Today I have swatches of the Made in France version of Brun Sortilege 21 and the Made in USA version of Brun Sortilege – Sorceress 21.
They could be from fall 1999, maybe older or slightly younger, but I have not been able to verify it!
I am wearing Brun Sortilege 21 (slightly darker) on my index and ring finger, and Brun Sortilege – Sorceress 21 (slightly lighter) on my middle finger and pinkie, both in two easy coats.
The slight difference in the dark brown color can be because of a lot of facts. I bought both mine as pre owned so has one been allowed to fade, the other not, has one been thinned etc. etc. But available pigments at the time they were produced also could be a reason – just as what pigments were allowed in France and which in USA.No matter what it’s a classic and pretty brown, and I’m happy to have both in my collection.
Do you like these two versions of this old polish?
I'm happy to have both, but prefer the darker "Made in France" version...
