Noire et Blanche

NARS Noire et Blanche Audacious Lipstick Coffret ($55.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes four miniature-sized lipsticks with three of the four shades being new and one is a repeat from the permanent range (Charlotte). Three shades were quite pigmented and one was semi-opaque, and all four lasted for at least five hours on me and were no hardship to wear or to test. I noticed the texture of Charlotte and Josephine was thinner and less creamy compared to the Audacious formula on average.

Value

A full-sized Audacious Lipstick retails for $34.00 and contains 0.14 oz. or costs $242.86/oz. The set contains $77.71 worth of product.

Double Take

NARS Double Take Overexposed Glow Highlighter ($42.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a luminous sheen. It seemed more metallic initially but ended up applying with a softer finish that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture.

The consistency was smooth, moderately dense, and had no powderiness at all; it felt similar to the brand’s Dual-Intensity formula to me. It had good pigmentation that was easy to sheer out or build up to truly full coverage if desired. The highlighter wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

NARS Altiplano, Naxos, Sorrento Kohliners

NARS Altiplano Kohliner

Altiplano

NARS Altiplano Kohliner ($26.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a muted, medium gold with warm, brown undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff in one layer, which built up to nearly full coverage with a second layer. The pencil had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that felt more waxy than wet or creamy, and it glided across the lash line without tugging as a result. It lasted for five hours on my waterline and eight hours on my lower lash line.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.02 oz. - $1300.00 Per Ounce

The Kohliner formula is supposed to be a “creamy eyeliner that is “buildable” and “blendable” that can be used on the lash line as well as on the waterline. The description seemed rather apt, and I like that they described it as buildable. It was definitely an eyeliner that could be smudged if done so shortly after applying (I would apply it to one eye at a time, if you wanted to smudge or diffuse the edges). On me, the color wore well for six hours on my waterline and eight hours on my lower lash line.
