Previously, I have reviewed MAC eye shadows in Romp, Cranberry, Sable , Ricepaper Sketch , Honey Lust.

MAC Carbonized eye shadow is one of the best eye shadows I’ve used! Its everything one would look for in an eye shadow – smooth, soft texture (without being powdery), amazing pigmentation, good blendability and a good wear time.

The shade is a dark chocolate brown with a hint of bronze in it. It has a Veluxe Pearl finish which means it has a soft sheen but is not overly frosty or glittery. Browns are the most versatile shades and a gorgeous bronzed brown is a must-have in everyone woman’s makeup kit! It can be worn in many ways – paired with a soft champagne shade on the lid with Carbonized in the crease, alone with just kohl and mascara, with black for a smokey eye,  with plums/pinks, with lighter browns – you name it and this color can be paired with it!

This MAC eye shadow is perfect it terms of formula as well the shade. The only con is that it is a Limited Edition product!

I’d highly recommend this shade!

Overall Verdict

 

A bronzed dark chocolate brown is a universally flattering shade especially if you are of warmer skin tone. MAC Carbonized is everything one desires an eye shadow to be – smooth texture, good color pay off, easy to blend and excellent wear time. I hope they make this part of the permanent collection, this is a must-have eye shadow especially for Indian skin tones!

Rating : 4.8/5

  1. Mac Carbonised is a dupe for Hustle in the UD Naked Pallete. So if you have Naked you don’t need to by Carbonised 🙂
