Round-up: NARS Audacious Lipstick Overview & Thoughts

NARS Audacious Lipstick
NARS Audacious Lipstick

NARS Audacious Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is available in forty shades and is a new, permanent formula. For a list of which shades are available at which retailers, see this post. The formula is characterized by rich color payoff paired with a creamy, satiny finish that gives lips a smoother, fuller look. The formula was fairly consistent with only a few shades performing outside of the norm, but the lowest rating was a B-. 32 of the 40 shades were As. The only downside is that the formula isn’t really moisturizing in my experience, and for the price point, I wish it was.
