NARS Sin Blush
NARS Sin Blush ($29.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “berry with gold shimmer.” It’s a gold-shimmered plum with a frosted finish. It’s less red, more plum compared to NARS Oasis. MAC Plum Foolery is lighter but similar. MAC Vintage Grape is purpler. theBalm Cabana Boy is similar–perhaps a smidgen lighter.
Sin is like a plummy version of NARS Orgasm, because both of a golden shimmer/sheen that alters the underlying base color. It’s slightly cool-toned, but the golden shimmer adds warmth and makes it appear almost neutral in tone on the skin. It had great pigmentation, so it should show up well on most skin tones. The texture was soft and finely-milled. The finish is softly frosted on the skin after it is applied and blended out. There was a very, very slight emphasis of pores but it was hardly noticeable and the resulting glowy sheen was luminous without being oily. Sin wore just over eight hours well but started to fade after nine hours on my skin.
