Love it !

This shadow is one the best blacks I own , it's great for lining your eyes , I really recommended ! You can built up as much as you want and it's very blend-able. If you ever need a new black shadow check this one out .

I use this eyeshadow to outline my eyes as eyeliner looks too hard on me for an everyday look. I personally love it and it is very long lasting. I wake up at 6 and do my makeup every morning and it last all day until I get home at about 5. The actual pot of eyeshadow also lasts for a very long time.

Although, I would not recommend it to use on the whole eyelid as it is quite blotchy and for it to look even you have to apply a little at a time on a little are of the eyelid and build it up which can actually take about an hour for me in order to make it perfect.

Overall though I think this is a great product and I will be buying more when mine runs out.

Simpley Wonderful

I have found that this eyeshaddow is the most wonderful black matte shade I have ever tried. It pigment is great. Its a great quality. I use it by itself and to darken other colors. Best shaddow you could have for layering a smoking eye or doing a scene look. I also press this over my eyeliners so this is. I always have to wear black liner I am kinda obsested with it. So this is an everyday product for me and I am very pleased with it

Not all they're hyped up to be...

I have three of these - Carbon, Omega and Sketch.

I HATE Carbon. You'd think it would be a really intense black but it is barely pigmented and you need to build it up A LOT to get a strong black. It comes out very faint. I have a £1 MUA black eyeshadow that has richer pigmentation than Carbon.

Sketch comes out beautifully - it's so smooth, pigmented and a dream to blend. Omega is also great to blend and the taupe colour is great - it's so multi-purpose. I sometimes use it for contour as well as for the crease of my eye when I'm having a "quiet makeup" day!

fantastic!

I have this eyeshadow in Carbon, Brule and Beautiful Iris. I love layering the Carbon and Brule together. I use Brule as a nude base and then use an angled brush for Carbon and I use it as an eyeliner. I use it so often that I've gotten really good at cat eyes. Beautiful Iris is a REALLY nice and soft lavender shade that's nice for dates or when you want a soft eye. It lasts all night and it not heavy at all. Fantastic eyeshadow.

Excellent product

I have the Carbon black from the Disney's Villian collection, it has a illustration of Cruella Deville on it. It's so cute. So I've had this shadow for a long time and I have no hit pan yet. This eyeshadow has great pigment, it a dark matte black which you can darken the colour by layering it. I find that if you use an eye primer on your eyelid MAC eyeshadows have a very long staying power. Sometimes I will also use Carbon with an angled brush as an eyeliner, if I want my eyeliner to be more natural looking.
MAC shadows also have a great range of colours and formulations. I'm sure that whatever colour you are looking for you can find at your local MAC counter.

I have been using Carbon for almost four years, has always been my number one choice for a matte black. It blends amazing for basically every look I do, I will always have it in stock!

The best

This is the best black, I use it all the time for night looks, it doesn't cause fallout to go all over your face which is really nice. Great pigmentation.
