  • "This lipstick is on the pricey side but it is totally worth it . its the perfect creamy matte and it comes in a variety of colors its last all day long ." in 248 reviews
  • "Nars is such a great great brand! I am so so in love with their lipsticks! They have such pretty colors that provide a long lasting use. They are not as cheap as any other lipstick from drug stores or from any other brand, they are expensive but worth buying! These are so so soft when applied into the lips and gives them a great amount of moisture so they don't crack." in 100 reviews
  • "This is a lipstick that's worththr price and hype. Creamy, comfortable, long-lasting and not drying. I wouldn't say it is hydrating like a lip balm but this did not make my lips peel unlike other lipsticks. I would buy other colors but with that price tag I have to make sure it's something as wearable as this Anna shade so I can use it everyday." in 69 reviews

Review for: ANNABELLA, BRIGITTE, Other more...
NARS’ Audacious Lipsticks are richly pigmented, creamy and long-wearing. They feel very hydrating and comfortable on the lips. I own the shades Anita, Annabella, Brigitte, Claudia, Mona and Rita.

I love that these lipsticks are named after classic style and beauty icons. As always, the NARS’ packaging is super chic.

My most worn shades are Anita (antique rose), Annabella (poppy red) and Mona (mahogany.) I would advise using a lip liner with the reds and deeper shades so that they won’t bleed. I don’t think that the $34 price tag is too steep considering the high quality of these lipsticks.

Review for: RAQUEL more...
Perfect pinky nude for every day!!! The satin finish is completely comfortable and hydrating. It stays around a bit when eating or drinking. There is some transfer to a cup but the color stays behind on the lips with this formula especially for deeper shades. Raquel is a lipstick I would totally repurchase after finishing. The bullet is easy to stay within your lipline so you don't need a liner. I wish they were vanilla scented but it is completely orderless. Sometimes non scented lippies have a plastic smell but this doesn't yay! NARS Audacious is a lipstick range that is worth the price.

Pricey, but definitely worth it. If you want a more sheer formula, their regular line of lipsticks is for you. If you want a creamy, pigment-rich, luxurious lipstick, pick up any of their Audacious lipsticks. The packaging is sleek and has a magnetic closure, which is a really nice touch. The lipsticks have a nice satin finish and they apply like an absolute dream. I’ve tried my fair share of lipsticks and nothing comes close to how beautiful this formula is. I’ve also found that these last a decent time on the lips and are easy to reapply.

This is probably the most expensive lipstick I own and at first I was pretty apprehensive buying such an expensive lipstick, but now I totally understand why. The color payoff is the best I’ve ever tried. It’s truly one swipe and BAM! Full opacity. The formula is rich, creamy, and smooth. This doesn’t noticeably dry out my lips either. This is a very comfortable formula with it being a semi-matte. I have Anna which is a pretty rosy color. It has good staying power as well. I don’t have to touch up much unless I eat something that’s oily.

This is the perfect daytime color lipstick for me. The color on me is a light dusty pink. In certain lights it does look a little too pale pink (that’s why I’m knocking off a star) it lasts for a really long time. It also doesn’t feel too dry on the lips which some Matt lipsticks can feel. It’s also great on me as a base lipstick which I’ll sometimes darken up with another shade. Overall an awesome color for me. I can see it suiting people of all colors.

This hardly lasted 3 hours. If you check out my photos in my blog exploringmakeupinmy40s you will see by the pictures it was in need of reapply by 3 hours. By 6 hours there was only a ring around my lips. By 9 hours it was only in my wrinkles. Amazingly enough this was a really drying product! I expected a lot more out NARS. Felt like this was a complete waste of money. I will never spend time reapplying all day. So disappointed in this product!

Nars really kills it on the packaging for me. I know other people hate what they’re throwing down, but I adore it. I picked up this lipstick from Sephora during a VIB sale. The color is gorgeous and the formula is nice. The lipstick glides right on. That being said, I don’t often splurge on lip products because they are so easily dupable and I find this to be the same. While I really like it and the color is perfect for me, it isn’t worth the cost when you could get something similar from Revlon or Rimmel.

Review for: ANNABELLA more...
I tried this color out on a limb. I didn’t realize that it was the perfect red color for my skin tone. I use this for formal events rather than every day but I get quite a few compliments. The formula is wonderful, creamy but not drying. The formula wears down evenly and it is one of the best lipsticks I have ever used. I have two other colors from this specific product. I absolutely adore the magnetized packaging.

This color is absolutely fit my skin tine, I'm Asian. The first time I try on and walk out on the street. I just feel everyone looked at my face. (Never feel this before) My friends also gave me a lot of compliment about this shade. There is one bad part is after 3-4 hour my lips feel dry and doesn't look as beautiful as the beginning but I can accept it cuz the color so nice.
