Engraved is described as a "rich black." It's a medium-dark black with a matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff in one stroke, and it wore well for eight hours before fading slightly on the lower lash line for me. It's part of the permanent range. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
Waterproof. Longwearing. Metallic, shimmer and matte finishes. Smooth to apply. Won't transfer, smudge, or budge... Draws the line: powers your eyes. Makes its point. Lasts.
