Just wondering if the eye shadows are similar to anything in the perm line.or are they something you think are worth buying…before I rush off and make my credit card cry at Mac..Thanks!!!

Hi Rani,

similar colours:
The only colour in the Lipglass that is a little similar is She’s a Star and Instant Gold Lustreglass.

As for the Eye Shadows Creme de Miel = MOTIF,

Pollinator = PARADISCO and

Buckwheat = Mulch


I’m relatively certain I’ve seen that you have those two – how about a side by side swatch with Gleam/Pollinator/Paradisco so that we can see the differences???

I don’t think that Paradisco is a good dupe for Pollinator on myself. My skin will pick up any gold that’s in a product so Paradisco looks very gold on me unless I use the correct base. I don’t have that problem with Pollinator.

yes yes yes my obsessive hitting of “refresh” every 30 seconds for the last few hours finally pays off 🙂 heheheheeh

Now I need the reviews of the perfumes and other products. Hopefully I can take some time to get down to the MAC store later today, I have 70$ left on my Mothers Day gift card to spend! yippeee

I would say golden nectar. I’ve read reviews about it and they say it fits all skin tones. Or was it honey light? The lightest highlight powder : D

Would Golden Nectar work well as a bronzer for lighter skin tones? I am NW15, and I am wondering whether I should get this or Refined Golden.
Thanks for the swatches! 🙂

I would get golden nectar! It is so smooth, almost creamy and has a bautiful sheen when worn on the skin. I find refined golden too orange and glittery for my liking.

I swatched golden nectar on my skin today hoping to use it as a bronzer(I don’t use mac foundation, but I have porcelain skin with no undertones) and it looked way too orange on me to look natural as a bronzer.

It might, but I think it might run a bit orange. It also has shimmer in it, so I’m not sure if you are looking for something more matte!

Hi Brenda,

IMO Nice to Be Nice is more orange and transparent while Queen Bee is a little bit more on the pinkish side.

Hope this helps you:-)

Totally different! Nice To Be Nice has a lot more shimmer/glitter, and it is sooo sheer in comparison to Queen Bee.

I’m possibly might be grabbing Buckwheat (but I think I might get the solar bits from SW instead) and definitely at least trying Buzz l/g


Which highlighting powder would you recommend for me? I am a C3 in the foundation shades with dark brown hair. Im pretty fair skinned.

Lipgloss swatches seem nice thanks. Would it be possible to see them on your actual lips? For some reason, when I see lip products on your actual lips…it’s more…what’s the word….coveting??

Queen Bee looks really orangey, I didn’t expect that at all. Actually, I was so impatient for this collection but now … I just don’t know. Nothing looks as good anymore. Well, I still have a month to decide if I want it or not LOL sometimes it’s good that we have to wait an extra month for the collections.

Would the Golden Nectar Hi-light powder make a good sheer bronzer for a cool-toned girl? I’m fair/med. skin toned, and have med.brown hair. Thanks! 🙂

hiya the MAC website will launch the stuff a day b4 by 1pm so hopefully u can see the stuff online so excited 2 check out the perfume n salve golly the uk is so behind LOL im already makin my list 4 the fall collections LOL ps do u know if mac will bring the MAC skinfinish n shimmer powders back?? n can u tell me which one is good I wear medium plus thanks 4 the information as always christine, xx

How does Buckwheat compare to Tempting? Is there anywhere I can see comparison swatches? I don’t know which I should get with my f&f purchase

Tempting is much cooler-toned. Tempting seems like it has silver flecks, whereas Buckwheat is warmer and has gold flecks.
