Who wants N Collection swatches? ROP (long)

First of all, let me tell you that I had a ball. I love neutrals, so I would have bought the entire collection if only I had an unlimited budget (ho hum :-) ). If you like color, you'll probably be bored by this collection. The SAs were so sweet and let me make all the swatches I wanted. My review of a few select items are below, followed by pictures of my swatch sheet (on white paper).

Warmed MSF: beautiful brown and gold. Nice bronzer if it doesn't turn orange on me.

Light Flush MSF: This is the one I really wanted, and on my swatch sheet it looks like a pretty pink. When I used a tissue to swatch a larger amount on my arm, it came out really red. Also very glittery. You'll need to use a skunk brush with this one. SA suggested using it more as a blush

Nanogold e/s: yellowish bone color flashes pink. Got this one.

Modest Tone: basic "flesh" tone--matches my skin tone pretty closely (NW20). Got this one.

Sublime Culture l/l: very pretty dark mauvy red but looked dupeable to me

Groundwork paint pot: pretty medium brown. Does not look anything like the swatch on mac website.

4N l/g: reddish brown, looked like a tiny hint of reddish purple. I'm at odds as to whether I like this or not on me.

3N l/s: matches my lips exactly. So...didn't do much for me.

And now the swatches. Please excuse the lighting. I took the pics in my car.
