beauty on a budget: Max Factor 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper

take a look at Max Factor's 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper-- look familiar? yeah, i thought so...

so, to acknowledge the huge elephant in the room, i'll ask what you're already asking: what is the difference between this and CG's LashBlast?

my answer? not much. the packaging is almost identical, except for the colors, and if you look at the brush and the tube, there is no difference. another odd thing-- they even smell the same!

i find it odd that these are so similar, but to review this on its own, i will say it's really good. i did get a bit of clumping, but nothing that couldn't be worked out. i didn't experience any flaking or smudging as the day went on, nor did i have a problem with the huge wand applicator...

now i bet you're wondering if you should even bother to buy 2000 Calorie Lash Plumper if they are the same-- am i right? well, i really can't tell you what to buy, but i think that if you are a fan of LashBlast, stick with it. but if for some reason you loathe any and all CoverGirl products, or you just want to try it for yourself, then absolutely try the Max Factor.

find Max Factor 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper at a drugstore near you and online at
