NARS Audacious Brigitte

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Brigitte | Review

I wasn’t able to make the most of NARS Audacious Brigitte, the last Audacious in my lipstick stash. When I checked all my lipsticks for viability several days ago, I found my tube of Brigitte smelling (mildly) like rancid cooking oil. That said, the texture and color is the same as when I got it. On the NARS website, Brigitte is described as nude rose. I don’t detect any nude or rose to be honest. I would describe the shade medium pink coral. It doesn’t suit my light-medium yellow olive skin tone when applied full-coverage — I think it ages…

Nude Lipstick Swatches feat NARS and MAC

I didn’t realize that I had more nude lipsticks than any of my lipsticks in other color groups.  All of my nude lipsticks are very recent acquisitions.  I recently got interested in them the same time I got interested in wearing non-neutral eye shadows.  I found it difficult to experiment with eye colors when all of my lipsticks are either bright or really dark.  Shout out to Romzs because her FOTDs partly got me into this (here she is wearing NARS Raquel). For purposes of this post, ‘nude lipstick’ means pale/pale-ish lipsticks that I can’t wear with a bare face.  Also, same as the recent…

NARS Audacious Anna Lipstick Review and Swatches

If you’ve stumbled upon a few of my lipstick posts, you might have already noticed that I’m not one to style and/or take photos of untouched lipstick bullets. Ain’t got time for that. I find taking photos a chore. I don’t derive satisfaction from it. It’s the part of blogging that I just want to get over with. I like talking about makeup more. I imagine that some people get OC-ish for me after seeing the photos on this blog. A few non-blogger friends do go out of their way to tell me when my photos look too dark, too blurry, or too green, etc. At least two of my friends volunteered to correct my…

NARS Audacious Jane Lipstick Review and Swatches

When news first came out that NARS is releasing 40 new lipsticks… I was like: Are any of them matte? No? Hmmmm…. K. But 3 weeks ago, I found myself at the NARS Audacious launch and now we’re here I don’t know if it’s because the lipsticks are really THAT good or because I didn’t have high expectations, probably both.  I was so blown away by the formula and pigmentation that I can’t NOT get at least one of them. I was initially interested in Dominique (because that’s the only shade I remembered). But when I tried it on, it looked grayish…
