Licorice Stick is a gorgeous Gunmetal Gray that looks amazing over black eyeliner or shadow.
Here you can see I swatched the color over a primer & black eye shadow, white eyeliner, black eyeliner and by itself.
As you can see the black eye shadow gives the most dramatic look, which is perfect for a smoky eye! If you want a dramatic look with a little less glitter, apply it over your eyeliner only. It's still a gorgeous look! Applied over white eyeliner or even a lighter eye shadow like say a light gray will give it a brighter look. The least dramatic look would be applying it alone over nothing. While this look is still pretty, it will be the least dramatic. Darker colors in Eye Kandy look the best over a dark liner or shadow!
