Good morning to you! Because I’ve got so many things I want to save up for, I haven’t been buying makeup lately. But just because I can’t buy doesn’t mean I can’t look, right? Since I l
ove torturing myself had some extra time on my hands, I stopped in to Sephora and decided to try something from the NARS Audacious Lipstick line. Not a full review, since I used this once and didn’t purchase, but enjoy some swatches!
First Impressions: Had to try this one because it shares its name, Claudia, with my mom. NARS also makes one named “Vanessa,” but Sephora doesn’t carry that one. Get your act together Sephora! NARS describes Claudia as a cool pink, which is true, but the cool undertones are more on the subtle side. You know how some cool pink lipsticks scream “I’m Barbie!” This is not that kind of lipstick. If anything it leans more raspberry and would even be a work appropriate color. Claudia is an elegant dame, after all. Because I tried this in store, I sanitized it and then used one of Sephora’s throwaway doe foot applicators to apply. Let’s get real: those applicators do not always give you the best results. However, this went on creamy, opaque and streak-free even with the cheap applicator, which means I can only imagine how lovely this formula is applied straight from the bullet.
So what do you think of this color? Has anyone tried NARS Audacious lipstick line? And if you’ve ever tried the shade Vanessa, let me know, would it be a nude on someone as pale as myself? I’m contemplating ordering it online. Let me know in the comments below and have a great Monday!
