MAC Dream Scene is a very cool-toned, light blue with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $23.00 and contains 0.17 oz.
Dream Scene is a light-medium, silvery blue with cooler undertones and a frosted sheen. The pigmentation was just so-so, which I expect is a result of the really emollient, thinner consistency, so it was very prone to sheering out and looking somewhat uneven. It was best as a sheerer wash of color or used as a base underneath powder eyeshadows. On its own, the color wore well for 12 hours, which is great wear but shy of the 15 hours claimed.
