Eye of the Day/Beer of the Day

Hey friends!

I’ve got a pretty purple eye look today and a fabulous Christmas beer. Check out the EOTD and BOTD!

Eye of the Day:

Please excuse the eyebrows, but today’s Eye of the Day features Hello Waffle’s Ethereal Voice on the lid.

I can not say enough about this beautiful color. It’s a mauvey warm purple with golden shimmer, and it’s perfect for work or going out. It’s such a multi-dimensional, shimmery color, I kinda checked out my eye balls in the mirror all day while I was wearing it. I looked GOOD.

In the picture below I’m using Wet N Wild’s Walking on Eggshells’ Crease Color and Browbone Color to balance it with neutrals and make it work appropriate. I like using a sticky base to bring out the shimmer, but it works great with regular primer, too.

You can get a full size for about $6 at Hello Waffle’s website, (or a sample for about $2-$5 if you don’t believe me), and it’s worth every penny.

I wore it to work and it was totally appropriate.

 

Beer of the Day: Karbach’s Yule Shoot Your Eye Out Seasonal Ale

I’m kinda weird in that I’m not A Christmas Story fan, but Mr. Danger is and he basically demanded I feature this beer. It’s pretty much his all time favorite Christmas beer.

This creation comes from Karbach Brewery in Houston, Texas. It’s 8% by ABV and it might make your Christmas wishes come true!

 I personally think this tastes like gingerbread cookie beer. I definitely pick up on ginger and nutmeg spices, on the first taste.  It’s also lightly malty, but not too sweet. I also feel it kinda leans more towards a stout profile rather than an ale, but nonetheless if you’re not a dark beer fan, this probably isn’t for you.

However, if you’ve always wondered what gingerbread beer tasted like or you’re in the mood for a good spiced beer, this will be right up your alley. Plus, the label art on this would make it a great gift for any craft beer loving friend or family member.

Rebs’ Beer Rating: 4.5/5

(That’s right I just created an arbitrary beer rating system. Don’t worry, it’s going to be super scientific.)

Questions of the Day:
-Favorite purple eye shadow?
-Favorite Christmas movie?
-Any desserts you’ve ever wondered would work out as beer/cocktails?

Love,

Rebs
