The new NARS Audacious Mascara has a wand that looks like a weapon! Each brush has 200 bristles and lengthening hooks so you can grab each lash. The claim is that it simultaneously separates, lengthens and amplifies. Well, not on the first coat, it doesn’t. In fact, the first coat application was distinctly underwhelming and it wasn’t until I applied the formula a second time that things started to happen.
There are no brittle, hard coated lashes with NARS Audacious Mascara – you can feel it’s there but in comparison to some formulas it definitely does have a softness to it which of course means that re-application looks fine; it doesn’t seem to suffer from cloggy build up. The last is good and I didn’t have any smudging throughout the day, but you know.. is it an amazing mascara? No, it’s a very good one, but if I compare to the recent Chanel mascara that I reviewed, there isn’t really the same kind of wow with it. I’m feeling a bit blah about NARS in general these days when I’ve been an ardent fan for a long time and the NARS Audacious Mascara kind of sums it up. It’s okay. It’s not wow.
NARS Audacious Mascara launches for £20 at SpaceNk on 1st September then nationwide on 1st October.
