The Diorshow Liner Long-Lasting Backstage Eyeliner is a new product that was launched together with their Fall makeup collection. They weigh 0.30g each and are made in Italy. Retailing at S$34 each, I believe these will be added to their permanent collection.
These eyeliners immediately caught my attention as they reminded me very much of my favourite Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-lasting Eyeliners (see my collection, including swatches here).
I picked up the Diorshow Liner Long-Lasting Backstage Eyeliner in 098 Carbon – a matte black and 178 Navy – a metallic deep blue.
Swatches below includes comparison with Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-lasting Eyeliner in 10 Ébéne and 30 Marine. The Dior eyeliners are softer and creamier in texture which explains the sheen coming through in the swatches below. They glide on the lids very smoothly and the colour payoff is excellent.
They all claimed to be waterproof so I put them on a test under running water for a couple of seconds. All the colours stayed exactly the same after I pat off the excess water. No feathering nor fading occurred.
When removing with a makeup remover, the Dior eyeliners came off with just a wipe whereas the Chanel eyeliners needed a little more effort.
With just a dollar difference in price, which would be your pick? The Diorshow Liner Long-Lasting Backstage Eyeliner or the Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner?
It’s too early for me to tell which is better or which I prefer but I reckon the new Diorshow Liner Long-Lasting Backstage Eyeliner will become one of my favourite eyeliners in no time.
