Black Bow #5 has a softer black base with neutral-to-warm undertones paired with flecks of silver micro-sparkle. The texture was lightly creamy, denser but not too firm or stiff, so it wasn't difficult to pick up product, and the formula helped the sparkles to adhere better with the base color. There was still a bit of fallout during application as well as during wear, but a fair amount of sparkles made it through the day. It had opaque color coverage that wore well for eight hours before fading.
