Sweet As Cocoa is described as Brown with Pearl by MAC & falls under their Sheertone Shimmer formula which have an incredible smooth & soft texture with well merged minuscule shimmers lending healthy glowy sheen without going OTT. It has medium to buildable pigmentation giving enough flexibility to adapt the shade. The formula blends in extremely well with a superb wearability. Sheetone Shimmer is best formula to start with (in blushes ofcourse!) if you are just plunging into huge ocean of MAC Makeup.
SWEET AS COCOA looks scary dark coca in pan but comes out as a gorgeous Bronzy Brown with red undertones & heavily laced with golden shimmers. I went to check this & Raizin in store but Raizin was too dark for my NC42 skintone where it actually looked like a bronzer on me & then I was blown away by this beauty…. A perfect bronzy blush for NC40+ scale for a great sunkissed look. And it doubles up as a bronzer too for my skintone! Sweet As Cocoa wears for fabulous 8 hours on me as it’s a slight intense shade yet very wearable. A perfect shade for duskier beauties. And also if you are above NC45 scale do check out Raizin too.
The packaging is MAC’s signature black compact case with see through lid.
- Sleek, compact and easy to locate packaging.
- Extremely smooth & soft texture sans any powderiness.
- Shimmers are well integrated into the texture giving a healthy glow to the skin.
- Good medium to buildable pigmentation.
- Long wearing.
- A flattering bronzy brown for duskier skintones.
A beautiful shimmery Bronzy Brown for duskier beauties not to be missed out from MAC blush collection. It’s a sheertone shimmer formula which is my favourites from MAC because of the Dewey finish they impart with medium to buildable pigmentation gives flexibility to adapt the shades according to skin tones. Highly Recommended!
