MAC Cooler-Toned Purple Eyeshadows Photos & Swatches

MAC Cooler-Toned Purple Eyeshadows

Beautiful Iris is described as a “lavender with sheen [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].”  It’s a light-medium, lavender purple with cool, undertones and a soft, frosted finish. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Digit is described as a “soft violet with subtle pearl [with a Satin finish].”  It’s a light, muted lavender with cool undertones and a pearly sheen.  See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Indian Ink is described as a “deep eggplant [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark, cool-toned purple with a matte finish. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Parfait Amour is described as an “blue-violet with shimmer [with a Frost finish].” It’s a medium, bluish-purple with an iridescent, pearly sheen. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bonus:

These two shades are no longer available on MAC’s website, but since they were in my “permanent” palettes and were re-photographed and swatched, I’m including them below (maybe one of the dupes will be helpful!):
Graphology is a deep, dark, muted purple with cool undertones and a matte finish.  See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Purple Haze is a muted, medium purple with a matte finish and subtle, cool undertones. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

What’s Swatch Saturday? I can’t always review products with full, in-depth reviews, but sometimes, I can at least give you photos and swatches, and then also provide a link to dupes and comparisons for those interested! This also helps us to build up our Swatch Gallery and add even more entries to The Dupe List, which can be helpful to readers at any point.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Purple looks so pretty on a lot of people.. seen it uncountable times in videos and tutorials but somehow I am just not sold on it!

I’m a dark, warm toned child so I tend to avoid cool toned colors. However, I’m curious about Parfait Amour and I have no dupes for it in my collection.

Too much purple going on for me (not really my colour) – wouldn’t want to look like I’ve been the victim of a vicious mugging!

YaY! Some of my FAVORITES! I’m adding Laven-duh! DC, but a Gem! Oh, I love MAC PURPLES! YaY! I could go on with these & greens, and duochromes, heck.. Let’s play with colors! (I realized today that most people confuse Bronze with Copper.. I’m guessing due to slang
summer tanning talk..?.,.)

Gosh, I love all of these colours! :-O So pretty, I love purple so much!! 😀 perhaps especially the last three here…

These are all so pretty, I think I’m going to have to pick the first two up since I don’t have anything similar. For some reason I can’t see the swatch to Graphology or Indian Ink though. :/

Used to wear these kind of shades all the time. It was always purples or greens. Haven’t used them in years and not sure why. This inspired me to pull them out of my stash and try using them again.

I keep staring at Purple Haze. I do not have it. 🙁
I can’t believe I do not have Indian Ink or Graphology…wth? Going on list.
Purple how I love theee

Hmm. Not my favorite shades. I like Purple Haze out of these, but otherwise they’re too light and cool toned to suit me. I was trying to figure out why they were all so likely to look powdery on me, and then I saw it was right there in the title. :p

I absolutely adore purples 🙂 MAC do make great purples but MUFE …. ohhhhh you name it and they have it .. some or the other shade for everyone 🙂
my fav purple from MAC would be beautiful iris and i so want to pick DIGIT soon 🙂
i have stopped using eyeshadow for some weird reasons 🙁 🙁 🙁

<3 Purple!! Some of my favs are Creme de Violet, Parfait Amour and Stars n Rockets. Been wanting to try some of the purples from MUFE, they look so fantastic.

Aah thank you for this! I want them all (at least, the ones I don’t already have.) Any recommendations for what to pair these with other than cool taupe or silver? (I’m fair, very cool toned with multicolored eyes that tend green).
