7 Blackest Black Makeup Products

If they make a shade darker than black, let me know

When it comes to makeup, there’s nothing worse than going home with a new eyeliner or shadow and putting it on to reveal a sheer gray rather than the opaque black you were expecting. Ladies, we don’t have time for that kind of makeup product. Speaking personally, when I go makeup shopping, I’m not looking for a subtle wash of color from my eyeliner or eyeshadow. On the contrary, I want something highly pigmented and if it’s labeled as black, it better deliver on that promise.

There can be challenges when making a product that’s both pigmented and easy to apply. However, many brands have adapted and there are more products that can live up to the phrase “blackest black” than ever before. Take a look at 7 of our favorite highly pigmented black makeup products and let us know your thoughts on this list in the comments section on social media.
