Performance– Everything positive I had to say about the blackberry mascara also applies to the dark chocolate mascara, which might make the fact that I’m even posting a review seem silly. However, there is one big difference: the shade (obviously). The dark chocolate mascara is much more subtle, and will likely be my go-to daytime mascara. I was worried that it might look out of place with a tiny bit of black eyeliner, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover just the opposite.
Here’s a peek of me wearing it (sporting an unintentional bitch face):
Scent– Unlike the blackberry mascara, this stuff doesn’t smells like berries. It reminds me a of a combination of clay, chocolate, and coffee.
Rating– 9/10. I subtracted one point for the one possible questionable ingredient.
Would I purchase this item again? Yep!
