Mascara: YSL Everlong or Diorshow Unlimited?

I have JL vouchers that I want to spend on a good lengthening mascara. I like the sound of Diorshow Unlimited and YSL Everlong (although I'm not sure the latter comes in brown, which is what I want for everyday wear). Anyone have any experience, or recommend an alternative?

Hi there, I am a make up artist and I can definitely recommend the Diorshow, it really lengthens and volumizes the lashes, also lasts for ages as it is quite thick.

Hi I am an obsessed masara addict and YSL Falselash is still the best mascara. Diorshow is a decent mascara but in no way produces the length of YSL Falselash

Is the Falselash (Effet Faux Cils? Is that the right one?) quite heavy/volumising though? I'm looking for something lightish, for every day.

I wear falseeyelash everyday, but there again my eyelashes aren't very thick
have a look at make up alley they have lots of mascara reviews from ordinary users and make up artists alike

I am also a make up artist and echo what laciderfarmer says. I was rather unimpressed by the YSL mascara personally. Only thing with the Dior one is the brush is quite big which takes a little getting used to as it can make it easy to hit your skin with the brush and therefore get mascara blobs. My tip for that is to let the mascara dry completely before rolling a DRY cotton bud over it to take it off without affecting the make up underneath. Don't be tempted to use make up remover!

Thanks for the replies. I had a look on and the two I had in mind had similar scores in the reviews. So at the shops today I went for the Dior one because I preferred the bottle!

I have Faux Cils- it's larvely.
