My Favorite Black Eyeliners

I LOVE black eyeliner. I am always on the search for the darkest black which usually means a kohl liner. I have a few that I reach for almost every day. I just wanted to share them because everyone is on the search for the darkest black shade.

My three favorites are (from top to bottom): Stila Kohl Liner Pencil, Guerlain Terracotta Loose Powder Kohl Liner, MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Engraved. 

Stila: I was very annoyed with all my black eyeliners because none of them were dark enough. So I went to Sephora and asked the consultant for the blackest eyeliner they sold and she showed me this one. It's very soft so it's perfect for lining my waterline and upper lashline.  It can be smoked out with a smudger brush to create a quick smokey eye. It needs to be sharpened often because it's so soft but that's ok because the pigment is so dark.

Guerlain: This eye powder is the closest I have found to true Indian kohl that is available on mass market. This liner is great because I line my eyes in 2 seconds (great for mornings), I just slide it through my eye while it's closed and I'm done. It can't really be smoked out very much, but it's great for a perfectly lined eye. It's extremely dark and it makes my eyes pop.

MAC: This is my favorite mid priced liner. It's great for the beach or hot days because it's waterproof. It's not the darkest black out there, but it's pretty dark. I like it because it's a good simple eyeliner that stays put, has good pigment, is soft enough to apply on my waterline and can be applied as a regular liner around my eye as well.

So there they are. I love brown eyeliners too, I will have to pick my favorites for you guys!
