Estee Lauder Blackened Black Pure Color Intense Kajal Eyeliner

Estee Lauder Blackened Black Pure Color Intense Kajal Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a rich black with a mostly matte finish. It has excellent color payoff in a single stroke. I love how creamy this formula is; it glides on easily, evenly, and delivers full color without having to go back and forth. Despite the creamy consistency, it stays put–it doesn’t smudge, budge, or migrate on the lash line during the day. It doesn’t wear quite as well on the lower water line, but it did hang on for five to six hours.

This deep of a black is not impossible to find, but not every brand makes it. Some notable shades that are going to be similar in depth would be MAC Black Black and Urban Decay Perversion.

Blackened Black

A+
Blackened Black is a great choice for a rich, intense black eyeliner. The application is really lovely--soft, smooth, and easy to apply without tugging or pulling on the lash line.

    Hey congratulations, I was reading the latest issue of Allure and you are mentioned as the site to go to :) I’m sure we all agree:)!

    I have this eyeliner. I do like it but it does migrate a little bit on my lower lashline. I have a watery eye though.

  3. I’m always on the lookout for another black kajal pencil! :)

    Well,isn’t that an original name,like mac’s black black:) I have black black among many other black pencils but I am looking for something that can be smudged easily for basic quick smokey effect,Mac kohls work in this way but don’t last on my oily eyelids,I am curious to find out how this one would work.

  5. I will be trying this one. I’m in need of a super black liner and I am allergic to Perversion. :(

    A novice here: how does this compare to the LancĂ´me basic eyeliner?

    I LOVE these pencils! By far my favourite eyeliners.

    To be honest, I’m a bit tempted to buy this product because of your review, Christine! *lol* :D

    I’m not a big fan of kajal/kohl liner because every products I’ve tried smudge sooooooo badly on my very oily lids & watery eyes (perfect combo, huh? :/).

    • Aww! :)

      Have any regular eyeliners worked for you? I could see oily lids and watery eyes being a recipe for disaster with a lot of eyeliners!

      I commiserate with you on the finicky/watery eyes eyes. :( I don’t have oily lids, but my eyes are very deep set and structured. I have to be very careful how I wing out eyeliner because the shape of my eye will actually cause it to crease and smudge if I line it too close to the indentation. I just flat out gave up on finding anything that stays on my waterline or bottom lash line without smudging – if I do a look with either, I just accept that it’s going to be a high maintenance look and have to spot check/fix the smudging every other hour.

        I have the same problem w/ watery eyes and the only thing I’ve found that actually last on my water line is the l’oreal h.i.p. kohl pigment liners. I don’t think they are sold anymore but perhaps something similar would work for you too? The only other thing thats safe to put on my waterline is a white one from smashbox. Forget about UD and Nars. Haven’t tried any others b/c I’m afraid of investing more $ only to be disappointed. Nice to know that I’m notthe only one with this problem though. Good luck!

    Why does the packaging never get a full 5? What can be wrong with a pencil? o_O
