Happy Hour: Revlon Colorstay Foundation and Breckenridge Christmas Ale

Hey friends!

It’s Fridayyyyyy!

Today’s Happy Hour features my favorite drugstore foundation and foundation brush. Although I’ve been trying to move exclusively to cruelty-free makeup, I can’t quit Revlon’s Colorstay foundation. And I’m never quitting Real Techniques brushes, because they are a great bang for your buck.

For beer, we have one of my favorite Christmas Ales on the market. Is it sad that I love this time of year because holiday and winter beers are the best? I mean I enjoy it for other reasons, but this is really the best season for beer.

So let’s start Happy Hour!

Makeup Product of the Week: Revlon’s Colorstay Foundation ($10) and Real Techniques’ Expert Face Brush, ($9).

revlon color stay foundationI don’t have a lot of ways to wax poetic about foundation, but I will say I really love this one. It’s lightweight, doesn’t clog pores, and still gives me a smooth appearance. A little bit goes along way, and it lasts all day on my skin. There appear to be a lot of colors in the line, so your chances of getting a shade close to your own skin tone is pretty good!

I dab a bit of foundation on the back of my hand and then use the foundation brush to apply it evenly over my skin. I really don’t need too much to achieve the full coverage I want. I’ve noticed my powder blush also sticks well to this. Finish up with a dab of powder, and then I’m good to go! For $10, I haven’t been able to top Revlon’s ColorStay Foundation yet.

Beer of the Week: Breckenridge Christmas Ale 

breckenridge christmas aleBreckenridge says: The chill of a Colorado high-country winter calls for a beer with extra flavor and strength. Here it is. At over 7% alcohol, with a sturdy texture and rich flavors of caramel and chocolate, our holiday seasonal is the fermented equivalent of a good fire.

Rebs says: If you are looking for a pleasant, drinkable Christmas beer, you are in the right place! I find this to be crisp and malty, with just a bit of the spices you find in beers this time of year. There are definitely caramel notes in this, but I don’t really taste chocolate. There is a bit of a tangy, burnt sugar kind of aftertaste, but nothing terrifying.

You could definitely bring this beer to a Christmas party without people shouting, “WHY IS THIS SO HOPPY?” Or whatever it is non-craft beer lovers shout. I don’t know. They aren’t my friends. (Just kidding, if you don’t like beer, I still like you.)

That’s it for tonight! However, I will be posting throughout the weekend! (I’m desperately trying to catch up.) So I’ll see you guys soon!

PS: Indie Advent Calendar will be up later tonight!

Questions of the Day:
-What is your favorite foundation?
-What is your favorite brush?
-Do you shout, “Why is it so hoppy?” when drinking craft beer? We can still be friends if you say yes!

Love,

Rebs!
