Nars Audacious Lipsticks | Anna & Barbara

I love lipsticks! And some of the nicest (and most expensive, eek) I’ve tried are these Nars Audacious Lipsticks. They definitely ooze luxury with their magnetic, sleek, black packaging, high impact pigmentation and velvety soft satin feel. I also love that they are named after women’s names! How cool is that?! I wish there was a ‘Nicole’ but sadly not; although I was able to buy my best friend Natalie her namesake lipstick from the collection which was so cute.

Whilst they don’t possess an impressive lasting power they are just so beautiful to wear and apply, with a pretty, slightly glossy finish, that I don’t really mind. I think I’ve got used to being slightly spoilt by matte liquid lipsticks in regards to longevity and really it’s unfair to compare them as they are entirely different formulas and products. What you’re getting with these is a high pigment, luxurious and comfortable satin lipstick.

Anyway, I’ll get on to showing you the colours! If you’re even considering splashing out this much on a lipstick you’ll want to know exactly what to expect from the colours and whether they’ll suit you. I currently have two from the collection: ‘Anna’ and ‘Barbara’.

Barbara is an ultra wearable browny/pinky nude colour meanwhile Anna is definitely a more bold choice being a purple/mauve shade. I find Anna difficult to wear if I’m honest but it’s such a beautiful colour. I’ve just not found the perfect way to pull it off yet. Whereas Barbara I could easily wear every day… but I won’t because it’s far too precious I don’t want it to get used up quickly!

Have you got any Audacious lipsticks? Which is your favourite colour?

    1. It is a beautiful shade, I’m not sure why I find it a bit intimidating to wear! I’m definitely a nude lipstick lover at heart. I can see why you’d be undecided, they have so many gorgeous shades in the range; Anita, Raquel and Vanessa particularly take my fancy! xx

    1. Hahaha aw, what an amazing present to yourself! They are such beautiful lippes. I will definitely have a look at your collection! Thank you for commenting xxx

      1. Yes. It feels nice to have them. It’s a guilty pleasure. I got these before the liquid lipstick trend and now that the trend’s about liquid lipsicks, there goes my money. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‰

        1. Nothing to feel guilty about I say ๐Ÿ˜‰ omg same! I’m quite addicted to liquid lipsticks too now, so hard to restrain myself from trying them all when I know I have enough lipstick to last me a lifetime already haha! They’re always bringing out something new to take our money lol xx

          1. Hahahah. Same! It makes it so hard to decide which lipstick to wear. And ironically, I dont usually wear my most favorite ones because I don’t want to consume them since they’re usually difficult to find.

  1. I love the lipstick shades, both colours look so gorgeous on you! I’ve always wanted to try Nars makeup products, but I find them to be slightly too expensive, specially when there are highstreet lippies with greater durability at a fraction of the price. But I think I may have just fallen in love with the Anna shade – it’s gorgeous!

    Lots of Love,

    1. Aw thank you so much! And yes I completely agree, lipsticks like this are definitely a treat because of the price tag and definitely a luxury rather than a necessity xD having said that, what a lovely treat they make though! They do make you feel good. I’m glad you love ‘Anna’ so much! Thanks for commenting xxx
