  1. Love!! Review by Autumn

    I love this shade! It's so creamy and buttery.. if this shade was going to be discontinued, I'd buy a huge back stock of it. I love it that much. It's so perfect for so many different looks. Definitely can't go wrong with this color. Amazeballs. (Posted on 5/23/16)

  2. How can you not love this color and formulation! Review by Lauren

    The perfect warm brown for fair complexion. Adds warmth and undertone is easily able to match with other makeup shade colors.
    Game changer shadow. (Posted on 3/6/16)

  3. Must have in every makeup collection Review by Donna

    I have several Tarte e/s palettes.. I thought I had found a favorite.......Until MUG e/s came into my life. Every color is made with AMAZING quality!! I have so many Tarte colors but I find myself having to use the MUG e/s to blend out the Tarte e/s I use!!

    Cocoa Bear is a warm reddish brown. If you love to wear brown, BUY IT NOW! Even if you've never worn brown e/s, TRY IT!! You won't be disappointed! (Posted on 3/4/16)

  4. More of a burnt orange than a chocolate brown Review by Arani

    I thought I was buying a chocolate brown, however I was pleasantly surprised by this beautiful, muted, burnt orange shade! It's not incredibly pigmented but it is definitely smooth and buildable. Looks amazing in the crease for dark skin tones! (Posted on 3/4/16)

  5. Definite Re-purchase! Review by Sherrie

    Out of my initial order this shadow was the one I was most impressed with which surprised me. Looking at it I thought "Just another brown" but it applied so lovely and really gives you chocolate warmth without going too orange. A must have IMO and deserving of the hype it causes. (Posted on 3/4/16)

  6. Add this to your cart!!! Review by Maddie

    If you're looking for the perfect warm toned brown shade, you've come to the right place. Cocoa bear is so universally flattering. Blends beautifully. You need this eyeshadow! (Posted on 2/16/16)

  7. Where have you been all my life??? Review by Megan

    Oh my goodness YES GIVE IT TO ME. I purchased this one about two years ago and it applied patchy and stiffened up overtime, obviously making it almost impossible to apply, let alone blend. It irritated my skin too but I went out on a limb and figured maybe I just got a bad batch, so I reordered it. I received it today and oh my gosh...guys....literally feels like butter and blends so flipping easily. I can't believe it. I wasn't expecting my second Cocoa Bear to be THIS good. Not to mention oh god the color, lol I am getting winded thinking about it. It is amazing. Also makes blue eyes POP! Must have! (Posted on 1/2/16)

  8. Nice but not a favorite Review by Rikki

    Cocoa Bear is certainly a unique color, and true to MUG is easily blended. However, I actually like Barcelona Beach better. I have a lot of yellow undertones and for some reason this shadow just looks muddy on me. But that is personal preference - the shadow itself is high quality and I have no problems with it other than that. (Posted on 12/15/15)

  9. Hands Down Favorite MUG Shadow Review by Meghan

    Amazing pigmentation, use it daily. (Posted on 12/15/15)

  10. Amazing! Review by Jolyane

    A reason why I love makeup geek... Cocoa Bear! :) (Posted on 12/4/15)

  11. It's JUST right Review by Melodee

    The holy grail of eyeshadows- unique reddish brown, incredibly blendable, looks good on all eye colors/skin tones, is only $6, highly pigmented so I have yet to hit pan over a year later, and can be worn on fair skin in the outer v or all over the llid for a beautiful smoky eye which especially compliments blue eyes. We are not crazy, all 68 reviewers, buy this shadow now. You won't be sorry. Run, don't walk to your online shopping cart! (Posted on 11/10/15)

  12. LET IT BE THE FIRST SHADOW YOU GET! Review by jasmine

    Amazing ! pigmented beautifully and packaged nicely like the others. I adore it as a blending shade and have used it as a lid shade before. I get with the fuss is about , it is now my fave!..Also very dark girl friendly I love it ! (Posted on 10/25/15)

  13. I totally get what the fuss is all about now! Review by Chrisphilly

    I never understood how anyone could fuss over a brown matte eyeshadow, until I tried this color for myself. It's the most beautiful crease color, & I seriously wear it nearly every day, regardless of what type of look I'm doing. I know in the product swatch it looks like a super dark, opaque color, & you certainly can wear it that way, but you can also use just a little & blend it out so it works as a transition color-it's smooth enough that it won't get all patchy & weird if you use it that way. It of course looks amazing with other warm colors, but I also really love using it as a transition color in my upper crease to warm up a cooler toned look-it's very flattering used in that way. (Posted on 10/19/15)

  14. Sweet warm chocolate! Review by Moonfairy

    It stays where you put it, it doesn't dust off like many eyeshadows at this price, it's not a muddy brown, it is so smooth and pigmented, the colour is sweet, warm and it makes your complexion look like it blends with the warm colours of nature! Your eyes will fire up with this one! Such a simple colour, yet so capable of giving you that polished look that can smoothly transition to a more dramatic and sultry effect for those evenings out. (Posted on 10/15/15)

  15. Where has this shade been all my life? Review by Jennifer

    This is the most beautiful coco-warm-reddish brown I have ever used! How I have lived without this in my life for so long I don't know. Now I know why beauty bloggers use this shadow on an everyday basis, it's just beautiful. (Posted on 9/19/15)

  16. perfect Review by tatiana

    love this color in the crease paired with bitten. its a must have for everyone. (Posted on 8/17/15)

  18. Unusual colour that warms up and deepens any look! Review by Adi

    Cocoa bear has a great texture - smooth and easy to blend. Its deep warm colour deepens up any eye look and its warm hue compliments my blue eyes. I love it! (Posted on 6/13/15)

  19. Awesome Brown Review by Courtney

    I bought this recently along with creme brulee and frappe and it makes a beautiful matte natural brown eye. So pretty!!! (Posted on 6/10/15)

  20. The Sweetest Brown Review by boldfacebrows

    I absolutely love this brown. Love. It is SO silky and smooth. It blends like no other. If you buy no other shadow, buy this shadow. (Posted on 6/6/15)

  21. BEST MUG SHADOW EVER! Review by Zee

    This is by far the best MUG shadow in existence. It's so beautiful with its red undertones and can be used for daily/nightly looks with ease. (Posted on 5/24/15)

  22. Overall very good shade to have Review by Talia

    I love this to deepen up my outer v as I have paler skin. However be sure to apply a good eye cream or a sticky base if you have dry skin. I sometimes have dry patches on my lids and it doesn't stick quite as well in those areas. Not the eyeshadows fault, though. Very nice pigmentation and blends out easily. (Posted on 5/10/15)

  23. Beautiful Base/Crease color! Review by Estefania

    I found this color very subtle if applied in the right places. As I had mentioned in another review on the color "Bitten" These eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented and these were the first eyeshadows that I really invested money on and it didn't disappoint. I use this color to be inspired by the infamous Kylie Jenner look, and I just apply as the crease color and a creme brulee as the base and viola! you have the Kylie Jenner look! I am huge fan of matte colors, and these are the most matte I have ever gotten. Not a speck of spark in these eyeshadows, completely matte. I've known some companies that claim that they are matte colors but have a bit of shimmer and I grew to be disappointed by the internet, but truly, these eyeshadows do not lie. And I find these very worth buying. One light stroke of the eyeshadow with a brush is enough for one eye and I whatever is left on the brush to blend. Also, these are BLENDABLE 100%, It's does a really job in being flexible with other colors, beautifully. (Posted on 4/16/15)

  24. to die for!!!! Review by reem

    this eyeshadow is so gorgeous. its a very red warm dark brown, a must have in my humble opinion :) it works great as a crease color when doing warm smokey looks also it can work as a great warm color to pack on the v when working with lighter eye looks. (Posted on 3/6/15)

  25. Love Review by Amber

    This color will not disappoint. It is very pigmented. It goes on beautifully and you can pretty much use it with any other color you have! (Posted on 1/4/15)

  26. Fantastic! Review by Lucy

    Out of the 15 pans I bought this one is my favourite so far. It's much more amazing in person than it looks online. Gorgeous, warm, and crazy pigmented. (Posted on 12/30/14)

  27. So pigmented! Review by Nice

    I received this a couple weeks ago and im really loving it. its so pigmented and so easy to blend. it's almost creamy to the feel. love to use this to define my crease area! highly recommend! (Posted on 12/14/14)

  28. Gorgeous! Review by Kassidy

    I just received this in the mail today and I'm in LOVE! It's an extremely gorgeous color and soo pigmented! I highly recommend for any skin tone. It will be beautiful on anyone. So glad I purchased. (Posted on 11/9/14)

  29. My favorite crease color ♡ Review by Riss

    I received this color along with Cupcake, Mango Tango, and a Bliss blush pan from my boyfriend as a belated birthday gift. Out of those colors, this is my favorite color to use for defining my crease! I use it almost every day. I have ordered other colors like Latte and Unexpected before he sent them to me, but I still use Cocoa Bear the most! It's so pigmented, so a little goes a long way. Very buildable and easy to blend. Even if it fades a bit at the end of the day, it still has that warmth to define my crease. I've ordered 3 more colors yesterday, I'm so obsessed with MUG eyeshadows! (Posted on 9/27/14)

  30. LOVE at first SWIPE! Review by Celeste

    This is absolutely beautiful warm reddish brown colour. It's very pigmented and smooth. This just became my favourite brown crease color! (Posted on 9/3/14)

  32. Wonderful Eyeshadow Review by Ebony

    This eyeshadow blew me away. It's intensely pigmented and super creamy. You only have to tap the pan to get great colour payoff on the eyelid and requires hardly any work to blend. This eyeshadow is so fun to work with. It's one of my most frequently used shadows. It definitely earns it's place in every makeup collection. (Posted on 8/23/14)

  33. Love love this colour Review by Muna

    This colour reminds me of the earthy ochre pigment and I love it. I thought it was an overrated colour before I bought it but I am impressed. You must purchase!! (Posted on 7/9/14)

  36. Don't Hesitate Review by Hildy

    I had some doubts on this one, thinking this color would make my dark brown eyes look washed out. Nope, its a beautiful reddish brown shade that compliment so many looks. It looks lovely combined with chickadee, so beautiful. Well done MUG! (Posted on 7/1/14)

  37. The best!!! Review by Nadia

    I love this brown. I'm an NC50 is Mac and I find that I don't do any makeup looks without using this shadow. This is a must have for everyone. (Posted on 6/25/14)

  38. AHHHHHH Review by Megan

    I WISH I could LOVE this color, as it is a STUNNING shade of reddish brown! Oh it is so unique and wonderful to look at, and it looks amazing on my fair skin, i just wish it didn't irritate my eyes. I think I'm allergic to one of the ingredients, although the only thing that makes me question this theory is that I haven't had any other problems with their other eyeshadows, and I own 15 of them. I haven't looked into their ingredients so I don't know what's causing my reactions, but that is the ONLY reason I am unsatisfied with this eyeshadow. Aside from that, it is an amazing and beautiful shade, and it's one of the eye shadows I purchased that I was most excited about. I'm going to buy it again and give it another shot for sure because I think I just got a bad batch (Posted on 6/14/14)

  39. AMAZEBALLS Review by Vicky

    Gorgeous color!! (Posted on 5/23/14)

  40. Favorite eyeshadow ever Review by Catelin

    This is the holy grail for my crease line. I am obsessed with mac eyeshadows and bought this to try it out, you better believe it's in my mac palette now along side my other favorites. I am in love with this color! (Posted on 5/13/14)

  41. LOVE IT! Review by Oliviah

    I just got mine in the mail a couple days ago but I'm already in love with it. The color is PERFECT! I didn't expect it to be so pretty! I automatically fell in love with it... I will for sure repurchase this whenever I run out!
    It blends so good!! And I am a HUGE Mac girl.... And I like it better than my mac products. Words can't even describe how amazing this color is! (Posted on 5/6/14)

  42. hit pan!! Review by alyssa

    already need a replacement! The red in this is so unique and unlike any other shadow! The great thing is that it looks fantastic with my brown eyes ! You won't have buyers remorse with this one! (Posted on 3/27/14)

  43. Beautiful Brown Review by Rosalia

    Brown are not my favorites, my skin tone is brown with a hispanic background, that's the way it is. But this brown eyeshadow is superb! When a order this eyeshadow I said - well let's see what is all this buzz around cocoa bear eyeshadow from Makeup Geek. When I swacheted in my arm, I loved it, great for blending or use it alone. I recommend this brown shadow. You will love it too! (Posted on 3/27/14)

  44. Works with tons of looks Review by Teagan

    It is a very pretty reddish brown that warms up any look. It's rare that such a distinctive color not only works on so many different skin tone, but also works paired with many different. I'll blend just a bit to warm up any other eyeshadow combo. (Posted on 3/1/14)

  45. One of my all time favorites! Review by Jordan

    I love this eyeshadow. I don't think the pictures online do it justice. It's a beautiful warm reddish brown. It's my all time favorite; I use it practically every time I do my make up. Must have! (Posted on 2/28/14)

  46. Warm brown for everyone! Review by Smoochy

    I usually cannot wear reddish browns because I have very fair, cool-toned skin. Warm tones sometimes make me look sickly. But, with so many people raving about it, and the low price, I gave Cocoa Bear a shot. This is the first very warm brown that actually looks good on me. I can't think of a skin tone that this shade would not look gorgeous on. I love it. :) (Posted on 2/25/14)

  47. LOVE IT!! Review by Chrysanthia

    I absolutely LOVE this color. I have been looking for a great color that is a coppery-brown for a LONG TIME! I FINALLY found it! I actually just bought another one, seeing I go through make up so fast being a MUA. I love the formula and love that someone with sensitive kin, like myself, can wear this with no issues or problems. I am a forever customer!!! Thank you, Marlena!! I owe you one... =0) (Posted on 2/3/14)

  48. Beautiful & versatile Review by Doeremi

    I love this color. I usually put nearly naked on my lid, use cocoa in the crease & shimma shimma as highlight & inner eye. The color mixture is beautiful. (Posted on 1/10/14)

  49. Also one of my favs Review by Emily

    I personally think this is a very unique brown shade. Since it is an extremely warm brown it will make green/hazel eyes really pop. I love to use cocoa bear, chickadee, and beaches and cream, and vanilla bean together - throw on some liquid liner and you have a perfect vintage eye shadow look. All her shadows are very pigmented and blend well. (Posted on 12/18/13)

  50. WOW! Review by Trina

    I am new to Makeup Geek eye shadows and have to stay that these are the best for me by far. I took a chance and ordered quite a few the first and am glad that I did! I have a few MAC shadows but Makeup Geek is better. Blends well, great color and after a 12+ hour day, I'm not kidding you, no creases on my lid and the colors never faded, I didn't have to do any touch up work. I have been spreading the word out to all my friends about Makeup Geek! Thank you... (Posted on 10/24/13)

  51. Perfect Blending Color Review by julie

  52. Beautiful red brown Review by Katie

    I use this in my corner v to create a little depth and it was perfect. Paired it with Creme Brulee as transition. (Posted on 10/7/13)

  53. My Favorite Color Review by Chrysta

    I love this color so much!! It just came in the mail yesterday tried it on instantly and it is so pigmented, smooth, and rich! I am obsessed. It brings out my brown eyes. It is easy to work with and inexpensive which is a BIG plus for me. My complexion is kind of tan and I think it looks perfect. Thank you Makeup Geek! (Posted on 9/8/13)

  54. Adore it Review by Gina

    I use this color everyday and it was one of the first eye shadows I ordered from makeupgeek because I heard such good things about it. I love love love this for definition in my crease. It's so smooth! (Posted on 8/26/13)

  55. Love it! Review by Amy

    I admit I was afraid this was a little red for my pale complexion. But the reviews were so compelling I decided to take a chance. So glad I did! It is not too red, even on someone who is as fair as I am. Highly recommend, beautiful for blending. This was my first order, but now I need to order more because the colors and pigmentation are fantastic. Happy customer! (Posted on 8/2/13)

  56. Beautiful Color Review by Delila

    I love this color, it is so beautiful, perfect color for the crease. I also purchased creme brule. I will be purchasing more colors as well. Easy to work with and pigmented. What I like the most it's so affordable! Great job Marlena! (Posted on 7/24/13)

  57. Perfect Color Review by Elizabeth

    Cocoa Bear is a shadow that everyone should have in their collection. Everyone could use a shadow like this. This can be used in the crease, on the lid, or the outer V. It's very versatile and very blend-able. This shadow is definitely one of my MUG favorites. (Posted on 7/9/13)

  58. love this shadow! Review by Kerry

    This is exactly the color I wanted. It's a nice reddish brown, but it applies and blends like a dream! I just put in an order for 3 more shadows. I love your shadows Marlena, you have a new faithful customer (and I am telling everyone!). And so affordable!! (Posted on 6/9/13)

  59. Very beautiful Review by Maxi

    I just got my order and this was one of the shadows I bought. It doesn't seem as pigmented as the others, but it's very buildable and I think the lack of pigmentation has more to do with the thatching texture being a bit coarser on this pan. Anyways, it's absolutely beautiful. The closest color to this I could find in my kit was Swiss Chocolate by MAC. But this one is frankly much prettier, a bit redder. and more blendable. Excellent work on this color. Will be using often. (Posted on 5/21/13)

  60. Great Color! Review by ShawnTina

    MAC's Saddle use to be my go to crease color - that was before Cocoa Bear, what a great color! I use it on the edge of my crease for definition. It's a wonderful rich warm brown on my NC45 complexion without looking muddy or lost on my deep complexion. (Posted on 5/5/13)

  61. WOW Review by LeeArmani

    Love this colour, very pigmented, smooth and velvety. Well worth the wait to the UK. So glad I ordered this! No regrets. (Posted on 11/22/12)

  62. Friggin gorgeous color! Review by Sasnuhy

    Honestly, I havent seen nething like this color, reddish brownish burgundyish orangeish - too unique if u ask me! texture-amazing, pigmentation-super, love how it's matte, so far ive only used it as lid color, the last c omment i agree with Marlena stating how to use it for some looks-highly requested!
    but i do wana point out smth, yesterday i used it as a lid color n of course applied primer beforehand, but about 7 hrs later i started to notice creasing, this has never happened to me before with a day of prior on my eyes...i wana assume i hadn t applied da primer properly...:) cheers! (Posted on 10/11/12)

  63. Unique color Review by Lara

    This one is very unique, I am wanting to love it, but having trouble knowing how to wear it. Please do some tutorials with this one to give me some ideas! For me, it is too dark for the lid, but a little too light for outer v, and when I darken it with another shadow, the unique color kind of gets lost. I'm still working on it though. Love the quality/texture! (Posted on 9/28/12)

  64. wow indeed !! Review by Marie-Joële

    This is a great colour for blue eyes... makes mine pop ! I'm really happy it's a matte as well... totally a fan of this shade ! (Posted on 8/24/12)

  67. Beautiful warm brown Review by Alice

    This is a beautiful reddish warm brown that goes well in the crease, outer V or all over the lid. It instantly adds a bit of warmth to your look, and it's so easy to blend! (Posted on 4/16/12)

  68. Wow! Review by Kristy

  70. LOVE! Review by Sunkissed364

    I received my order a couple days ago and I love this color! I don't have a color like it. It's like a reddish brown. The swatches in the pictures are true to the real color of it. Great quality! (Posted on 3/4/12)

  71. HUMMMM Review by Pink Star

    Reminds me of a teddy bear for some reason. it is kinda a brown reddish clay color. unique. i did not think i would like it when i ordered it, but, now after using it a couple times i really like it. it's different. (Posted on 2/29/12)

  72. Amazing color Review by JJ

    Love this color it is so pretty and I have nothing like it in my collection. You have done so well with all of these shadows I plan on buying them all. I don't think I will be spending so much money on expensive Mac shadows that really are not worth the price they are sold for. Also I have never seen such fast international shipping at such a low cost. All of my orders have literally only taken a week to get to Australia and I am so impressed that I haven't had to pay more money on postage then I have on the shadows themselves. (Posted on 1/28/12)

  73. So Good I Can't Bear It Review by Leslie

    What do you get when you combine all Golilocks 3 bears? This wonderful eyeshadow. I have used it for a soft day smokey eye and added more for a great night look. (Posted on 1/26/12)

  74. Unique color Review by Traci

    I have tons of eyeshadows but nothing else quite like this color. I use it to create a semi-natural look for work. I start with a skintone color as base, a peachy crease color and then Cocoa Bear on the outer V and blended into the crease. The color is just deep enough to make your eyes pop, and it's wonderfully pigmented like all the other MUG colors I've tried. (Posted on 1/14/12)

  75. Unusual Review by Susen

    I'm SO happy I ordered this colour. It's a really unique shade - and it's matte!!! It's such a warm brown with just the right hint of coppery red. The colour payoff is really good, it goes on easily, blends beautifully and lasts all day.

    I love wearing this with a light green on my lid, Cocoa Bear in the crease and a dark brown in the outer V. Makes my brown eyes pop! (Posted on 1/14/12)

  76. Great color for blue eyes! Review by Stephanie86NL

    I'm always on the lookout for rusty brown colors to enhance my blue eyes. This is such a unique color! I didn't own anything like it. The pigmentation is amazing and I love that its matte. (Posted on 1/11/12)

  77. Good for Auburn Brows Review by Deana

    I color my hair red and was in need of eyeshadow colors for red hair. Cocoa bear is the perfect color to do my brows with! It makes my brows look like my hair-auburn! (Posted on 1/5/12)

  78. Fabulous! Review by savvychic88

    I really love how unique this color is, almost like the color of rust and unlike any other colors in my collection. The rich pigmentation and creamy smoothness of this shadow makes my eyelids purr with happiness! (Posted on 12/22/11)
