If you read my post before, you know that I’ve been on the lookout for mascara. Over the past couple of months, I’ve tried a couple of different brands, but for today’s post, I’m just going to talk about Christian Dior’s Black Out Mascara. It was recommended to me by a reader and so I thought I’d give it a try.




What it says:


Like kohl for the lashes. Diorshow Black Out recreates the captivating effect of kohl in a mascara for extreme volume with a charcoal-like finish.

Spectacular volume. Extremely intense black

(that’s straight from the website)



It’s a little pricier costing $28.50


What I Like:

I like that it really does lengthen and thicken my lashes. They always look very pretty when I’m done applying and I don’t have to do a ton of coats, I usually just do two and I’m good to go


What I don’t like:

It clumps so I for sure have to use a brush to get rid of extra clumps once I let it dry a bit. It also smudges and does NOT want to come off at night, no matter how many times I wash my face and use makeup remover. Lastly, because the brush is think and my lashes are poo, I always end up poking myself in the eye trying to get to my lash line.


Overall thoughts:

I really thought I would like it because it has so many good reviews, but I just don’t like the smudging and clumping. So for $28.50, I’m probably not going to try it again, Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes, simply because it does the job it says it will and people seem to love it so maybe it’s just me.


My fave mascara to date is still Clinique


You have to apply several layers but that seems to be it’s only flaw.


Next on the list, I’m trying Benefit Roller Lash & Curling Mascara
