To start, I love love love this mascara. I reviewed the straight Black version a few months back and couldn’t rave enough. Great formula, great brush, great lashes, great staying power. So I was anxious to try one of their colored versions. The options were Black Brown, Blue Black and Black Gold. Because I love anything gold (jewelry, shoes, bags) I went for the Black Gold version.
While the payoff of the formula is the same, I did find a nice hint of glimmer with the addition of the gold pigment. While the product looks almost green on the brush, it looks bright and dimensional on the lashes. It’s not extremely noticeable, but it gives the lashes almost a wet finish.
While there wasn’t a major COLOR difference, the dial-up of the volume of black was great. I’d buy this baby for a new play of the LBM (Little Black Mascara!)
