Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner in Black Gold | Smashbox Fall 2013 Fade To Black Collection

Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner in Black Gold ($22; Press Sample) is a limited edition shadow/liner from the Fade To Black 2013 Collection. Black Gold, is a shimmery, golden olive and a gorgeous color for fall. Its well pigmented, very rich and goes on smooth without tugging or pulling.

The shadow/liner comes with a smudger at one end, which is nice for a quick and easy look. I do prefer it as a liner or as a shadow base than as a shadow all over the lid. It dries and sets super quick, so there's not much time to blend the color out. It is very waterproof and needs a tough makeup remover to get off. I like to wear Black Gold along the lash lines and sometimes just upto the crease, slightly smudged and paired with some eyeliner & mascara - quick & easy! The blending needs to be quick or the color sets to a dry finish. Black Gold is also beautiful when used over a black/brown base. Since it is quite pigmented, it is easy to go overboard and that can end up looking too foiled, so be sure to be light handed, especially if you have dry lids.

What are your thoughts on the Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner in Black Gold?


  1. I absolutely loved the shade! its amazing!..any dupes in drugstore?

    1. Isn't it amazing? Looks great paired with brown in the crease.. From the Drugstore,the Prestige Total Intensity liner in Intense Olive is quite similar, but it has more green and less gold :)
