max-factor-vivid-impact-lipcolorThe beauty rule that we hear the most often is that you should play up your eyes or your lips, just not both. By focusing on one feature you play up your own natural beauty and create a focal point. This spring people are embracing the bold lip, and finishing off with mile long lashes. MAX Factor has the perfect combo for this look: Vivid Impact Lipcolor and 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper mascara. (more…)

Skyscraper Heights

lash-stilettoHeels give you height, confidence and help you appear more slender. The new Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Mascara from Maybelline New York does the same sort of thing for your lashes. It lifts, defines and lengthens for a bold look.

The unique Grip and Extend brush gets hold of each lash to separate and stretch your natural length by up to 70 percent. Pro-vitamin B5 and silk protein strengthen, condition and give you a high gloss shine.

For the best results, sweep the brush from the root to the tip, while wiggling it slightly, to coat each lash from every angle. A few layers of this mascara will have you looking like you’ve got fake ones on.
