NARS Audacious Lipstick

I love lipstick. And I have a lot of them. It’s really no surprise, this is why I included lipstick in my blog title, lol. I’ve tried some really good ones, some really not so good ones, and everything in between. NARS Audacious lipsticks are, by far, the best of the bunch. They go on so smoothly; literally, just one swipe and that’s all you need. The formula is outstanding; light, velvety, and semi matte, they make my lips look amazing. They aren’t heavy on the lips and they have pretty good staying power. Now, the lipstick will transfer but they tend to stain so color will remain on your lips. The packaging is sleek and feels great in the hand. It’s a soft matte black with contrasting gloss lettering. What I love most, though, is the fact that the lid is magnetic. When you open it and close it, it has the most satisfying click as the magnet closes. I know, it’s weird that something like that would make an impression, but I’ve found myself sitting at my desk opening the lid and letting it click closed while I contemplate an email (probably annoying the crap out of my colleagues). The bullet has NARS embossed in it, which, to me, is the mark of a truly high end lipstick. When I bought my first one, I figured, that’s all I really needed. 9 lipsticks later and I want all of them. There are 40 shades, by the way; 30 shades are available everywhere, there are 10 exclusive shades that can be purchased at the NARS website or locations, and Barney’s New York. At $32 a pop, it’s a hefty investment, but they are well worth the price…
