How’s your week going? Do you need a duochrome in your life? I thought so.
Today’s EOTD/BOTD features one of my favorite Shiro eye shadows, I Loved a Maid, and the Blue Moon Horchata Ale that I’ve been yearningggggg for weeks to try now. So it’s very interesting, is what I’m saying.
Check it out!
EOTD: Shiro’s I Loved A Maid-Green-shifting gold shining out over a base of softened Lannister crimson
So I don’t like posting pictures of my full face because I’m weird, but it was the only way to truly capture the green shift in this eye shadow. It’s a really cool red base that shift green in natural and direct light.
A tip: It can be kinda tricky with primer, (this was not my first attempt playing with I Loved A Maid.) I used Glamour Doll Eye’s Glitter Fix, and I waited until it was realllllly close to dry to pat this shadow on. (If you put it on when the primer is too wet, you get more red base, and less shift, so timing is key.) Anyway, it’s a cool one-shadow eye look because the shift gives it a lot of character! So you can be lazy!

Beer of the Day: Blue Moon’s Cinnamon Horchata Ale
love horchata and all things horchata flavored, specifically beer, so I was very excited to try this! (And, no, Blue Moon is not my first horchata beer rodeo.) Quick mini lesson if you aren’t sure what horchata is: it’s a beverage made with ground up rice (or seeds depending on what part of the world you’re in), vanilla and cinnamon. So it tastes creamy and sweet, with a bit of spice.
Blue Moon Says:Our cinnamon-spiced ale is his interpretation of this delicious Latin beverage. It’s brewed with natural long-grain rice for a creamy texture to complement flavors of cinnamon, making it the perfect treat for a get-together with friends.
Rebs Says: The last horchata beer I tried was a porter, which made sense with the creamy flavors. In an ale format, it seems kinda thin and light to me. However despite the mouth feel, the flavor of this beer is interesting and enjoyable. It kinda reminds me of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, which I am absolutely not opposed to in a beer. It’s sweet and tastes like sugar and cinnamon. If you like churros, cinnamon toast, or even horchata itself, I would recommend at least trying this beer. I don’t know if I could drink a lot of this, but it’s fun as a light after dinner drink.
Rebs Rating: 3.5
Questions of the Day:
-Have you tried any fun shifting eye shadows?
-Have you tried any of Shiro’s products?
-What foods/drinks would you like to see converted to beer form? I would give my kingdom up to try one of those darn chocolate peanut butter beers I keep seeing on Instagram but can not find in my state! CURSES.
