Well, just look what I’ve got! Ever since I first heard about the NARS Audacious lipsticks last month, they have been at the very top of my wish list. If you saw my post where I mentioned the NARS Audacious Vault you’ll see what I mean. I fell completely in love.
I pre-ordered three – yes I managed to get my wish list of ten down to three! – lipsticks. I must confess there are still three others sitting in my basket at the moment, I have no idea how long I’ll manage to leave them there as I’ve now put myself on a spending ban (boo hoo). Anyway, this time I went for Annabella (red), Anita (nude) and Angela (fuchsia).
The Audacious lipsticks come in a matte black casing – but this time it’s not the usual NARS rubberised finish, the casings are metal – and when you put the lid on you realise they’re magnetised too, and these lipsticks have the most amazing click. I can’t even tell you. I haven’t found a lipstick lid click as satisfying as this before! And funnily enough, the three lipsticks didn’t like sitting together if I didn’t have them a certain way round, as the magnets kept repelling each other! 🙂
So, on to the Audacious formula. It’s described as –
A modern lipstick so shamelessly seductive in touch and texture the sensation is audacious. Unadulterated luxury glides on like satin across skin with single-stroke coverage. A spectrum of shades for unstoppable impact. One-stroke, full-coverage creamy wear, luxurious texture and enriched with ingredients to smooth and nourish lips.
And yeah they got it pretty much spot on!
So first up we have Annabella. If you’re a regular you’ll know I never show off my pearlies, mainly because they’re not particularly straight or white. Annabella though, is THE most perfect red, and it made my teeth look amazingly white. This has easily become an instant favourite for me. I have a heap of red lippies in my stash so I think I’ll do a comparison post soon!
Anita is a stunning nude, not too light or too dark, it is a beautiful muted rose shade that is perfect for every day wear. You can see just how amazingly creamy these lipsticks are too, the formula is one of the best I’ve come across.
And lastly Angela, this is a bright orchid / fuchsia shade, it’s verging on purple but not quite. If you’re a bit nervous of purple lipsticks, this would be a fab starter shade to ease you in before delving into a deeper purple. I actually tried this one first and decided it was my favourite, but since wearing the other colours they’re all so gorgeous in their own right now I’m actually in love with all three of these lipsticks! 🙂
The formula of the Audacious lipsticks really is perfect. It’s not often I use this word but I really cannot flaw them. They’re creamy, comfortable, long lasting, and the pigmentation is amazing! The only downside is the price, at £24 each they’re definitely classed as a luxury product, but I honest;y think they’re worth every penny.
So what do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts! xxx
