Ginette

NARS Ginette Audacious Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, red-burgundy with warmer undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single swipe, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging or dragging during the application.

The lipstick was dense and firm (but again, not stiff to use), so it wasn’t prone to sliding so readily that it was hard to achieve precise application directly from the tube. The color stayed on nicely for six and a half hours, left a faint stain behind, and felt lightly hydrating overall.

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.

Ginette is a sweet one! I would so wear this one. Or so I thought until I saw the dupes I own…..when was the last time I wore my MAC Media anyway? I usually DO rock it several times per autumn and winter, but not this year.

I thought I’d have a lot of dupes for this, turned out I didn’t have any. This is one to seriously consider.
