I tend to reach for grey blacks more than true blacks when doing a smokey eye. In this case it is because Typographic seems to be easier to blend and the colour is not as harsh on fairer skin tones as Carbon would be. Also, it is a matte, so you don't have to deal with sparkly fall out when you wear it for a night out on the town. This should be a staple of every MAC lovers collection.

For all of you who said you prefer this to carbon: you are 100% right. I find carbon being much harder to blend than Typographic, so unless I am doing a very dramatic look, I skip carbon altogether and use Typographic. I can't tell you how perfect this eyeshadow is and how well it blends (very important for matte colors, I find). This is my top 5 must haves, especially if you like sexy and elegant smokey eyes.

I prefer this colour to carbon.its easier to apply & i much prefer to build the dark colours up than have them dark from first application. If you like the smokey eye, you have to have this colour. I cant live without it :-)

Love Typographic. I use it almost daily as a soft eyeliner, since I dislike the way hard lines look on my eyes; I much prefer smokey/smudge-y looks. This is fantastic for smokey eyes. The color is much nicer than black on my fair skin and blue eyes. Great staying power, very blendable, incredibly pigmented. HG.

there was a rumour last year that this color was to be discontinued from MAC -- so I went out and bought 3 replacement pans and had my personal one and one that I use quite a bit in my palettes... Well the rumours were not true, but I have no regrets on purchasing these since they are a staple for a dark smokey eye or for lining. The color is such a deep dark grey -- beautiful matte texture and no blue undertones.perfect for most skins and perfect for a neat application since it doesn't dust all over the place.

I use Typographic every day for smudging my eyeliner or for a deep V-smudgy look, just to give my eyes some depth (I have like semi-monolids). It blends really well, and it's not too intense. I made the mistake of buying Carbon, thinking Carbon would give a great smoky eye look, but the matte texture just doesn't really blend well. Typographic I think is matte2 texture, and I use it much more than Carbon. This may be the first MAC eyeshadow that I actually run out of.

I have this just in case I need a black shadow, I don't use it often but I really like it because its not true black. I like it with my silver smokey eye look.

Simply amazing. This shadow is my favorite formula, Matte2 which is creamy, blends like a dream and true to color. Typographic is great to smoke out other silvery type shadows like Patina or Satin Taupe or line the eyes for a smokey effect. This is a more blendable, less harsh option to Carbon/Black Tied as well. I have been using this way more than Carbon lately especially when I'm in a rush because it's so much easier to use, I find Carbon hard to blend at times.

Great colour for lining the eyes, or adding extra drama to the outer V. Really good pigmentation without being super black.

This is the perfect color for smokey eyes. Unlike carbon eyeshadow it is not chalky and it actually blends out. Texture is amazing and pigmentation is great. Staple, Staple.
