Oy. Tuesdays and Thursdays are bringing me down. Internship all day and class until 10pm. I’m trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel, because I’m almost done with grad school. Does the light have beer? I hope so. This post has beer, at least. We can start there, with a review of Brideport’s Bear Hug Cherry Chocolate Stout.
I also have an EOTD/BOTD of an easy cheesy work look you can do when you just want to sleep or possibly never wear makeup again. (It’s not been my top priority lately, TBH.) I used Hello Waffle’s Mendelssohn, but any pretty light pink shadow will do.
So let’s check it out. (See the period there? I’m too tired for exclamation points.)
EOTD: Hello Waffle’s Mendelssohn and Wet N Wild’s Comfort Zone
First things first: You must get your hands on Wet N’ Wild’s Comfort Zone Palette. If I had to live off one budget palette forever, I could easily survive on this one. It’s about $5, and you can do a ton of great looks with it.
Second: Mendelssohn is one of my favorite Hello Waffle colors, and I’m sure it’s even better now, because she’s reformulated many of her eye shadows to be more pigmented. That being said, you can sub in any light pink-rose gold eye shadow you have on hand. But it won’t have a cute cat.
And here is the eyeball.
Eyelid: Mendelssohn over GDE Glitter Primer
You just follow the directions on the left side of the Wet N’ Wild palette. I literally put the “Crease” color in my crease. “Brow” on my brow. “Definer” in the outer corner and lower lash line. I put absolutely no effort into figuring out where I wanted colors to do. Slap it on, and blend! It’s the perfect no brainer look when you would rather be sleeping!
Beer of the Day: Bridgeport Bear Hug Cherry Chocolate Stout I am well aware that it is 100+ degrees where I live right now, but I saw this Cherry Chocolate Stout, and I had to try it. I have no will power when it comes to delicious Stouts and Porters. Wheat Ales and IPAs mean nothing to me when I spy a good looking dark beer.
Unfortunately, the Bear Hug Stout just didn’t live up to my expectations. It poured almost completely black with just a little bit of head, and the first flavor I was hit with was bitter coffee. The after taste was sour to me, which Mr. Danger suspects may be the cherries. (I made him try it, too, because I was perplexed where the sour note was coming from.) So instead of a rich chocolatey beer with hints of fruit or sweetness from the cherries, it was mostly just bitter with a bit of a tart note. Not horrible, but kinda flat and boring to me. If you like coffee beers, this may work for you, but I was just underwhelmed.
Ah, well, maybe next time, BridgePort.
Good night, friends! Hope you are all having a good night!
