The only comment I have to add is about this shadow being difficult to blend for some other reviewers. Do you all use some kind of eyeshadow primer for example Urban Decay Primer or whatever primer of your choice? I find that this if I don't use a primer first, then many of MAC shadows will either streak or I'll have a hard time blending. There are brands that don't seem to require a primer first, but MACS darker pigmented shadows are not one of those brands. IMO.

I recently fell back in love with this shadow, I have so many that I tend to neglect some of them from time to time. This color is a mix of black, purple, dark grey? I'm not really sure to be exact. I love using to really darken up any eye look. You can have a simple look with 1 shade on the lid and pop this on the outter v and bam you have a great smokey dramatic eye. This was a late love for me, as I do have many dark colors. I prefer this over carbon any day. Would def repurchase.

First let me say that........I am a MAC addict.I love me some MAC!I especially love any dark or light cool toned browns, blacks, and browned/tauped purples....for my crease or entire lid for a smokey eye.With that being said,Smut is a very "slight velvet"......(but imo, this is really a matte!)Its a cool toned muted black with just a very small hint of a reddish purple undertone shimmers. Though to me, the shimmers are only evident while in the pan.I WISH THAT MINE LOOKED LIKE THE PIC ABOVE WITH THE LID OPEN! And the swatch on MAC's site!Unfortunately, mine does not! And I bought mine straight from MAC.com, too!So, I know it is not an old or a knock off shadow!(I really really really wanted the shadow to look exactly like the cool toned dark blackened brown with the dark reddish/purple shimmers......just like the image above shows and the swatch on MAC.com!)I want that color above so bad...for my crease and for a smokey look on my lids.If any of you have one that is similar to that color,please message me.....I will be so grateful!I am very confused about the review below.....that is stating that her shadow is soft and easy to blend!Because.... this shadow is so HARD!!!!It doesn't blend well either!I get darker spots here and there...no matter how long I blend my primer and base out. My 224 and 217 brushes can;t even do the trick easily! And its not from lack of experience.....because I always use MAC, U.D, and Smashbox makeup!! Its too bad that this one was just so disappointing for me! And for $11.00 and the name MAC stamped on it.....I think that this texture is crazy and should be wayyyy better!On a better note, I can say that this is good for a different type of black.

I got Smut for curiosity sake because some friends raved out it and I have to say it's my #2 shadow from MAC...my #1 is Espresso.I really like the color which to me is like a plum brown with some sparkle and it really makes my green eyes pop. It's so soft and easy to work with....can go light or darker for an edgier look.

Smut is a dark, smokey brown with plum tones. It's a satin finish, so it has the tiniest bit of shimmer. I think the MAC site describes it as being a blackened brown with red reflects, but it's not. It's a dark, nearly-matte, plummy brown. I love to use this for softening liquid liner or putting in the crease, but it also works on the lid blended out with a lighter color in the crease for a true smokey eye. The only real drawback to this shadow is the texture. It's hard to swatch Smut because the texture is honestly kinda crappy. It isn't soft and buttery and this makes it more difficult to blend. If you are willing to pay $11 (pro-pan) and are willing to work with it, it's a beautiful color. If not, skip it.

beautiful outer v shade for darkening and making a smokey look. perfect for smokey day time looks also.this is much nicer than using a matte black in my opinion.it is pigmented and blends like a dream. like everyone else has mentioned, this is a nice dark brown/charcoal color. so glad i picked this up. can be paired with anything really for darkening the outer corners... love this, and i will definitely be using this a lot.

It's a very unique color and it's hard to describe.It's mostly a dark grey with slight brownish/almost reddish tone to it. The texture is amazing and easy to work with. It's a must for smokey day looks and a nice change from Carbon for darkening colors and outer corners. I also love to put it on my lower lash line to set and smoke out black eye liner and it looks so good !

Smut is a versatile color I think you could use on any skin tone. The colour is hard to discribe, it is somewhere between a brown and a charcoal grey. Also it is often described as having red sheen, this red sheen is really only obvious when in the box. I guess it could serve as a basic one to do your smokey eye and it could be toned down for day time (although it is very easy to build up more intense colour). The texture is very smooth, really glides on (I use it on my painterly pot).

I love this eyeshadow. It's reddish black but it's just beautiful to look at. It's got this edge to it. I like it for smokey looks (for night time) but I'm dying to try it for daytime as well. I wouldn't use Carbon with this unless I'm going to go out at night. I am pretty sure it will look good on any skin tone. (MAC NC42/43).
