We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Nanogold is such a pretty color but did anyone else find it kind of chunky? It didnt seem to go on very smoothly when I swatched it, just fell off in chunks. I even went to another MAC to test theirs out and same thing. So I passed, which is to bad because it is so pretty. Anyone else have trouble?

I am completely in love with Light Flush! Thanks for the new swatches too!

You know, I didn’t find it chunky personally, but I have heard a few others mention it. You may end up having to scrape off the top layer :/ I notice that colors like this tend to do it – Rite of Spring, Motif; two similar colors that have a chunkiness to their top layers.

At the store, Nanogold went on like a dream, though… It may be because there’s been an accumulation of oil from people swatching it with their fingers, too!

I encountered the same thing, but I did’nt have the word to describe it. Once at home I tried it again and was a little better. It is a gourgeous color though and I could not pass on it!!! he he he

Light Flush is more like a cross between Northern Lights and Stereo Rose, but with a very fine texture. Northern Lights was said to be a bit chunky.

Some said a couple days ago that neutral pink looked exactly like an existing colour minus the shimmer…would you know what that colour was? Thanks doll!!!

I swatched Neutral Pink on my NC20 skin, went home and played with my current colors….it swatched identical to Zeal, which was a Velvet in the Technicolor collection (2006). In the pan they look nothing alike, but on my hand I couldn’t tell the two apart. The only difference was shimmer. But I find that somehow when I apply Velvets the shimmer disappears. Lemming gone as I don’t need two of the same color! HTH!

I don’t know of a permanent color that would really look the same to me! I think NARS’ Brazil eyeshadow duo, the pink, is close.

Mink Pink or Quarry, both I think are sort of similar.
Also, Light Flush I couldn’t justify although it’s beautiful, since I already have Margin, Springsheen, and Refined Gold Bronzer- so I could totally fake it.
So far I’ve used Neutral Pink with Cranberry and Sketch with Shroom and it’s really grown on me. I hate pink, so that’s saying something.

I got neutral pink and medium light skin finish. The warm flush made my pores look really big so i passed on it. other than that i love the new stuff. Thanks for the swatches!
