I’m thinking that based on the name this color is in the brown family. To my eyes it seems more in the burgundy family, but I’m no expert. Au Chocolat is a classic simple beauty. Like most RBL colors this one applies easily and is opaque in two coats. I’m sure there are other brands out there with something similar but I love the RBL formula. These types of colors are no brainers for me. I always feel well polished when I’m wearing a color like this.
