My Experience with NARS Audacious Lipstick in vera and Janet

I was dying to try out the NARS Audacious lipstick range. They really took the market by storm.

Today I am reviewing two beautiful and rather similar colors from the range.

Vera : A beautiful deep berry toned red.

Janet :Β A deep magenta red.

  • These are suuuper pigmented lipsticks. One stroke and you get an opaque finish on your lips.
  • Id’ call these a satin finishΒ lipsticks. But after a few hours these look pretty matte though.
  • The audacious lipsticks apply easily without any tugging.
  • Both the colors are gorgeous and super flattering for all skin tones. However between the two I found Janet to be more unique from the range. Not saying Vera is any less stunning on its own.
  • The staying power is just incredible. These stay around 6 hours on my lips and still there is a stain on my lips until I really wipe off the lipsticks with a makeup remover.
  • These make lips look good and do not accentuate the fine lines of the lips. However I would still say that you exfoliate your lips before using these.
  • They don’t smudge or smear. I always feel the color is tattooed on my lips for all day long. πŸ˜€
  • I found the pigment of Vera to be more long lasting than Janet. However whenever I have to touch up the lipstick, I don’t have to bother about removing the left over lipstick from my lips. As I said the color feels tattooed on the lips so you can easily build up the color after a few hours without worrying about it caking up.
  • I did not find these lipsticks hydrating but these are not drying either. Super comfortable wear. However, after a few hours you might find your lips to be a bit drying. You may apply a lip balm or reapply your lipstick.
  • There is no smell or taste to these lipstick.
  • These transfer but not too much after they have settled down for an hour or so.
  • The packaging is gorgeous black matte casing. The bottom is magnetic so the cap closes with a satisfactory click. You canΒ play sticking a few NARS Audacious lipsticks to form the engraved ‘NARS’. πŸ˜€
  • A ton of shades to choose from for all skin tones.

So I’d do a quick comparison between a few lipsticks. Are these better than the Gucci Lipsticks? I’d say these are. But Gucci lipsticks are more moisturising and hydrating. Are these better than the Tom Ford Lipsticks? I’d say they have a tough competition.

Higgghly recommended. πŸ™‚

Wow! Loving the shades on you – both look equally stunning! Strangely, my experience with them has been different. Maybe, different colours in the range perform differently. Will review them this week.

I wonder if it’s the lipstick complimenting you, or you complimenting the lipstick. Should be the latter one only πŸ˜‰
