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.

Case #1: Mary-Kate Olsen vs Ashley Olsen
Although they are both wearing a heavily rimmed eye with nude lipstick, Ashley definitely did a better job here by going with a warmer lipstick and adding in blush. Mary-Kate just looks dead and washed out.


The Wrong: Mary-Kate Olsen vs The Right: Ashley Olsen

Lesson Here: Wear blush to warm up your complexion and steer clear of lipsticks that are too close to your complexion.

Dressed in a sleek black and white Dolce & Gabbana suit at the “Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion” Costume Institute Gala last night, singer Rihanna is officially back and looking good!

I am not too sure of the puffy sleeves but I *love* the denim blue and warm coral combo on the eyes and the nude lip. It is definitely more fun than the regular smoky eyes we see on the red carpet. What do you ladies think?
