The Votes Are In: Best Mascara Is Dior

While drugstore varieties Maybelline and CoverGirl (along with luxe Lancôme) were neck-in-neck for second place in the Best Mascara of 2008 showdown, it seems that the majority of you adore Dior when it comes to mascara. Our very own DearSugar agrees. "I can't tell you how much I love my Dior!" she said with gusto.

As for me, my favorite mascara of the year is Givenchy's truly unique Phenomen'Eyes Mascara. It made some of my sparsest of lashes look longer and thicker. Yeah, it took some getting used to, but once I got it down, I was sold. Are you excited to see some more results? Check out the rest of our Best of 2008 coverage throughout the Sugar network from food to celebs to movies.

I think regular Diorshow is ridiculous. Diorshow Iconic, however, is fabulous.

Dior mascara isn't that great. Actually the best mascara that people don't know about is Imju Fiberwig mascara. Seriously once you try it you will never go back to anything else. I have been using it for 3 years now, and everyone I introduce it too falls in love with it. They sell it as Sephora.

I used Dior show about a year ago and while I liked it, once the tube was gone I went back to my old drugstore favorite, Voluminous. I use Longcils Boncza (cake) mascara, too. Mascara is the most important part of my makeup routine and for me nothing has come close to either of these products.

I love diorshow mascara it's all I use and people always comment on my lashes! Just don't use the waterproof stuff it's impossible to get off and it clumps. But the regular stuff is INCREDIBLE!!

I tried Diorshow and was so unimpressed that after only a few uses, I went out and bought a new tube of Maybelline. Maybelline's new volumizing/lengthening formulas work wonders on my lashes. The Diorshow was so useless on me that I wouldn't repurchase it even if it cost $3.00.

I use Clinique Lash Doubling and it's awesome. Loreal's Voluminous is also good for the false lash look.

I been wanting to try Diorshow, but I don't know now if I'll buy it since most of you agreed that it's not really all that. I don't want to spend $20+ on a mascara I'll probably regret buying and use only once. Right now, I'm totally loving L'Oreal Doouble Extend Beauty Tubes and Maybelline's Volume Express. They both give me that luscious, fakey lash look I love. My very favorite is that classic Maybelline Great Lash. The best mascara ever in my opinion! :)

Ugh I HATE Diorshow with a passion, I used Diorshow unlimited and it was too greasy, and didn't really do much for my lashes. Plus it smudged easily and I was allergic. Now I've been using Clinique's Lash doubling mascara and its perfect :)

I haven't used either. I'm loving my Clinique High Definition Lashes Mascara.

I'm not sold on Givency. I must rub my eyes too much because it always ends up making horrible streaks on my face! Yikes! I agree with Angela. The badGal Lash is quickly becoming my favorite.

I bought the Diorshow "Blackout" formula. I tried it three times. It has been sitting on my vanity ever since, while I use my Volume Couture by Max Factor every day.... The Dior flakes off WAY too easily, and is DEFINITELY over-hyped!

Ditto on everyone above, I HATE the regular Diorshow. I agree with you though Bella, I love my Givenchy. And actually it was a tie between that and the NEW Dior mascara, the Iconic. The traditional Diorshow is definitely overhyped for what it delivers (for the record my lashes are a decent length but lacking in volume and very very STRAIGHT so i'm always looking for a good curling mascara) but the Iconic is awesome.

I hhaaaaated Diorshow the only time I bought a was like glue, so gooey and clumpy :sick:. I don't know if it was because I had the waterproof kind (i never wear waterproof mascara) or what. But my fave of the year was Benefit's BadGal Lash..amazing :)

Those two mascara are the sh*ttiest mascara I've ever tried before. Peoples create to much hypes for it for nothing.

I have short and wimpy lashes so Diorshow works well for me because I need volume more than definition. I can see how for girls that already have good lashes it might not work, because it is not that good in the definition department. But for me, like I said, at least I can SEE my lashes when I use Diorshow. I like the plum color that is a Sephora exclusive.

Sorry, but I think Diorshow mascara is one of the most overhyped, overrated mascaras out there. I didn't care for it at all--I HATE the huge brush and weird rose scent that the formula has. I guess if you're looking for volume, it might be good, but I look for definition and separation in a mascara, and this didn't do the job for me. I am dying to try that Givenchy one though!
