MAC Triple Impact Extra Dimension Eyeshadow
MAC Triple Impact Extra Dimension Eyeshadow

MAC Triple Impact Extra Dimension Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as an “opalescent lavender with violet pearl.” It’s a cool-toned lavender with a frosted finish and lavender shimmer. MAC Amethyst is warmer and much more sparkly. OCC Datura is very similar in color but has a smoother sheen. MAC Light Voilet is pinker and has larger sparkles.

This shade had sheer color when applied dry, and when applied damp, the color was buildable to semi-opaque payoff–noticeably translucency but a fair amount of color. With enough patting and packing on of the color, mostly opaque color is possible. It had a slightly dry consistency, and I actually felt this shade was not as soft or as blendable as the others–it tended to stick in places, especially when I used it damp. If I applied it dry, then it was more blendable, but it was so sheer that it was hard to get really even color. When I wore Triple Impact, it wore for six hours well, but it was slightly faded after seven hours (but it’s only marketed as six-hour wear).

I wish this had a softer, more blendable texture, because it's a sheerer shade and really needs to have that blendability. Plus, the iridescent quality makes it a shade you'd be inclined to layer over other products, where you definitely want to be able to blend it in!
