MAC Black Water is a neutral-toned, dark black with a sparkle finish. It is an eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Black Water is described as a "black with gold pearl [with a Veluxe Pearl finish]." It's a muted, medium-dark black with fine gold shimmer over a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation, though the texture was a bit dense and firm in the pan, so it was harder to blend out on the skin as it would become uneven if I wasn't very, very careful and very, very patient. It started to fade after eight hours of wear. Too Faced Cookies and Cream (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). ColourPop Raven (LE, $6.00) is more shimmery, cooler (95% similar).
