EOTD/BOTD!

Hey friends!

Hope your week is going well! It’s Wednesday, so that means if it’s not going well-you only have two days left! You can make it!

Anyway, I think I’m going to start posting more eye looks on my Instagram account, @BeautyOnABeerBudget, hollaaaa, but I am internet shy, so it’s going to take some courage on my part. (Really! I didn’t get a Twitter account until 2014, so I am an internet grandma, basically.)

Anyway for now, I definitely feel more comfortable sharing my eyeballs in this medium so it’s Eye of the Day/Beer of the Day!

In Technicolor today! With more chocolate beers!

Read on!

6 Popular ColourPop Lippie Stix: Review

Hey friends!

My mommy is the coolest and picked up some ColourPop Lippie Stix for me for Christmas! (If you are just joining me, I’m in my late twenties, by the way. I just have a cool mommy.)

She grabbed some of their most popular shades in the Lippie Stix. (I do not like the word, lippie, but Colourpop gets a pass.) Since she’s also a budget-savvy lady, she bought 6 Lippie Stix for $30, (as their $5 each), and got the free shipping! A wise woman, indeed.

I’ve reviewed Colourpop’s Holiday Lipstick Collection, Forget the Fruitcake here, but this is my first time trying on their general shades. I was excited to test some of their best selling lipsticks!

Happy Hour: Favorite Drugstore Primer and Stone Smoked Vanilla Bean Porter

Hey friends!

I am having the best day. Mr. Danger and I watched Guardians of the Galaxy in our pajamas and had pizza for breakfast. Now our out-of-town friends are coming over tonight for more pizza and delicious beverages. (This is really all it takes to please me.)

We’ll be grabbing a few more beers to serve tonight, (which I’m sure I’ll be posting on Instagram, heyyyyooo @BeautyOnABeerBudget), but today’s Happy Hour features a tasty Winter one to get you through the weekend.

Plus, if you are anything like me, you got a bunch of makeup for Christmas. (You may or may not have also gotten a ton of glitter, that could just be me.) If you’re looking for a fabulous primer for your new eye shadows, I’ve got a great drugstore one for you!

So let’s start Happy Hour!

Indie Advent Calendar: Christmas Day Haul!

Hey friends!

I hope you’ve had a fantastic holiday! Mr. Danger and I had two awesome days with both sides of our families. We are super lucky to have families who we love and enjoy spending time with, and a good time was had by all!

For the final Indie Advent Calender day, Mr. Danger threw a bunch of bath products in a box, and it was such a nice little haul with Haus of Gloi, sixteen92, and Solstice Scents products. I am a very spoiled lady!

Let’s check it out!

Indie Advent Calendar: Christmas Eve-Solstice Scents

Hey friends!

I’m just going to be upfront, this is pretty much a teaser post. Please use your holiday spirit to forgive me!

We celebrate Christmas in the Danger Household, and we celebrate Christmas Eve with my family and Christmas Day with Mr. Danger’s family. Because of this when I opened my Indie Advent Calendar box for today, it was pretty cool, but I don’t have time to review it all until we get home from all the holiday fun in a few days!

However, I wanted to keep the calendar going, so I’m going to share what was in the box! I also sneaked a peek at tomorrow’s box, and it’s a nice haul, so stick around for the final day!

Indie Advent Calendar: Day 23-Performance Colors’ Paprika

Hey friends!

It’s Christmas Eve-Eve! Usually, we get together with friends on this day, but it’s pretty rainy and gross outside, so I think Mr. Danger and I will be staying in. Perhaps even cleaning our house that hasn’t been the same since thesis deadlines/the flu-plague overtook our lives.

I don’t know about you guys, but often I just put on lipstick to wear around the house. Even if I spend all day cleaning today, I’ll probably put on some lipstick. In my opinion, life is too short not to wear lipstick whenever you feel like it.

Thankfully my Indie Advent Calendar treat for today is Performance Colors’ Paprika lipstick, a lovely warm red shade. I’m wearing it right now to do laundry, and it’s lovely.

Check it out below!

Indie Advent Calendar: Day 22-Hello Waffle’s 23

Hey friends!

I got to sleep in late today and it was awesommeeeeee. Probably the best thing about being on vacation, in my opinion. I am not a morning person AT ALL.

In other news, we’re almost done with the Indie Advent Calendar! These last few days have been pretty and awesome and today I found my Holy Grail Rose Gold Eyeshadow. The one I have been searching for since March. It’s Hello Waffle’s 23, and it’s perfect.

Indie Advent Calendar: Day 21-Sugar&Spite’s Duran

Hey friends!

Is all your holiday shopping done? Or are you one of those people that gets an adrenaline rush from last minute shopping. I, personally avoid stores from Black Friday until New Years, unless it can be helped. Online shopping FTW.

Anyways, Mr. Danger and I got our shopping done early this year, as evidenced by this indie advent calendar. Today’s little treat is the last scent in Sugar and Spite Bathery’s Yule Collection, Doran. 

More on that perfume below!

(If you’re just joining the indie advent calendar, check out its origin story here.)

Indie Advent Calendar Day: 15- Sugar & Spite’s Solstice Perfume

Hey friends!

I can’t believe it’s Dec. 15th already. This month/year has really flown by for me! I’m hoping to take it slower now that my semester is over and The Thesis is turned in. Really stop and smell the indie perfume oil, and that kind of thing.

Today’s Indie Advent Calendar treat is another perfume from Sugar and Spite Bathery’s Yule Collection. Quick summary from my other post: loved their Halloween perfumes, and wanted to try the Yule Collection. Fast shipping, and no problems with my order at all. (You can read about these experiences here and here, if you need some more info on this company.)

Anyway let’s check out today’s scent, Solstice!
