Pretty colour, nice smooth blendable texture, lovely to work with. As others have said you can apply it thick for an intense brown and then you can easily sheer it out with a brush or finger for a quick and easy smokey eye. I don't like the longevity, I put this on of a morning, it's gone by lunchtime. I'm experimenting with powder to 'set' it/extend the longevity but.. It's an expensive product, $40 or thereabouts in Australia. I don't need products that don't last all day, especially from high end brands. I'm so unimpressed by the lack of longevity that I will not bother with any other caviar sticks.

This is absolutely holy grail status for me. Cocoa is a yellow-based dark brown, which means that it gives me the darkness and depth I'm looking for without making my dreaded under eye circles look worse. I've found that most, if not all, black eye shadows contain a blue based pigment which only exacerbate my dark shadows, but this caviar stick in cocoa absolutely doesn't- it really makes my eyes POP, and the colour is so intense and rich that I feel like I'm applying peat straight from the earth onto my lids. I can comfortably wear this on my waterline, (doesn't fade) on my lower lashline (makes my eyes look awake and alert) and with a pointed liner brush, also on my upper lash line as a liner (helps to thicken the appearance of my lashes) the overall effect is matte, but there is a very fine and hardly noticeable gold shimmer in the actual product which doesn't show up- on me at least. I really recommend this, particularly for ladies who are after intensity without being obvious about it- black liner just doesn't work on everyone, especially if you're very pale or have discolouration beneath or around your eyes. FWIW I'm also a contact lens wearer and this doesn't transfer to my lenses or irritate my eyes in anyway at all. Definitely recommend!

Love the color payoff! I really like the caviar sticks - so versatile. So soft and can pat or brush in place, then it doesn't budge. It's a dramatic, but neutral color. Can be dark, with just a swipe, or you can brush it out to make it more sheer. I like to soften it for day with Bobbi Brown stone cream eye shadow. For me, it just adds that something extra. I prefer Cocoa to the Khaki color, which I also have.

Cocoa is a neutral brown without any redtones, but it has a tendency to look muddy on my lids if worn alone. As a result, I use it as a eyeshadow base for a brown smoky eye using NARS Mekong and black gel liner. The formula of LM's caviar sticks is superb and long-lasting but Cocoa wasn't my favorite shade.

I carry this around me every where, it's great for the waterline as it lasts ALL DAY long! Be careful if you accidentally apply it on your under eye because it sets quickly and will be a pain to remove. That attests to how long it can stay. This was intended as a shadow stick which I have used when I needed to alter my day long into an evening one.

It's a dark brown with bronze flecks.

It's similar to Mac's eye kohl in Teddy but not a dupe.

I am just not reaching for this stick, because I would swear it kept pulling the redness of my eyes out.

Great brown e/s or e/l with gold shimmer...A beautiful neutral brown that isn't too red or too cool. These go on creamy, you have about 10 seconds before it sets and then they wear like iron. I either apply this as eyeliner with an eyeliner brush or apply it right from the tube and then blend for a quick smoky eye. I love brown with gold shimmer and this is the prettiest I've tried in awhile. I'm sure other companies have some perfect brown eyeshadows with gold flecks that are in powder form, but I love cream eyeshadows in general. This wears on me all day without creasing, I do have greasy eyelids and I wear UDPP no matter what is going on my eye. I've never tried it without primer but my understanding of the Caviar Sticks is that they are indeed, long wearing.

My favourite shade in this excellent range. For brunettes with a penchant for deep, smoky taupes, this is a must. Creates a sophisticated look with just a few swipes. To do this shade justice, though, you really do have to wear it 'full on' and on its own, balanced out with (nothing more than) a nude lip.
Oh, and be prepared for the compliments to follow!
