This product, as others have mentioned, is very similar to CG Lash Blast. The only difference is that the bristles on the 2000 Calorie are a little longer, and the brush is more tapered, so it's a tiny bit easier to get to those lower and outer corner lashes. But, it's the same chubby tube (but in black instead of orange)
What I like about this is the Extreme Blackout color is a gorgeous, deep black. Also, this does volumize my lashes quite well, and also leaves my lashes feeling soft to the touch. I can use 2 coats without clumping. There are no smudgies or flakes (so far -- I've only had this for a couple weeks), and it is fairly easy to remove. IHowever, I do find that it does not lengthen as well as I would like, unfortunately, and thus does not give the "false lash effect" that all the other ladies are speaking of. (By the way, Gisele, as the latest Max Factor model, said that this gives her the false lash effect... guess you need to actually have it to work it - LOL.) Also, it made my curl sag a little bit, even though I only used 2 coats, so it should not have weighed my lashes down that much. For those 2 minor complaints, I am taking off 1 lippie.
For reference, I have short, thin eyelashes that need all the help I can get. Still, of all the mascaras I have ever tried, the only ones that truly give me a dramatic effect are Dior Show and YSL Faux Cils. *sighhhhhh*
