NARS Nancy is a slightly cool-toned, very dark purple with a cream finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $34.00 and contains 0.14 oz.
NARS Nancy Audacious Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a blackened purple with subtle, warm pink undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single, fluid layer that adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips without emphasizing my lip lines. It had a lightly creamy, moderately emollient consistency--it felt more slippery than the average Audacious Lipstick has to me--but it managed to go on evenly. This shade stayed on well for six and a half hours and felt less high-maintenance after an hour or so of wear (or, pro tip, blot lightly after initial application). The formula felt lightly hydrating over time and did not experience any feathering or bleeding while worn.
This shade is exclusive to NARS.
