I love this eyeshadow! I needed a good pigmented black eyeshadow to set my eyeliner and this was perfect! It's smooth, cheap, and goes on very dark. Comparing it to other eyeshadows you get plenty of product. This is going to last you a long time! I definitely recommend this, it's a must have! (:

I needed a new matte black having lost my old one, so I picked this up with my last order on Cherry Culture. The pigmentation is really intense and is matte. Absolutely no shimmer at all which is fantastic. I agree with the other reviewers that this has a fair bit of fallout when applied dry. When wet, it doesn't have any and is great to use for lining eyes as well. I use it to set my black pencil eyeliner to help it last throughout the day and occasionally with smokey eyes.

An excellent matte black eyeshadow for its price. Very pigmented, blendability is pretty good, and it's affordable (I paid $5 USD for mine). However, I get a bit of fallout if I'm not careful applying it. I have to carefully pat, not swipe, it on my lid. And the fallout doesn't only happen while applying--after a few hours, I'll find a few black specks underneath my eyes that I know was from the eyeshadow. This happens even when I've applied primer.
Despite that, I would purchase again if I ever ran out or somehow lost or damaged it. The fallout isn't a crazy amount, and this is one of the few, rare makeup items that is both good quality and dirt cheap.

I am on the fence with this eyeshadow. on the one hand, it's very black and matte, which is hard to find in a drugstore brand. On the other, I got a ton of fallout which made applying this a big old mess, and I didn't feel like it blended out very well. the staying power is fine with primer, since I don't wear shadow w/o primer, I can't really speak to that. Overall, I was just not impressed with this particular nyx product. If you really want a matte black shadow and don't want to spend a lot of money, this is fine. However, I think I will move on to something else.

I'm an eyeshadow newbie. Went searching for NYX after hearing about it, figured it would be a good brand to try. Lots of the NYX colors have glitter in them and I wanted a matte one...finally decided on Black, so was happy to come home and check out MUA and see all the RAVE reviews about this color!
I love the little containers that the singles come in, nice and small. And I love the quality of the shadow...SUPER pigmented. I barely have to touch my eyeshadow brush to the color...seriously. I haven't tried the shadow on its own, so can't really say anything about how it lasts by itself. However I CAN say that, with UD's Primer Potion as a base, it does last a long time without creasing.
I recommend NYX Black if you want a black shadow...it's very black!

I love how this is creamy and pigmented. STAYS ON. Can be used wet, too! But I use it as eyeliner, and I have a lot of fallout. Even when I shake off excess and have switched brushes. I love the packaging, sturdy and easy to travel with.

I <3 this eyeshadow. It's very dark and it has no fallout. The texture is soft and creamy. :)

I was in Ulta and swatched this and UD Perversion. I couldn't tell the difference except for UD being about $11 more money. Now, don't get me wrong, I do love UD shadows but with the black matte shade, save your money and get NYX! This shadow is insanely pigmented and smooth.

for me, this eyeshadow was one of those pleasant surprises. i'm a huge fan of carbon by mac & this eyeshadow really impressed me. it has the depth of carbon, but is sooo much softer/smoother when applying. and for the price, it is an outstanding substitute for those who want great quality & an even better price. the only thing i don't like, is the raised sections NYX eyeshadows have.

After hearing how this was an exact dupe for MAC's Carbon, I rushed out and bought this, since my Maybelline Night Sky was a horrendous disappointment. And holy crap, to say I was shocked was an understatement! I was a little put off at first because it depotted itself right when I opened it, but I fixed it up with some guerilla glue and it's stuck ever since. But anyways, I couldn't believe how richly pigmented this stuff was! It reminds me a lot of the charcoal I use in my art classes. Very smooth and velvety with the richest pigmentation of any eyeshadow I've ever used. Definitely buying again!
