It’s all about classic smokey grays in the new Smoked Cocoa Eye Shadow X 4 quad from the MAC RiRi Hearts collection for fall.
If it weren’t for the packaging, I’d swear this palette was by Bobbi Brown!
RiRi Hearts MAC: Smoked Cocoa Eye Shadow X 4
- Houses four powder eyeshadows — a frosty whitish beige, a matte light gray, a sheer blackish gray with flecks of silver glitter and an uber-sheer matte blackish gray
- Fallout doesn’t appear as intense as it does in the Her Cocoa quad, although I find myself wanting more oomph from the two darkest colors, which are very, very sheer, and I have to really pile it on to get a good smokey effect on my NC42 skin.
- I tried wearing Smoked Cocoa on its own, but it looked odd without a transitional color… I think you really need a mid-toned brown like Cork, Wedge or Soft Brown to make it work.
I think this one’s more for the die-hard RiRi fans, since it’s fairly easy to dupe. Still pretty, though, if you don’t mind layering and adding in a brown eyeshadow (or two).
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Happy hump day!
