Question What mutation is my new budgie?

Hello, again! I figured while I was finding out what mutation my original budgie is, I might as well find out what my new budgie is! This is Dusty. I think Dusty is a girl, but after finding out that Widget is a boy I no longer trust my instincts.

This is a non-flash photo; her cage is next to a lamp

Unfortunately that photo was taken with my phone, and is of low-quality.
Here is a higher quality pic. Unfortunately the lighting is bad ...

is your mauve a pied? Because I'm thinking that maybe the "yellow" in the yellow-face is what's making Dusty the color of the ocean.

Yes my Mauve is a Dominant Pied.

So with dusty.. She is normal green, but the yellow face
has bled into it, making it look a grey-ish green or something?

I honestly have no idea. I thought grey-green at first as well, but when you see pictures of grey-greens they just look like this dark, muddy green color (like an olive). Maybe mauve on top of green does this? Can that even happen? I'm not exactly great with budgie mutations.
