Carrera

NARS Carrera Audacious Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep peach with strong, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly on my lips. The consistency felt creamy, lightweight but had good adherence to my lips (“clingy” in that sense without actually feeling that way!) and was comfortable to wear. It wore well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.14 oz. - $242.86 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "one-stroke, full-coverage" pigmentation with a "soft matte finish" that is "long-lasting" and "hydrating." The formula is best characterized by its texture: creamy, smooth, and slightly denser/thicker on (but not heavy) compared to the typical lipstick formula. Most of the shades are opaque, while "weak" shades are more semi-opaque. The majority of the colors I've tested have applied evenly and smoothly with good glide and feel comfortable on my lips. They tend to last between four and six hours and was lightly hydrating to non-drying. There was no noticeable scent or taste.

Madura

NARS Madura Audacious Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a blackened purple with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not build up much beyond that due to the more emollient quality of the texture. The lipstick glided easily across my lips but had a tendency to slide too readily, so it was more challenging to apply it with precision–it had the type of texture (and depth of hue) that I’d recommend using with a lip brush. Despite the slip, it didn’t settle as noticeably in my lip lines as I expected. On me, it stayed on nicely for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time. I didn’t experience feathering–but keep in mind that it isn’t something I seem to be particularly prone to experiencing (read: it takes a LOT of slip for me to see it!).

Got Nancy, so I don’t need Madura.
Got Sheena and MAC Apricot Gold, so I’m covered for Carrera, too. But, the quality of Carrera looks splendid for anyone who wanted Sheena and couldn’t get it!
