Recently I tried Max Factor Volume Couture Mascara and I can't believe the results I got! It's hands down the best mascara I've ever used. I've tried a few from MAC and dozens of others, even Lash Blast. It volumizes at the base and lifts and curls. It doesn't clump either, I get perfect lashes each time and I was so amazed, I had to share. Can I email you the before-and-after pics?
Before-and-after pictures? I live for this sort of thing! To see the mascara in action, read more
Gisele Bundchen is one busy Brazilian these days. Not only is she the face of Dolce & Gabbana's latest scent, but she's also just signed on to model for Max Factor. E! Online reports that Gisele has signed a two-year, $2.5 million deal to endorse its products.
Of course, the beauty brand is mum, and we haven't heard anything from Gisele herself, but an insider told E! that it's a sweet deal. Apparently, Gisele's contract with Victoria's Secret had prohibited her endorsement of any beauty products, but now that she's a free agent, she's able to line up the lucrative deals that models dream of. If this is true, expect to see a lot more of Gisele over the next two years. Are you looking forward to it, or not so much?
I've been on a bit of a mascara kick lately, and the latest one to enthrall me is Max Factor Vivid Impact Mascara ($10.12, but cheaper at drugstores). It's a double-ended mascara with two formulas. The first, a base coat, separates and defines eyelashes. After letting that dry, you follow up with a highlighting top coat, which adds a little color. I tried it in Blushing Blue, which uses a deep blue top coat and a shimmery pink top coat.
You know the saying "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas"? Well, normally that's true, but I just read a sordid tale that didn't stay in Vegas. Let's just say it involves a woman who has a fling with an older gentleman... who has an unexpected connection to her boyfriend back home. I'm telling you, soap operas don't get this scandalous!
This story is one of dozens inspired by our sponsor Max Factor's new MAXalicious Naughty and Nice Collection, and the tales range from jaw-droppingly scandalous to sweetly innocent—just like the Naughty and Nice gloss collection itself. These sexy new glosses come in 28 different shades and are not at all sticky—all you get is shine, shine, shine.
Think you know whether you're naughty or nice? I thought I did—but now I might have to reconsider! I just took a quiz from our sponsor Max Factor to find out whether I'm naughty or nice, and—surprise—it turns out I'm somewhere in between.
What I like about this quiz is that after you take it, it not only serves up your answer; it gives you recommendations from the sexy new MAXalicious Naughty and Nice lip gloss collection, too, which comes in 28 different shades, is super shiny and is not at all sticky. Take the quiz and see for yourself. Your results might surprise you!
