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.

Oof. I’m kind of glad these are at a more “premium” price because that might help me stay away from them, or just get one. But I’m dying a little because I see they’re all named after classic movie stars, and I love old movies. I will probably need the one named for Rita Hayworth. After you review the formula, of course!

Spring was brutal for the overwhelming number of new blushes..looks like fall is going to be so brutal for me for lipsticks..

Yes, I’m hoping this new formula works for me. Similar to the Illamasqua regular formula, I find NARS lipsticks to be over-the-top drying. I can’t wear them…pencil or lipstick. Illamasqua came out with the Glamore range this spring and I couldn’t be happier..(now if only I could get them to make Kontrol in the glamore formula). Fingers crossed for NARS!

I found NARS lipsticks to be drying on my lips and one even dried out in the tube (LE Petit Monstre). But then they were re-formulated and I re-purchased them with a few new ones. They are quite nice now.

So they might be worth the gamble.

If I read the info correctly, these Lovely Little Ladies are available only at Barneys?

So then any swatches and descriptions would be exclusive only to whoever (you?) might buy them?

Francois, you really need to think a bit more of the ladies who like to shop in-store, and not just at Barneys which, if memory serves me correctly, is an East-Coast store?

Any hope of these lipsticks coming to nordies?

I don’t know about these particular products, but whenever NARS does retailer “exclusives”, even with LE, they’ve always been available on the NARS site, as well. Hopefully that’s the case, because there are at least 4 that I want to check out…

I love this collection of new lippies. I see about 10 I need right now! I also adore that he’s using Charlotte for the collection muse and advertising! That woman is 68 and one of the sexiest women alive in my opinion.

Love when they release new collections that are not LE 😀 Can’t wait to see your reviews and swatches.

Hopefully you can get all 40 of them since your swatches and reviews are really helpful! 🙂 Besides, they’re too many shades, so your swatches and reviews are a kind of pre-requisite course before buying them. lol

These look and sound so pretty. I just hope I can wear these (I have owned three NARS Lipsticks in the past and they give me a slight allergic reaction — nothing too severe, but I do need to put on hydrocortisone cream afterwards)!

I love the model for the Nars ad. I just looked her up and found her name through the TV series Dexter. She’s been very busy since 1965! I really like her as an actress.

I wonder if these are meant to be similar to Givenchy’s [amazing!] Le Rouge lipsticks: semi-matte, highly-pigmented, non-drying & contained in a beautiful case [leather]. Le Rouge is one of my go-to’s for clients and it would be great to have another gorgeous choice.

Lipsticks aside, I really love Charlotte Rampling as the face of this campaign. She is one of my favourite actresses of all time and a personal beauty icon. A classic beauty with an egde, which is exactly what NARS embodies in my mind. Also, a woman in her sixties fronting a major cosmetic campaign -yay :)!

This seems to be a very, very good collection of lipsticks, A lot of these have the wow-factor I missed in the Guerlaine lipsticks.
I hope they will be available here. I think Barneys shps internationalloy, but I might mix Barneys with some other store.

One can never have too many lipsticks. That’s what I’ll be thinking when I go to buy these! Can’t wait for the reviews!

Gorgeous colors and some of these will definitely be up my alley. On a side note, I love the names! I just saved the whole list to my potential-baby-name list 🙂

When there are only a few colours I don’t like, I know that I will have such a hard deciding on just ‘one’ or ‘two’ to buy that I will end up getting none. Hope the formulation is good because the colours are perfection- for me, anyway.
