Some products are so good in certain ways that their strengths totally outweigh their weaknesses. For me, Diorshow Iconic Mascara ($27) is one of those products.
The newest member of Dior’s lash arsenal doesn’t produce the thickest lashes I’ve ever seen. It doesn’t thicken as well as, say, Chanel Exceptionnel does, but it lengthens, curls and defines lashes so amazingly well that I don’t mind at all.
It’s even easy to apply, never clumping or flaking. Together, its strengths make Iconic one of the overall best mascaras I’ve tried in years.
With its long, skinny teeth, the plastic comb brush morphs my lashes into a natural-looking feathered fringe. The brush grabs even the smallest and stubbiest individual lashes, thoroughly coating and defining each one with mascara. The result is long, dark lashes of equal length.
This is what two coats of Iconic looks like. I think it’s a natural lash look (yet still a little sexy) with added oomph. This stuff is totally like the hot girl-next-door of mascaras.
The formula holds the curl from my Shu Uemura curler all day long and doesn’t smudge, not even after hours of wear.

I like Iconic as a daytime mascara and have been wearing it to work and on the weekends. If you’re single and dating, I can see you wearing it on lunch dates, or perhaps to the Japanese Tea Garden for afternoon tea. Your date wouldn’t be able to take his eyes off your sexy, bedroom lashes!
At $27, Diorshow Iconic isn’t drugstore cheap, but the fact that I can wear it every day makes it feel like a pretty good value.
If you’re looking for a high-end mascara with solid overall performance, then Diorshow Iconic might be just the thing.
