The Neon2 pigments are exactly that–NEON! They are day-glo, super bright, borderline-obnoxious (okay, maybe they ARE obnoxious) in terms of just how much color potency they have. Yes, some of you may feel that these colors actually burn your retnas. I bought all six more or less so that I could review and bring y’all swatches and photos, though I will certainly try a few looks for you. Probably not today, if only because I am not in a “neon” mood, LOL. The texture is matte, but they all remind me of True Chartreuse’s texture–which is a glorious matte.

Swatches courtesy of Jamie!  These make the Neon2 pigments look MUCH more wearable, don’t you think?  I ordered a set yesterday, so I’ll be sure to swatch them for you whenever they arrive (my bet is on Wednesday, unfortunately!).

MAC PRO launched six new neon pigments that are matte in texture! (Thanks to Krasevayadancer for these images!)  Unfortunately, SF PRO is closed for the night (I always order through them, because then the package arrives next day, practically!), but I did call up South Coast Plaza PRO (makes me miss living in Irvine — cause you know your girl would be driving there right now!) to get color names!  Since I own so many pigments, I imagine I’ll probably order them all tomorrow morning.  Whether I’ll wear them is a different story.

What about you?  Would you wear these?
