NARS Audacious Lipstick - Anna - Review

Happy almost weekend everyone!

The NARS Audacious Lipsticks are HUGE right now in the online beauty community.  I knew I had to get my hands on one after hearing all of the excellent reviews.  I chose the shade Anna which is an everyday wearable color and one of the most popular.

NARS Audacious Lipstick Anna

From Sephora:

What it is:
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. 

What else you need to know:
“Embrace the audacious in everything, especially your lipstick color. It’s liberating, exhilarating, empowering.”—François Nars, Creative Director

This product is an Allure Best of Beauty winner.

The packaging on these lipsticks is super sleek and simple.  The most fun part is they have a magnetic closure.  You just put the cap near the base and it clicks closed because of the magnet. 

Sephora carries 30 shades of this lipstick, you can find 40 shades on the NARS website, and Barneys has some shades exclusively to them.  I bought the shade Anna at Sephora.

Anna is described as a smokey rose.  To me, this is a mauve shade with a splash of orchid.  This lipstick has a semi-matte finish on my lips.  As can be seen in the photos, NARS is etched in the lipstick itself.

This lipstick is rediculously pigmented and opaque!  The wrist swatch below was done in one swipe (actually 2 since it's a wide swatch).

I LOVE the color of this lipstick!  I own a lot of mauve colored lipsticks and this one is really unique because of the slight orchid in it.

The NARS Audacious Lipstick applies really easily and just glides on the lips.  I've seen reviews claiming that this lipstick is hydrating, it's not but it also doesn't feel dry either.  It's kind of neutral and really comfortable to wear.  One swipe is all you need to get full color payoff.  It lasts a few hours on me without eating or drinking.

I LOVE the NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anna!  At $32 it is a bit spendy but I'm glad that I bought it.   This would be a great item to add to your holiday wishlist.  I'd love to have more of these but at this price point, it's just not going to happen unless someone would like to get me some.  :)

Do you own any of the NARS Audacious Lipsticks?
