A couple Saturdays ago, I was lounging in the park with a friend when I noticed her eyelashes looked amazing and immediately asked what kind of mascara she was using that day. As someone who once got actual eyelash extensions—loved them, would likely not do it again—I appreciate a mascara that can solicit a reaction of “are those or aren’t those fake?”
My friend’s answer was Dior Addict It-Lash and, not surprisingly, I headed to Sephora on my way home to pick up this magical mascara. Not only did it live up to expectations, but I didn’t take it off that evening when I went to bed, and somehow it was still smudge free when I woke up. Now that’s the sign of a great find.
I tried out a few other products just for good measure, and loved the Plumping Primer. Maybe it’s because I don’t mind an extra step, but it made my lashes feel longer. While these mascaras are definitely on the more expensive side, they’re a worthwhile small luxury when my lashes look just as good 18 hours later as when I left the house.
You can shop these Dior mascaras along with some of my other mascara favorites using the links below, and let me know if you have a go to mascara that I should try out. I’m always on the lookout for new waterproof dark brown formulas that don’t smudge!
