How’s your Sunday? I had big plans to wrap up my Oktoberfest month by actually attending an Oktoberfest, but then I decided it was probably better for me to sleep and relax for once in my life. Since I feel like a person again, I do not regret this decision.
So despite my lack of German celebrating, I bring you my final installment in Oktoberfest beers, straight from the OG of Texas Craft Breweries itself, Shiner or Spotezel Brewery’s Oktoberfest. I’m pairing it with ColourPop’s new Fall Blushes, because it’s basically Fall. Even if it’s 90 degrees outside.
So check it out!
Please enjoy your beer and makeup responsibly.
Makeup of the Week: ColourPop’s Matte Fall Blushes in Never Been Kissed and Cruel Intentions, $8 each.
I love the ColourPop blush formulas. I’ve been wearing two from the In Bloom Collection all summer, and pretty much ignoring all powder blushes. They go on very pigmented and take some blending out for sure, but the colors are vibrant and last ALL day on my skin. Which is truly amazing because I live in the most humid place in America. Seriously.
Anyway, when I saw there were two new gorgeous shades for fall, I jumped on that! (Actually, I made myself workout first. I’ve been rewarding my exercising with makeup recently. It’s very motivating.)
Never Been Kissed is a dusty coral and Cruel Intention is a warm rose, and I think they’re both lovely for Autumn. They are darker than the blushes I’ve been using but still blend out to a natural flush. The formula is the same silky smooth, super pigmented cream that I’m also used to.
I think they’re both nice colors for fall. Never Been Kissed looks a bit more like a natural flush on me.
I just used my finger to blend these colors out a lot, but I wanted to demonstrate that you can really sheer them out if you want to. Don’t be scared of the color!
Beer of the Week: Shiner/Spoetzel Brewery’s Oktoberfest
This is my last Octoberfest week! Next week, I’ll be moving on to the most wonderful time of the year Pumpkin Beer Month! Beer and pumpkin work together wayyyyy better than pumpkin and lattes. (I don’t like PSL. Sorry.)
Anyway for Octoberfest this week I felt I had a duty to feature Shiner’s Oktoberfest because:
1.) They’re the oldest brewery in Texas, and one of the oldest in the US.
2.) Shiner, TX was originally settled by German and Czech immigrants.
So basically, when it comes to Oktoberfest, they know what they’re talking about. The beer itself is one of the lighter, more malty and caramel of the Oktoberfests I’ve tried. It’s got a nice medium body and crisp taste, but I definitely picked up on some smooth, sweet notes. I didn’t really get much hops on this, it’s mostly just refreshing and light. I thought it was a delightful Oktoberfest offering, and I’ll probably grab some more for next year!
That’s it for today, friends! I hope you have a pretzel, beer, and some saurkraut and are enjoying an Oktoberfest near you. If that’s even a thing near you. If not, have a great Sunday!
