How was your weekend? I’m gearing up for another busy, (but awesome), week at the new job!
I’ve got two more summer beers to share before I start to move into cooler, fall weather beers and makeup. So for today’s Sunday Funday Happy Hour, we’re checking out Great Juju by Left Hand Brewing Company! On the makeup end I’ve got my all-time favorite primer, Urban Decay’s Primer Potion-plus it’s much cheaper dupe, NYX’s HD Primer!
Check it out!
Makeup of the Week:Urban Decay’s Primer Potion, $22
I feel like there’s a lot of different opinions on the best primer, but for me personally, I stand by UDPP. While I do think Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance makes eye shadow last a bit longer, UDPP really makes colors pop on my eyelid. And to me, that’s worth the big bucks.
NYX HD is a much cheaper primer, that I feel is very similair to UDPP with the one exception of it doesn’t last as long on my eyelids. Which is why I pay extra for the UDPP, but if you’re looking for something much cheaper NYX might work. Because other than that, the NYX formula looks and feels pretty similar to the more expensive Urban Decay one.
You can see the NYX is a bit creamier than the UDPP, which is why I think UDPP lasts longer. It’s got a stickier base for making shadows pop and hangout, even on my oily eyelids. (My eyelids have issues, you guys.)
Beer of the Week: Left Hand Brewing Company’s Great JuJu
I like Good JuJu, and it turns out I also like Great JuJu. And the word JuJu. It just sounds fun.
I don’t have too much to say about this beer other than you have to love IPAs and ginger to enjoy it. It just tastes like someone dumped a ton of ginger into an IPA. It’s fizzy, tart and refreshing. I personally think it’s great for an end of summer beer and I’m in ginger heaven, but I’m a huge fan of that flavor. Sooooo, that being said, you really have to fit my two prerequisites mentioned above to enjoy this beer.
But the color is pretty.
Enjoy the rest of your week, friends! I hope to have a last minute Sixteen92 perfume review up tomorrow morning before the Fall collection goes live-but we’ll see if I can stay awake past 8 or not!
