A Hunt for the Best LBL (Little Black Liner)

     Most everyone's familiar with a woman's best friend and wardrobe staple, the LBD (Little Black Dress). Right?  Well I am on the hunt for a different best friend and makeup staple, the LBL (Little Black Liner).  
     No look is complete without the perfect lined eyes, and black is my color of choice.  It goes with just about every shadow color, looks polished, and pulls it all together.  Don't get me wrong, I am not opposed to other colors of eyeliner, as I do have many.
However, I've found it particularly challenging to find a personal favorite Little Black Liner.  One that is my go to liner, or holy grail of eyeliners.  I've tried many, believe me, and only recently begun to find some that I really like, and use often.
     I got the idea to do a blog series in parts, posting one Little Black Liner review a few times a month.  I have liquid, gel, laquer, permanent, waterproof, pencil, pen, pot, retractable, and many more that I have tried, and will try during this hunt of mine.  
     I am well aware that what might be my best LBL, may not be yours.(ex: people love UD's 24/7 liners, didn't do it for me) More on that later.  So, I will try to give as much info as possible on why it did or didn't work for me, who it may work for, links to at least three other reviews, plenty of pictures, and lots of information in hopes that it may make it easier for you to find your favorite LBL.  
     My first installment, Part 1,  will feature Marbella's Permanent Eyeliner Pen.  If any beauty bloggers have reviewed this product already, send me an email with the link.(you can find my email address in the contact me page link in the header)  As I mentioned, I'd like to link to at least three other alternate reviews on the same product at the bottom of the post. Hopefully, giving readers different POV's to make their purchase decisions more informed.  So, likely the first three review links I get emailed will be the ones I use.  
     So stay tuned for Hunt for the LBL Pt. 1, and follow along my journey to find the most badass liners around.  I'd love to take any requests as well if there are liners your dying to know about I'll do my best to try them out :) 



  1. Just started following you through the Monday Beauties blog hop and just joined yours! Btw, I'm still on the lookout for my perfect black eyeliner as well.

    1. Thanks Katy, I'll be sure to visit your blog and follow back! Hopefully my blog series will help you find your fave LBL :)

  2. That is an awesome idea!! I personally love the NYC high definition liner is what it is called I believe in extra black. A super black felt tip eyeliner amazing!!

    1. Thanks Ellen! I'll have to check that liner out!

  3. This is such a good eye-dea (see what I did there?) :) I too am on the hunt for the perfect LBL, I like Lancome Le Crayon in Ebony (nicely smudgeable) I like UD Perversion, and I like my Bobby Brown gel liner, but I don't love any of them. Can't wait to read this series!

  4. Hi
    Thanks for following my blog!
    The new rimmel scandleyes waterproof liners are brilliant, i have the nude & taupe they last all day on me.

    Good Luck with your hunt :D



  5. I have never been comfortable with the liquid liner, I cannot hold my hands that steady, but I do use the pencil eyeliners daily. It really does make a difference.
    I am following you now and would love for you to follow back.

  6. Since I'm on the hunt for an eyeliner will have to check these out. Thanks for posting them.
