Editor's Review

Scene is described as a "muted blue-grey [with a Satin finish]." It's a dirty gray with neutral undertones and a satin finish. The texture was dry and stiff, so the color payoff reflected that--it was very sheer. It had noticeably faded after six and a half hours of wear. Guerlain Crazy Paris #5 (LE)is darker. NARS Delphes #2 (LE, $24.00) is similar. MAC Interior Life (LE, $15.00) is darker, grayer. MAC All Woman (LE, $15.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches.

MAC Scene is quite an unique grey shade, I was surprised how well this color compliments me (light-medium warn yellow undertone with dark brown eyes and hair, usually cool eyeshadows and brow products look better on me). In the pan or swatched Scene looks more grey, with subtle purple/mauvish tones; on my eyelids is somehow translates to a soft blue grey, more cool than neutral. I personally found MAC Scene to be a good quality eyeshadow. It's easy to pick both with soft and stiff brushes; I didn't find it too dry and stiff, it actually has a bit of kick-off (but no issues with fallout). Applied with a soft blending brush the payoff is quite sheer, but the formula is buildable (especially if using a stiffer brush to pack the color). It's quite easy to blend, but the softer the brush the better (a very dense or packed blending brush might apply a little patchy, but I don't have the best make-up skills). I personally prefer an eyeshadow formula that applies sheer at first, but it's easy to build up; I can use it very blended, almost like a light transition/crease color, or I can pack it on the lid as a grungy all over grey look. The eye shadows stays put all day, not creasing or fading, but I do use very good eye primers (I have oily lids and hooded eyes). Note: The review is for a pro palette refill pan eyeshadow purchased in 2018, batch code traces back manufacturing date to December 2016.

I really, really wish MAC would reformulate this eyeshadow. It's a beautiful cool-toned grey, a colour you don't see a lot of in other brands. Unfortunately, it's patchy on application and a pain to blend. (referring to permanent version)
