I don't see these as "Transparent with Glitter".
They look more like a soft, milky, semi-transparent, sometimes pearlecent, plastic.

I think these "new colours" might show a need for Trans colours with values for Alpha, Luminance and Material.
Look at the trans-green Bar 4L and light blue transparent Lightning Bolt part, in the same video review, in the post from New Elementary.

And in the new Trolls sets there's also some parts made of felt or foam.

(I've updated my table above.)

Concerning material, I got one of the fairy-tale books and the book-cover has different surfaces. One glossy one, like the usual parts and partially a bit of a matte finish. Ideally that should be modeled, respectively rendered.

Here is a third opalescent colour, Transparent White Opal, (and lots of new patterned 1x1 tiles)
Interesting part too. Could this be the first part we make using only lo-res prims?

I started drafting it, and had the same thought! the top would perfectly fit the lo res prims :-)

Unless I'm misunderstanding, I would strongly suggest against, since circular primitives represent smooth curves, and this appears to be faceted.

Yes!!! no way to use those prims!

I'd like to resume this thread. BL has new listings:

228 - Satin White
223 - Satin Trans-Light Blue
224 - Satin Trans-Dark Pink
222 - Glitter Trans-Orange

Are these the colors we are looking for?
