MAC’s Surf the Ocean Aquamarine pigment

Originally I thought this might be close to BE's High Shine Mist, but this one is a tiny bit darker. Both are pale metallic greens with decent adhesion and application, but this is more green while High Shine Mist is a bit more silvered.

If this color had just a bit more blue in it - if it were a true seafoam green - this would probably be one of my instant favorites. I can use this color, though - I just have to pair it up with a cool-toned color to try and drag this one across the blue line.
