The new Nars Kabuki makeup brushes are here, and they…
Lipstick lovers! The new Nars Audacious lipstick colors ($32) are here! The 10 exclusive colors were photographed at the 8412 Melrose Blvd Nars store; you can see all 40 colors at the Nars website (or at any Nars or Barney’s NY counter) NOW, and then all over the usual places that Nars hangs out in, in September.
I love the 3 pinks pictured below, neutral wear-with-anything pink Vanessa which Nars calls “mauve nude,” the dark, deep pink Vivian, or “red plum” according to Nars, and a brighter, “warm pink” Marisa, are 3 of the high-impact pigmented Audacious lipsticks. Nars says, “swipe, blot, go,” and that’s correct. A lady always has a tissue. One quick swipe gives you intense color that wears well for about 4 hours with no touch-ups and gave me good pigment when I did touch-up with just a Burt’s Bee’s Pomegranate lip balm – my secret hydrator.
The collection has reds, pinks, mauves, nudes, browns, purples and wines. There truly is something for everyone. I love the warm tones that Nars always has. My pink lipsticks need a shot of warmth so that I don’t look like a corpse, and Nars somehow mixes just enough warm and cool tones (Dolce Vita is a prime example).
Tell me which one you like best!
I have a whole, yes, Nars lipstick HAUL to show you, and this MAKEUP HAUL will be up for your viewing pleasure this weekend, 16 colors or so, so please check back! I have some new liners and Satin lip pencils, too. If you are wondering why the “haul” is knocked up so you’ll notice it, please see the piece : Makeup hauls: vlogger vice or makeup delight? from a few weeks ago and you’ll understand my haul conflict/adoration. See if you agree!
Nars is just brimming with new and lucious things to fill your makeup bag with: the Dual-intensity eye shadows, the smokey eye kit, new Satin lip pencils and new liners… a whole new nail collection AND the Phillip Lim 3.1 nail collection. WOW. The blues in the new nail polish collections are a-Mazing.
The formula plumps, hydrates, smooths and softens, but feels like almost nothing (I like Nars satin lipsticks because they feel so light, too).
The Audacious bullet is specially shaped and embossed for this anniversary collection. I like the crisp edges. The Audacious case has the usual lovely Nars embossing and a heavy little matte metal magnetic case. Classy.
Now, in celebration of its 20th Anniversary, NARS pays tribute to its beginnings with the launch of The Audacious Lipstick Collection: lipsticks so shamelessly seductive in touch and texture, the sensation is absolutely audacious.
Available August 15, 2014 at NARS boutiques, NARScosmetics.com and Barneys New York. September 1, 2014 at Sephora, sephora.com and Dept/Specialty Stores.
Thank you Phuong, for letting us see the colors on your lovely lips!
