Editor's Review

MAC Carbon Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a little bit layered on top. The texture was smooth, more substantial without being powdery, and felt richer than past iterations of this shade (which has truly run the spectrum of ratings).

It wasn't quite as blendable, though, but it retained more of its intensity so the trade off for richness in exchange for a little more time spent blending might be worth it to some. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.
