MAC Dreampot is a slightly cool-toned, light-medium blue with a satin finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Dreampot Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "light candy blue [with a Matte finish]." It's a bright, cyan blue with cool undertones and a satin finish--there was a slight sheen to it. It had good pigmentation with a moderately creamy texture that glided on well and didn't tug on the lips, but it could have applied more evenly. The color seemed to get in some of the lip lines on my lower lips after three hours of wear, though it lasted for nearly five in total. It was neither drying nor hydrating.
