For darkening.. can you use other black shades also?
Besides the black made for darkening, I noticed there is a reddish black, a metallic black, etc. Has anyone used one of these other black shades for darkening? Did it turn out well? Did you like it better? Worse? I like to wear shimmer sometimes, so I was thinking of ordering the metallic black to have the best of both worlds - a darkening shade that can also add shimmer. If you can offer a comment or suggestion I would be very grateful! Thanks, friends.

I have tarred (regular black) and i love it will never need to get another dark red liptar again! If you want shimmer might as well pick up the metallic black.

The black OCC is too pigmented for me to use as a darkener. The very smallest possible amount, a pintip's worth, is still just too much. The metallic black shade is significantly more sheer, so if you're comfortable with the added shimmer (it will look lumpy mixed with a full-coverage lipstick!) this would be a good bet.
