NARS Isabella Audacious Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with soft, warm undertones and a satin sheen. The lipstick had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which glided across my lips easily and delivered an even application of product. The texture was creamy, smooth, and lightweight, despite having a denser/slightly thicker feel. It wore well for five and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.
