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!

HANDS DOWN THE BEST BLACK SHADOW OUT THERE. I have mac carbon, bb charcoal, ud perversion, and many others. but this puts them all to shame. This is the one I come back too time and time again. It's blacker than black and blends like a dream. Plus it's dirt cheap. What more can u ask for? If you are looking for a true black shadow. Look no further.:)

Wow, super pigmented so a little bit is all that is needed. I use this to line the upper lash line on the waterline, with minimal fallout and transfer to the lower waterline and use what ever is left on the brush to very lightly fill in my brows. I doubt I'll repurchase only because such a small amount is needed to make an impact. Money well spent.
Update: Still lovin' it! If I add just a touch more than is needed to the upper lash line and squeeze my eyes a couple of times, it gives a very sexy sooty look:)

This is a great dupe for MAC's Carbon. I actually like it better than MAC's version because it's buttery smooth. Stays on all day, no smudges, or creases. It's a must-have. It also works great as an eyeliner.
