I absolutely LOVE this color. It look amazing on my NC35 skin and with my green eyes. It is a color that you have to build up, or else it won't look as well, but it's worth the work that it takes to layer it! I hope they come out with it again soon, because I want another one!

I bought this product a while ago but never really use it. For me, this shade isn't very wearable and I can't manage to pull it off without looking completely crazy :D

This got some mixed reviews with the MUA family so I had t try it for myself. I must say that I enjoy the fact that I can build up the intensity and if I want to be really dramatic (I'm an NC 45/50). I use aquadisiac in my inner eye corner. Maybe the UD eyeshadow primer pucks up the color a lot of users said that it lacked. If it wasn't being discontined, I would definaltly repurchase!

Nice turquoise color. It's not too bright but definitely adds a fun pop of colour. I wish it was shimmery, but it's a satin finish so its pretty much matte. It's nicely pigmented and smooth

I got my Haunting from the artist collection.
I really like Haunting. It doesn't give much colour at first but I like to layer it over Aqua and it looks really lovely.

I'm really happy with this color, it's what I wanted Aquadisiac to be, a light turquoise color, not very pigmented though

I was honestly about to write a bad review on this, then I forgot. I should try it with Fix+. Strenghtened the shadow, beautifullly! I recommend you buy this shadow, try it at home, and if you don't like it, return it. To get the color to work I applied UDPP, then I took a flat shader brush and wiped 3 times on the pan, took Fix+ and sprayed twice on the brush then packed the color on my eye. It was GORGEOUS, I tell you. Definitely try this method. I was about to return the shadow, but trying this made me want to keep it. Bottom Line: I would buy this again.

I missed out on the original release of this color, so I was excited when I saw that it was being released again. I'm not sure if perhaps some bought from a bad batch but I have absolutely no complaints with this eyeshadow. The texture is fantastic, the color is beautiful and it blends easily.

This IS a beautiful color in the pan. As many have said, the color payoff is just pathetic.
I saw this on the Mac site, not knowing about the Alexander McQueen release, and wanted to see if anyone had reviewed it yet - I was crushed at all the negative reviews. You see, I LOVE blue eyeshadow. I WANT it and I will WORK with it to make it great. So I went to the Mac counter to try it out, convinced that primer would help.
It doesn't. I swatched - HARD - and got just a dark greenish smudge on my hand. (It's robin's egg blue in the pan.) I put Painterly on my hand, added Haunting and.... blotchy greenish smudge. Huge disappointment.
I bought Crest the Wave instead.

This is such a beautiful color. IT goes on great and it blends so well. The only thing is that you have to keep layering it on for the color desired. This was a limited edition item but now it is relaunched in the new Make Up Artist Cosmetics collection. This color looks great with cool heat! The colors play off each other so well. Just add haunting to the inner third of your eye, then add cool heat to the rest. Then put carbon or black tied on your outer V and you have a beautiful dramatic eye that is perfect for a night on the town! It is simply gorgeous and you will get many compliments!!

I was psyched to see that this shade was re-released with the Make up art cosmetics collection for fall 2009. I missed out on in the first time it came around with the McQueen collection. Bummer. Although, I must agree with many of the others that this shadow is hard to apply unless you use a primer and rub hard, I say, I do that already anyways. Without primer, it's hard to get product to apply or stay on your lids long. I also sometimes use a sheer cream shadow as a base and it shows up wonderfully. I got two of these. Haunting is somewhat similar to the Mutiny pigment, but ever so slightly more green and satin finish instead of highly frosted. I love greens, blues and icy/metal colors, so I may be a bit biased. Haunting is awesome and worth checking out.

I really like this. I apply this with a really dense sephora brush and I get really good colour payoff. I'm an NC30. I really have nothing to complain about, I've used it numerous times. I was a little shocked to see the reviews...if you're using a fluffy brush to apply this, forget it! Use either a sponge applicator or super dense, flat brush to pat this on your eyelid.

Just as bad as the Pagan eyeshadow I bought. It's a beautiful light blue in the pot but good luck trying to get any to show up on your skin. I tried this with mixing medium also but got no good results.

The pigmentation of this shadow definitely isn't the best, especially by MAC standards. I have to really layer it on to get decent color to show up on my NW15 skin. It's a beautiful robin's egg blue color in the pot, but if you want that to be the color that shows up on your lids you just have to be patient and layer layer layer. It's a lot easier to use with its matching paint pot in Otherwordly. Of all the McQueen powder shadows this one has the worst pigmentation. I still adore it because the color is so beautiful, but MAC could have done better. I doubt I'd repurchase.

This color is extremely pretty in the pot, but was such a HUGE disappointment. Very poorly pigmented, hard to get any color to show. I would have loved this if only it would show up! Without a paint pot, this color is useless. In fact, the otherworldly paint pot by itself is really all you need. So disappointed!!!

I just recently tried this and I guess I will be one of the few that like it. Perhaps it's the skintone that makes or breaks this color because on my fair toned friend, it didn't show up well. But on me, an NC35, it turned out to be a more vivid and tad bit tealer version of the Sugar Blue in my Sweetie Cakes quad (which for me is on the sheer side). It's very similar (less green) to Eleanor by Taylor Made minerals. I don't find it chalky nor to I have to work hard to get a great color payoff so I honestly think this color would be better for darker gals. I didn't really care about it being a McQueen, I'm just a sucker for teals and greens. I have gotten compliments from my mate and my friend. I will definitely be using this often! :)

This was so disappointing. Lovely in photos but when I applied it the texture was chalky and uneven and the color totally unwearable. Yes, I knew it would be a bit theatrical but it looked just like cheap shadow from Maybelline.

I am so disappointed in this eye shadow. I love the colour in the pot, and because I like other MAC eyeshadows, I thought it was a no-brainer. Unfortunately, the colour fades in no time at all, so that by lunch time there was only a pale wash left and it looked green over my yellow toned skin. That always happens when I use cheaper eyeshadows in blue, but I didn't expect it to happen with MAC. I willl try it again with my Udpp under it, but if that isn't any good still, I'll only wear this when I go out to a film or play-when I know it only has to last for a couple of hours. Save your money.

I have to agree with the other reviewers on this shadow. Chalky, not pigmented at all. This is a limited edition shadow from the Alexander McQueen Collection released Fall 2007. (October i think). This shadow collection consists of three pot shadows and three cream shadow pots in a bright cornflower blue, a limey green and a matte pastel-like aqua. Haunting is a matte looking pastel pale aqua. Seemingly pretty in the pan, but really doesnt show up on the lid. Its too chalky and not pigmented, If you keep layering it, you get a soft pale aqua, but not like the color in the pot. Retails for $13.50 and comes in the standard MAC flip top black pot but with Alexander McQueen logo over the lid. Would not repurchase.

This was limited edition with the October 2007 Alexander McQueen collection. It is a chalky light blue with a Satin finish. It provides very little color on its own, but it looks nice over the accompanying paint pot. I would recommend you get the paint pot, and find a similar MAC color to put over it instead of this one,
