Tammy Faye got a little carried away with her lash obsession, but she was definitely on the right track. Voluminous lashes are sexy and sultry, and seem to summon the mysterious vamp within us. So, you can imagine my delight when finding my perfect mascara after sixteen years of concentrated, serious makeup experimentation. My perfect mascara: DiorShow Iconic.
It arrived as a full-sized sample tucked in the binding of a French fashion magazine. I was excited enough to receive a free makeup goodie when, in America, we get a mere spritz of perfume on a piece of paper… but then, the magic happened. I swept the Iconic across my lashes, and my eyes took on a whole new, sophisticated look. Not only were my lashes instantly extended to what seemed like ten times their actual length, but they were really soft. Then came the test of wear… would it last? Yes, of course it lasts - it's the perfect mascara, it lasted all day and night. And I am now, like makeup artists across the globe, hooked on this exceptional beauty enhancer. Effortless lash-lengthening perfection at a screaming good price. Christian Dior, DiorShow Mascara: $26.95
