Temptalia's swatches of crew are beautiful! http://www.temptalia.com/mac-crew-highlight-powder-review-photos-swatches
She says the beige part is an overlay
The colour is lovely, although I'm not sure I like it on her skin tone. I think it might be a nice "warmer upper" for pale, cool complexions. Also, it does look more matte/ powdery compared to the rest of her skin, which is more golden and glow-y. I like it, but I wonder if I don't already have something that would be just as good- or could find something permanent somewhere else that would give the same effect.
I think I remember that you're in Canada. I typically get the product delivered before the shipping notice. I've been told before that they're slow to update the website. When I spoke to MAC Canada this morning, they told me that they were releasing last night's web orders today (I should receive it tomorrow since I'm nearby).
+1 on what Audrey said. I've actually had online orders arrive at my door and the next time I looked at my computer, I've seen the Fed Ex confirmation followed by Mac's shipping confirmation. Fed Ex tends to work so fast that most other companies can't keep up, so their receive, ship and deliver by the time their customers have the chance to update information that the goods have been shipped. Seriously, shipping for Mac to Montreal is like lightning and I've never had an issue.
