I’m truly, truly such a fan of the NARS brand – they’re creatively clever and always about quality. I don’t remember ever having a bad NARS experience. While I’m a gloss fan at heart, the new Audacious Lipstick collection has me thinking again because these are just sublime.
NARS Audacious Lipstick is described as single-stroke lipsticks in super-saturated colour and an ultra-smooth, soft matte finish. I generally don’t ever regurgitate press release speak but in this case, it’s all true. I was sent a single lipstick so I only have one colour to go on, but I can’t imagine that quality varies. Interestingly, the shade that I was sent is Raquel, a warm but pale nude shade that I would never have picked out for myself.
As you can see, it’s swatched up erring to pink, and I love it on me. It’s probably the only matte I’ve ever genuinely loved and came out at that intensity in one swipe.
I think that NARS Audacious Lipsticks are going to end up being the must-haves of the year. They’re £24 each HERE. If you’re going to treat yourself to an autumn beauty buy, I’d highly, highly recommend.
