NARS Audacious Lipstick for Fall 2014
NARS Audacious Lipstick for Fall 2014

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. The 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.
