NARS Catherine Audacious Lipstick
NARS Audacious Lipstick: Catherine, Juliette, Natalie, Grace, Geraldine

Today, I’m reviewing some of the more coral shades in the new NARS Audacious Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) range. The new formula is supposed to be richly pigmented, give lips a smoother appearance, and be moisturizing. So far, they are very pigmented and forgiving when applied as the formula doesn’t catch on any imperfections on the lips. The consistency is creamy, lightweight, but not too emollient, so it doesn’t slide around. I’ve been finding them to be longer-wearing as well. The formula isn’t moisturizing from my experience with them, and it doesn’t retain the same, ultra-flattering finish throughout wear, as it tends to look a bit dry during the last hour or two of wear. It appears to be scent- and taste-free. These launch September 1st, they’re now online at narscosmetics.com.

Catherine Audacious Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “sunny guava.” It’s a brightened, medium orange-coral with a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage in one pass, and it looked beautiful on as it smoothed out the appearance of the lips. The color lasted for five hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Style Approved (LE, $22.00) is more muted. Givenchy Corail Signature (317) (P, $36.00) is darker. Bite Beauty Centifolia (LE, $28.00) is lighter. Sephora Collection Samba (LE, $12.50) is brighter. Too Faced Melted Coral (P, $21.00) is lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Sweet Spot (05) (LE, $49.00) is pinker. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Kimber (P, $18.00) is warmer. MAC Sweet Grenadine (LE, $17.00) is darker. Givenchy Croisiere Coral (310) (LE, $36.00) is pinker. NARS Lodhi (P, $25.00) is more matte. MAC Style Surge (P, $22.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Juliette Audacious Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “pink coral.” It’s a brightened, medium coral-pink with a satin finish. It had fully opaque coverage after one stroke, and it was really smooth and even–sometimes shades like will bunch up and create “lines” if you press your lips together, but this one doesn’t. It lasted four and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Modern Wow! (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Kat Von D L’Ecole des Femmes (P, $21.00) is more matte, pinker. Bite Beauty Centifolia (LE, $28.00) is lighter. MAC Toying Around (LE, $16.00) is darker, pinker. Givenchy Brun Createur (103) (P, $36.00) is more matte, pinker, more muted. Too Faced Coral Fire (P, $22.00) is darker, more matte. Givenchy Croisiere Coral (310) (LE, $36.00) is slightly warmer. NARS Lodhi (P, $25.00) is warmer, more matte. MAC Style Surge (P, $22.00) is warmer. Buxom Two-Timer (P, $21.00) is more muted. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Natalie Audacious Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “flamingo.” It’s a brightened, medium pink-coral with a semi-matte finish and warm undertones. The formula was richly pigmented, and again, the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin and applied with a really nice, smooth result. On me, the color wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Love Temple (LE, $22.00) is glossier, slightly warmer. Kat Von D L’Ecole des Femmes (P, $21.00) is more matte. Marc Jacobs Beauty Wham (604) (P, $28.00) is darker, more matte. Revlon Snow Peach (LE, $7.99) is glossier, sheerer. Bite Beauty Crush (P, $28.00) is brighter, warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty Shout (138) (LE, $30.00) is darker. YSL Rose Neillia (33) (P, $34.00) is glossier, pinker. Chanel Melodieuse (136) (P, $34.00) is pinker. Too Faced Bon Bon (P, $22.00) is glossier. Givenchy Rose Dressing (202) (P, $36.00) is slightly darker. MAC Watch Me Simmer (LE, $16.00) is more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Grace Audacious Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “bright pink coral.” It’s a bright, medium-dark coral-red with warm undertones and a satiny finish. The pigmentation was on point with full color coverage in one stroke. It had a nice, creamy feel that glided across the lips and delivered even color. This shade wore for six hours and was a smidgen drying. NARS Kelly (P, $32.00) is more muted. Chanel La Malicieuse (46) (P, $34.00) is pinker. Maybelline Shocking Coral (P, $7.49) is glossier. Make Up For Ever #37 (P, $19.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Geraldine Audacious Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “tangerine.” It’s a bright, medium orange with warm, yellow-orange undertones and a luminous finish. It had a glossier finish than a lot of the other shades in the range, but it didn’t seem to affect the coverage or wear. It still had really intense color payoff that went on smoothly, while the color itself wore well for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Givenchy Corail Signature (317) (P, $36.00) is lighter. Illamasqua Soaked (P, $26.00) is a touch darker. NARS Timanfaya (P, $25.00) is more matte, lighter. Milani Sweet Nectar (P, $5.49) is more matte. Maybelline Electric Orange (P, $7.49) is similar. MAC Fashion Nomad (LE, $16.00) is more matte, darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

I am so impressed with all these lipsticks, so many pretty shades to choose from. Natalie is my favorite from the orange batch but you look beautiful in all of them, as always!

oHMYYYY. All these shades are literally perfect! Like candy and sunset! I’m trying to maybe decide on one of them… but I can’t. That’s how much I love all of these shades.

Glorious~ I could ‘do’ them all 🙂

Aside: proof I gravitate to the same colours over and over again.. My fav of the pack is Grace. Lo and Behold, it’s very close to Kelly which I was also lemming. Dupes: I already have a handful of lipsticks that are in the dupe/possible dupe sections. Clearly I don’t need this one. *sigh I’m really going to take a serious look at all of these and try and venture outside of the areas I already have well covered and then some in my stash.

This contains all my favourite colours from the lineup. I’ve noticed that most shades in the whole line are very bright and almost neon. Catherine looks very similar to Revlon’s Mischievous but thicker, more opaque.

They have quite a few brighter, bolder colors – most of the range is bright or dark (though there are a few more muted shades).

So pretty….it seems like Nars did a mix of bold and more neutral colors…so everyone can find a shade that works. I’m loving watching you post these. Still have no idea which one I will try…but since they aren’t available yet that doesn’t matter!!!

Hi Christine! I`m a new reader, 2 days ago I found out about your site through a Brazilian Blogger that I follow (marina Smith/ 2beauty blog), was such a great surprise! I`ve been loving everything about it. I spent hours ( I mean like 5 hours ) yesterday going through past posts and comments. I can`t get enough of the real reviews, awesome swatch and dupes.

Yes! I already have a list with 8 colors i want, they are quite expensive but since they are gorgeous colors that i dont have and the formula its pretty good i dont mind spending that much on them, i’ll just buy them maybe one by one. Thank god they are permanent!

Definitely want to pick up Natalie! These seem so up my alley! I’ve been looking for the perfect pink shade, anything muted pink that would be thought of as the perfect bridal lip shade and this formula seems to be one I would love to try. Any suggestions?

I don’t know if its my MACbook screen or whatever these seem VERY bright! almost neon! I love the subtle differences in the hue.. but I have no idea what they’ll look like on me!

These corals look beautiful on you!
I’m not interested in this shade range but from what I read of your review, these lipsticks are more drying than the previous shades you tested out?
The full-face view helps a lot in seeing the overall effect of the color on face/eyes.
This is an incredible job — and ingredient lists too!
Thanks.

I LOVE Grace, it’s such a gorgeous color, but seeing that Maybelline has a dupe for like 8 dollars makes me very happy. I don’t have this kind of money to be blowing on one single product alone, so I will be looking for that Maybelline lipstick!! Thank you so much for the review 😀

Nice oranges. Geraldine is too orange for me. I have transparent tooth enamel from antibiotics as a kid, and my teeth show the yellow underlayer. Bright orange just looks like I haven’t brushed my teeth. I’m liking all the other colors much more than I thought I would. I really like the looks of Grace.

When I’m done having to wear an InvisAlign retainer 24/7, I’m going to look into veneers. Better to have transparent enamel than lose my kidneys. It’s really not super-noticeable unless I wear really orangey-lipstick, but that sucks when it’s one of the season’s hot colors.

Nothing from this batch, either… So far, I’m not interested in 1/4 of the shades, which frees up funds for other goodies, LOL! That said, I’m not sure I can get through the nides/pinky-nudes without putting several on “the list”.

The formula sounds really nice and I’m loving all of these shades lol. It seems like NARS really knocked this release out of the park!

With every post you upload, I add to my list of colors I want. Geraldine is gorgeous! I have a thing for oranges and corals right now haha

Lovely spectrum, though I’m not much of a NARS lippie user.
PS. Christine, I’m crossing fingers for zero loaded palettes for a month but I think a week w/o a new release of 20+ will be daunting for the industry enough. They whip them out like sweatshirts nowadays. Smh. What do you DO to keep relaxed and balanced under the pressure? I honestly think your subs would prefer you in good health rather than pushing it so hard.. You are the real workhouse. I think some people come here expecting without any thought as to what goes into it.. I say, BRAVA!, for all you DO get done healthily, and forgive you if you can’t get to them all because some day.. You’ll be bored or something and will get back to it. I bet it’s Xmas time already. Dear, I feel for you. Do you get frustrated upon noting 80% of your work basically reviewed the exact same thing done in many ways? *Hugs* You ARE super, but you’re human. A super human cannot be forced upon self expectations and I wish all here respected that if you were to say you’re tired or some things will be late.. Do cosmetic companies give you a dateline? <3 Lotus

LOL! If there isn’t a new palette released this week, I will be in utter shock. 😉

I actually don’t get frustrated – I more get overwhelmed and just feel bad that I can’t review more products/review products fast enough. If I only tested a couple of shades for wear, I could definitely get them done faster, but having done it that way for awhile now, some products can be very inconsistent in wear!

I promise I’m in good health! Mellan’s around to keep me from going too crazy. Thank you so much! 🙂

I love how Catherine and Juliette (the first two) are bright but still muted – not neon, obnoxiously bright like we’ve been seeing for a long time now. The trend of super bright lipsticks (coral and pink) are making me want to pull out my Revlon Coffee Bean!! lol 🙂

Still looking for MAC Apres Chic and Cyndi dupes – any of these remind you of either??

I like Natalie and Grace a lot, but there’s something about Gerladine that just really appeals to me. It might be that it kind of just says ‘Hello! I am orange. That is all’. I could never wear the shade (too yellow-based for me, let alone being orange), but I really like it nonetheless!

Wow, these look amazing! I was wondering if sweating on the sides of brand new lipsticks are normal? These ones seem to have that, along with some of the MAC ones I just bought and was wondering if that meant they were old/no longer good. Thanks!

It usually seems to occur more often in the summer – these traveled from NYC to California and went ground for 7 days or so? I’ve been told it’s a temperature thing – when it goes from cold to hot, hot to cold, etc. they can do that. I know they sat on a truck in 100+ degree heat for about 7 hours just the day they were delivered. I haven’t had it happen randomly while owning a product, though – only when I’ve initially received.

These are all my kinds of colours – wow! I’m in love with Catherine, but I already have Too Faced’s Melted Coral, Bite Beauty’s Centifolia, and NARS’ Lodhi which are all listed as dupes… Obviously I have a ‘type’!! 😉

I’m probably in the teeny weeny minority but I really dislike completely full coverage lipsticks on myself:( I think they look very pretty on everyone else but just don’t like them on myself unless its a rather muted shade . I must be crazy but there you have it so I feel I can safely skip on most of these Audacious lipsticks! They look super pretty on you tho!

I love Geraldine and Catherine. I have the Maybelline orange, dupe for Geraldine, and I probably have somethign at least remotely like Catherine, so money saved on these ones.
I do suspect quite a bit of my money will go to NARS, when we walk toward the reds, I have a hard time saying -No to a beautiful red.
You look gorgeous in all of these, I still can’t understand how you manage looking so good in all kinds of lipstick colours, finishes and so on. Magic, perhaps… 🙂

I was just looking at some of Charlotte Tilbury’s products, and from the swatches provided Nars Natalie looks quite similar to Coachella Coral. Do you have a preference between the two formulas/colors? I think CT’s packaging is particularly STUNNING!
