Cocoa is described as a "chocolate brown." It's a dark, yellow-toned brown with very fine bronze pearl, but it has more of a semi-matte finish applied. It had nice pigmentation in one stroke, and it went on evenly. With a deeper shade like this, the ability to blend it out is so important, and I had no issues blending and using it in the crease.
