tube. It is a very good mascara. No flaking or smudging, and the application is pretty even with one use. But honestly, I do not like it anymore. I just don't like the crunchy lashes that a most mascaras give me. I know, it may look great, but the feeling isn't worth it. Even after using a lash comb I still find myself thinking of rubbing at the lashes to get the excess product off, and that is irritating. There are many other mascaras I like to use that are more natural looking, although admittedly much less dramatic. I do like the Diorshow Iconic formula much better for daily use. I feel like my lashes have an ok length and some curl, so if I had naturally black lashes, I would just need a very simple coat of mascara. Ah, my lash lot in life!!
If your lashes are already black, you probably would not need this heavy of a mascara. It is great for anyone with light, thin, short, or sparse lashes though, which probably is the majority of us!!
Overall, this is a highly effective mascara and I would definitely recommend it.
