NARS Louise Audacious Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was very nearly opaque in a single layer--I could see the outline of my lip freckle peeking through but just barely. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and creamy without being slippery on the lips. I felt like this particular shade looked smoother and more flattering on the lips compared to the others released for fall. On me, the lipstick wore well for six hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
