MAC Carbonized Eye Shadow Review + Swatches

Disclosure: The MAC eye shadow in Carbonized used in this review was purchased with my own money.

Baking Beauty says: MAC’s Carbonized is  a rich dark brown with shimmer. It’s great color payoff and long lasting power have earned it a place in my go to makeup drawer.


Best for: Those looking for a warm brown to put all over the lid or in the crease.

Avoid it if: You have fine lines. The little sparkles seemed to migrate towards mine.

MAC Carbonized Eye Shadow Review + Swatches



Mulch is a rich dark brown. It provided great pigmentation that you don’t need to build up.


A little dry, but easy to blend.

Ease of use:5/5

It’s easy to wear, and didn’t give me any fall out problems.

Lasting Power:5/5

Carbonized wears for over 8 hours on me when I use a primer. (I’m currently using Tarte’s).



This neutral shade is good quality and something I’ll reach for often.

Available at: Your local MAC counter or Nordstrom
