MAC Eyeshadow in Swiss Chocolate: Review & Swatches


Hi All,

Here’s another neutral shadow must-have for you today..and what’s even more special is the fact that the name itself will make your mouth water…I know it did mine…I bought this eyeshadow and then proceeded to Hypermart to grab a Toblerone..THAT’s how much the name and the shade tempted me…

My take on MAC Eyeshadow in Swiss Chocolate:

  • Color: Swiss Chocolate is a muted reddish brown as described on the site and that’s exactly what this is…The reddish tone save this shade from being a boring run of the mill brown…

  • Pigmentation & Texture: This shade is very well pigmented and of a matte finish. It’s buttery to the touch and blends like a dream
  • Staying Power: This stays on my lids for about 5hrs and then starts to fade steadily.

I love this shade for the main reason that it’s not a boring brown…far from it in fact..the red tones in this save it from being another Espresso kinda shade and this looks good no matter how it’s used….as an all over lid color, as a crease shade…you name it, this shade does it!
