So, when NARS released a few new shades to their Audacious line, I knew I had to get my hands on them.
Today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on four of the new Audacious Lipsticks, they are: Kate, Apoline, Stefania, Shirely. If you’d like to learn more about these lipsticks than keep scrolling down!

NARS Audacious Lipstick Review
I’ve always really liked NARS packaging. I know there’s a bit of controversy with it since the packaging can pick up dust and gets finger prints easily, but in my opinion all packaging gets dirty over time and unlike lots of other packaging – you can simply wipe off NARS products to get it looking like new again. In addition, I really like the simple and sleek packaging, it looks refined and elegant.
The formula of these lipsticks is what got me hooked on them in the first place. They are extremely creamy and moisturizing on your lips, so they are perfect if you’re like me and struggle with dry lips.
These lipsticks do apply thick and really coat your lips. Since they do apply so thick, you don’t need to build the colour up at all – one swipe, and your lips will have the exact colour you see in your lipstick tube.

Longevity & Transfer:
I found that these lipsticks do stay on for approx. 3-4 hours just depending on how much you’re drinking / eating throughout the day.
Since these lipsticks don’t set, I found that simply pressing my lips together after drinking would fix any patches of lipstick that had transferred.
At about the 4 hour mark, you’ll notice the colour has faded and you’ll want to reapply just to get that bold pigmentation back again.
Of course, like any lipstick – the NARS Audacious line has it’s issues. Since they are such a soft and creamy formula they do transfer.
They aren’t liquid lipsticks that apply, set, and stay on your lips.
If you have a drink or eat something throughout the day than expect 1. to see transfer, and 2. to need to reapply. For me, this isn’t really a deal breaker since I love the formula so much.
Admittedly, they are expensive at $39.00 (at Sephora)
These lipsticks are simply amazing and I couldn’t recommend them more! They are some of the most comfortable lipsticks to wear, they are super moisturizing, and the lipstick shades are really beautiful. At $39.00, you may not be able to run out and purchase them all – but go to Sephora, find your perfect shade, and treat yo’self!
