Tornado is described as a “bark eggplant pearl.” It’s a medium-dark, cool-toned purple with violet and eggplant micro-shimmer. It had a more pearly/satiny finish, rather than full-on frost or metallic. It had poor payoff in a single pass, but it layers and builds well to opaque color with three to four passes. It wore well for eight hours before starting to fade. This shade is new and exclusive to the set. Marc Jacobs Th(ink) is cooler-toned. Urban Decay Empire is a touch lighter, warmer. Urban Decay Riot is also similar. See comparison swatches.
