This looks like Clear Blue Sky Pigment in a pot w/ lots of silver micro glitter. This is one of those colors I would just LOVE to wear b/c it's so dang pretty in the pot. I've had a hard time getting the nerve to try it. (is it b/c I have blue eyes?). It being so bright and I rather have a warmer effect. I just can't pull this off and don't see myself ever wearing it again. This color would be fantasic for amber brown eyes.

This is the newest addition to my Mac eyeshadow collection. I will only wear this shade at night as it is vey bright blue. I love the shimmer it provides & looks great with peacocky glitter eye liner. I want to try aquadisiac which is said to be more green.

Really nice color and love the silver shimmer, although maybe the tiniest bit gritty. It didnt bother me though, because the color was so rich and awesome. A bright blue, somewhat turquoise but a little softer and without the green.

It's really pretty, but just didn't do it for me. Rough texture, good pigmentation, but it just wasnt unique enough, and was too similar to other colors I own. I swapped it away.

Turquatic is the bluer cousin of Aquadisiac (i.e. Aqua. is greener), or the brighter sister to Sugar Blue (Sweetie Cake palette). It's a refreshing turquoise leaning more on the blue side, with silver sparkles to add to the "cool" effect.
I wasn't going to get this since I have Aquadisiac and the Sweetie Cake palette is on the way, but after swatching Turquatic next to the other two shadows, I felt it was different enough to get. It's sheerer than Aqua., but not by much. I can still get decent colour payoff with it, especially if I use my 213 or 239 brushes. The texture is a bit gritty but it's a lustre, so that's exected. I'd say to apply it first before doing your foundation so you can brush off the slight fallout. I do wish it was in another formula, though, because Purple Shower as a slight translucent quality to it, being a Satin, and Turq. can look a bit cakey next to it (pls mind I don't pack on my e/s cuz it looks like crap on my lids). I've worn it a few times and at this point I'd say I'd buy it again if it weren't LE.

Oddly enough, I like this, and find it to be quite well pigmented and smooth.
There is lots of silver sparkle, but that to me just makes this light aqua shadow look all the more cool and "aquatic." The only reason I gave this a 4 instead of a 5 is that I just don't wear blue or green shadows much, since I have green eyes.
However, I think Turquatic will make a great accent color for summer. I plan to pair it with Sunny Daze pigment for a light-hearted summer look. I like the little round fliptop container in which this shadow comes.I'd buy again if this weren't LE and I used this color more.

I have been buying every MAC shadow for the last few years and its starting to get ridiculous. Colors are simliar and this lustre formula stinks. Limited edition release with the Turquatic collection released July, 2006. Comes in a black flip top pot. Turquatic is a soft glittery aqua. Very pale. Not very pigmented, but will show up if you layer it. The lustre formula is gritty and the silvery glitter flies everywhere. Retails for $13.50. I would have liked a little more pigment to this shade.

A very pretty, light aqua color. It's a Lustre so it has a sheerer formula than the other Mac e/s, but the Lustres work perfectly over Shadesticks. Comparing it to other Mac e/s, it is the lightest aqua color that they have. Aquadisiac is more green, more pigmented & isn't as sheer as Turquatic. Shimmermoss is more of a med toned blue green with a green shimmer. Zonk Bleu is blue green with a blue shimmer. So they are all in the same color family, but not the same colors at all.

I bought this to go with my Delphic fluidline from the Lure collection. It's basically the same shade, except the eyeshadow has NO pigment and has an extremely gritty texture. The silver shimmer is so messy, it gets all over your face. Can't wait to return this!
