The best black eyeshadow ever created! This beats any and all black e/s I have tried in the past. MAC's carbon is not as deep and dark as this is. I bought this for $7 CND, but you can get it online for much cheaper. Save you $$ and buy this if your looking for a good black.

THE ultimate matte black shadow. Beats any other black shade I've ever seen. I've never used MAC Carbon, but see no need when I have NYX Black. It's a fantastic addition to any makeup bag because it can be lightly applied to the outer corner of the lid to spruce up or smoke out a regular lid color. Very, VERY pigmented and has great staying power. Will definitely repurchase.

After borrowing my friend's, I HAD to buy my own. This is a beautiful eyeshadow. Very dark matte black, very soft and super pigmented. It is a must-have.

Wow, this is one heck of a pigmented eyeshadow! I thought my last black matte eyeshadow was pigmented, but not compared to NYX's black! I have been wanting to purchase this for awhile, but I wanted to use up my other black eyeshadow first (which was Annabelle's Ebony) and I wish I just would have purchased this sooner. I like using black E/S in my crease and my lid, depending on what look I want- I dipped my brush into this and one dip was enough to shade my whole crease fully, I had to go over it one more time to shape and I was done in a very short amount of time since there was nearly no blending needed & the color was so strong. I am so happy with this purchase, I have been nothing but pleased with all my NYX eyeshadow singles so far. Where I live in Canada these retail for $7.98 each, I prefer to purchase them from Cherry Culture for $3.50, it takes 2 weeks to arrive but I think its worth it as I can pick up other NYX items for dirt cheap. If you want a black matte shadow that will beat out MAC's Carbon anyday- you need to try this!

A limerick, for NYX's Black.


There once was a shadow from NYX,
I picked up to sate my cheap "Carbon" dupe fix,
"Black" is SO versatile
You can't help but smile
And price for the quality? I'm shitting bricks.


... hmm. I'll work on that more.

Fabulous product. I don't have MAC Carbon, so I can't compare, but I don't foresee ever needing to buy it. This is everything I want in a matte black: smooth, silky, dark & pigmented. A must-have staple.

Must have for makeup users. This is such a smooth blendable matte black! I love using it to top off my khol eyeliner and it doesn't run and keeps my liner in place! Such a must have with multiple ways to use it!

This is a really potent black eyeshadow! The color payoff is great, which means a really intense black but at the same time, its blendable. I loove this shadow...great for smokey eyes or just a little bit extra drama when placed in the outer corner and/or the crease.

This is a good, matte black (and I do mean black) eyeshadow. I tried using it as an eyeliner but there was too much fallout. I love the color because its a true black with no shimmer. My only gripe with this is that the day after I got it it broke! Its crumpled now on one side but I can still use it. Its not like i dropped it or anything, it was just in my makeup bag and my other NYX eyeshadows didn't break. I took one lippie off for that but I will still probably repurchase.
