    Typographic or Carbon

    Carbon is matte and Typographic is matte2. Witch one is easier to blend, but, black, black, BLACK!!!

    Carbon is the Blackest and I find it very easy to blend.

    I also like the Blackest Black Chromaline as well

    Well seeing as typographic is grey I'd have to say Carbon. It can sometimes be a pain in the butt to use but sometimes not.

    Carbon is the blackest black in the makeup market and in the eyeshadow world. Apply a bit and blend with the 224: you get Typographic.

    Typographic is nice, but I use it when I want to deepen a color, without necessarily making it look black. For example, the other day, I wanted to darken Handwritten eyeshadow. Using the 219 brush, I applied a tad of Typographic in the outer corner and really blended it into the eyeshadow. The result was a super dark brown with no traces of black whatsoever.

    Carbon. period. It's the blackest black I've ever seen on the market. Very versatile, and I find it quite easy to blend.
    Typographic is not really black tho.

    Carbon is great. I don't have trouble blending it at all.
