The initial item that stole my heart was the Rich Chocolate eye shadow palette (£39.50) - 7 varying chocolately brown shades housed in a slim brown mirrored palette, with a superb double ended eyeshadow and eyeliner brush included.
There are five matt shades, one Sparkle Eyeshadow and one Shimmer Wash. Bone is very light but great for creating a base or to add a little lighter tone to the inner corner of the eye. Stone, Frappe and Cocoa are gorgeous chocolate shades, with Rich Cocoa being perfect for the outer corner or a full on smokey eye. Caramel Sparkle adds definition to the eye, and Champagne Truffle is a truly beautiful gold.
The lipsticks in the collection are Baby Pink and Berry (£19 each) - both gorgeous classic shades and perfect for this season. They compliment the brown eyeshadows perfectly and have a slightly orangey taste to them that takes me back to my childhood. I love the way that the lipsticks are shaped - making them super-easy to apply to your lips.
I also have the Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner (£17.50) from the collection in Dark Chocolate Ink, which is a very dark brown and a nice alternative to black gel liner. It's so dark it's almost black, but takes some harshness away for a softer look. The Extreme Party Mascara (£19) in Black Chocolate, again is really dark but softer than wearing black - and a really pretty shade on the eyes.
I have created a couple of looks to show how soft or bold these new products can be, depending on the occasion or what floats your personal boat!
For this look I applied the Cream Shadow Stick in Bittersweet all over my lid, up to my crease, then blended the edges with a fluffy brush, then added some Frappe shadow at the edges to blend the colour out even more. I patted on some Caramel Sparkle to the lid, then using Rich Chocolate along the lash line with an eyeshadow brush to softly line the eyes. I also used the Cream Shadow Stick under my eyes and blended out, then finished with the Extreme Party Mascara. To complete the look I used a tiny bit of Berry blush (see what I mean about how pigmented it it!?) on my cheeks, and Berry lipstick on my lips.
I think this collection is absolutely gorgeous for Autumn and will definitely be getting a lot of use from me. What do you think of the Rich Chocolate collection?
