Editor's Review

NARS Carmen Audacious Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium red with warmer undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that adhered fairly evenly and smoothly across my lips. The texture felt incredibly creamy--a bit too emollient, as it easily skated along my lips so I'd recommend being more precise/careful during application.

This was the last shade I swatched in a batch of 14 (my lips are usually at maximum exfoliation by then!), so I was surprised that it did go on more evenly and seemed to separate slightly along my deeper lip lines, though the richer, brighter color camouflaged the flaws in person. The color stayed on nicely for six hours, left a faint stain behind, and was lightly hydrating while worn.

This shade is exclusive to NARS' website.
