MC's Quest forTHE Perfect Mascara: Dior Diorshow Black Out Mascara

So out with the Cargo Texas Lash that was a waste of money and 3 months of use, in comes Dior Diorshow Black Out Mascara.

I'm rather fond of the original Dior Show mascara. It's a nice, rich black that does a wonderful job lengthening, giving lots of volume that I crave, and wears incredibly well. There is a slight difference between Black Out and regular Dior show: There is a lot of kohl added into Black Out that makes lashes even darker and richer, and more extreme then the original.

So can I tell the difference between "rich black" and "extreme black"?

To be perfectly honest, the Black Out mascara does seem slightly darker, but the formula is basically the same as the original Diorshow. Admittedly, as much as I like Diorshow, I do find Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Black Mascara to be a better alternative when I don't want to shell out $24 for a mascara. Unfortunatly, it looks like Bourjois is going the way of the Dodo at Sephora and that makes me sad. :(

The Verdict on DiorShow Black Out: It's pretty damn good. A nice rich black mascara that hardly clumps, gives you sexy thick lashes, and wears amazingly well through the day. Just get the waterproof version if you decide to wear it in the water. I made the mistake of wearing this on a day I was at the beach and it did come off in the water. ^_^;;

Got a mascara recommendation I should try next? Let me know what I should try!!! XD

I LUV Blackout! I have short, thick, curly lashes that I'm always trying to optically lengthen and this does the trick!
