I promised you guys side-by-side swatches of the 2005 Stereo Rose and the 2010 version, and I just wanted to let you know where I was with that.
One of my favorite local MAC artists has been with the company for a while, and she offered to lend me her 2005 version… forgetting that she’d given it to her sister, who lives in Seattle. Â A second artist overheard us discussing it, and offered to lend me hers… but she can’t find it either.
I think I’ve lined up a guest swatcher to photograph both (she says she doesn’t think there’s a difference), but I realized I also had something in the archives to tide me over.
Back in late 2008, the utterly amazing Memememe photographed and swatched her personal collection of every MSF ever made (at that time). She’s ~NC25 (a little darker than I am) and her pictures were taken indoors, but her Stereo Rose swatch definitely looks more pink than mine.
I also saw comparison swatches on The Beauty Look Book today and Lina reached the same conclusion: that the older version was perhaps a bit more pink and the new one is a bit more coral.
Do you think this color just swatches differently on different skintones? Â Or do you think there’s a difference?
If I get any more information on the subject, I’ll post it!
