Somewhere in all the nattering on I've done over the last few months about the new Milani glitters, I mentioned that the version of Red Sparkle that showed up when the new colors were released didn't look like the old version. It's not an especially subtle difference, either; here are the bottles (old on left, new on right):
The new version has bigger glitter, but the most noticeable difference is the addition of gold. I do not know what's up with this. The image on the Milani website shows the original version, without any gold. It could be that no one let the webmaster know the formula changed. It could be that Milani is in OPI My Private Jet-style denial and is pretending the formula didn't change. It could mean the red and gold was meant to be a line extension but for some reason got bottled with an existing name.
Above, it's new on top, old below, of course. The new version is two coats while the old is one coat; both have topcoat added.
Even with two coats, there are still bare spots with the new version, which is disappointing given that it's part of the One Coat Glitter line. (The same was true of Twinkle, one of the new colors. Maybe someone at Milani proposed a Two or Three Coat Glitter line extension and got shot down but they didn't want to waste the product development time and just released the colors anyway as One Coat.)
Which version do you prefer?
