Max Factor 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper Mascara Review

If you liked Cover Girl’s Lash Blast mascara, chances are you will love Max Factor’s 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper.

Just like the Lash Blast, the Extreme Lash Plumper Mascara has a big plastic brush, bulky packaging and a patented fat-wrap formula that promises to wrap and plump every single lash, from root to tip.

So did it deliver the thickness it claimed? You bet! My lashes looked instantly fuller, darker and I love how you can really pile this baby on without clumping or ending up with stiff, brittle lashes. It also wears really well and does not smear/smudge until I take it off with warm water and remover.

My only complaint is the big fat brush. While it does help thicken, I find it hard to maneuver on my tiny Asian lashes (a long, slender brush like the one in L’oreal’s Clean Definition Telescopic Mascara tends to work best on me). Plus when it comes to the lengthening department, this does not seem to do much at all (see how short my lashes are in the picture below!) I would not recommend it unless you have longer lashes to begin with.


  1. i love l’oreal’s clean definition telescopic mascara and covergirl’s lash blast mascara. i think i might check this one out when i’m finished using up all my other mascaras.

  2. Ah, thank you for the review!
    I might want to try this one out. I have fiberwig now (just for curling & length under false eyelashes), and every time I attempt wearing just mascara I give up on them to go back to my falsies.

  3. I really like your eyebrows! I’m currently using Bad Gal mascara (I’m not a huge fan) but I think after I use it up I’ll try out the MaxFactor. Thanks for your review! :)

  4. I totally agree! The big wand is a pain to deal with though I looove the formula. Why can’t they just ditch the big fat thing. :(
