A modern lipstick that dresses up lips with bold coverage and ultrasoft texture.
What it does:
Debut weightless, color-saturated lips when you smooth on this NARS Audacious Lipstick. It glides on like satin across skin, and achieves single-stroke coverage that leaves lips with captivating color.
My Experience with NARS Anna Audacious Lipstick:
By now, you must be aware how head over heels I am in love with these lipsticks! This one is no exception, in fact I think I may like this shade more than the other shades in the bunch of 5 that I own mainly because of the uniqueness of this shade.
Packaging: Sleek black case with a magnetic closure.Same as all the others.
The shade Anna is described as a Smokey rose. It has very notable yet subtle notes of purple which is what attracted me to this shade in the first place. On me, it looks like a very MLBB shade but with a very unique twist. The hint of purple makes it different than any lipstick I own. It pairs well with every makeup look, whether it be a heavy night look or casual day to day look. It will suit most skin tones ranging from Fair to Deep.
The lipstick goes on with full opaque pigment in 1 swipe and will cover even the most pigmented lips. The lipstick applies smoothly and evenly without tug or skip. It does have a creamy sheen in the beginning which settles down to a semi-matte finish as the day wears on.
It feels very comfortable on the lips, does not feel drying but is not too hydrating either. It does transfer initially but the transfer becomes less as the lipstick sets after a few hours.
Since this lipstick is not as strongly pigmented as Fanny, the staying power and the stain it leaves behind are also less strong as compared to Fanny. The color stays on me for 6 hours and it does not leave behind a very strong stain.
It does survive through snacking and few drinks, but will not get through a whole meal. You do need 1-2 touch ups during the day to keep the fresh look on the lips.Overall ,needless to mention again and again; I am in love with this whole Nars audacious range of lipsticks. This shade Anna is one of my top favorites from the bunch; the other being Jane and Brigitte (Review of which is coming soon). I highly recommend this shade.
Pros of NARS Anna Audacious Lipstick:

• Good staying power though not as good as darker shades like Fanny
• Comfortable on the lips
Cons of NARS Anna Audacious Lipstick:
• Does not leave behind a strong stain.
