I have one by Lancome that's nice, but you don't really see the glitter until you're really up close. I want something more sparkly than that.. but at the same time, I don't want it to look like I've got sequins on my eyes, obviously. Anyone know a happy medium? Or if not black, a midnight blue or dark purple?
Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.
I was thinking Urban Decay too. They make good stuff for edgier looks and the pigments are pretty strong (and it's cheap!). I was gonna say mix something too if you don't find enough sparkle. I would use MAC eyeshadow in carbon as the color. You can actually color your eyelid in with black khol eyeliner first to make it stick and be more opaque and blend that together with a concealer brush.
Then once you have the black color you want add glitter. I also like Urban Decay heavy metal eye glitter in bootlegged. It's a bluish silver. Backstage is more true silver if you want that...
Good things come to those who shop.
Seriously, I swear they have literally every colour of the universe with their colour ranges. You will most definetely find the best black glittery eyeshadow with Mac. You see, Mac have amazing ranges of colours and they are so richly pigmented so you can soften or intensify the colour.
The NARS Night Series is my staple black eyeshadow go-to! Off the top of my head:
Night Clubbing - black with gold glitter
Night Flight - black with blue glitter
Night Fever - black with red glitter
Night Breed - black with silver glitter
