I don't own many Nars products as of yet, but I have been hooked on the sheer glow foundation and definitely converted to trying the lipsticks and blushes soon!! If you're on the hunt for a classic red, then this is the shade for you! I can't recommend this shade enough and it's just what I have been looking for when it comes to a nice everyday red. This has been a positive start to my Nars lipstick collection, and I can't wait to try the other shades from the New Audacious range, soon to be released Late September/Early October in the UK at Urban Retreat!!
I always find it difficult when it comes to picking the perfect "red" especially because most red lipsticks can make my skin look completely washed out with the similarity clash to my hair colour! However I instantly knew this shade would make the perfect match, so if you're a red head this shade will look stunning against your skin tone and hair and really compliment your complexion. If you're not a red head, this shade will almost certainly look even more incredible on you, and it makes the perfect shade of red for all skin tones and hair colours.
I think everyone should own a classic red in there lipstick collection and the Nars Audacious Lipstick in Annabella will make the perfect start with the beautiful "Poppy Red" shade and creamy formula, that just glides on and I also find it very moisturising. I would not say this shade is bold, and I find it very flattering to wear during the day and in the evening as it just blends nicely with a fresh faced make-up look, and looks ever so chic with casual outfits, especially if you don't wear much make-up and like to keep things basic, this lipstick will look great. I really like how this shade instantly brightens and opens up my eyes and and makes them look more light blue in appearance and suits my skin tone perfectly.
I adore how sleek the packaging is and another great thing with this lipstick is the fact the lid has a magnetic closure, that helps prevent the lipstick from opening up in your handbag and making a mess. The formula is very hydrating and nourishing and it's the best lipstick I have used that lasts for hours once applied! I have seen this lasting on me for well over 3-4 hours and that's without eating but even when eating the lipstick stays well but I do like to re-apply a fresh coat after. This lipstick formula from the new Nars Audacious Collection will come in perfect for those with dry and more moist lips!! It's definitely a shade that will look absolutely stunning on every skin tone and a true must have that I will most certainly be buying again and again!!
The Audacious lipstick range has depth and a very rich texture and satin formula that lasts for hours! The ingredients are very nourishing and give incredible volume to the lips whilst smoothing them out. I already have my eye on two shades in "Charlotte" A gorgeous deep plum for A/W and "Julie" The perfect nude pink they all look so luxurious and the quality is even better, especially for the price.
