Blackbeard for Men Black is a jet black cosmetic color. The original color worn by Cap'n Jim and the color that started it all! It has no other colors in it, so it is best suited for men with true black facial hair. It’s a matte color, which means it doesn’t have much sheen to it, so it should blend naturally with yer mustache, beard and sideburns. Ye can also use a tissue to dull the color if ye find it’s too intense, or to leave some gray for a salt and pepper effect.
