MAC Dew is a very cool-toned, light-medium blue with a satin finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Dew Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "creamy purply blue [with a Satin finish]." It's a bright, light-medium periwinkle blue with a cool, violet tint and a satiny sheen. It had good pigmentation with moderate slip and a light-medium density, so while it glided on without tugging, I can feel the formula move when I press my lips together, so it can be harder to avoid "lines" showing. Despite the slip, it actually applied fairly evenly with very minimal color gathering in lip lines over the four and a half hours it lasted. I did find it yielded a slightly bluish stain.
