I looovvvvveeee this palette in "Chocoholic." The colors are gorgeoussss. I needed a brown-toned eyeshadow palette and this one definitely more than fit the bill. A very good mix of wearable shimmery shades and mattes, the darker the better. I like that the pans start out being semi-light and they go from being shimmery in the middle to very dark if you wanted to create a smoky eye or swipe on for an easy bottom lash line color. I have the Maybelline Rock Nudes palette and the Nars "Wanted" palette. Maybelline products tend to be itchy on my skin, but I thought the "Rock Nudes" would be my "go to" palette...they have a beautiful dark blue that I can't find anywhere else but in that palette...the "Wanted" palette I love the colors of, but I can see myself reaching for the "Chocoholic" palette more. Instead of making some colors I wasn't going to ever use and then mixing them with colors that I would use on a daily basis, I'm glad that CoverGirl went back to their roots and made a very versatile palette of JUST BROWNS. There are so many color ranges in the drugstore that cater towards people with hazel, green, and blue eyes, but NONE WHATSOEVER for women with brown eyes? I was in CVS today, and I was talking with my Mom about, of all things, sanitary pads. Companies make larger packages of feminine products in "regular" flow sizes when women nowadays bleed heavier and need larger packages of "Overnight" pads. I saw one package today that was a "regular" flow (of thirty napkins) as opposed to "Overnight", which had ten pads? Or maybe sanitary napkin companies just assume that women are all "regular" flow bleeders? Anyway, I'm happy to see a fully BROWN palette. I can see that a lot of reviewers are complaining about the smell. When I did purchase this palette, there was a strong scent of chocolate, which was nice. I'm not sure if all of the palettes are designed with that scent, but it seriously doesn't bother me. It's great. I think these palettes launched somewhere around Valentine's Day, which would make sense.
