This has been in my treasure box of essentials for years – it’s actually quite hard to find now (I tracked it down HERE) as it isn’t a new product.
The way I use it is to wet the matte black and mix it with a brush to a tight-line consistency (tight-lining is where you line the inner rims of your eyes with a brush rather than the usual khol pencil) which is to a thicker rather than thinner paste consistency. Don’t make the mistake that I did of thinking the gunmetal will have the same effect – those teeny weeny shimmer shards are nice ON the eye, not IN the eye.
It’s a really strong dark kohl look – almost blacker than any pencil can produce and I find it stays longer as well. You absolutely need a flat edged brush for this – no other will do (try Crown White Taklon BK41 at £2.39). With the dark silver, pewter shade, I also use a flat edged brush to nudge it into the lash-line from the lid. If you love your eyes black and sultry, this is it. It’s not cheap at £31 but it’s virtually a lifetime’s supply.
