Dior Iconic Overcurl Mascara…………..Lashes Can Never Be Overdone.
How are you all? Yes i’m back with a new mascara to review. As Dior are re-promoting their Iconic Overcurl Mascara in the Mystic Metallics Fall 2013 Collection; see here, then there is no better time to post this review on it. 😉
I have tried a number of mascaras by Dior and haven’t found a bad one yet. They make one for every type of lash. So if you have sparse short lashes, Extase is your go to mascara. Longer thick lashes will benefit from New Look and if you want dramatic super black lashes then Diorshow Black Out Mascara. There are others types and different colours by Dior to.
What is also very impressive about Dior mascaras is that they give you a very generous amount for your money. Believe me, their 10ml mascaras last a long time.
I have tried Dior Iconic mascara before and i was quite impressed by it and now its time to road test the Overcurl. I am guessing that the formula is still the same and only the brush shape has changed. Rather than it having a straight brush head, it actually has a half moon shaped brush to help elevate and curl the lashes.
Dior describe it as a professional mascara with spectacular volume and curl.
On opening the mascara for the first time, i was quite impressed with the brush head. It is slightly curved as mentioned; however not too much.
In the past, i have used mascaras with sharply curved brush heads by other companies and this affects the brushes ability to coat the smaller lashes towards the inner and outer corner of the eye. This had put me off buying them as i ended up with long curled lashes in the centre of your eye and virtually nothing going on at the outer and inner corners. Also these brushes struggle with the lower lashes where; preferably, a smaller straight brush head is more ideal for even application.
The mascara fluid itself isn’t too thick in texture so does not coat the lashes heavily. This helps them to remain weightless thus allowing them to curl much more easily and remain in place while not drooping down with the weight of the product.
There was no clumping at all in the first or second coat either.
It was very easy to apply and coated my lower lashes well with no issues. I did note that the inner eye lashes were still a little more difficult to coat, so i used the end of the wand point to apply the mascara to these lashes. There was no such problem with the outer lashes.
Pictured above left is one coat of Dior Iconic Overcurl Mascara and right is two coats.
I really love the lightweight feel of this mascara on my lashes. Once applied, it stayed in place with no drooping of the lashes at all. Eyelashes don’t feel crunchy and hard either, which often happens with many mascaras i wear once i apply two coats. The other quality about this product is that it is very easy to remove with cleanser too and lasted the whole day without flaking away. The one slight negative i had with it was, that even though it did coat my lashes quite easily, it didn’t straighten and tidy them out as easily as some mascaras do. I combed my lashes through before it set up though, so not a big issue. The overall winning quality of this mascara is the almost no feel of it on my lashes and yet i have super curled long ones.
Have you tried this one out yet? Have fun and i will see you all soon. 😉
