MAC Smoked Cocoa #3 is a moderately cool-toned, medium-dark black with a satin finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Smoked Cocoa #3 is described as a "black with silver pearl [with a Lustre finish]." It is a darkened matte black base with fine silver sparkle and shimmer. This could be a number of eyeshadows, and it could very well be Black Tied as it was originally listed as, since Black Tied is essentially a matte black base with silver sparkle. If it's any consolation, my permanent pan of Black Tied is even worse. The quality of this shade was horrendous; it was dry, patchy, and incredibly sheer. It was a total pain to apply and blend out on the lid. It seemed faded after seven hours. There are so many of these types of shades on the market, and the main way they differ is that some are more pigmented than others. See comparison swatches.
