My love for NARS Cosmetics runs deep and unconditional. They have actually COMPLETELY outdone themselves on their upcoming 20th anniversary launch of Audacious Lipstick Collection. The two shades I have to show you today are Audrey and Brigitte. Those names are so iconic and these lipsticks absolutely live up to that!
“NARS Founder and Creative Director François Nars launched his namesake brand with a collection of 12 unforgettable lipsticks. Now, in celebration of its 20th Anniversary, NARS pays tribute to its beginnings with the launch of The Audacious Lipstick Collection: lipsticks so shamelessly seductive in touch and texture, the sensation is absolutely audacious.
The innovative, pigment-rich formula delivers an intense, full-coverage finish in a single stroke, while nutrient rich ingredients are known to smooth, moisturize and volumize. This 40-shade collection features a full range of provocative hues from neutral nudes to striking reds and bold pinks. Housed in a modern, matte-black metallic case with a magnetic closure, the specially designed sculpted bullet is embossed with the NARS logo.” – NARS Cosmetics
Because Francois Nars is actually a well-known movie buff and often names his products after movies and the like it is no surprise that the shades in this collection actually are named after some fabulous ladies. The shades that I have to show you from the NARS Audacious Lipstick Collection just happen to correlate to two of my favorite fashion and beauty icons. Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot.
I chose the lipsticks I wanted based SOLELY on the names alone. I didn’t even have to see the shade to know I love them. I think the shades were perfectly chosen and really embody the women they are named after.
NARS Audacious Lipstick in Audrey is a red currant. It leans more mauve/rose than the description suggests but it is 100% a lip color for which Audrey is famous. This type of beautiful, deeper lip shade is going to be PERFECTLY on trend for the Fall.
NARS Audacious Lipstick in Brigitte is described as a nude rose and I would totally have to agree. This is actually one of my perfect shades to wear. It goes with everything, including a sexy eye look and an intrepid star. Brigitte is known as a sexpot and this has sexy written all over it.
Can you get over these shades? WOW! I am completely convinced that I need every shade of NARS Audacious Lipsticks under the sun. THIS IS ONE SWIPE from the bullet. I am blown away. The formula is so rich and luscious. The pigmentation is smooth and amazing. I have not one gripe about this collection EXCEPT that I have to wait until September 1st to order them from either narscosmetics.com, Bloomingdale’s, Beauty.com, Selfridge’s, and Barneys!
