Ordered a pro pan of this online and was a bit unsure judging by the unreliable MAC colour representations on the website and reviews here, received it and it's better than I ever dared to expect!!
To me, it looks to be a nice cool toned dark brown with hints of purple shimmer in the pan, I teamed it with vex and the lightest shade from the graphic garden palette and it looked STUNNING, really really classy.
The texture is lovely and blended so easily. Can't wait to try out some more looks with this bad boy!

Nice blend of charcoal, brown, and red. It's a nice alternative to Carbon for a smokey eye. It's easier to blend and isn't as harsh.

ahhh, another eyeshadow that seemed like it was potentially a great color for everyone....only for me to find out that somehow it looked horrible on me. why cant MAC not make a single deep dark brown??? mac is always going for these theoretically magical "complex" deep colors, but they all end up being sheer dirty dingy dark greys....smut, beauty marked, nocturnelle, etc.
This color turned out especially "meh" on me, with a weird greenish cast (nothing like a muddy grey green to really bring out the pink in ones eyes).
I guess I'll just stick to mulch for my brown with a heaping of black liner to deepen it, and if i want an e/s that's really deep dark and rich, I'll have to go over to the teals like plumage, the deep blues like contrast, or to the purples like mystical mist.
or, oh wait, here's an idea, maybe I could just stop relying on MAC for EVERYTHING, and branch out in search of my deep dark rich brown....

Smut is one of those shadows that's a staple in your stash. Essential for a smokey eye, for darkening that outer corner, etc. Its almost a nondescript dark purpley brown. It'ts not a shadow that immediately catches your attention, but once you have it you realize how important it really is.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Black, Straight Eyes: Brown
This is one of my go to smokey eye shades. Good color payoff and very blendable. I'm about an NC15, but I think this would be great on anyone. If you love a smokey eye, you need this shadow.

My new favorite MAC shadow! The best smokey eye creating shadow I have ever used. Super blendable and buildable. Sold only in MAC PRO stores...so I just ordered it on ebay. I own over 50 MAC shadows and this will always be in my collection.

you have to have this in your collection my dears. its purply/greyish/brown. its wierd but it works. i use this in almost every smokey eye look that i do and it blends in so well with other MAC shades that i pair it with. love it, will definitely repurchase. this is one versatile shadow. its worth the $14.50 youll pay

Like many other reviewers had said this is a definite staple! I love this color so much. I use it to create a smokey eye look when i want something dramatic. This color is special because it is not to intense and is the perfect soft blendable black. It has little sparkles of gold in it too that you don't even notice much when you apply. I use it with many other colors just do darken my corners a bit. I also use it to soften my eyeliner when I want a softer look when using fluidline. As much as I use it one pot has lasted me over a year! Definite must have!

I was at Mac today, and I cant believe I havent tried this eyeshadow! its a must have now! Its funny I did live without it for so long until now, you know what I mean, right?This texture is a Velvet which surprised me, since it blends so well I can pair it with so much since its a deep grey brown.I will find a home for it in my collection for the rest of my life!

first lemme say that the mac swatch (for once) is VERY accurate.
I loooove smut! i dont know why but it's really hard to find a cool toned brown, it seems like they're always reddish and i do not like orangey-reds around my brown eyes because i look...weird.
this is a plumy dark brown; no red-based purple, but a cool toned purple.
the texture is not frosty, so it has no shimmer, but blends easily which sets it apart from a bad chalky e/s.
one of my all-time favorite browns <3

I always forget that I have MAC Smut ... and every time I pull it out, it just makes my heart dance. Smut is a deep smokey soft black with what appears to my eye .. to be deep crimson and purple shimmer. What I love about this is that it's perfect for creating a smokier eye when I don't want the look as harsh as with Carbon or another matte black shadow. It pairs well with a variety of colors, and works equally well as a crease shade and a liner shade. It glides on with rich pigmentation and blends exceptionally well. Great shade that I think everyone should have in their stash!

I love Smut ... it's everything I was hoping Embark would be. I agree with reviewer below that says if you were to buy one MAC, this would be a good one to start with. Pretty, blendable, color - great for a smoky eye. Like someone below says, it's not black, gray, brown or purple - it's kinda all of these colors! Long lasting. Love this!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
This is my smokey eye staple, amazingly easy to blend, and like someone else said, it's mistake-proof. With a pot of Smut and a really good quality eyeshadow brush, say a MAC 217, it really does make a gorgeous just-the-right-amount-of-smokiness-eye. I use this for night's out - I used to use Carbon/Print before I found this - it's an amazing eyeshadow. I'm on my first pot, but I have a back-up already.

My favourite eyeshadow formula/colour EVER!
Whoever said its a staple for any makeup-bag, you are spot-on. I have found this product to be great for smokey heavy eye looks, blending, or wearing even alone along the lashline. The colour's fantastic with my brown/hazel eyes, and great when i'm my natural hair colour (light red), blonde and dark.
Seriously - if you are going to buy ONE dark shadow from MAC, get this one. Not Carbon, or Contrast, or Cloudburst - SMUT. Simply because its not grey, its not black, its not purple and its not brown. Its a perfect blend of them all.
The wear of course is impeccable as with all MAC shadows, and also almost fault-proof.

This has become my new favourite eyeshadow from MAC! The color is very pretty and blends really well! Recommend this as a staple for any makeup bag!

im in love with this eyeshadow
i wear it all over the lid alone it looks multidimensional on me like dark dark grey with purple sheen i love it

This one is definitely a grower. When I first got it I rarely used it but now I find myself using it at least once a week as a crease shade. For me it's the softer, more interesting version of Carbon. Great for adding definition without the look becoming too harsh, it softens lines and smokes out almost any lid colour you choose. It's a velvet finish so blends and smudges really well. Haven't really used it as an all over lid colour, bit too dark for that. I'd describe the colour as deep slightly reddish charcoal. Doesn't sound like it would work but it does. A staple.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Olive Hair: Black, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
I like this velvet shade for smokey eyes. It doesnt pack on easily but shows up dusty and matte. This is really nice with brown eyes. This looks so good on the lid but Ricepaper underneath. I love Smolder eye pencil with this especially. This color works great for Blondes as well as darker haired ladies,

Smut is a dark sooty grey with slight purplish tones. Most greys end up turning a little blue on my eyelids, but Smut is the only one I've found that doesn't. This is great blended all over the lid for a smoky eye, used in the crease or outer V, or applied with a dampened eyeliner brush and used a liner. It has a nice, soft texture that's long-lasting. A highly versatile eyeshadow.

I swapped for this eyeshadow a few weeks back, and it just sat in my palette until last night. I was running late for a date with my fiancee and I needed to put together something fast. I applied Smut to my entire eyelid, and used Dazzlelight to blend it up into my brow bone, and I had the perfect smokey eye. I used Smut underneath my lower lashline added some black liner and mascara, and voila! I had the perfect, easy, fast smokey look. I can't believe that I had ignored this gorgeous eyeshadow with so much potential! It's such a pretty color and really makes my green-grey eyes stand out. The next combo I will try with this will be Seedy Pearl on the lid with Smut in the crease and Carbon in the outer V. I think the Seedy Pearl will help bring out the gorgeous purple tones in Smut. This is one of my favorite MAC shadows and I know that I will purchase it again when I run out.
