Today I wanted to share with you something I got myself as a Christmas present while vacationing in Louisville this past Christmas. I have always seen NARS Sin blush featured in magazines for Fall and Winter makeup looks and have always admired the color. It is a berry tone with a gold shimmer, which I was always convinced would overpower my porcelain and redness plagued skin. I must have been feeling brave when I saw this during vacation though because I decided to give this blush a chance and I’m glad I did. With a light hand, this blush is gorgeous.
Sin comes in the standard NARS black, rubberized palette which means it is a dirt magnet. Don’t judge me by my fingerprints!
This berry blush has a slight golden shimmer that is barely perceptible when worn. It is highly pigmented, so a light hand is best. I use my MAC 188 brush and it seems to deposit the right amount of color every time. The color wears for about 10 hours on my cheeks before fading and can last as long as 14 if I use a setting spray.
Sin is a blush I have basically lived in for the past 2 months and I am so glad I bought it and didn’t let my fear of color keep me from it. I think this color would look striking on both deep and fair skin tones and everything in between. After 2 months of wear, the pan still looks brand new, so it will get years and years of use.
