I hope that with this launch, you will review/swatch the color Funny Face. It is a great fuchsia lipstick color and I am always curious to know what dupes are there for it on your site.

Time to check for expiration. Wish they revived King Kong, fave bronze ever. I’ve really loved many of these shades, but Audacious was such an improvement in formula.

Uh oh Christine, I hope your lips are ready! Excited to see the color “sexual healing” since I have that NARS blush color.

Well, Nars just killed it for me with some of these vile names, including one ethnic slur, plus many a sex reference. Not happy about that. Then again, what would I expect from Nars?
One shade does at least intrigue me, Dressed To Kill. So that’s one anyway.

I find referring to him as Legendary comical, not because he isn’t well known or talented but because this is his brand and it comes off like calling himself legendary. I have to say it’s once again disappointing to see a slur as a shade name. The red packaging looks nice on those 12 shades and I have been wanting Roman Holiday for a couple of years so I may finally pick it up.

Ooooooo!!!! Can’t wait so excited! Also, I had no idea how many of my all time favorite lipsticks are from NARS’s original launch. Funny Face, Casablanca, Heatwave, all timeless and beautiful.

I’m really interested to know if this is a relaunch with new packaging + new colors or if it is also a reformulation as well. NARS seems to have been overhauling much of their existing offerings in the past 2 years or so, discontinuing and replacing older formulas — their eyeshadows, eyeliners, highlighters, and now it looks like possibly their “regular” lipsticks too! (vs the Audacious line)
