We love a company that goes to the limit to test a new product. That's why we couldn't help but cheer when we heard what Max Factor did to test splish splash underwater mascara.The company didn't just have some model wear the mascara for a lap in a pool or a quick shower. Instead, it gave this stuff to sea world's synchronized swim team. These folks spend up to three hours at a time in the water. Splish splash stayed on even though it was submerged for hours until it was removed.A person would have to be a bit obsessive to demand that mascara stay perfect underwater.

You don't ski or snowboard, and you wouldn't watch the luge if they tied Saddam Hussein to one and sent him downhill with his hair on fire. Figure skating is too frou-frou for you, with all the feathers and sequins and mascara -- and you're not crazy about women's figure skating, either. (BA-BOOM! Thanks, I'm here all week, try the veal.) Curling reminds you of something hotel chambermaids came up with while on peyote, and hockey puts you to sleep quicker than the phrase: "Ladies and gentlemen, tonight's featured speaker, Al Gore ... " So you've made up your mind.

Joanna Bonicker is a self-described fragrance fanatic who's constantly researching new products on the Internet and sniffing testers at department-store counters. So, when she grew curious about French perfume company Comptoir Sud Pacifique a few months ago, she felt she had two choices: Risk annoying her husband by shelling out $79 for a new eau de toilette or log onto makeupalley.com's makeup-swapping site. Bonicker chose the latter, arranging to trade a half-full bottle of J'Adore perfume by Christian Dior for a similarly used Comptoir Sud Pacifique spray with a woman in New York she had never met. "My husband thinks I'm crazy," said Bonicker, 29, a Baltimore waitress who has more than 40 bottles of perfume and scented body lotion thanks to her swaps.

It's true; black is the new black again, but that is for clothes and clothes only. For your face, makeup has taken a decidedly more colorful turn this season, with the trendiest shades moving from safe choices (like taupes and pinks) to bold greens and funky purples. It may sound psychedelic, but the look is really pretty, particularly when done right. (Read: No Mimi from The Drew Carey Show). It also tells the world you're not afraid to play with your makeup or take yourself less than seriously.

Miracle mascara We've heard eyelashes described as full. And we've heard them described as thick. But we'd never before heard them described as "D cup" until Bourjois Pump Up the Volume came along. Called the "push-up bra" of mascaras, Pump Up the Volume's silicone-infused formula gives volume to lashes, and the nylon fiber applicator brush helps lashes look thicker by distributing mascara right to the tips and separating them to prevent clumping. Other effective ingredients in the mascara include a mix of waxes and an alkaline polymer.

(purple), "peace" (bronze), "Aquarius" (teal)

Paul's Day Spa and Salon at the Festival at Woodholme in Pikesville is bringing Darphin, an exclusive line of French makeup, to Baltimore. According to Diane Resnick, senior cosmetics buyer at Paul's, Darphin's skin-care products are top-notch, so when word came that the company was introducing a small collection of makeup products, she was thrilled. We had to see for ourselves, so we headed to Paul's for a makeover from Diane. Expecting only makeup, we were pleasantly surprised by the luxurious skin treatment that accompanied it. First, Diane applied Vitalskin Cleansing Milk ($40)

MOSCOW -- Perhaps nothing reflects the changing Russian market as much as the car magazine Behind the Wheel, published since April 1928.Once a combination instruction manual and Communist propaganda pamphlet, it has become a glossy, full-color tTC consumer guide, printed in Italy.Russian and foreign cars are evaluated on the basis of test drives. "We are independent," says Vladimir Arusha, the deputy editor."I am very proud we don't belong to any bank or any enterprise producing cars. We live on what we earn and can say what we want."

It's a heady swirl of scents that includes Bulgarian roses, freesia and white musk, and it's encased in a clear, rectangular bottle that's an echo of minimalist artists Donald Judd and Mark Rothko. The final product is a sensual new perfume named Chic by Carolina Herrera, a combination the designer said she wanted to suit the complex, independent woman today. "It's all about the modern woman," said Herrera, looking impeccable in a gray suit and cream blouse during a recent visit to Saks Fifth Avenue in Chevy Chase to launch Chic.

Spring has two faces. Hard-core fashion crowds will be making themselves up '80s style, while play-it-safers will opt for a classic, fresh look. If you're seeking a Cyndi-Lauper-inspired visage, you'll want to load on the glittery eye shadow, nonblack mascara and thick eyeliner. "It's all about fun," said Molly Nover, Sephora.com beauty editor. "There's lots of color, lots of bold liner, which we really haven't seen all that often. The must-have item for everyone will be eyeliner -- black, colored, liquid or pencil."
