Pigs, Tweets + Mascara Review. Yum.

Hey locas,

How about that damn swine stuff, huh?
At first I didn't take notice because like every damn new illness that comes through the US - some red alert comes on and everyone is freaking out and raising their damn blood pressure. Remember anthrax? My town got hit with it already. 2 schools were shut down. =/

Wanna hear the latest stupidity about this through a facebook "friend?".
She goes on her status, "I'm tired of this whole swine bs...everyone just use bleach! Bleach kills every bacteria. I learned through bio, I'mma be a RN nurse so I would know blah blah blah I need to stfu blah blah."
Yeah, swell advice. Lemme go dump my body in a big ass tub of fucking BLEACH!
Bleach?!
Ever heard of water and soap or hand sanitizer?
Oh bleach works best, huh...
Yeah - if you're a damn appliance.

While I'm on a rant.
WTF IS TWITTER AND WHY IS IT SO DAMN POPULAR?
I'm sorry. I just find constant status updates annoying. Especially off mundane things.
Everything has a twitter and is twittering and they speak to their tweets. Wtf, seriously?
I'm those folks who delete Myspace/Facebook people who do constant updates of boring shit throughout the day. One to several updates a day is good enough for me.
No one should care about how long your dookie is and I will not read, NOPE.


Okay, now I'mma start my review. HAHA!
--------------------


NAME:
Max Factor 2000 Calorie (straight wand)
PROMISE/ADVERTISE CLAIM:
Get a dramatic look with 2000 Calorie Mascara — it volumizes lashes up to 200%. Water resistant and smudge-proof hypoallergenic formula is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. With straight brush applicator
PRICE:
Depending on store - between $6-9
WHERE I BOUGHT IT:
Walmart
PACKAGING:
Blackest Black

PROS/LIKES:
+Voluminzes very well
+Gives good length
+Separates lashes nicely

CONS/DISLIKES:
+Can be prone to clumps if not applied correctly or too much
+Mines had a bit of a funky smell

OVERALL:
+
I know this is somewhat of an old cult favorite and it lives up to the hype.
Does it give 200% - nope. What mascara does, anyways? But it does the job and does it nicely. I'm curious to try the newer version of the 2000 calorie (stiffer bristles). They even have one with a curved wand. I like the dramatic look all in one mascara and this delivered.
BUY AGAIN?
+Yes
RATING:
4/5

--------------

That's all for now. Giveaway will be coming soon.
I'm trying to take pictures of all swatches of things but my camera is so old that I hardly can take much.

Stay away from Ms. Piggy and wash your ass with bleach! *rolls eyes* ;]

Later locas,

  1. stop being a twitter hater... lol nah.. i used to think the same thing when i would see the widget on ppl's pages.. like wtf does that random bit have to do with anything?? no one wants to know that you are babysitting your little cousins!

    BUT! it's fun and like a universal aim if you ask me. it's social media and another way to promote yourself i guess. i was introduced when i went out to LA for a blogger conference and i still didnt get it.. but then when i went to NY fashion week, it was the best way to find out what was going on! where a celeb was sighted, a meet up was taking place, etc.! as a blogger, i can connect to other bloggers a little more intimately than leaving comments, connect with companies and get updates on their products, if you choose to follow some celebs they are entertaining and some send photos of what they are doing instead of getting the paparazzi media driven images. i can also log on when i want the entertainment or totally not be involved. some ppl only use it for their blogs or for biz purposes (they don't tweet about their lives, but whatever pertaining to their blog/biz).

  2. LOL. Oh, I will hate on that!
    I actually have it but find it so ugh.
    I'm just not a status-updater twitting everyone, person. And all those entertainment twits or twats or however you call it - I follow a few I really enjoyed but not enough to constantly follow.

  3. first of all, that mascara is cool. your lashes are nice girl and thanks for the review.

    about the bleach...bleach does kill lots of bacteria that hand sanitizer can't. actually hand sanitizer is another one of those things that cause high blood pressure in people. its like "oh no i touched the doorknob at the mall, i need sanitizer or else i'm gonna die!" it's a little ocd to me. just wash your hands. plus some bacteria is good. it's not always a good thing to wash your hands all the time.

    the flu though and bleach? a virus is a virus! if it's in the air, you get it and there's no cure. you just treat the symptoms really. then the virus because inactive.

    about the whole twitter thing: girl i can go on and on about it. i actually started twitter to see what it's all about. i actually update about once a day saying things like, "anyone have a suggestion on what to buy for mascara?" but i hardly get responses. i think a lot of people are addicted to the idea of either knowing everything everyone else is thinking or want everyone else to know what they're thinking. some people are obsessed with knowing what ashton kutcher is doing. me, not so much. but to each his own.

  4. ROTFLMAO @ BLEACH! She's going to be one horrible nurse. Bleach is not mean to be used on humans!!! WTF?!!

    I'm over hearing about this damn "swine flu" or whatever it is they're calling it now.
    THE FLU KILLS PEOPLE EVERY YEAR...unfortunately. Our flu season is pratically over so the heat will eventually die all this down.
    ANYBODY ELSE NOTICED ALL THIS HAPPENED AFTER OBAMA WAS DOWN THERE IN MEXICO?! Susppeeecttt!

    LMFAO! Omg Celly, TWITTER, TWITTER, TWITTER!
    I'm feeling the exact same way you are!! AH!

    That mascara looks nice. I ALWAYS use Maybelline. lol I just recently tried NYX Doll Mascara and I found a new love! =D

  5. I'm thinking of giving this a try now.. even though I probably shouldn't spend more on mascara anymore since I already have so many!

    & I agree bout Twitter but that might just be cause surprisingly it isn't as popular in Canada. Either way I don't really give a damn when people update their Facebook status or MSN status with something they are doing at the moment or with something bout their personal life. I can understand if it's being done to promote a business or blog & making updates bout that, but otherwise, Twitter seems pretty useless. It's just another way for people to creep on or stalk others openly & it's being masked by the term 'networking'

  6. I think that facebook friend bleached her brain ;-)
    Oh and I don´t understand the Twitter obsession either? Am I normal? lol. I have a Twitter, but only for Temptalia´s twitter contests.

    Btw thanks for the fitness tips. I can´t afford a gym, so no treadmill (I hate those things anyway. But the elliptical is fun, if working out can be called fun at all). But I do live on the 6th floor in my apartment building, so I could just run the stairs up and down. I´m so gonna do this!

    Btw, keep on hating! I think it´s entertaining to rant about things that annoy you. Too many people are just too polite (or boring?) to voice their opinions and be honest for once
