For the holidays, NARS sees the launch of three new, limited edition Audacious Lipsticks and six shades in a new finish in the Powermatte Lip Pigment formula, Luster. The new lip products launch on October 4th at NARS (working on getting dates for retailers). There’s also a Lip Gloss Coffret that will be available from the gifting collection, which I’ve included in this post.

Hardcore, Shredded and Dolce Vita all are catching my eye. I think Dolce Vita is a permanent blush — have to look into that, but in any case a mini would be preferred. Hope these review well.

You’re right, dolce vita is permanent (they have a lipstick in the same shade as well) and one of my favourites. Usually, I prefer a matt blush but dolce vita gives a really beautiful glow. I don’t think you could possibly not like this colour.

Am I ever feeling terribly conflicted over my namesake Audacious Lipstick. I do love the shade itself. I do love the fact that Nars decided to honor this tragic victim of domestic violence who was brutally murdered. The problem? This could have been my own ending. Something about this just shakes me to my core. It really shouldn’t, but it does.

On a lighter note; I must have Siouxsie! Probably Sheena, too. The 80’s were my era, especially for its musical influence and style, plus the fashion! This was a special time for me. I became a Mama in ’86!

I like the colour of Sheena but the wonky bullet shade would bug me! (even though I know it’s deliberate)

Otherwise, pretty standard NARS offering…

Very pretty, but dupable, colors. Blackheart catches my eye, though. I quite like the color of Nancy, but I’m betting Bite Beauty Black Truffle is a pretty close dupe.

The three lipsticks are screaming to me, both in color and name (Siousxie especially!) Damn you NARS for no longer being cruelty-free!

Maybe a CCO will have these?
