On me (I'm Indian, match NC 40, and have pigmented lips) NYX Chocolate is the exact colour of the fleshy centre of my bottom lip. The rest of my lips have always been darkly pigmented, which has made me prefer opaque lip colours. Chocolate is not just opaque but healthy-looking as well. For a natural look, I don;t even fill in the entire lips, just the top and the corners of the bottom one, and I wear gloss over it so it looks like I've never had discoloured lips at all. So, yes. I like Chocolate and I hope to find a back-up. I only wish it weren't in a jumbo pencil man, but those are a pain to sharpen!
