I got the LAST one of these at the MAC counter nearest me and I am so glad I bought it. It really was the last one and not a sales pitch as I saw the SA remove the tester from the display as I was leaving the store. I was a bit hesitant to purchase it at first, since I already own Mulch, Twinks, Centre Stage and so many other MAC shadows that are "pretty close". But Carbonized is not the same as any of these other very good shadows. It is a perfect very rich brown with a flattering golden/bronzey sheen. Applies and blends beautifully and wears very well (over a base, of course). Makes for a great simple brown smokey eye that looks sexy but not overpowering, and is great smudged at the outer corner with a nude/neutral lid colour. It is so sultry and gorgeous smudged under the lower lashes. A great shadow in a sultry, deep brown that I think anyone could wear, whatever their eye colour and skin tone. If you can still get this, give it a try. I've yet to actually finish a MAC eyeshadow but Carbonized (together with Prepped for Glamour) might be the first!
