I absolutely love the look of the mascara once its on and dried. It leaves my lashes looking really long and curly. However when you first put it on it takes forever to dry and every time you move you leave black lines eveeywhere. Then when its time to come off its really hard to come off and i didnt even have the waterproof one. Ive lost a few eyelashes trying to scrape it off there for im not wearing it through the day.

I bought this mascara together with Dior lipstick. And I can say only the best thing about the lipstick but unfortunately not about mascara. Brush is quite big which may make difficulties applying to lower lashes. Color is rich and really very very black and overall effect after application is impressive. Its biggest minus though is this mascara leaves smudgy marks. I have waterproof one and it is no help what so ever.. I think problem is in fact this mascara dries very slowly after you have...

I am really really disappointed with this mascara. I bought the non-waterproof one.I bought it because it was recommended by Jemma Kidd in her latest book Jemma Kidd Make-Up Masterclass so i assumed that the £21 i was spending would be well worth it and that i would be wowed by this product.
I am shocked at how inferior this mascara really is! The only plus is that it applies nicely but it goes on too fine so that it doesn't give your lashes any thickness, I have to put on three layers... (read more)

This mascara gives great length and excellent volume to lashes and is very easy to apply. Although Dior Diorshow Black Out is a very good mascara, I found that the brush, not the mascara became very clumpy and the brush itself was in a very bad condition after about 3 months of use so even though the mascara had not run out yet, the mascara brush was unusable.

The Dior Diorshow Black Out is the best chunky, thickening and lengthening mascara I have tried. Really volumising. Creates thick black long lashes and I don't even need to use eyelash curlers to make them curl. (read more)

Personally, I love Dior Diorshow Black Out. I don't wear it for day, for the daytime I wear either Diorshow Iconic or Benefit's Bad Gal.
However, for a night out it's perfect.
I went to the Dior counter and asked them if they knew how to counteract the smudging and clumping, and they said to wear a less thick mascara during the day, and then at night when you go out, layer some Blackout over the top. This works really well, but I find that the Blackout is a bit too much for a daytime look. (read more)

I don't know why Dior Diorshow Black Out gets bad reviews. This mascara does what other mascaras only aspire to. It's one of the only mascaras I've ever used that adequately thickens and lengthens (and man, have I gone through a lot of different kinds of mascara), and it can actually hold a curl on top of all that. I've never had trouble getting it off with a bit of water and any kind of makeup-removing face wash, or just straight makeup remover.
I guess maybe you shouldn't use it if you have... (read more)

I'm annoyed with myself for falling for the beauty counter assistant's recommendations for this product! I usually use Benefit Bad Gal Lash and love it apart from the smudging, so was looking for something with equal va va voom but staying power too. the assistant told me the waterproof version never smudges. well it is waterproof but try as i might, it DOES NOT come off at all with my normal make-up remover but bizarrely it still smudges beneath my eyes a little. worst of both worlds!
also,... (read more)

I have no idea why there are so many bad reviews about Dior Diorshow Black Out, what can only be considered as the God of all mascaras. The Diorshow Blackout does exactly as promised. I naturally have fairly long lashes but the Diorshow Blackout takes them to a new dimension, with unparalled length and thickness. Also I love the fact that it gives you a false lash effect but doesn't make you look like a drag queen (false lashes especially tend to do that). I always receive compliments about... (read more)

I was a devout Dior Show user. I do find this is a darker black, but it's also harder to remove and it smudges (it leaves black lines on the top of my eyelid, which the Dior Show didn't). (read more)

I went to a Christian Dior counter and the assistant ( I wont call her a beautician) tried Dior blackout on me. After she had finished, my lashes didn't look particularly thick, long or anything how the mascara is portrayed to make your eyelashes look. The assistant said "this mascara makes your eyelashes black" failing to realise I already have black eyelashes.
I am sure I have used '£1 mascaras that have done a better job. (read more)

Diorshow Black Out is the most expensive mascara I have ever bought. I therefore expected big results and was therefore initially disappointed. It clumped like crazy and I had to wash out an old mascara wand to comb out the excess from each application. However, I got used to it and its appeal is beginning to grow. You do get volume, but not necessarily much extra length, but the big selling point is that it certainly is the blackest mascara I have come across. For that alone, I love it. If... (read more)
