NARS are busy celebrating 20 beautiful years in the make up game and to celebrate have launched a 40 shade collection of Audacious lipsticks, 10 of which are exclusive to shopping mecca, Selfridges. Nars Francois started out with just 12 lipsticks which proved to have a huge impact on the industry and so saw only fit to revisit where it all began and release a lipstick collection to mark the occasion.
Here are a few I have to play with, let’s take a closer look.
The shades have all been named after women that inspired Nars Francois and come in new sleek (magnetic) packaging!
Creamy, matte, with dense ‘single stroke’ pigmentation. These promise to give you long lasting colour with an ultra smooth, soft matte finish along with the following traits:
- Micro-sized lipid spheres for fuller looking lips
- Portulaca Extract with natural peptides for hydration
- Tamanu Oil locks in moisture & protects against environmental damage
- White Mushroom brightens the skin on the lips
These last really well, I found I could press my lips together to refresh the colour easily without them drying out and I love how intense the pigment is. After a meal, the colour did shift a little, but if you eat daintily enough, you’ll do minimal damage!
NARS Audacious lipsticks will set you back £24 a pop, but my oh my, aren’t they pretty?
