The classic Diorshow mascara has had an impressive makeover. The new formula works to add volume progressively, meaning you can build your lashes as much or as little as you want, and the innovative new "Air-Lock" system prevents excess air getting into the tube when you open it, meaning the formula won't dry out as quickly. Double win.
