  • "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

I own this in the shade “Apoline” and have never had a softer, richer lipstick in my life. The formula of these is hands-down the best classic lipstick one I’ve encountered. The price is steep for a non-luxury branded lipstick, but you get what you pay for in this case. The shade I own is close in color to Smashbox’s “Audition,” which I also own, but I gravitate towards this one way more. The cap is magnetic too and adds an expensive feel to the product. Outstanding quality and well worth the investment for such a stunning lipstick!

Absolutely beautiful formula and the color is so flattering on my fair, neutral skintone. Really love the smooth application, the rubberized packaging that feels so luxe, and how this is a creamy composition rather than matte or shimmer (which seem to be the only kind of lipsticks you can get these days haha) The color is kind of a browny rose, medium depth and tone I'd say. Looks really good, and I can imagine it is quite universally flattering.

Review for: SILVIA, DOMINIQUE, AYA more...
I bought these lipsticks from  Nordstrom Rack for a steal at only $15!!!  I've been wanting to try them for a long time because I know that NARS products are excellent quality but I was hesitant about paying $34 for lipstick.  I'm glad that I made my decision.  The formula is very smooth and easily glides onto the lips.  The colors are opaque and pigmented.  These are not matte lipsticks nor are they transfer proof but the color did last through lunch and dinner. 

Some of my favorites are Dominique (medium muted purple), Silvia (medium-deep fuchsia) and Aya (deep chocolate brown).  Dominique is slightly darker and shinier than M.A.C Cosmetics Lipstick Men Love Mystery.  Silvia is very similar to  TOM FORD Boys & Girls Lip Color in Jack.  It's a deeper purple than  NARS Audacious Lipstick in Angela and a little brighter than M.A.C Cosmetics Lipstick  Daddy's Little Girl.  ColourPop's Friends is a perfect dupe for Aya.  It has a similar warm undertone and cream finish.

Did I mention that each lipstick has a magnetic top?!  This was very surprising.

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.

I have this in a million colors. I used to love them but realized their are other lippies out there with better staying power. These transferred just sooo much. I decided to pass these along to a family member and started a new collection.

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.

Review for: VIVIEN more...
Love this color and it apply so smoothly and with full coverage. It’s rather pricey but worth the splurge. Love the magnet top so it doesn’t fall off in your purse. I would definitely buy it again if I had the money to do so.

Review for: RAQUEL, ANITA, VERA more...
This lipstick formula is very opaque and creamy. A little goes a long way. I prefer it in the more nude colors because it’s a lot of maintenance in a bold color like Vera. It does wear off rather quickly when eating or drinking
