I don’t know about you guys, but this week was even more bananas for me than usual. I mean I had to write this in my calendar so I wouldn’t forget my plans for tonight.
Anyway, by the time this post goes live, I should be
in my pajamas, drinking a beer living up my Friday.
Speaking of things that are exciting. I had been hunting down the Wet N’ Wild Limited Edition Fall Matte Lipsticks, and I found them in a random Fergie display at my local Walgreens! I know I mentioned two of them in my Fall Trends post, but I would be remiss if I didn’t share more of the Wet N’ Wild Fall lipsticks. Because if you hadn’t heard, they are the bomb.com. Yes. I went there.
I also have the perfect seasonal beer for you. I’ve heard this rumor that in some parts of the country it’s actually feeling cooler? Since it’s still 358598 degrees where I live, I’m sticking with my Back to School Happy Hour theme for one more week. Maybe I will feel more fallish when I can actually walk into work without breaking a sweat.
Anyway let’s kick off Happy Hour!
Makeup Product of the Week: Wet N’ Wild Limited Edition Fall Matte Lipsticks
I love matte lipsticks this time of year, so I was super excited to hear about these $2 limited editions to the Wet N’ Wild line.
The colors are all very pigmented and have a great lasting time. On the darker shades, there is even a bit of stain that stays behind. They are also very lightweight, so I don’t have any problems with drying, which is great with matte lipsticks.
My only complaint with these lipsticks is I have to make sure I exfoliate before hand. I don’t know if my lips are evil or not, but I just feel like the lipsticks don’t apply all that smoothly on me.
However, for $2, I can overlook that.
Beer of the Week: Southern Tier’s Harvest Ale
I already love many of their seasonal editions, so when I saw this Harvest Ale at my local grocery store, I lunged for it with the speed of a beer-obsessed cheetah. (That metaphor makes no sense, but we’re rolling with it. It’s Friday.)
And I really enjoyed it! The Harvest Ale is an Extra Strong Bitter Ale with a 6.7% ABV. Despite being a fall seasonal beer, there aren’t really any spicy or pumpkin-y notes. That’s fine with me, because the overall taste is still very pleasant. Mainly I picked up on its malty flavor, and you can really taste the hops, as well.
I have to say, I don’t know if I would recommend this beer to beginners. As the style suggests, it is a beer with a strong flavor, (although I didn’t necessarily find it bitter.) However, I think if you paired this with an equally flavorful dish, such as spicy foods or a bold cheese, it might balance out the flavors.
And if you are not a beginner, do yourself a favor and check out this beer. I think it will be perfect for enjoying with sweaters and cooler weather on a porch. (LOL, if I put a sweater on right now, I might die of heatstroke, but I’m pretending for those of you in the rest of the country).
And I just found out there’s a line of Limited Edition Halloween lipsticks by Wet N’ Wild. So I think I know what I’ll be doing Saturday.
That’s it for this week! I’m going to get my pajama party started! Have a great weekend!
