Nars Audacious Lipsticks
I couldn't resist getting the Nars Audacious lipsticks. I first received Nars Audacious Lipstick in Fanny as a present over Christmas and the formula, pigmentation and packaging are seriously a winning combo. The new magnetic lipstick packaging is genius. The creamy moisturizing but super vibrant and pigmented color makes this lipstick so easy and beautiful to wear. It feels like a lip balm on the lips! There are about 40 lipstick shades in this range so there is seriously a shade (or two or three) for everyone! And I love that each lipstick is a girl's name (where's Cynthia?) and can you tell I'm obsessed?
Fanny is a strong deep warm berry shade that is slightly pink/purple. It's so creamy and easy to apply! This stuff does not drag on the lips and I just can't get over how pigmented it is! I loved wearing this over the holidays and it looks really nice with a simple muted eye look. One wasn't enough, so I immediately went to a Nars counter and picked up the shade, Barbara. I wanted an everyday shade since Fanny was quite strong, and I looked at a few shades and Barbara was the darkest nude out of the range. It is a warm beige and described as a "tan rose" shade. When the Nars sales associate applied it to me in the store she couldn't believe how perfect a "my lips but better" shade it was. That sold me immediately. On me, the pink tone doesn't show up as much and looks definitely more tan. I have seen swatches of Bridgette (more peachy pink than Barbara) and I have my eyes on that next! It's a great shade to wear every day for work. Both these lipsticks have made their way into my handbags. I love that I have a day option with Barbara and then I can put on Fanny to create a night look! I love these lipsticks!
