I've been loving satin anything lately. And it's no surprise that this involves my beloved NARS. And I can earnestly say that the Audacious range contains the best satin lipsticks you'll encounter. And I'm aware you may think I'm blatantly bias here given my overall obsession with this beauty brand, but a quick search on the internets and you'll find nothing but raving reviews from people from all walks of life. Personally I've acquired around six different shades from both the matte and satin formulations. From classic reds like Annabella to the ultimate vamp Liv. When it comes to neutrals Raquel has been my one and only, despite being known to don Anita here and there. It's always a quick fling and I'm running back to my revered Raquel in no time.

Because of a few drug store bad eggs matte and satin lipsticks tend to have the incorrect fallacy that these types of lipstick have the vexatious tendency to dry out ones lips or be not-so-lasting. Honestly I've found the Audacious line to be continually consistent in terms of pigmentation and hydration. Have you tried a shade from this range yet? Did you draw the same conclusions as I did? Because I'm yet to encounter a shade that dries or burrows into those ghastly crevices on my lips. And in terms of wear, I've been pleasantly content with their staying power. Especially considering application, which in one swipe is all you need. Even when consuming food or drink, it doesn't become obvious nor blotchy but another lick of lipstick doesn't hurt either.

The shade Raquel is a satin finish and has a soft, peachy rose tint. Perfect for any complection really. I've worn this both when I've been deathly pale during the winter months to glowingly fake tanned during the warmer months. On my complexion I found that during my paler moments my skin tends to bring out the rose tones more and when I'm slathered in a chic shade of brown, the peachy orange hues are nicely prevalent. It's an ideal shade for both casual or dressier needs or work to play. The colour is subtle so it makes it perfect for when you don't want to leave the house bare lipped, but don't want to look overly done up. Au naturel. It's also exceptional paired with a sultry, rock 'n' roll smokey eye.

In regards to the packaging, I'd spend my money for this alone. A minimal matte black case with a fine but glossy wrap around logo on the base. It's as beautifully sleek as the contents it protects. There's also a magnetic closure that snaps both parts into their corresponding position. Aside from being quite entertaining, this is ideal for the usual wear and tear of life and travel because you need not fear silly accidental wastage disasters when the lids of lipsticks become dislodged. Cost wise they tend to be more on the pricey side but it's well worth it in my opinion. Like they say, you get what you pay for and this line my friends, is well worth parting your cash with because it's generously exceptional for the price.

xoxo

  1. It looks like a great colour and sounds wonderful! Your necklace in the pics caught all of my attention though, haha! For someone with such a love of statement necklaces I sure do have quite a small collection of them!

  2. I love those lipsticks! I have about three of them. My favorite part is the packaging, and the reason I love it so much is because it doubles up as a bobby pin collector. I always throw my bobby pins in my makeup drawer. Anytime I need to find one, I always notice that they somehow magnetized themselves to the lipsticks. LOL!

  8. I usually don't wear lipsticks, since they don't suit me. I recently tried matte lipstick and I look like a gypsy. These look adorable. Thanks for recommending, S.!

  13. Hi Sonia, I have heard a lot of the audacious range from Nars and everyone loves it. The lipsticks look amazing esp. the shade Raquel. I would pick that one too. I wish the brand were available over here too. You can only order it online and I hate to order cosmetics online :D I want to see the stuff with my own eyes ;-) Wish you a happy Friday!

  23. I love nars products including the lipsticks in matte finish since I don't satin. I'm in the process of switching foundations from mac to nars as well and I'm loving it so far. Great colors, and very well pigmented too.

  57. The NARS Audacious lipsticks are probably my favorite high-end lipsticks. You're right, they are very much worth the price (although if they were cheaper I wouldn't complain). I only have one, but I would love to add a few more colors to my collection. Next time I'm in Sephora I'll swatch Raquel and see how it goes with my skin tone!

  59. I only have the shade Fanny and it's definitely lovely. Frankly, I prefer YSL lipsticks to Nars but then again, I might be a touch bias because I do adore YSL in general. LOL!

  60. Haha we sound similar on the packaging front - some cosmetic packaging is worth the money alone (I'm looking at you, YSL!). Really though, this lip shade is to die for - I couldn't stop staring at the final image!
