NARS Kate Audacious Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium purple with warm, pink undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. The color payoff was intense--totally opaque in one pass--and went on evenly. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and never tugged on the lips as I applied it.
