General Comments on this product:
Matte black. Much like Black Tied and Beauty Marked, and really any black shadow, when used with a brush it has a tendancy to drop onto your cheeks during application. A simple remedy to this is putting extra loose powder on your cheeks before applying shadow, and then brushing that off with a powder or buffer brush after shadow application. With a single brush application it appears a deep charcoal gray. If going for this effect a base of face powder or VERY dry, non-oily lids is a must, or the color won't deposit evenly. With a second, and for some a third application, it is a deep, true, matte black. One of my personal everyday shadows to use alone or as a powder liner. Priceless for my runway and stage work.

I use this only as a liner, I don't like a lot of eyeliner, just definition, and it's perfect. The pigmentation is great, better than black tied, and I keep it with me always.

This was the first mac product I did purchase, after trying black eyeshadows of almost every brand I found MAC to have the most pigmented and versatile black, good as liner and as smokey eye, I would def. buy this again and again!

I love this for that smokey eyed look. Pair it up with black tied as a liner, print and primisque.

I got this shadow in a swap and have been using it lightly in the crease to add depth to my looks to great effect - I find it easy to blend, and it can be applied heavily for a true black or lightly to simply darken the colours already present

Comments: This is just kind of mediocre to me... It looks black in the pot, but always turns quite bluish grey on me... I was hoping to use it for a smokey eye, but I can't do it!

I just can't blend this color very well for a smokey eye. Or when i think it looks well blended it looks horrible in pictures. But I usually use this as a liner. Maybe if I get better at blending then I would give it a higher rating.

I like this e/s but I use it more as an e/l. Goes on smooth and lasts well.

A plain black matte e/s. That is all the words i can use to describe it. I will not rebuy because i will never run out! i only use it on the outer crease for a dramatic look. I can buy a plain black shadow from any brand and not spend $10 (pan).

Most plain black eyeshdows that I have tried before have been really chalky and hard to apply. But Carbon has been very smooth & works well with almost any color, and is fantastic for a smokey eye.

I find myself using this mostly around the lash line to create more of a smokey looking eye. Its a good black and everybody needs a good black in their makeup collection. But i would have to agree with some of the others and say its not the most blendable eyeshadow in my collection.

This is the best black eye shadow that i have used to date. its great for making panda eyes, smoky eyes, and etc. i think everyone should have this. the bad thing is that it doesnt blend well just like what the others said. other than that its a great product.
