Benefit’s “High Brow” claims …” an instant brow lift in a stick. Want eyes that appear 10 years younger? Give yourself a ‘lift’ with high brow…a brow lifting Stick!"
comparing to my MAC Studio Finish Concealer in Medium.
I was tagged by Miss Bargain Princess on YT.
Smashbox Chocolate: Chocolate Grey (UD Formula)*Satin Taupe w/ Smoke and diamonds would make this*
Time and Space: Copper (Frost)*try woodwinked*
Wedge: Beige Taupe (Matte)
Shroom: Soft golden beige w/ opalescent shimmer (Satin)
Basically asking me what's my "Top 4 eyeshadow's". Well, that was easy for me..."Shroom" is the best ever!!!..Looks good on its on and as a h/l.
"Time and Space"... Gives me a dewy look on my lid (almost like Bronze CCB) would. So, like "Shroom" you can wear this on your own as well.
"Wedge" ...to me it's the perfect midsection color. Just imagine the way emote works for your cheekbones. Yuppers! That's how this baby works for your eyes.
"Chocolate(Smashbox Muse Artist Palette)!!"... I'm so in love with this color. It makes the perfect smokey eye look perfect on me. When I tend to use black eyeshadow..it looks too much and not right for my deep tan complexion. This e/s does the trick.

Senate passes bill to delay digital TV switch
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Senate passed a bill on Monday to delay the nationwide switch to digital TV signals, giving consumers nearly four more months to prepare.
The transition date would move to June 12 from February 17 under the bill that was fueled by worries that viewers are not technically ready for the congressionally-mandated switch-over.
It also would allow consumers with expired coupons, available from the government to offset the cost of a $40 converter box, to request new coupons. The government ran out of coupons earlier this month, and about 2.5 million Americans are on a waiting list for them.

I want my hair to be this BIG before the year is over.
4A hair has an “S” pattern to it and type 3 hair is very springy. If you pull on it, it bounces back into its original curly state. This type of hair can sometimes be a challenge to straighten, especially 3C hair. However, if you blow-dry and use a hot comb or straightener the hair will have a smoother sleeker finish.
|My hair easily gets straight ... when wet..I can slick it back..so thats a tip for yous 4a/3c ;)|
