First, I’ll share mine!

Haul: Well, I got Stereo Rose in the mail from MAC… the one that was backordered.  So, that was unexpected.  And hence, we had a giveaway!

Excited for: Seeing Wicked (the play)!

Friday plans: Help the boy find a nice pair of pants!  I wish I could say I was going to Wife Swap it up, but I’ve now watched every episode produced. Boo.

Congratulations to @fabsdarling!

Having nearly black hair, I definitely do!  For brows, I just tweeze.  I really need to get mine threaded, and I also need to have a little one-on-one tweeze session with myself (long overdue!)…  For my upper lip, I shave using Eve Pearl’s Travel Razor–since there are periods where I do lip swatches every day for a week, waxing/cream removal just doesn’t work well.
