Ok, I'm confused.
After hearing RAVES about DiorShow mascara from such trusted bloggers as Blogdorf Goodman, Faking Good Breeding and DaddyLikey, I eagerly plunked down my twenty-three dollars (plus the exorbitant DC sales tax...no taxation without representation!) and skipped home with my fat little tube.
But when I started using it, I was dismayed with the results.
First, the brush is literally the size of the one I use on my bangs. I was excited about that at first but then...
Second, I got the stuff all over my eyelids. Everywhere. It was like that Amex ad with Ellen DeGeneres. All manner of careful application and pulling and looking sideways and not blinking versus blinking does not alleviate the situation. Maybe I have fat eyelids??? (The horror! The shame! Seriously? How is this possible?)
Third, perhaps it is merely the vicious allergy season here, but I ended up with whore eyes (where the mascara leaves rings under your eyes, aka walk of shame eyes) like you would not believe. I think half of the Senate thinks I went on a bender over Memorial Day recess.
Fourth, even after I cleaned up the collateral damage, but before the smudging, I wasn't that impressed with my lashes.
So tell me, am I missing something? I have heard such wonderful things and I want to love this.
Help me! I have many functions coming up for which lush black lashes would be so perfect... I feel so lost, so helpless...
Ok, I'm just kidding, I just don't want to leave work and walk home in the pouring rain.
