Diamond Cosmetics Black Matte Shimmer /Matte Black Shimmer / Who knows what it's called? Mine doesn't have a label. I'll have to look in the box to see if it fell off in there or something. Anyway, after being sorely disappointed in Diamond's Fall/Winter matte collection, I didn't have super high hopes for this. Fortunately, this was much better than I expected! I love it when that happens. This is a plain mid-black with a little metallic effect when worn matte. Very similar to ManGlaze's The Death Tar, but not as matte.
With topcoat added it's way better! It's similar again to The Death Tar in that it has that tiny holographic/multicolored/rainbow shimmer that only appears with topcoat.
I guess this was some sort of limited edition one-off or something? I heard that there were very few bottles made. Which is weird, cause it's a great color, way better than their other mattes. I don't actually know the whole story on this one.
And, I need to make another off-topic tangent at the end here.... Cause the pile in my inbox and on my desktop are starting to make me panic...
I'm trying to resume posting/swatching as usual and I'm also trying (and failing) to keep up with my emails but I'm totally overwhelmed. I haven't been able to catch up on email since the last time I posted about it and it's making me feel really bad. I have tons of pictures of (formerly) new collections waiting to be uploaded and edited. Just wanted to let you know, cause I don't mean to leave you hanging if you're waiting for swatches or replies.
