Chocolate Gold Face of the Day

I was trying to think of a name for this FotD, and all I could come up with was naming it based on the fact that I used the gold shade (named Creme Brulee) in the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette.

    from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
             --- Creme Brulee (shimmery gold) on the lid
             --- Amaretto (shimmery reddish brown) in the outer v and crease
             --- Milk Chocolate (matte tan) above the crease to blend out Amaretto
             --- White Chocolate (matte cream) under the brow to blend out Milk Chocolate
             --- Champagne Truffle (shimmery ivory) in the inner corner by the tear duct

I couldn't deal with my hair, so it had to go back in a headband and clip.  We all have those days, right?

We are still digging out from the snowstorm that hit Detroit on Sunday night.  Apparently, the storm dropped 16.7 inches of snow on the Detroit area (measured at Detroit Metro Airport), which is the third highest in recorded history.  I don't think we got that much out here in the 'burbs, but we got plenty.  (I measured it with a yardstick, and it looks like maybe 13 inches.)

Thanks for stopping by today!

  3. I think it's one of the prettiest shades in the palette. Thanks, Jennifer!

  4. Thanks, Tanya! Creme Brulee is a gorgeous gold and it applies like a dream.
