Hello,

I am looking to get a MAC eyeshadow to use as eyeliner and I am not sure which finish would work best. I am going between Black Tied and Carbon; BT has a velvet finish and Carbon has a matte finish. Any suggestions for which would work best?

TIA!!!

Yes I would try Carbon first. Black Tied has a little bit of sparkle which is gorgeous but I love it on the lids or the outer corners to really show it off as opposed to Carbon.

Have fun!

Thanks Pursegrrl! I didn't realize that BT had sparkle and that wouldn't work for me as an everyday liner. But, it would be totally fun for a night out :yahoo:

I am ordering carbon now; I love internet shopping!!

i just bought the Hot Contrast eyeshadow and i used it as a liner and i loooove it. its soooo black.
OOOOH....I like the Hot Contrast! How does the silver/red/black combo look on? I am never sure how to apply and am convinced that I would mess it up. :shame:
