It's dark, evil, poisonous, and vile. Actually, it's just an intensely pigmented black eyeshadow. You will have a hard time finding such a deep, dark shadow – especially at this price.
The Bottom Line:
Intense matte black with a very subtle sparkle

A must have! Review by Toni Amber
Definitely a must have for your collection! it's highly pigmented and so easy to blend out. One of my favs from MUG! (Posted on 6/10/16)
Creases and fades Review by Megan
It is true that corrupt is one of the blackest blacks out there. But it's grain is also very coarse. This means that (even with a primer that I've been using for a year without any shadow ever creasing) it creases and fades. It will also grab at the particles of other shadows you used and make them crease and fade as well. This only ever happens when I wear corrupt, and it starts happening within about an hour of wear. Luckily, I have not found that any of the other makeup geek shadows that I own do this. Just corrupt. I hope that one day they come out with a black with a finer grain and no sparkle in it (Posted on 4/26/16)
Cant say enough good things about Corrupt! Review by Lauren
I love love love Corrupt. It was everything I was told to expect....perfection of black eyeshadow. Which funny enough is difficult to find in todays options.
ENJOY! You won't be disappointed! (Posted on 3/6/16)
Holy grail of all blacks, aside from fallout Review by Rikki
This color is so pigmented it is astounding. And what I really love is that it is versatile. I disagree with those who say it does not blend well. I find it blends wonderfully, but you use a light hand and build the color to where you want it. If you want to use it as eyeliner you need to use a push liner brush, anything else blends it out too much. I wish it did not have so much fallout - it does get in the eyes if you are using as eyeliner. (Posted on 12/15/15)
Disappointing Review by Kelly
I've found way blacker blacks, and found this not very easy to blend. Almost chunky, and not quite matte. Would prefer a more buttery matte version. Also, lots of fallout. (Posted on 11/22/15)
Would prefer a matte version Review by Caitlen
I agree with what a previous reviewer said about wanting it to be a matte formula. For me, it's just easier to blend without the shimmer.
I actually found this shade incredibly hard to blend. It's okay because I hardly ever wear black unless I'm going out (rare) but I'll probably wear it even less knowing it takes longer to blend out.
Please make a matte black eyeshadow!!! (Posted on 11/18/15)
Not very versatile Review by Ginny
Yes, it's very black and blendable for a smoky look. However, it just doesn't work as an eyeliner for me. It's almost too soft. If I try to smudge on my upper lash line it goes straight through my lashes and ends up on my bottom lash. It is also transfers and migrates everywhere. After a few hours there will be smudges of it in my crease, on my upper lid, and bleeding down my lower lid. (Posted on 10/20/15)
black Review by tatiana
yes its black, but not the blackest thing, good eyeshadow, i just mind the shimmer in it, i think its useles and you get shimmer on the cheeks.... id change the formula into a matte one. (Posted on 8/17/15)
Nothing else compares!!!!! Review by Kirstin
Super pigmented and very easy to work with. There is a bit of fallout so I always use a tissue under my eyes before doing my foundation. When used wet this makes an amazing eyeliner. I am 42 and I can still wear this (with a light hand of course). I bought mine back in 2012 and I've only just hit pan. This eyeshadow will lasts years! (Posted on 6/16/15)
Blacker than my soul Review by Adi
Corrupt has corrupted me. I have never seen such intensely black eyeshadow in my entire life. It's the bomb. Although in the pan it has bits of sparkle, when applied to the eye it's mostly matte. I love using it as a smokey eyeliner for everyday. AWESOME! (Posted on 6/13/15)
Black Review by Séverine
It's super dark, super pigmented, and yet super blendable. Works wonders as an eyeliner. (Posted on 5/11/15)
Horrifyingly black lol Review by Megan
This shadow is literally so black that I was afraid to use it. I have very fair skin and blue eyes, but I figured I needed a good basic black as a base near my lash line to add that extra drama to dramatic looks. While I still believe that, this black...is so scary because while it is so dark and so creamy, it has HORRENDOUS fallout. When it falls onto my skin it's practically the perfect contrast, white and black. I always do my eye makeup before anything else on my face, but regardless I also feel like it's too much of a contrast so I'm not going to repurchase. I hit pan on it finally which is amazing in itself but I definitely can't put myself through that fear again lol. The texture is very creamy (even after 6 or 7 months) and I give the overall product (pushing my fear aside) 10/10 and would definitely suggest getting it if you don't have this irrational fear, because it is a fantastic eyeshadow! It's SOOO pigmented and creamy! (Posted on 5/11/15)
They're not exaggerating! Review by Estefania
I finally stopped damaging my eyelids by blending my harsh eyeliner whenever I wanted a dark smokey eye. I am so impressed on how blend able it is! I used to always try to buy drugstore black eyeshadows and none of them would work, it would come out very blotchy and gray instead of black, this one definitely is one of my fave, makeup geek eyeshadows are the best in the market, and I refuse to spend money in any other eyeshadows, you will not be disappointed by this eyeshadow, it is the truest black so you can put away regular eyeliner and take out your pencil brush and this eyeshadow to get a perfect smokey eye finish. (Posted on 5/1/15)
it's true Review by BRITTANY
it IS the blackest black. so pigmented that you do get a lot of fallout, so put your shadow on first when using this or put a tissue under your eyes. don't bother buying a black from any other brands (Posted on 3/29/15)
You won't need another black Review by Johanna
Corrupt is the best black I've ever tried. A little goes a long way and it blends beautifully!
The only thing is mine feels a little grainy if touched with my finger, but it feels nice and smooth on the eyelids. Won't need another black ever :D (Posted on 2/21/15)
Ladies, Corrupt is ALL THAT! Review by Tracee
I have had many many many black shadows, and i have used several tricks, water, base, even vaseline to get my black to just be black. Corrupt is just beyond, it is so deep in color. Looks so good with shimmer shadows, goes on black and not gray. But....Don't put on too much have a light hand with this color. another yummy shadow that doesn't have any fallout. (Posted on 2/21/15)

The reviews are true, blackest black. Little fall out, I love it (Posted on 12/31/14)
a true black! Review by Lori-Ann
I saw so many reviews praising this eyeshadow I had to try it. It is blacker than I thought! Highly pigmented, goes on even and not patchy like other darker shadows I've tried. I haven't noticed any significant fallout with this shadow. I just make sure my brush doesn't have too much product on it to prevent this from occurring, plus it's so pigmented anyway I don't find that I need to pack so much product onto the lid like with other shadows. (Posted on 11/15/14)
Perfection Review by Jessica
Perfect texture. Beautiful color. Super pigmented. THE BLACKEST BLACK! (Posted on 10/2/14)
Amazing! Review by Jessica
This shadow is amazing. There are no words that can describe this shadow that haven't already been said by anyone who's come in contact with it. If you have any doubt this is the darkest black on the market today, just buy it, you'll be glad you did. Creamy and smooth with excellent pigmentation. (Posted on 9/30/14)

Definitely the blackest Review by alexa
This eyeshadow is so dark I love it. It isn't as soft as the other ones and has a grainy texture but that doesn't even matter it blends wonderfully and smooths on great. (Posted on 8/16/14)
Love!!! Review by Jessica
Like everyone else says, this is THE blackest black you can find. I use this on the outer corner of my lid anytime I want to do a smokey eye. I find that it pairs well with Bitten in the crease and Mango Tango on the lid. I didn't experience any fallout while using it either. (Posted on 8/12/14)
I know I already wrote a review on this, but... Review by Megan
I also want to add in that because this eyeshadow is SO SO SO pigmented, it has tons of fallout. Ladies, be careful when applying this eyeshadow as it could easily ruin your makeup with all the fallout that comes with it. This eyeshadow is sooooo pigmented though so it's totally worth it to me. I'd recommend putting a tissue under your eyes to prevent that from happening. FYI everyone this is is the only MUG eyeshadow I've come across that's had serious fallout. (Posted on 8/9/14)

This color together with Cocoa Bear, Sensuous, and Mango Tango are the holy grails of MUG brains , in my opinion :-) (Posted on 7/18/14)
Best black eyeshadow ever Review by Taryn
I just bought this eyeshadow, along with a handful of others. Without a doubt, this is the best black eyeshadow I have ever come across. The pigmentation is insane!!! I love it :) The quality of this product is so amazing, it almost feels like a steal, for the price you pay!
Highly recommended purchase :) (Posted on 7/10/14)
So conflicted on this color Review by alyssa

Intimidated Review by Chex
So So So black..... I haven't used corrupt on my eyes yet because it is such a fierce black it intimidates me so much. There are silver sparkles but they are very subtle and I think it adds a nice glow. I think I need to practice a bit more before being game enough to try it on my eyes! (Posted on 7/9/14)

SO BLACK ITS INSANE Review by Megan
Literally one light swatch and my finger is black as can be. Blackest black I have ever tried in my life! Definitely my favorite black eyeshadow. (Posted on 6/11/14)
Supa Black! Review by Paula
This is the blackest black out there. I have several blacks and this one just moved to the top of my list. The sparkle is there but as stated very subtle. I will say that it feels a bit dry and chalky in the pan, but mattes are difficult to formulate... even though it doesn't "feel" great when I swipe my finger in the pan, the color pay off and blend-ability are still really amazing. When I swatched it on my arm it was nice and opaque with lots of color payoff... and with no primer. I can't even tell you how black this shadow is. Great product. (Posted on 6/8/14)
Blackest black Review by Tracey
Want the blackest shadow ever? Well...you found it. Just lightly touch your brush to this shadow and that is all you will need. Seriously. It is that black and that pigmented. I will never purchase a black shadow from any company other than MUG but this black is going to last me until my children have children. Best on the market and worth more than what you will pay. MUG shadows are the foundation of my collection and for good reason. :) (Posted on 5/22/14)
Best black shadow ever Review by Ingvill
This eyeshadow is insanely pigmented! You barely have to dip your brush into it to get enough shadow on it. It will last me for years. And: it's the blackest black eyeshadow I have ever tried! I will definitely buy more MUG eyeshadows. (Posted on 5/13/14)

Most AMAZING black eyeshadow EVERRR! Review by Tyler
OMG! Can you just say AMAZING?! I have been searching for the perfect matte black eye shadow for a very long time, many recommended M.A.C Carbon, and I must say I was so disappointed with the pigmentation of this shadow, didn't really care for it at all. Urban Decay has really good blacks, but they don't come close to this I have heard so much about Makeup Geek and knew I didn't to give it a shot. When I got Corrupt and swatched it, I was AMAZED. The pigmentation is unreal, I have never found a black this incredible. It is just amazing, nothing bad I can see. At first I thought the fall out was bad, however I have learned with this shadow that a little goes a LONG way, and since then I have not had fall outl I am in love with Makeup Geek products, Just amazing if not better, compared to M.A.C. I will be getting a lot more products from Makeup Geek! (Posted on 4/21/14)
Too much fallout!! Review by Alisha
This eyeshadow is very pigmented but I can't handle the amount of fallout throughout the day that happens after applying it. And then because it is so pigmented tiny black dots get smudged all over my face and will not come off until I remove my makeup. Be very careful when applying this shadow because I just can't seem to make it work for me. (Posted on 4/9/14)

The best black there is Review by Teagan
Everyone has already raved that this is the blackest black powder you can get. So I am just going to comment that it is also very long, lasting and high quality. I use to line my eyes in many different ways and I have converted many friend using black Gel to this instead. It stays in place all day, even on the waterline and doesn't irritate in the slightest. (Posted on 3/1/14)
Super Pigmented... Best Black Shadow. PERIOD! Review by Ariana
Got my Corrupt shadow a few months ago and have just started using it since I finished my MAC Carbon eyeshadow. So much more pigmented than MAC Carbon but for some reason my Corrupt shadow has tiny sparkles in it. Formula is nice and smooth as well, slightly powdery. Still the best black shadow I have ever had and the sparkles do not show up very much at all when the color is packed on. Will definitely purchase another one when I finish this one, which may be awhile since the shadow is so pigmented! (Posted on 2/9/14)

What can I say that hasn't already been said. These eye-shadows are just amazing, they aren't chalky at all they are smooth blend like butter highly pigmented. The quality is just fantastic and the price, well I don't know how she does it.
This colour is the blackest black I have ever seen. I don't know of a colour that comes close to this without being so chalky and I still haven't found one as pigmented. I cannot wait to buy more! (Posted on 12/4/13)

Shades of black Review by Elaine
No, all black is not the same, thus is the deepest most beautiful black I have ever seen. Can sheer it, use a liner or dramatic deep black. I love all of my shadows by Make up Geek - creamy, buttery saturated colors. I also love supporting a small company. Never disappointed with the product or customer service

Easier than liner Review by Katie

everything i wanted in a fierce black shadow! Review by andres
I'm one of many Corrupt shoppers who stumbled across this fabulous shadow by researching blackest shadows & read lots of great comments about MUG. Loving that I could double this shadow as a liner w/ an angled brush! Cat eyes, a little blended shadow or even raccoon eyes- I'm so set! Yes, I have tried Carbon by MAC & Black Out by UD, but MUG's Corrupt takes the cake & crown! Keep the low prices & I may be a devoted customer. Also, include no animal ingredients to your cruelty-free statement! (Posted on 2/21/13)
WOW!!!! Review by alicia
this is by far THE blackest eyeshadow i own! it's much more pigmented than Urban Decay "black out" eyeshadow and MAC "carbon" i did swatches to compare all colors, hands down MUG corrupt wins! way more darker and intense! and the eyeshadow itself is so smooth and blends so nice, for that classic smokey eye! i love it! thank you MUG!!!!! (Posted on 2/12/13)
Wow..... Just wow! Review by Cas
Came across refrence to this randomly in web-search as 'the blackest of blacks' and found only available from US (I'm in UK). Price was good so I thought I'd try it, expecting possible long delays due to customs (and possibly extra charges).
Ordered on the 1st and arrived on the 6th - superb!
And the shadow - Amazing... sooo black compared to naything I've tried before. Really happy... and now need to start looking at getting another (and possibly more colours!)
Couldn't be happier - Thanks MUG team! (Posted on 11/6/12)
darkest pigmented black I've come across Review by mindy
I thought this was going to be a dupe for Urban Decay's black eyeshadow from the Naked 2 palette. I can't even think of the name right now because Corrupt is seriously corrupt, LOL. Like I believed that this was going to be something totally different than it is.
I should've looked closer to the picture of it being compared to the mac color because I can see where they are similar.
Yes this is the blackest black I've ever come across. Deeper and blacker than the urban decay black, and most definitely deeper and darker than mac's CARBON.
Holy moly this is so pigmented that after swatching and trying to rub it off with a towel it doesn't come off. you need like more than water and soap. you'll need actual make up remover.
It's crazy how dark this eyeshadow is because it's much darker by one level I would say to the black eyeshadow from UD naked 2 palette. It's seriously crazy...
The thing that got me was there are flecks of shimmer. not exactly shimmer, but I mean I don't know what else to call it because it's not a completely flat matte black color. It's more matte than it is shimmer that's for sure. The little glittle flecks don't bother me and don't effect the color at all either. It's just a crazy hard to explain BLACK true black color.

Highly Pigmented Deepest Black Review by Stacey
M.A.C.'s Black Tied has been my go-to black for the last 8 years. I used to have to layer it to get the deeply pigmented black I got from MUG's Corrupt with ONE swipe of my brush. I accidentally over-applied the first time I used it because I was not used to this soft, highly-pigmented formula. I have to say that MUG has a long-term customer in me, and I'm highly impressed with the quality of the shadows regarding lasting power, pigment, texture, and fantastic value for the price. I'm definitely sticking with MUG's Corrupt from now on! LOVE! (Posted on 10/5/12)

Makes MAC's Carbon look GRAY! Review by Cynthia
This is the blackest of the black when it comes to eyeshadows. It is so richly pigmented and beautifully intense. However, it must be used carefully because fallout could ruin your foundation.

Incredible Review by Anne-Sophie d'Aïnhoa
First of all, sorry for my poor english but I'm french;)
I'm very thankful to Marlena and her brand Makeupgeek for this eyeshadow, which is perfect : it's very, very pigmented and keeps its intensity througout the day!
I used it for my wedding instead of eyeliner : the hairdresser was very, very late and I had no more time to apply eyeliner (I don't get used with it and I was afraid of making a big mistake...) But Corrupt is a real eyeliner (I used also Moondust). For the evening, I wanted a different makeup, a smoky but the photographer was... late! I had no time anymore and I used more Corrupt and I get a glamourous look. Thanks Marlena!! (Posted on 4/30/12)
AMAZING Review by Kristen
This is one of my go to blacks. It is very similar to MAC's Black Black Pigment. So dark and smooth. It does have a lot of fallout if you aren't careful and being SO pigmented and black you need to be careful. Makes an AMAZING eyeliner and it definitely MY FAVORITE of all of them which is weird cause it is black lol. You can definitely deepen a look if you use it with a light hand or use it to be super dark as a liner, smokey eye whatever you want. It is so much darker than MAC's Carbon or Black Tied. I use it probably 5-6 times a week and it is amazing :) Do not hesitate on this one! No complaints it is perfect! (Posted on 4/24/12)
sooo pigmented! Review by Cassandra
I've been searching for a really pigmented black for a long time, and my search is finally over. I was a little startled at first how far so little goes, you only need the teeniest bit on your brush for a lot of black. This single pan will surely last you ages, even if you're doing smokey eyes every day. (Posted on 4/20/12)

THE black for a smokey eye! Review by Sandra JT
I've tried many black shadows for creating a smokey eye, but NONE have compared to this one. Unbelievably pigmented, creamy in texture, smudges incredibly, and makes a killer liner wet as well. This is the only black eye shadow that I absolutely LOVE. I've tossed all my other ones, including a black MAC shade that looks pathetic next to this one. (Posted on 2/2/12)

Back In Black Review by Leslie
Ok girls, forget the "Men In Black" now it's the "Girls In Black". And we are definitley, "Back In Black"! This takes the color black to a whole new level and a bold intenisty like you have never known. Get ready, this matte eyeshadow has a payoff like you have never seen before. But beware, a little goes a long way. (Posted on 1/26/12)
Wow...!!! Review by laine
I just received my shipment of make up geek shadows. It is everything I expected it to be. Soft, creamy, blendable and very rich!!! I absolutely LOVE IT. All you need is a little with this color. Suuuuper dark and yet soooo blendable. The colors are very easy to work with and the price just makes it that much better. This is definitely if not the best, one of the best quality shadows I've come in contact with. I will be purchasing more for sure. Thank you Marlena!!!! (Posted on 1/23/12)
Be Light Handed! Review by Jazmin
Most Pigmented black ever!! I'm used to trying to pack on the black eyeshadow to get it to the amount of black i want, but now i bearly need to touch the pan to get an intense black colour - fantastic!! (Posted on 1/22/12)
Superb! Review by Stephanie86NL
Amazing matte black eyeshadow! I was totally blown away by the pigmentation. Its even more black than UD blackout everybody was raving about! One light dip with the brush and youre good to go. Minor downside: this is a really soft eyeshadow so make sure to push your brush in gently. Other than that SUPERB!!!

The blackest eyeshadow!! Review by Linda
Cudos to you Marlena for coming up with the blackest blackest black in the makeup world. Took me a couple of tries before I could get right without having a mess. I can use this as black eyeliner without wetting my brush.
You done good, Girl! (Posted on 1/4/12)
Daaaang! Review by Jillian
This is it. THE ultimate black. Intense pigment, great for creating a sultry smokey eye. It only takes a gentle dab of your brush into the pan for crazy awesome color payoff! It's just SO BLACK and I can't get over it. I will never use any other black eyeshadow again! (Posted on 12/31/11)
Blackest black ever! Review by Mariella
I had not, until now, been able to find a black that wasn't pulling blue on me but this one - OMG, blackest black EVER. Totally matte, totally opaque, extremely pigmented yet can still be blended. Mac Carbon looks greay neart Corrupt!!
Note: it looks like there are tiny specs of sparkle on the top of the shadow but this is NOT shimmer, the e/s definitely applies matte and once the top layer is gone, you don't see those specs anymore.

I touched my brush to the shadow ONCE and I had to use more browns to cover up the black cuz it was too dark!! This color is Sooooo potent...its easy to get carried away. Its not a bad thing at all, just have to get used to it!! Ha ha!! (Posted on 12/22/11)
Blackest black Review by meghan
This is incredibly pigmented! Make sure to flick your brush off before applying to the outer v, otherwise you might end up with a seriously black look! I haven't used a shadow as liner in years (and when I did, I always wet the brush)... This is so unbelievably black, using it dry with a small angled brush gives the same effect as a black liner... Love it (Posted on 12/19/11)
It is a matte shadow, not shimmer Review by Karen
In response to Dianna: Corrupt IS a matte shadow. There seems to be a few minor specks of sparkle in there, but it won't be considered a shimmer shadow. So if someone is looking for a top-end matte black, I'd recommend corrupt (Posted on 12/18/11)
Amazing pigmentation Review by Karen
With one swatch of this shadow, your jaw will drop. This is the blackest of black shadows out there. Especially for the price. Great job, MUG crew! (Posted on 12/18/11)
