Review: Nars Audacious Lipstick in Brigitte

I love Nars, especially their blushes and lipsticks. Simple as that. I haven’t had any luck with their foundations but that is okay. Here I want to share one of their newest line of lipsticks – the Nars Audacious Lipsticks. These are not totally matte and they aren’t shiny either. I would describe them as a creamy, semi-matte lipstick. And they really lasts. Yes.

Here is how Nars described the Audacious lipsticks:

Dramatic Depth. Unstoppable Character.

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 40 shades for unstoppable impact.

  • One-stroke, full-coverage creamy wear
  • Luxurious texture and enriched with ingredients to smooth and nourish lips
  • Long-lasting

Top: 3 swipes Bottom: 1 swipe

I think so too. The shade I ended up picking is Brigitte, described as a “nude rose”. On me, it is more of a soft muted pink. It is such a pretty everyday color. It is not too bright which I didn’t want. It is very creamy and 1 swipe gives great coverage. It never fell dry as the day progressed and I love how long lasting it is. I like to swipe it on and blend using a lip brush and adding as necessary to get a light even layer. It does fade a bit after eating but I still like the look enough to not have to re-apply. It leaves a nice natural touch of color on the lips.

Compare to the Nars matte lipsticks and the velvet matte lip pencils, the formula of the Audacious line is my favorite formula yet. It is not as drying as the matte lipsticks but lasts a lot longer than the lip pencils. It also provides more coverage per swipe.

Love it!
