After falling in love with the formula of my first Nars Audacious Lipstick in Anna I knew I had to add another shades to my collection. With those lipsticks being rather expensive I was waiting for a special occasion to treat myself and having my birthday just couple of weeks ago was the perfect opportunity. And then came the difficult part, which shade to choose?
There are so many gorgeous colours in the range that the decision wasn't easy but after watching hundreds of swatches online I chose Natalie.
Natalie is a beautiful pink coral shade, perfect for Spring and Summer and exactly what I was looking for. I love all coral-y shades for this time of the year. It looks quite bold on me right now but once I get a bit of tan it will become much more wearable for everyday.
As with all the Nars Audacious Lipsticks the formula is fantastic, it's very creamy to apply, incredibly pigmented, and feels comfortable on the lips leaving a semi-matte finish.
The lipstick lasts on my lips without any lip liner up to 4-5 hours if I'm not eating. If the food is involved the lipsticks wears off slightly in the centre of the lips but still looks good. I'd say that this particular shade looks a bit worse after a few hours of wearing it when eating and drinking than Anna. But I think it's because is a brighter shade.
Even though I've had this lipstick for a short time I've worn it already a few times and I'm loving it. The colour is so Summer-y. For everyday softer look I just pat it on my lips with my finger tip. And if I want a bolder look I use it straight from the bullet.
I can't fault these lipsticks, from the packaging, through the formula to the colours range, they're perfect.
Do you have any Nars Audacious Lipsticks? Which one is your favourite? I think I need another one :)
