They had a display of the "best of the best" black eyeliners-
so I thought I'd give them an "in-store beauty test drive"....
This is how they ranked and who won, please note #1. is not the winner, but #2!
1. Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner - came off the easiest. Although I like the idea it did not pack the pigment punch of the other guys!
2. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Liner in Perversion- I own this already and can attest to the pigment punch this baby packs! After scrubbing my hand in Sephora with a tissue- this was the only eyeliner that stayed in place- they should've called it "Urban Decay Tattoo Eye Liner"! This stuff is awesome!
3. Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour Pencil- though it's not technically an eye liner, it was there in the options so I gave it a whirl- didn't last past the tissue swipe, and didn't have too much pigment. But it might be a base color option perhaps. I would just use an eyeliner as a base.
4. Givenchy Kajal Eye Pencil- I thought, with a fancy name like Givenchy has, this would be the eye liner bomb, but Urban Decay beat Givenchy hands down!
The Givenchy was the darkest after the UD Perversion Pencil, but it was real shiny when it was applies- where the Urban Decay was more matte. And the Givenchy was wiped right off like the rest!
Our Sephora Beauty Test Drive Winner- for BEST, BLACKEST EYELINER was hands down:
the URBAN DECAY 24/7 Eye Liner in PERVERSION!
let me know what you think?
do you like the SEPHORA BEAUTY TEST DRIVE?
PS. Perversion is even darker than Smolder from MAC, which I've loved for years! The only other black which comes close is Feline from MAC, but it isn't in the permanent MAC collection. I should've known who the winner was gonna be....
The Amazing Beauty Reviewer, Temptalia has an awesome review of black eyeliners-
