- angle brush
I really like the color, but goes on a lot darker than I thought. I use it to spruce up my brows and sometimes wet with an angle brush for a soft eye liner.
Pretty chocolatey shade. Very shimmery.
The eyeshadow itself is easy to work with; buildable, great results with finger. The looks of it in the pan are deceiving however, as you’d think it was dark murky purple. It’s a dark mud brown with a bit micro glitter and a good dose of pinkish/silver reflective shimmer.
Rave ahead: For me, Dark Chocolate is as good as eyeshadow gets! It’s -cruelty-free -gorgeous neutral medium grayish brown, with a smooth satin finish - generously pigmented, easily blendable, with an almost “creamy” feel - long-lasting, even on my super-oily skin(over a good primer like Shadow Insurance, it’s even better) I realize that not everyone is going to just about wet herself over a brown eyeshadow, but Dark Chocolate is so special, and it’s exactly the kind of neutral I crave, to play up my green eye color. Shades like this also pair well with the bright lip colors I favor. In this photo , I’m wearing Coastal Scents “Ashen,” another fantastic one, all over the lids, with Dark Chocolate in outer corners; no other makeup: https://tinyurl.com/yc6puyts Here’s (https://tinyurl.com/ybmmbb5h) a very good, thorough review of Dark Chocolate, though I can’t say that I quite agree with the “Satin Taupe dupe” assessment. To me, Satin Taupe is considerably lighter and browner than Dark Chocolate, which has a decidedly gray cast. At any rate, I consider Dark Chocolate a real “find,” and expect to use it often. I'm mildly annoyed by the fact that Hot Pods come in pan only, and empty single compacts are hard to find. I've discovered, though, that the round Coastal Scents shadows will fit into the square slots of the readily available Inglot palettes.
Decent pigmentation, but some fallout. Definitely darker than the picture!
It's a really beautiful, shimmery, burgundy brown. It's a little darker than the picture, but I prefer it that way. Really good color payoff and it's smooth to apply. Perfect shadow.
The pigmentation is good. The finish is also a cool unique mix between a matte and a satin. It's darker than I hope for though. I'll still use it, but it's just a darker brown.
This is not a chocolate -- it is a dark taupe/grey with slight plum shimmer. It is the sort of color that looks different depending on your skin tone. It is a really, really useful color on the lid, creating soft shadows and shaping without drawing too much attention to itself. The shadow itself is smooth and finely milled, neither buttery nor powdery. It is just slightly on the harder side, and it can take a little extra work to pick up pigment on your brush. On the lid the color is dark but not heavy, with a slight shimmer. It blends well into other colors, very useful in the crease and outer corner of the eye. This is a color that will be useful with lots of other shadows. I am especially liking it with raisin berry.
This is a lovely shade, very creamy and pigmented. A little dark for me to put on my entire lid, but perfect to anchor a lighter look or add a little depth to my outer corner. Looks great with Tyrian Purple...or probably any other shade! It's a great color to have in your palette.
I was pleasantly surprised when I got these they're great quality, price, and color! Definitely worth getting!
