I received my Nacree powder today - it is VERY similar to Modern Mercury, but yes, slightly 'pinker' toned. Interesting about the powder........I would still like to see it.
And I like the shadow as well - but like you, I'm not sure how often I would reach for it, but as a blush it would be interesting.
I should get mine today or Wed. Did you get it from BG? I am glad it is like the EL. I have the Guerlain Cruel Gardinia, LM Rose R , Lancome Holiday and now this. also have EL Tease coming!
I have a HL obsession! lol
