Black Oxide is a natural iron oxide which is flat, black and pure in hue. Stands alone as an accent color for any cosmetic or personal care product; also useful to deepen the tone of other colors.

If your just starting out and want to make darker colors or just want to be able to make some basic gray for a smokey eye, you'll need black.
For me, it's both, but if I had to choose, this. Yes, you will need to grind it, but for deepening shades for any facial application, this is your, "go-to black." This will give your colors matte tones, and depth, while helping you achieve a darker color, or making any shade of gray. You can always add sparkle, but this is a true, "must." and you can't beat TKB's price.
My favorite black that TKB sells,it's just a good basic black.
I love this black it truly is the blackest of blacks, nice matte tone as well.
I love this stuff for darkening other colors! It takes very little to add depth to other colors, but the problem I run into is that, on its own when I'm trying to use it for a pure black, it seems to crease pretty easily.
