Mmmm Ganache Face of the Day

I finally tore myself away from the Urban Decay Vice 3 palette.  I used the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette instead.

My bangs would not cooperate.

Eyes: from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
                 --- Gilded Ganache (sparkly brown with a hint of olive green) on the moving lid
                 --- a mix of Salted Caramel (warm tan) and Milk Chocolate (brown) in the crease
                 --- White Chocolate (ivory) under the brow

         It Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Black Brown on the waterlines

Cheeks: Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Peach Beach

Lips: NYX Retractable Lip Liner in Nude Pink

I'm really enjoying the Peach Beach blush.  Gah.  So pretty.

(I think I put a gloss over the top of the liner, but I can't remember -- I'm writing this post a couple days after I did this makeup and I didn't write it down.  Booooo.)

The name "Gilded Ganache" makes me think of a cooking show I watched years ago.  It was not a competition show or one involving a celebrity chef, it was simply chefs from the best restaurants around the world making their favorite dishes.  The chefs didn't even do the talking to describe what they were doing, and instead there was a narrator.  They often made ganache to use in the deserts they created.

Have a wonderful day, friends!  I'm off to have some chocolate.  I wish I could say it involved some ganache, but it's only some dark chocolate Hershey's Kisses.


  1. Hershey's Kisses are GOOD! I have a big bag in my drawer at work! :D Beautiful makeup look! Now I'm inspired to use my Chocolate Bar palette again. :)

  2. Loving the brown smokey eye!

  3. Ah, the Chocolate Bar is one of my favourite palettes and you wear the shades so well! All the shade names make me hungry too :)

  4. I kind of wish I could just smell the palette and would satisfy my chocolate cravings, but it usually just makes me want more. :)
