Here's my take:
If you are a new collector of MAC makeup- you might want to grab a few things. You have free range as the shades are very close.
Honorable mentions: Nanogold (a pretty gold lustre with Motif or Dazzlegold-like iridescence), Neutral Pink (on a brown beauty's lid, it reminded me of Yogurt, a permanent fav), 1N lipstick (a glaze with pink and gold shimmer and iridescence. Fab if you need a good frost in your collection. I use Gel l/s to lighten dark colors that I'm not comfortable with. If I didn't have it, I would have 1N l/s.)
Standing ovations: MSF's (the highlighters). If you are a fan of MSF's or have become recent fans of them, pick them up! If you have an extensive collection of blushes, pass on them. (**see Edit)You really can combine a color or two to make the same outcome, but these to me are a bit warmer in color. My other MSF's have great sheen and color, but present a gray cast if packed on too heavily. I wouldn't have the same problem with these.
Now, ladies, if you hold your C-thru lipglass close to the heart, I have one better: 1N lipglass!! Move over C-thru and Viva Glam 5! I know that's saying a lot, because I absolutely love VG5, but it is a fleshy nude compared to the new 1N. I love it!!
**EDIT: 1N lipglass is much better than C-thru, but VG5 stands as the #1 lipglass! =) I wore the lipglass for the remainder of the day and checked it out later. It really is nude, but VG5 has that flesh color with subtle gold shimmer that works well everytiime.
MSF Warm- not very much shimmer. A more refined powder, almost a satin bronzer. I like it a lot, but it really just adds warmth and not the glitter, shimmer, and sheen we are used to with the other MSFs. This is a nice powder for natural radiance/highlighting on brown skinned beauties.
MSF Light Flush- Holy cow!!! This is a real winner and if you pick up anything (granted you already own any MSF naturals) this is the item. This is from someone who only started collecting them with the Amuse Collection (circa 2005?) It is pink with gold/orange shimmer iridescence. You will really have a wonderful glow with this one! When you look at it in the pan, you may think Northern Lights from the Flashtronic collection, like I did. However, Northern Lights is a peachy pink, but more of a subtle peach compared to Light Flush. Light Flush is hot if you are into color, and not just subtle natural cheek/highlight colors. This is brown girl friendly!! Don't pass on this**
