i rarely ever buy single shadows (i like to get more bang for my buck, so i stick with palettes most of the time) but i wanted a good matte black eyeshadow to use as a liner for days when i felt that liquid was too harsh. this definitely works! it is super pigmented, and i was sooo surprised at how creamy it felt. there isn't much to say about the color because, well, it's just a matte black lol. there are some super small, barely noticeable sparkles in the pan, but you don't notice them at all once applied. it does go on a little patchy, but what matte black doesn't? it's nothing a little primer can't fix! i haven't noticed any fall out when applying. the packaging works just fine, and it's very small, so it doesn't take up much space. overall, i'm super happy with this shadow. a good matte black is a staple that everyone should own, especially when it's this cheap!!

I don't wear black eyeshadow very often so I didn't want to spend a lot of money on one. So I picked this one and am really happy with the quality of it. It's easily worn as an eyeliner and blends nicely as a shadow.

Very good black eyeshadow. No complaints at all. I have no need to keep looking for a good black eyeshadow! However, I find any black eyeshadow a little too harsh most of the time and prefer to use a brown shade.

Intense matte black pigment! I've been using this as eyeliner. A wet detail brush dipped in this shadow enables me to draw a very dark line on my eyes. It does eventually smear a bit, but my skin is oily, so I wouldn't expect otherwise. I'd buy it again, but since I'm only using this as eyeliner, it will last a very long time.

What can I say about this product except that it is fantastic. I have been searching for a highly pigmented black eyeshadow that I can double as an eyeliner. I originally was going to get carbon from MAC but after the reviews on MUA I decided to get this one. First off NYX is known fo being an exceptionally good drugstore brand. The price is also fairly affordable compared to MAC. So onto the actualy product review. It is a deep black colored eyeshadow that can be added to your eyes to create a perfect smokey eye effect or you can wet an angled brush and turn it into a stunning eyeliner. I use this black for everything and it will seriously last me forever. If you are searching for a simple blach eyeshadow, you cannot go wrong with this product. I promise you will fall in love with it just as much as I have.

Pros: Dark black, matte.
Cons: FALL OUT galore! UGH! Hate it! I have a L'oreal Black that was probably just about the same price and has WAYYYY less fall out. Its a little less black, but has way less fall out. I even got an LA Girls single from Dollar Tree (glitter in pan, not on eyes) that is better. Grrr. Wasted of $4 + tax.

it is a matte black eyeshadow color..
i use this to deepen my outer V area everytime i want to achieve a smoky eye look..
it is very easy to blend so it won't leave like a harsh edges on to your eyes.. as a lot of ppl know, the key to achieve smoky look is to keep blending and has a nice gradient from light to dark.. all you need is just a very little, it is pigmanted enough.. the texture is sooo soft.. i am going to buy another for my back up.. lol :D

I bought it because it's a true black, and I like that of it. I wanted it to set my eyeliner... and it did look wonderful after I applied it. Nevertheless, a couple of hours after, marvelous black was gone!!! It's staying power is really bad, and since it's one of the most importart issues for me, I think I will not be buying it again.

To be honest, i'm not a big fan of this eye shadow. Yes it is a true black colour and yes it does blend quite well. But it doesn't have the greatest staying power. I use it to line my waterline after I applied my eyeliner pencil. And it makes my eyeliner really smudgy and muddy and it runs down. Doesn't stay on matte. But it is good for the lids like a smokey eye.
