Dior just released a new mascara, Dior Addict It-Lash, and since Diorshow is one of my top 3 favorite mascaras (this one and this one are my other two faves) I had to try it out. For reference, I am a larger than life mascara gal – the bigger and more volume the better. Now initially when I first tried the It-Lash, I was not a fan. Now that I have been wearing it over the past few weeks, my affinity for it has increased a smidge. I decided to compare the It-Lash with Diorshow and Diorshow Iconic Overcurl to see if any would come forward as the winner. But before I give my opinions on each, let’s look at the brushes (from left to right: It-Lash, Diorshow, Iconic Overcurl):
1. Dior Addict It-Lash – The brush is small and spiky so I knew it would be good at grabbing each and every lash – which was correct. It separated my lashes quite well and gave them a delicate fanned-out look. I did try applying a few coats to see if I could build it up in volume, but sadly I couldn’t get it to the kind of drama I prefer. It did smudge slightly but most mascaras do on me – so I didn’t find it a deal breaker. This mascara is receiving RAVE reviews and I hate to go against the grain, but I don’t love it. Like it? Yes. Love it? No. Repurchase? Probably not.
2. Diorshow – From the moment I used this years ago, until the present day it is an amazing mascara. It gives length, volume, drama, intensity – it’s amazing. It can get clumpy towards the end of the tube, but would you think I’m weird if I said I don’t mind clumpy lashes sometimes? Not gross clumpy lashes, but I don’t need every single lash to be separated. I like a thick lash and occasionally that can mean clumpy. Feel free to judge, I’m fine with it.
3. Diorshow Iconic Overcurl – I had very high hopes for this one because it was a direct descendant of Diorshow (or at least the name said it was). Again, like the It-Lash, it feel short for me. What did not fall short was the length of my lashes – they were extra long after a few swipes. However, because I do wear a substantial amount of eye makeup every day, a thick and voluminous mascara always complements it better than a more delicate one. I have kept this one for those days that I am not wearing any makeup or very light makeup. But it will not be a repurchase for me.
Here is a look at all the mascaras swatched on my lashes. The winner undoubtedly in my opinion is still the Diorshow, but the other two were nice as a base coat for me.
