NARS Audacious Lipsticks

Last year saw the release of the NARS Audacious Lipsticks and I'm so impressed with them. I want to show you the three that I own and tell you a bit more about the formula.

There are 40 gorgeous shades so there's something for everyone. It was so hard narrowing down my choices each time I purchased one! The formula is a satin finish which I absolutely love. It doesn't leave the lips really dry but doesn't look too glossy either. It stays in place on the lips for hours and feels really comfortable. I find these to be a great choice for nights out as the bold colour lasts through many drinks and even through eating food!

Each shade I've tried is extremely pigmented too. You get a beautiful bold colour in one smooth swipe of the bullet.

The shades I have are Janet (dark pinky berry), Angela (pink with a hint of purple) and Michiyo (hot pink) and I love them all. I definitely want to add more of these lipsticks to my collection.

Another plus point about these lipsticks is the packaging. It's not the usual matte, rubberised casing. It's a sleek, smooth metal casing that doesn't attract fingerprints like the usual NARS packaging. It also has a magnetic lid which I think is a nice touch. These definitely feel and look more luxurious so I would 100% say they are worth the £24 (Space NK) price tag.

If you want to see what Janet looks like on the lips, check out my Modern Autumn Makeup post here. It was the first one I bought and I've worn it quite a bit since I got it as it's the perfect shade for Autumn/Winter. I think Angela and Michiyo are going to be great for Spring/Summer.
