Starting BigBlondeHair.com has only encouraged my insatiable need to try every makeup product on earth, so I figure I might as well share my finds with all of you, because if something is a dud, you can skip it. In fact, I am even willing to post a picture of myself sans makeup so you can get the full effect and decide for yourself.
This time, I decided to try a few Dior products, as my makeup taste has also gotten increasingly expensive with the blog. The first product is Dior Airflash foundation, recommended to me by Real Housewives of Miami’s Marysol Patton. The second is Diorshow Mascara, recommended to me by many BigBlondeHair readers. The third is Diorshow Eyelash Serum / Primer, recommended to me by the nice lady at the makeup counter, because she had a free sample.
Here’s how it all turned out:
Product Review: Dior Airflash Foundation, DiorShow Mascara & Primer
1) This is me, all naturale
2) This is me post application of Dior Airflash, Diorshow and Dior Primer. Although the woman at the makeup counter recommended that I apply the airbrush foundation by spraying it on a makeup wedge or brush, I decided to apply by spraying it directly on my face from 8″ away. I mean, why would I buy airbrush makeup and apply it with a sponge? I blended a little with my fingers, and then was done. Following I applied a layer of Dior Eyelash Primer to both lashes and then waited for it to dry. Following that I applied multiple coats of Diorshow mascara to my lashes.
The Big Blonde Verdict:
I am all about the Dior Airflash Foundation. It is pricey, but I really love the airbrush look and it is far less chalky and far more light then the Chanel foundation I was using before. I love everything airbrush and this is definitely on par. It’s a very nice makeup and I give it an A.
The Diorshow mascara and primer are both great, but will never substitute for false lashes. I feel that it’s a very good mascara, but my Benefit “They’re Real” may show a bit more the dramatic look I like. However, I also feel that the “They’re Real” may be pulling my lashes out since it’s so hard to remove. That all being said, Diorshow is a very good mascara, and the true test will be if I buy a second tube or am on to the next. B+
