Why did I wait so long to try this?! Years ago (many wrinkles ago!) I used Orgasm and loved it with my dark auburn hair, but as I aged it just looked wrong on me. My hair turned silvery and makeup with too much shimmer just accented my skin's imperfections. So, I always passed Sin by because I noticed shimmer. And frankly it doesn't look that pretty in the pan, sort of dull. However, I love blush and find it the one thing that really perks up my aging (54 years old ) face. I am an NW20, but with weird coloring. My skin is coolish/neutral but I can easily wear some warmish toned blushes, but the real problem is that I have strange, purplish, highly pigmented lips which contrast with the blushes that look good on me. A few weeks ago during a Christmas shopping trip I went into Sephora looking to treat myself and a new blush is a cheap thrill. I looked at the different NARS blushes, and Sin didn't really catch my eye. The SA told me it looked different on and swiped some on my cheeks. Awhile later while I was shopping I caught a glimpse of myself in a mirror and loved it! It's perfect! Went back and bought it and have worn it every day since. It just pulls my whole face together, it's a very natural color for me. I am pretty fair and it is highly pigmented, so I don't need a lot. When it's on, c I don't really notice any shimmer, but I do blend well. BTW it looks very good applied lightly with UD Rapture lippie. I will definitely re-buy because it's the best blush I have worn in many years. I imagine it won't look too good with my summer look, but I'll revisit that in a few months!
