Hey guys time for some sample testing! I got a sample of this mascara from Dior when purchasing the Dior Airflash foundation (review to come soon). A full size of this mascara costs £22.50.
I have never purchased a high-end mascara so this is my first experience with one. My eyelashes are naturally thick and long so expensive mascara has never been a priority for me. Nonetheless, after my first high-end mascara experience I have to say I am pleasantly surprised.
The wand of this mascara is a thick and fluffy brush. The formula for this mascara is so smooth and the colour is jet black, there is a rose fragrance in the formula too. I love that it isn’t too wet or too dry which means you have quite a bit of time to work with it and it just glides onto the lashes. Usually I find that I get a bit of clumping with brush wands but I didn’t experience any of that after 2 coats of mascara. There was also no transfer to my top lid. This mascara added length, lots of volume, curl and it picked up the little lashes to add lots of drama and separation. It also had amazing longevity to survive a full day at work and a hardcore gym sesh without smudging, flaking and maintaining the curl.
So would I purchase the full version? To be honest whilst this did give me really good results, I know I can live without it and get away with cheaper mascaras. If you’re someone who requires a mascara to add volume, length and curl and have the budget to accommodate an expensive mascara I would really recommend it!
