Nars Audacious Lipstick | £24 | Link |
Oh, Nars – how I love you. Since this collection was permanently released last year I have been collecting these babies as they’re truly amazing. I’m a Mac girl, I have a hell of a lot Mac lipsticks and I’ll forever purchase more but the Audacious lipsticks take some beating.
I’m all about sleek, black packaging but the best thing about these lipsticks is the magnetic closure. My boyfriend spent a few minutes opening and closing the first ones I bought (Anna and Anita) because he’s a child and it’s such a good concept – no lids falling off whilst your make up lies at the bottom of your bag.
They are full-coverage with one swipe, insanely pigmented and leave a long-lasting satin finish. They are very creamy and apply evenly, not tugging on the lips. I wouldn’t say that the lipsticks are nourishing or hydrating but they certainly don’t dry my lips out, and I have terribly chapped lips. The creaminess of the lipsticks make them very comfortable to wear; utter luxury.
As you can tell, I love my nudes.
Raquel – Pink beige
Brigitte – Nude rose
Julie – Nude coral pink
Anita – Antique rose
Anna – Smokey rose
Vivien – Red plum
Jeanne – Cherry red
Audrey – Red currant
Dominque – Pink lilac
Wish list: Grace, Claudia, Silvia, Rita.I realised after swatching that I don’t have enough pinks! Claudia needs to be mine.
There are 40 shades in the collection and they retail for £24. I know, I know, it’s expensive for a lipstick but if you try them, you’ll see that they are totally worth it. And with the range of shades there is most definitely something for everyone.
Anna and Dominique are most definitely my favourite of the nine Nars Audacious lipsticks I own.
Anna is a stunning colour for daily wear, it’s a very beautiful dusty pink that is a bit bolder than an every day nude. It’s one of the best-selling colours from the line and I’m not surprised.
Dominique is also highly sought after as it is such a unique lipstick. I didn’t think it’d suit me when I first purchased it as it is not something I would normally wear but it’s gorgeous. Dominique is a muted purple with pink undertones, it wears fairly dark on my porcelain skin and I’m in love with it.
Have you tried any of the Nars Audacious lipsticks?
