NARS Vanessa is a very warm-toned, light-medium pink with a satin finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $34.00 and contains 0.14 oz.
Vanessa Audacious Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a "mauve nude." It's a neutral-to-warm-toned, muted pink with a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage that went on smoothly and evenly without bunching up at all. It wore well for five hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. NARS Anita (P, $32.00) is slightly warmer, but the two are surprisingly similar. Guerlain Rosy Boop (369) (P, $37.00) is lighter. Givenchy Nude Guipure (106) (P, $36.00) is warmer. Givenchy Rose d’Exception (206) (LE, $36.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
