Max Factor 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper!

I love this mascara.  These days, I can’t afford to spend $30 on mascara, so to find a comparable mascara for $10 or less is huge!! I tried this, and I really, really loved it! New Max Factor 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper creates lashes that look thicker, longer and sexier – instantly versus bare lashes.

Couple things I love about this mascara.  First, I love the brush.  The brush is so great, you get literally NO CLUMPS when you’re applying it.  Second, it goes on smoothly!  With other mascaras, it takes several applications to get the look you’re after, but not with this product.  You get the perfect look, after only a single application!  Third, I love that you can buy this mascara for a fraction of what you would spend on other comparable “high end” mascaras.  You’re saving at least half the money, and getting better mascara!

o MAX Factor is bringing the trend of prestige lash plumping to mass
o Increases thickness up to 2x versus bare lashes
o The patented Fat Wrap Brush is designed to grab every single lash, even the little ones
o The patented Fat Wrap formula works with the Fat Wrap Brush as it wraps around each and every lash for an extreme, voluptuous effect.
o 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper’s suggested retail price is $9.98 available at drugstore.com and Ulta.com.

Max Factor Vivid Impact Lipcolor!

Max Factor Vivid Impact Lipcolor!

New Max Factor Vivid Impact Lipcolor joins the bold Vivid Impact family as a standout lipcolor that tempts you to stray away from the predictable shade palette.  The ultra rich, pure pigment lipcolor offers head turning looks from classic to bold, but always vivid!

This lipstick is so fun!! I love the colors, and I love how it looks when it’s on my lips! It goes on smooth, and feels amazing (like chapstick!) and the color looks gorgeous!

o Ultra rich, pure color lipcolor that is not grayed-out or watered-down
o Preferred 2-1 over the number one prestige lip color for the most premium quality look
o P&G Global Creative Design Director Pat McGrath custom designed the fashion-forward shade palette
o The rich shea butter formula acts like a lip balm to help seal moisture into the lips and the luscious conditioners increase wearability to help keep true color intact
o The suggested retail price of Vivid Impact Lipcolor is $7.98 available at drugstore.com and Ulta.com.

Psst…. want to get great beauty products while on a budget?

My family, like many has had to tighten the purse strings after feeling the economic issues impact our paycheck. I have found a few tricks so even while I’m watching the budget I can fit in some of my favorite beauty products.

I am sure this isn’t news to most of you but Walmart has some AMAZING prices on their beauty products. I just hit my local Walmart recently and stocked up without breaking the bank. I was able to get great everyday items and a few fun ones all while keeping in my budget.

Forget the drugstore find your closest Walmart and save on your favorite brands like Neutrogena, Loreal, Cover Girl, Almay, Nexxus and Aveeno!
