MAC’S BLACKEST BLACK
I was looking for a black eyeshadow, specifically, the blackest of the black. I did my research and read that this had fit my criteria. Without hesitation, I had popped into my nearest counter to get this without swatching it in store. Big mistake. I am so disappointed. This doesn’t come close to being blackest black no matter how much I layer it. It’s just a basic black eyeshadow. It’s great for those who don’t want it too black. The above swatch is only one swipe. There’s no intensity.
Due to the matte formula, I had found it hard to use. Even though it is soft, when applied, it was patchy, not very pigmented and difficult to blend. When it does blend out, it loses its colour. It is a buildable shade but hard to work with. Even after many layers, it’s still not as black as I hoped for, as I would describe it as a chalky, grey black. I have applied it over an eyeshadow primer and it still didn’t help. It’s not too bad when it’s applied over dark bases since you won’t be able to see the patchiness.
The first time I’ve used this was on the eyelid only on a night out. It lasted all night. That’s the only good point I could say. Beware that this does have some fallout. I wouldn’t purchase this again. I’ll probably sell this as it’s been sat in my drawers and has only been used once. The hunt for the blackest black continues.
If you want a less intense black, this would be the one for you.
