There’s two things to remember about Easter eggs: they’re usually hidden in plain sight and they often have goodies in them.

By now, most already know that the Contra Code will create a screen flare effect in Facebook.  If you didn’t know this, you should try it.  Log into Facebook and use the Konami code: up up down down left right left right b a (enter).  Now wherever your mouse is on the screen will have a flare.  Fun!

To see the Contra Code in action on Facebook without using it on your account, go check out the short video posted by AllFacebook.com on their blog.

There are other Easter eggs on Facebook that aren’t as well known too.

One is the pirate language filter.  Go to your language options (usually bottom-left, under the Applications tab; or under Settings-Language, top right).  Sure enough, a Pirate Language option is there.  This ads a lot of “Arrrg” and “ye mateys” to your screen.

Another is hidden text, which is found all over the site.  This is the “white on white” text that used to be used by spammers in the old days to hide massive numbers of search keywords on the page to boost rankings.  On Facebook, they’re usually funny axioms.  Pick a friend and go to their friends list, then scroll down to the white space separator between the page navigation list.  Highlight that white space.  Quails with the what now?

For a more thorough look at Facebook Easter eggs and apps, check out the Easter Egg area on Mashable.

Amazingly, all this fun and excitement is even profitable.  Well, maybe the Easter eggs aren’t specifically, but Facebook itself and even the game makers who create the little Facebook plugin games are showing profit.  Facebook on its own is well on its way towards a $500 million revenue year.  The little games that plug into it (like the ever-popular Mob Wars) are set to do the same too.

VentureBeat is reporting that between them, the little apps on Facebook like Mob Wars, Texas Hold’Em Poker, etc. are poised to pull in about half a billion in revenue this year.  That’s not insignificant, especially given that most people view these games as mere gimmicks and “codes of love.”  Turns out, they’re pretty big business.

Hopefully this doesn’t mean that Facebook will become inundated with them like Myspace has.  Or at least that these apps don’t take over the site and fill your screen with constant advertising and popups.  That was my main reason for leaving Myspace.  Apparently, I’m not alone.

    Our weekend of bb guns and BBQ came quickly Lebron  VIII which was nice as I was overly anxious to shoot again. When I  arrived my neighbor immediately showed me his back yard and I was Nike  Zoom Hyperfuse flabbergasted at just how much detail he had put into  making a makeshift shooting range. There where of course four shooting posts  complete with targets on them, a launcher for clay pigeons, and a row of cans  lined up for us to shoot at. Seeing all of this harkened me back to the days  when I had first started collecting as a young Kobe VI teenager.My neighbor and I spent what  felt like an hour, but was actually six hours shooting everything we could get  our hands on. The action stopped only because we both ran out of bbs and  pellets. I came with two Kevin Durant Shoes handguns and one air rifle and all three guns got a well deserved work out.  Finding the time to spend a few hours anywhere but my own home is difficult but  luckily my wife understands how important something like this Air  Force One to me and so we now have Air Max 90 a schedule set up that  allows me to partake in my hobby once more, and on a regular basis too!

    Well, if it’s a brush that you use and like, then just keep on using it. Then one day when it falls apart (the fakes aren’t made nearly as well), you can go and get yourself a real MAC makeup brush.

    Some of the fakes are really quite decent in their own right, and if you didn’t pay much money for them, why not go ahead and use them?

    If, however, you paid a lot for a fake, and you bought it recently, try to return it.

    Cleaning Your Makeup Brush (Whoever Made It)

    Now that you have your makeup brushes, whether by MAC, Sephora, Bare Escentuals, Smashbox or “maker unknown”, you do need to clean them now and again.

    Mac makeup kits are getting to be quite popular with the women who tend to follow the suggestions of others when they encounter problems with their personal makeup regimen. While one does not see much TV advertising on Mac makeup, its widespread use in the beauty industry has proven its actual effectiveness on the women’s faces.

    Specialists in the beauty parlors are one common source of information for women needing more information on what make up to use. This makes sense since the beauticians at the parlors have been in the beautifying game for so long, that they would likely know which beauty products to use for maximum results. Nothing beats actual experience, especially in this area of women’s interests.

    One of the things that have come up (unfortunately though) with the growing popularity of Mac makeup has been the proliferation of cheap but fake makeup brushes, aping supposedly the real and genuine product. These fake brushes are supposedly cheaper, but actually are of inferior quality.

    As in any industry, fakers and scammers have also targeted Mac makeup since it has become widely accepted by women users. The fakers are out to make a fast buck riding on the popularity of anything, including the Mac makeup brush.

    Women, the fakers know, are quite gullible when it comes to the pricing of a product, like Mac makeup. They tend to go for the cheaper type of makeup if they can help it, not knowing that they could get faked products instead of the original ones. They do not realize that they could be just wasting money in doing this – trying to save up on buying a the makeup brush OPI Nail Polish
    and finding out later that they are getting an inferior kind of brush.

    If you are one not so knowledgeable on beauty products, like make up brushes, it is better for you to consult the experts in this line. Go to the beauty shop – especially the one you have previously patronized – and ask the beauty specialists there. They would be able to give you the right tips. It is better to do it this way, since you can be assured of getting the correct information from a reliable source.

    They would likely recommend for you to get the real Mac brush – quite costly – but then you are assured of the proven quality of this thing. You will not be throwing away your money uselessly.

    If cosmetics are a high priority on your shopping list, then the best place to buy them is by going online. In today’s economic climate more and more of us are looking at ways of saving money on consumer products. Everyone is turning to the internet to find the best bargains. Cosmetics are now highly searched for online as more of us are looking for discount cosmetics of the very best quality.

    The internet has many online retailers selling a range of branded cosmetics at discounted prices. The beauty products range from high street brands including L’Oreal, Revlon, No. 7, Bourjois, and Maybelline as well as high end makeup brands such as MAC and Christian Dior.

    Before buying any type of cosmetic online always research the online retailer first. Thoroughly look at the products being offered and check to see they are authentic. If prices are ridiculously cheap, ask yourself why a couple of questions – Are these products genuine? And are they still fresh not stale products? Buying online always has a certain element of risk attached and you cannot always be sure what you are buying is genuine. However, following some simple guidelines when buying discount cosmetics online can help you to ensure the products you are buying are genuine.

    When it comes to cosmetics you have to be pretty clued up about the products that are available on the market. When you visit an online retailer always check them out first – testimonials and feedback, methods of payment and company contact details. Doing the research at the beginning will help you in the long run and ensure the discount cosmetics you are buying are authentic.

    How to ensure the cosmetics are fresh and not stale

    · Make sure the online retailer is happy to refund you if you are not 100% satisfied with the products you are buying providing you have not opened them.

    · Check cosmetic brands on the high street and if the online retailer has the same product then you know the cosmetics are current trend

    · Ask the retailer how often they change products and ask about expiry dates. This way you will know how fresh the cosmetics really are.

    How to save money on discount cosmetics

    · As there is no middleman and you are buying direct, retailers can keep their prices low therefore passing the savings directly onto the consumer.

    · If online retailers have sales then that is the best time to buy as they will usually offer additional discounts and promotions such as 3 for 2 or buy one get one free as well as free shipping over a certain spend amount. This means additional savings to you.

    By following these simple tips you can buy discount cosmetics online at a cheaper price. Being savvy means you can save money on nail care products, foundation, eye makeup, fragrances, lip plumping products and many more cosmetics.

    I got bitten by the makeup bug recently and the credit goes to the plethora of beauty and makeup blogs over the internet. I used to be a Kajal and lip balm person but my metamorphosis included the lure of names like  Mac Venomous VillainsMAC, NYX, Nars, Urban Decay and Elf. And that was awesome with a teeny problem. How to get my hands on them?

    So I turned to Google and was surprised to find that many women turn to online shopping to satiate their makeup needs and I was also introduced to NYX. I must say it is a very popular brand not only because its cheap but boasts quality rivaling MAC. Reading rave reviews of NYX round lippies and the Jumbo pencil I was a person obsessed.

    But to be very honest I was very skeptical about ordering online. I am actually very paranoid about my Visa. Eventually though my desire won over paranoia and I gave in but not before conducting a thorough research, which I will share with you today.

    There are a variety of such websites but only a handful ship to India. I have bought from two of them and being the cynic that I am I ordered stuff worth only a 1000 bugs from each. So lets get down to them:

    Cherry Culture

    It is based in California started in 2006 and the most popular among its contemporaries in the US as well as internationally. Just Google “cherry culture haul” to get an idea of its popularity. That is why I chose this for my first ever online shopping destination and I was not disappointed. Well until my next purchase.

    Shop Craze

    I got my Cherry Culture haul and was satisfied with almost everything except the shipping rates, so I decided to do some more research and I stumbled across Shop Craze. This is a fairly new venture about 2 years old but to its credit has some good reviews too. Plus it shipped internationally at better rates than Cherry Culture. So I gave in once again and ordered within a month from my last purchase. Greedy you say? Well I have nothing to say in my defense except that I’m glad I did cause in the process I discovered a great website.

    I’m Sonia and I love talking about the loves of my life which are too many to count. Currently though they are Make-up and Beauty. Check out my blog for the detailed article.

    OPI nail products are intended to be nothing but the top in quality, they continue to maintain this quality partially due to the fact that they have been family owned since they were started and still are. It also does not hurt things any that they are one of the leading companies in the industry and put a lot of time and effort into the research of their products before they make them available on the market.

    In order to ensure the safety of their customers, OPI nail products are only sold to professionals who know how to use the products. There are also a set of instructions included with each of the products that is sold to help ensure that it is being used in the fashion that it was intended to be. Another thing that OPI is doing to help make sure their customers are staying safe is helping scientists and government agencies in researching, developing, and setting the standards for safety within the industry.

    No matter how much the OPI nail products are committed to fashion and the development of fashion, they are still trying to be environmentally friendly as well. They do not test any of their products on animals of any kind. For those who will only buy products that have not been tested on animals this is good news because that means that you too can have the best quality in nail fashion.

    For those with access to the internet you can visit the OPI nail studio online. This is a page that shows a picture of a hand and gives you the option to change the skin tone and fingernail length so that it looks more All OPI Nail Polishlike that of your own skin. After you have done this you can then choose from all of the different colors that OPI nail products offer to see what the color would look like on you. This would also work great if you wanted to do something nice as a gift for someone else, but wanted to be sure of the color options that would look good on them ahead of time.

    OPI has also set up a foundation that donates to multiple different charities. They have donated amounts that range in the millions since the foundation was originally set up. One such charity that they donate to is a health clinic that is solely for those without insurance benefits. Another thing that the foundation does is to give computers to the children of those who are employed by the company to help them in their educational goals.

    All in all, it is no wonder that OPI nail products is one of the leading companies in the beauty product industry. They put vast amounts of time and money into keeping their products top of the line and top in quality as well as making sure that they are completely safe for use. It also helps that they are investing in the future of their customers and the general public with the charitable contributions that they make and their computer purchasing program for children of their employees. This leaves them with a great reputation as well as a quality product.

    I find it amusing when clients tell me that they keep their polish in the refrigerator. I can’t seem to figure out why. Then the answer came to me. The polish has been kept in the dark (prevents the polish from changing color) and the cold air slows down the air molecules. I personally think that there are better ways to keep your polish fresh (and leave room for the milk in the frig). As I’ve mentioned, keeping polish stored in the dark or out of direct sunlight is very important. Direct sunlight and even indirect sunlight (a bright room) can distort the original color of the polish. I’ve worked in a spa that had bright light coming into the nail room in the morning. This spa had to replace the OPI color Coney Island Cotton Candy about once every two months. The color would turn yellow and become very unappealing to the customer. Another thing that I’ve noticed is that a lot of people do not know how to keep the neck of the bottle clean. By keeping the neck and the inside cap of the bottle clean, you’ll keep your polish fresher, longer. You ask why? Well, when there is a build-up of polish around the neck and inside the cap, it will   OPI Texas Collection
    allow more air into the bottle and thicken the polish quicker.

    So, how do you keep the neck and the inside cap of the bottle clean? You can do it the usual way, with a little polish remover on a lint-free paper towel and wipe them off every time you polish your nails. Or you can just add a little caution to how you pull the brush out of the bottle. As you pull the brush out of the bottle, wipe off the excess polish inside the bottle instead of on the top of the bottle. This will reduce the amount of times you need to clean the neck and the inside cap of dried out polish. You’ll also save yourself the headache of trying to open a bottle of polish that won’t open because the cap is stuck on with dried polish.

    If the polish is already thick, use polish thinner to thin it out, not polish remover. Polish remover can sometimes break the polish down incorrectly and make it chip faster. You can pick up polish thinner at beauty supply houses like Sally’s. Fresh base coat nail polish also works to thin polish without effecting the consistency. Also, you can get more out of your polish (if you use it a lot) by buying two of the same type of polish (base coats, top coats, color polish). Use one bottle to apply to your nails and use the other to refill the first. Instead of only getting a half bottle out of each bottle (one bottle out of two), you’ll get 1? bottles out of the two. It is important to note, don’t use a third bottle because the original polish has broken down too much with thinning that the original polish will chip faster than a fresh bottle.

    Hope this helps your polish stay fresher, longer.
