The BEST Black Eyeshadow? Saucebox Cosmetics Black Widow Eyeshadow

For the past few months, I have heard lots of things about this specific eyeshadow. Among them is that it’s the BEST black eyeshadow money can buy. Super dark, super pigmented and super easy to blend. When I saw that Saucebox was going to be at IMATS LA this year, I made sure to put their booth on my list of vendors to check out! I’m glad I stopped by when I did, because this was the last of this shadow they had left, and I would have been bummed if I didn’t get to see what all the hype was about.

Here is a super quick application of this shadow. All I used is UDPP as a base, and then applied the shadow with an eyeshadow brush and blended it out with a blending brush.


I did notice that the black is definitely buildable, so it won’t start off overly pigmented. I think this is a good thing, because it’s easier to build up pigmentation than take it away. 
Something else worth mentioning is the fallout issue. Black eyeshadow is pretty notorious for being a problem when it comes to fallout, and this one isn’t an exception. Make sure if you decide to get this, that you use it before applying face makeup so you don’t have to worry about reapplying.

Overall I think this is a nicely pigmented black, and has a nice buildable opacity, but it didn’t wow me to be honest. It can be hard to come by a good black shadow, and I think this one fits that criteria, but I guess the hype had me expecting something to blow me away, and this just didn’t make me feel that way. 

This shadow is available from Saucebox for $10 (which is cheaper than it was at IMATS!)

    The best black eyeshadow I’ve ever used was from bed head. So buttery matte, pigmented, and perfect. Have you ever used it Leesha?

    my favorite black eyeshadow was from the UD Black Palette. It was called Black Dog. Have you ever tried that?

    How does it stack up to Sugarpill’s Bulletproof? My Google-fu must be failing me, because I can’t seem to find any direct comparisons of them.

    The best matte black that I can think of is by makeup geek and it’s called corrupt. It’s a very pigmented, bold black. I’ve never used it myself, but I’ve heard other people talk about it.

    It looks like every other black I’ve seen on the market.
