Sometime in the past year or so while playing around in Sephora and Nordstrom stores, I started to notice that the Sin blush testers at counters did not look like the Sin I had at home. Similar, yes, but not the same. I started to think I must be crazy (and I think the sales associates did, too, when I mentioned it), so I bought a brand-new NARS Sin about a month ago to compare the two at home.
Here they are, side by side. On the left is the old NARS Sin, and on the right is the new NARS Sin:
I know, I know, they don't look much different. But look at the swatches! Again, old is on the left, new on the right:
I never heard anything about NARS blushes being reformulated. Have you, readers? Do you think this is due to a common reformulation, or has the color changed over the years due to quality control issues (either my old one changing color over time in the pan, or the batches from the factory changing over time because no one is bothering to keep them consistent)? More importantly, which version do you like better? :)
