Beautiful minty aqua color. Can be difficult to work with, but is worth it in the end. You definately want to use a primer with this, and pat (not swipe) it on. Such a nice pop of color without being too 'wow'.

I just got this color yesterday... The color is studding and breath taking for sure. But something about the pigmentation does disturbs me. When the lady who helped me in the store swatched this on her hand, and then on my hand... It was defentliy very pigmented. But when I swatched it at home... It looked pretty poor to me. I used it today on my eyes... The color was strong on the lid after putting a few layers and primer... And it stayed on all day long.
If I'll ever run out of this color... I think I'll try finding a more pigmented dupe...

I do NOT believe my eyes when I read all these good reviews.
This eyeshadow is gritty, not smooth at all, and the colour payoff is HORRIBLE. Truly horrible. I have to SCRAPE this eyeshadow with my nail to get any pigment out - even then it looks awful.
I have uploaded a picture in this gallery to show you how it looks after digging, scraping, and managing to put 5 layers of this eyeshadow over Urban Decay Primer Potion.
Better alternatives are MAC Steamy (more metallic, darker), MAC Surf Baby (darker).

This I love!!! such a pretty mint/aqua color that looks great paired with almost any color, in any placement on the eye. I've had it for about a month now and find myself using it every two or three days, just looks amazing on my dark skin/brwn. eyes. So glad I got a once in a lifetime deal on it otherwise I might have never tried it. Pretty much a DS grab everything I need in one place and go, type of girl, I brought aquadisiac, steamy, gorgeous gold and felt blue all at a yard sale some brand new others swatched, for $1.50US (Gotta <3 Mexico :) I almost had a heart attack when I started looking them over and discovered they were not replicas but the real deal! (I had the girls at Sephora check just to be sure, lol) So keep your eyes open girls/boys' for major steals like this! :D OK story time`s over back to the review, lol. I love the finish, to me its a matte with silver micro glitter. Applies well both wet and dry, the silver glitter does transfer onto the lid and show, no fallout at least for me I use all of my es wet, last and stays true to color all day, most importantly for me and my oily lids anyway...no creasing! Very happy with this color, will repurchase, recommend!

This was the first thing I ever purchased from MAC (along with Electric Eel back in 2005) and I honestly haven't had much use for it. I've been meaning to pair it with a brown and see if I can make it work, but it's, I don't even know how to describe. It's just not that great of a color for me. I feel like it would look best on brown eyes as it sort of washes out my grey ones. I gave it a 4 because it is good quality, and very pigmented, and maybe I'll be able to use this as a highlight color or something eventually.

I love this color as a soft wash over the lid, or packed on as an eyeliner. I recently used it as an eyeliner on my lower lashes (along with black), and it was the perfect unexpected pop of color! It is pigmented, but not too pigmented, so it's a very buildable color. Though it is a shimmery/gilittery, it does not go overboard.

Perfect colour to bring out the teal in my blue/blue-green eyes! goes on easily and easy to blend (though not buttery soft).

This was the first eye-shadow I ever brought from Mac and I love it! It isn't a eye-shadow I wear everyday but its a beautiful colour and because its is from mac it is so pigmented! defiantly the nicest blue or green MAC stock.

I am completely in love with aquadisiac eyeshadow from mac, not only is the color beautiful, but the pigmentation is also amazing. This eyeshadow also looks great when worn wet or dry, wet it looks fantastic as an eyeliner.

Aquadisiac is gorgeous!!! This is one of my favorite mac eye shadows.. The pigmentation is great and it's easy to blend. I usually pair it with my other bright shimmery blue eye shadow from the body shop. Sometimes i line just the top of my eye with brown eyeliner and put aquasidiac as my under-eye eye shadow..

As a stand alone eyeshadow, this maybe isn't the best. It's a slightly minty teal, that for me pulls more green than blue. (The picture of the pan on the cream carpet is most colour accurate imo)
It's not highly pigmented, so will not give you that pop of colour that is usually associated with non neutrals.
However, because of this I find it to be a very wearable 'neutral'. I use it in every day looks because of it's softness, it's a teensy bit more edgy but still sae for day.
The reason why I've given in 5 lippies is because when layered over a dark, softer shadow like Print, this efect created is just stunning.
To be honest print should take a lot of credit here, but still. I like to do a smoky eye with lots of khol and carbon, print, and what have you. And then I'm sitting there thinking, this is all looking very 'blah' and needs some shimmer to give it some dimension... So I add aquadisiac, usually just a sweep from inner to outer third and BAM. It take on the most amazing texture, I really can't describe so have included pic (still does not do it justice). I think maybe I have green in my eyes I'm not sure, but doing this Really makes my eyes pop
basically I have print here, and you can see the sheen and the very light hint of green it gives (inner corner to outer third). It is suprisingly opaque when layered like this, I think it's the glimmer, but it'll really lighten the black.
If you try this or something similar do not hesitate to let me know how it goes. Would be interested to know, good or bad!

I bought this realizing that my eyeshadow collection was in dire need of a shimmery turquoise. Unfortunately the pigmentation isn't that great. Mac should make this color with a satin finish instead.

This is by far the most GORGEOUS turquoise eyeshadow in existence. The color is beautiful. The finish is also lovely. Alas, I can no longer wear MAC eyeshadows because they irritate my eyes. :(
I hate it because I love the pigmentation, the finish, and the blendability. If MAC shadows do not bother your eyes then GET THIS COLOR!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brown, Curly, Medium Eyes: Brown
This is one of my fave colors. It can be paired nicely with so many colors, purples, blues etc. . I love the vibrancy of color it brings to my lids. A lot of people are afraid of blues this one should get your foot in the door.

This colour is gorgeous and completely buildable! Like most MAC es's it blends easily and has nice pgimentation. It looks beautiful paired with Freshwater. If you're looking to add some colour to your collection I recommend checking out this e/s!

I wanted a turquoise eyeshadow that was the perfect balance of blue-green, which is very hard to find. I searched high and low and was torn between haunting, aquadisiac, and shimmermoss. Haunting turned out to be too blue and shimmermoss was too green. My searched has finally ended with aquadisiac which is, in my opinion, the perfect balance! Some people say that it looks blue on me and others say that it looks green. Either way, it really makes my eyes pop! I just wish that it was more pigmented.

Honestly, with the primer I use (MAC Stilife paint), and my brush (Sephora #23), I have no problem getting this color and pigmentation to stay! I do get a bunch of fallout though, which is annoying. Other than that, this color is so fun! The teal mixed with the silver-y shimmer is great and it blends well with Overgrown and even Electric Eel (I toss some shimmer powder on over it though, to even out the fact that Electric Eel doesn't really have a shimmer). It's fun to experiment with and I love wearing it with Carbon, too.

Aquadisiac is such a beautiful aqua color with glitter in the pan, but it's really hard to get it to show up the same on my eyes. It helps to wear a white base like NYX jumbo pencil in Milk. I like to wear it all over my lid with Freshwater, Steamy, Newly Minted, or Black Tied in the crease. I love the color I just wish it was more pigmented.

This is a very pretty aqua color. Looking at it in the pan, I would have said it's a very close dupe to the NYX eyeshadow in 'Jade', but when I put it on the Aquadisiac seemed to be more flattering with my skin and hair color. It's a very soft blue-green, in my opinion not as dark as the NYX shade, which is good at least for me.

This is a really pretty color - goes great on the inner 1/3 of the eye, with Nylon in the center and Stars 'N Rockets on the outer 1/3.
I have yet to try it, but I think it would be great smoked out with carbon.
-The color payoff isn't great (so use a primer and pack it on to build it up)
-I get a lot of glitter fallout from it
