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).

This looks so much like Opalesse that I think most people (well, me and probably a lot of others) wouldn’t feel the need to purchase both.

Based on your first pictures, I thought this might be similar to OCC Datura. They’re both described as opalescent lavender with pearl.

Do you like Datura better than Triple Impact? I’m wondering if the iridescence makes Triple Impact more unique or if it’s pretty much the same as Datura.

Thanks for the quick reviews Christine!

Does it compare at at to the pinky shade in the Tom Ford Enchanted Palette?
I missed out on it so am trying to find dupes in single shadows.
