Sorry.. another thread by me v.v

I can't find a good black eyeshadow either. They look okay at first, but slowly they turn greyish and in pictures they are very greyish! They kind of fade? What's a good brand? Here, I found only the less expensive brands had black o_O; the better brands have browns and pretty colors... v.v

thanks~

the BEST and truest black eyeshadow that i've ever used is called "Carbon" by M.A.C.
It's about $15 for a pot, but well worth the money.

Got to love that MAC "Carbon." It is gorgeous!

Stila "Ebony": a tiny bit goes a long way and it's more pigment-rich and smoother than MAC Carbon.

i've heard good things about Stila's e/s's as well, but i hate their palettes and the individual shadow pans don't fit into the MAC pro palette.

*sigh*

Chanel, Bonita, Mac and Lancome make really good black eye shadows. Also if you take a q-tip get it wet and use it to apply the eye shadow it will make it look darker and last longer ^_^

There's always Ben Nye. I've never used their black color before, but they have a history of good stuff. And it's cheaper than designer makeup.

I'm a pretty die hard MAC and Urban Decay Girl, but I picked up a Sonia Kashuk compact on clearnce at Target and was pretty inpressed. So if you don't have access to the other brands you might be able to pick this one up, it was pretty cheap too. The pigment last all day. ^^

I'm a total cheapskate, so I bought black Rimmel from Wal-Mart for about two dollars, and I'm quite impressed with it. I don't know your particular preferences, but for two bucks why not take the chance?

there's a Canadian drugstore line called Annabelle that makes a good black eyeshadow.

it's not a pure "#000000" black, but more a "soft black" that can be smudged very nicely. they are nice and inexpensive too :)

but sometimes you want to get a rich "true" black eyeshadow, y'know?

It may also help if you put a bit of concealer for base before you apply the eyeshadow :)
