    If the lightest shade is a bit lighter than NW15, I shall give it a try. I finally want a foundation that matches, so I have some hope for this one.

    I hope they have NW and NC Matchmaster. One fits all only works to a small extent, but I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    I'm hoping for sheer/light coverage only. With all these extra primers/powders coming out, it will just be too much product and it ends up cakey, IMO. But most importantly, NW and NC shades please.

    Apparently, it comes in 14 shades and it will have SPF 15. Sounds pretty much like the color range of F&B. http://makeupandallthingsnice.blogspot.com/2011/06/macs-soon-to-be-new-release.html

    I can't imagine that they would release a shade lighter than N1/C1 if there are only 14 shades in total. But F&B in White is your best friend for lightening up a too dark foundation.

    hope they have lighter colors for the fair gyals here. Im done looking for foundation after finding mat velvet fromm MUFE

    I also wish they did more neutrals since a lot of mac shades r either too pink or too peach/yello
    NC/NW10 but use Temptu airbrush with a little white mixed in pod

    Make Up Priorities: Mascara, foundation, highlight, bright lips, contour (bronzer), blush, wash of color on lids
    Colors: for eyes=>neutral, for lips=>neonish pinks, purple, red, for blush=>peachy, purple

    Me too....I would like to have a MAC foundation in NC 10 because I would love to have a foundation that fits without using F&B white
    everyday.

    Thanks! That's a very unusual ingredient list. It looks like they've taken great efforts to avoid some controversial ingredients they regularly use. I'll get a sample and test it off my face first because there are some ingredients I think I'm sensitive to.

    I have an angled foundation brush and it's good for foundation (especially around the nose) but also for cream/liquid cheek products. I hope it's smaller than the 190.

    i don't actually have a good foundation anymore because mine broke about a year ago... perhaps i shall invest in a new one?

    I'm a total foundation junkie. I mean it's so bad, that I'm too embarrassed to reveal how many foundations I have, even here among other lovely fellow maniacs. But yeah, I'll probably just get this one too, I'm too curious. Oh, and I vote for NC10 too, it is so needed!

    i'm noticing alot of 'cones in there. maybe this will be good for us oily girls who need primers. maybe we can skip a step, for a limited time...

    I only have two - a winter and a summer version, though I usually have a few samples to test out new stuff. Especially my MAC store is quite generous with foundation samples, which last me forever. I'm pretty happy with what I use, so I am mostly excited about a new foundation brush - not that I need one, really ;-)

    oh, I'm curious about the new foundation too. I don;t usually have the best luck with MAC foundations though. The only ones that I like are F&B and Pro Longwear.

    Oh and add me to foundation junkies. I will not reveal how many I have on my dresser, but the number is a lot larger than 5 and that's just my summer shades!

    I'm a bit worried about the increasing number of foundations that have SPF. Don't get me wrong, I am all pro-SPF, but I don't want to double/triple up on SPF. My moisturizer has SPF 20, the new primers will have SPF 35. Why do I need a foundation with SPF 15? I'd rather have the option of choosing between one with SPF and an SPF-free one. It's very important to protect our skin with SPF, however, I don't think that overloading products with SPF is the solution either. The Matchmaster has similar SPF ingredients as the Studiomoisture Tint (Octinoxate), and it slightly stings when I apply it to my face. While I do not worry too much about it, it's certainly discerning.

    SPF's blocking abilities dont overlap or accumulate. you only get the protection of the highest of the products applied. So dont worry about that.

    You misunderstood my post. I am worried about the SPF chemicals that are added to each product. I do not need SPF in every product as it just irritates my skin. SPF in my moisturizer or my primer is enough.
