2. Jet Black: BK-S3 “May the force be with you”
Jet Black, this thing's color is. Sharp and cautious line you can draw, yes. The design, based on Master Yoda theme, with bright yellow color it is. Line, or line not. There is no try.

3. Soft Black: BK-S4 “Move Along...”
They may look strong and cruel, but surely these soldiers have some softness inside. Maybe that's why they miss so often. This is Soft Black eyeliner with a Stormtrooper theme, and it's definitely the shade you're looking for. The pens are decorated with a modern metallic color.

4. Covergirl Cosmetics

Want more? How about the Covergirl collaboration with Star Wars? Sure, it's an American brand, but who's splitting gundarks?

For example, you have Outlast Star Wars nail polish, Dark Side mascara for emphasizing thick eyelashes, Light Side waterproof mascara, and Coloricious lipstick with Star Wars inscribed on the cap.
