About two months ago, I had a momentary lack in financial judgement and bought six, yes SIX, Nars Audacious Lipsticks. Spoiler Alert: They’re awesome, don’t get me wrong, but at $32, they don’t come cheap.
Nars switched up their lipstick packaging with this Audacious line and they did good. Beautiful sleek, black bullets, yet non-rubberized like the old ones (aka dirt magnets). They also have magnetic closures which are more entertaining for me than practical or useful, but then again, they do make good bobby pin locators in my makeup bag. Works every time.
First up, Brigitte. A peachy nude that is a bit lighter than most shades I wear but definitely still wearable for a “my lips but better” lover like myself.

Overall Grade: A
I LOVE these lipsticks. Beautiful and unique colors, stunning pigmentation, and my absolute favorite texture/formula. They are all a soft, creamy semi-matte and remind me of the new Maybelline Soft Matte lipsticks that came out earlier this year. They last a decent amount of time and wear off nicely. The only downfall is the price point, but after just two months of having these Anna has already proven to be worth the cost.
My best advice? Go in and swatch them before buying to make sure you love the shade before committing. I really think you will love these.
