There are different shades of black? Yes, perhaps men can’t tell but these are all different shades of black kohl, not all are the same! There are deep blacks to soft blacks. Finding the perfect black kohl is essential and every girl is looking for the deepest black with the longest wearing.
I put together all the black Kohl I had which were a mix of international brands, local Arab brands and from Pakistan. Have a look at what I found.
1. MAC Smoulder
2. Inglot #01 Kohl Pencil
3. Benefit Bad Gal Waterproof
4. Clinique Intense Ebony #01
5. Marc Jacobs Gel Eyeliner
6. Mikyajy Sabaya Kohl (Arab brand)
7. J Casanova #801 (Mehmood Syed Arab brand)
8. Saeed Ghani (Pakistani brand)
Deep Black: Clinique Intense Ebony, Marc Jacobs Gel Eyeliner, Saeed Ghani, Inglot #01 and (to be fair I forgot to include MAC Feline in this comparison which is also very dark)
Dark: J Casanova (Mehmood Syed), Mikyajy Sabaya Kohl
Medium Dark MAC Smoulder
