Shiseido Black Sand (BK904) Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil Review, Photos, Swatches

There’s always room for one more black eyeliner!

Shiseido Black Sand (BK904) Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a really intense, smooth-applying black eyeliner with flecks of green and antique gold micro-shimmer. It’s really a stunning shade, and it’s definitely a color that appeals to my personal tastes. It formula is incredibly smooth and almost creamy, but it stays in place quite well. It doesn’t last more than an hour or two on my waterline, but it stays on my lash line just fine. The pencil itself is dual-ended with the eyeliner on one side and a smudging sponge on the other.

so i see you say it doesn’t stay in the waterline for too long, but does it raccoon when it wears away? theres only one liner i’ve found that wears away without raccooning and that’s guerlain’s terracotta kohl, and i LOVE it, but they say its limited edition so i’m afaid i won’t find another

Yup, reminds me of MAC Black Line the moment I saw the photo. But Black Line smudges on me while other Pearlglide liners don’t.

Wonder how would this one fare compared to Black Line?
