Chocolate's Not Just for Dessert Anymore

Like it or not, Fall is approaching, and we're already getting a taste of the makeup that's going to be hot for the season.

In addition to the berry lips and liquid liner that I've been fawning over, I'm loving rich neutrals for fall. A perfect example is the new Chocolate Eye Palette from Bobbi Brown (which Carla at Product Girl is loving, too). This palette is the eye makeup equivalent of a box of sumptuous truffles - a little something for everyone, all delicious, and of course, rare. Of the 7 shades in Bobbi's new palette, 6 of them are limited-edition exclusives available only in the palette.

The mix of matte and shimmer shades in varying intensities makes it easy to create any look you like, from a casual daytime eye to a dramatic, smokey brown eye. You can use the dark shadows as liners and the Bone as a highlighter, with endless options in between. It's so versatile; and since bone, taupe and brown shadows should be a staple in everyone's makeup bag, why not go for the palette and keep them all in one place?

I need to get my hands on this ASAP. Writing this post has convinced me pretty quickly that this is a must-have for Fall - and I haven't even tried it yet. Fall Fever - does that exist?

$48. Available at and Bobbi Brown counters. Shades included:

  • Champagne Truffle (Shimmer Wash)
  • Caramel Toffee (Shimmer Wash)
  • Frappe
  • Cacao (Shimmer Wash)
  • Stone
  • Chocolate
