Damsel is described as a “blackish brown”.
This is accurate, methinks.
It’s a deep bittersweet chocolate brown with a matte finish.
I’m generally a fan of the Smudge Sticks. Damsel is not as dark as I’d love it to be on me, but it’s a great alternative to black for my work days (I don’t want a very dramatic makeup look when I’m at the office).
If you’re my complexion or lighter, check this out. I’m still going to buy Bobbi Brown Gel liner in Caviar because I want that true black-brown eyeliner shade. In the meantime I’ll use this up.
