Mattese Elite’s Black Gold

I'm not sure how best to use this. I don't love lots of super-dark black eyeshadow combinations, it works as a liner but the gold isn't even, and while it looks fine as an accent…see my comment about not loving super-dark black eyeshadow looks. But it was a good deal!! And surely I'll find a use for it somehow. (Right????)

Extremely similar to BareMinerals' Black Gold, but with a much better color payoff and better adhesion.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches
