NARS Dayle Audacious Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium lavender mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a cream finish. It looked drastically different swatched and applied than in the tube--initially! While often, the color of a lipstick (in the tube) will look a bit lighter/darker after being used, this particular shade went from a warmer, rosy pink exterior to reveal a mauvy interior (the color swatched). I was so caught off-guard by the difference that I thought my camera's color balance went awry but lo and behold, I could distinctively see the rosy pink exterior and cooler interior in person.
The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and moderately creamy with some slip. It had opaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly and stayed in place for four and a half hours. I found the formula comfortable to wear and lightly hydrating over time.
