    Is Revved Up a good dupe for Apricot Pink? I mean, can I use Revved Up instead of it with the looks you’ve made using AP?

    Hi there,
    I wanted to send an email straight to you with this question, but am having trouble finding how to do so. I have perhaps an odd question:
    What is the letter and number combination that is on an authentic Pink Opal and an authentic Cornflower pigment. I believe that my sister may have purchased a counterfeit one off of eBay (box sticker says “pink opal” and color/texture of pigment may be this, but jar sticker says “A76 Cornflower” and back of box in the black nearly hidden ink says “A76″) and I don’t really know how to go about finding out this information. I thought that if you didn’t have it, you may be able to point me in a good direction.
    Thanks for any help that you can give me!

    • Hey hun!

      Here’s some info: “MAC has been using a 3-character batch code since the year 2000. To determine when a product was made, you will need to check the batch number, which is printed on the label on the bottom of the jar.

      The first character represents which run the item was made, the second character represents the month, and the third character represents the year.

      Thusly, B54 means the second run on May 2004.”

      Usually to determine fakes, pictures are the easiest way.

    I’m new to pigments. Would you recommend buying rushmetal, revved up, mauvement or are they really chunky and difficult to apply.
