  1. I think the Physician Formula’s mascaras are pretty black =)

    L’Oreal Voluminious Carbon Black

    Make Up For Ever SMOKY LASH for sure. It has no grey in it at all, a true black.

    that’s an easy one: Armani’s Eyes to Kill! I’m sure it’s a rather black mascara in general (one of your posts from yesterday revieled that it has quite a fanbase), but it’s the only black mascara I use, so there’s really no competition there for me. I’m very pale and have big eyes, so I rather get brown (covergirl lashblast – my every-day mascara for summer), dark navy and dark purple (both Exceptionell de Chanel – you’re not the only one loving those Christine!!). I’d happily purchase a grey mascara too!

      I totally second this!Love how it stands up to my constantly tearing , allergy eyes. I have black hair and lashes and this darkens them even further.

    The MAC Opulash Black seems to be the blackest i have found so far

    — The most blackest, but not the best mascara – this is for me:
    Dior Iconic!

    I’m really enjoying MAC opulash black. I bought it on a whim. The formula really suits my lashes well, and it coats them in a thick, dark black. I have relatively large eyes and super long lashes. For reference, I prefer a thickening formula with no clumps that allows my lashes to taper naturally towards the ends. Applying this mascara is a pleasure every morning. I can’t believe I’m actually saying that.

  14. Supreme

    Studio Fix Boldblack Lash by MAC. LOVE.

    • Erica

      This is my favorite too. I love this stuff and have tried just about all the ones mentioned in this post (except the Armani).

  15. Natalie

    MUFE Smoky Lash, by far!

  16. Chelsea

    Stila Major Lash Mascara in black is a glossy, true black. I think they discontinued it, though. :(

    Number 3 is not a mascara but used over one or on bare lashes and that is Film Noir Lash Lacquer. The lacquer is the blackest of black. Amazing.
