When I read that Kate was going to release a new Super Sharp liner in a true deep black shade I was very excited to try it out. When you read the reviews for the original Super Sharp liner many girls mention that the BK (black) shade is not dark enough for their taste. I personally have always been happy with the original black, I layer my eyeliner a few times usually anyway so it always was black enough for my taste =)
Anyway, since Super Sharp is my HG liner for long time already I had to get the new version and it's really great even though they changed a few things!
The new liner comes in a black pencil, not silver like the original version. Both the applicator brush as well as the pen itself are thicker than the original Super Sharp liner.
When I noticed the wider brush I was afraid that it won't draw a nice thin and precise line like the original liner. But when I tried it out I noticed that it applies the same.
And in my opinion the color is indeed black. To me honestly black is black, I can't really tell the difference between the original black layered twice and the new version applied once or twice. I think probably the new one is really darker but as I said I apply my liner at least in 2 layers anyway so for me it doesn't matter much :P
Super Sharp Liner in High Black retails for around 1000 Yen (a bit less than US$10) but can be found at about 20% off in Japanese drugstores. It's really affordable and worth every yen/cent =D It contains around 0.7ml (IIRC)
