They’re almost good enough to eat

Ah, Easter. A time when consuming your own body weight in chocolate becomes socially acceptable and, let’s face it, pretty much inevitable. 

With the supermarket shelves stacked high, it can be difficult to resist the temptation to indulge. 

And, while this isn’t to say we won’t be feasting on the odd Easter egg – or three, for us beauty buffs the allure of the sweet cosmetic landscape is just as, if not more, satisfying. 

A guilt-free treat, the beauty sphere offers the perfect way to mollify your sweet tooth without any of the calories. Plus, if you’re missing out on sugary delights altogether, it makes sense to indulge in other ways, right?

A beauty binge at Too Faced promises to please with a volley of cocoa inspired cosmetics. Our favourites though, are the Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Collection – a palette of 16 shades that smell just like confectionery – and the Cocoa Contour – a set of four sculpting and illuminating powders infused with coca powder and butter to smooth your skin and boost your mood.

If you really want to envelop yourself in the good stuff though, you’re going to want to head to Hotel Chocolat. Yes you read right, the British chocolatier has expanded into beauty to offer a heady cocoa-infused fragrance that’s almost good enough to eat.

But, if it’s a little R&R you’re after, look no further than Lush. From a chocolate lip scrub to bunny rabbit bubble bars and chick-themed bath bombs, the brand’s new collection guarantees that you’ll have an egg-cellent (sorry) Easter.
