For the longest time, I avoided black eyeliner. I was convinced it was too harsh for me and I lived for my long discontinued MAC Graphic Brown Fluidline. But when my Graphic Brown supply finally ran out I forced myself to go out of my comfort zone and experiment with new products and colors.

I now embrace black liner and when I wear another color, it seems too subtle. Go figure, right? So, as part of the latest Makeup Wars, I’m sharing the best black eyeliners in my stash with you.

I’ve been involved in the world of beauty blogging for longer than the 7+ years I’ve been writing All Lacquered Up. I started reading beauty blogs when I was an active member of Makeup Alley and 9 times out of 10, I still opt for reading blogs over books or magazines.
