Also, keep in mind the DiorShow is a powder formulation mascara. It can tend to be a bit drier and more powder/chalky like because that is how you are able to keep applying it to your lashes in so many layers. You can always use any other of your own favorite mascara and just use a lash primer underneath. These protect your lashes, nourish them with vitamins and oils that are great for conditioning the lashes and they give you instant lush and long lashes. I LOVE the Lancome Cils Booster!
