Review: NARS Audacious Lipstick In 'Fanny'

Nobody throws a party quite like NARS does! In honour of their 20th anniversary, the brand threw a lipstick-palooza by releasing 40 (!) new shades. The Audacious Lipstick collection has a range of sultry lipsticks, from punchy corals to moody purples. After much deliberation, we decided to splurge on Fanny – a rich berry shade.

These lipsticks are packaged in a chic black tube, with a magnetic closure. The casing does attract fingerprints so be sure to keep it clean. Another downside to the packaging, is that there is no shade indication on it.

As far as the texture goes, the lipstick lives up to all its promises. It glides on smoothly, without any tugging. A single stroke provides opaque coverage and a satiny shine. The formula is non-drying, but does not hydrate lips either. Fanny is medium-dark berry, with cooler undertones.

We wore this lipstick for a morning meeting, and were delighted that the vibrancy lasted through till lunch. However, after a particular delicious slice of pizza, we realised that our lipstick had transferred, to leave behind a pretty, pink stain.

Although it has its fair share of disadvantages, we recommend that you buy this lipstick for its bold, silky and seductive shades. It may require sacrificing a chunk of your pay check, but the colour will never disappoint. Swipe on a coat and get ready to party!

Price: USD 32.00
