DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum – REVIEW

Let’s start by saying that I have ridiculously short stimpy lashes, its one of the things I absolutely despise, so I am always looking out for a great mascara base.

Dior has a great reputation for mascaras so when this Sephora exclusive came out I just had to try it! Also I loved the packaging…so pretty and white! (I am a sucker I know)

I don't like this (*SIGH*)…also $28 dollars!? (geez!) thankfully Sephora has a wonderful return policy.
I FAR prefer my Shiseido mascara base. $23 dollars (staple, not HG but staple)

The why:
I applied this and not only did a small amount of product come out per application, but it seemed to bring down the curl of my lashes. So I have to put the wand back in the tube a few times per eye to get enough of a base on (weighs down my lashes)

I tried this with a water proof mascara (Maybelline Full and Soft) and two normal High End mascaras ( Lancome Hypnose Drama and Benefit Bad Gal) admitting while using this primer I came to the simultaneous conclusion that I hated the way Drama and Bag gal looked also! Not sure if it was solely the mascara or the base I used. No volume AT ALL, & minimal length increase

Because it is Dior, I decided to give it one last test with my current favorite Lancome Hynose. A mascara I have had great results with and UGH never did I see my beloved mascara look so crappy on my eyes. That was the it.

Dior really let me down with this one…next on my list to try is the Urban Decay lash primer.


  1. Sorry to hear that it's such a disappointment...

  2. Thank you sweety for such a nice comment you left me! It means a world to me!


  3. Bah! Sorry this didn't work for you. I have yet to find a mascara base that works for me, they always weigh down my lashes or loose curl. Have you tried the Majolica Majorca primer? I have read good reviews on it but have yet to try it.

  4. I've never found a good lash primer...
