Hi dear everyone, today’s post is about Dior Show Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum (10ml). I heard real good things about this product and have decided to pick this up a couple of months ago to test it out.
It is said on the packaging that “For an increasingly spectacular makeup result, DIORSHOW MAXIMIZER can be applied as a priming serum base under mascara and also on its own as an intensive deep conditioner for lashes at night.”
On David Jones’s website, it is written that “This mascara base combines powerful lash treatment benefits with the enhancing effect of mascara. The unique formula works like a replumping coat to thicken, curl and lengthen the lashes.”
I was very intrigued with the claim that it can be used as an conditioner for lashes at night, however, I am too lazy to do this every night, so I cannot really attest. As to the priming serum part, to be honest, I was not that impressed when I first started using. I felt that it weighed my lashes down even after it’s curled with eye lash curler and after I apply a water proof mascara. I believe it was becuase the fomular, which it’s rather wet. With a high price tag at AU$48.00, you probably would have guessed how dissappointed I was.
A few days ago when I shopped my stash, I decided to give the lash serum a go again. What have I done differently is that instead of applying a water-proof mascara striaght on top of my primed eye lashes, I went on doing makeup on other parts of my face and left my lashes dry. (FYI: When it’s firstly applied, the eye lahses are coated in white; after a little while, it dries clear. ) I found that after it was dried, my lashes became somewhat tacky and harder than normal. That day I I loved how my lahses were kept curled without drooping, were being thickend, volumised and lengthened.
I believe that the serum serves as a platform for whatever mascara I use and double up the effect it is supposed to provide fo my lashes.
Now I use the lash serum eveyday, and ensure that I wait until it dries before I apply a mascara on top.
