Am back with a lipstick review after naa jaane kitne saal! I have been caught up in personal matters and am dreadfully late to share this amazing and my first tryst with NARS cosmetics. My relative brought a couple back from abroad and this was one of my chosen shades (yes am a huge nude lipstick freak) Presenting our focus of today- Nars Barbara from the Audacious lipstick collection. We already have a review and swatches on a doll pink shade from this range called Nars Michiyo. Today we talk of nude lips!

 

NARS Claims: Dramatic Depth. Unstoppable Character. Modern lipstick so shamelessly seductive in touch and texture the sensation is audacious. Unadulterated luxury glides on like satin across skin with single-stroke coverage. A spectrum of 40 shades for unstoppable impact. Barbara is a tan rose shade.

  • One-stroke, full-coverage creamy wear

  • Luxurious texture and enriched with ingredients to smooth and nourish lips

  • Long-lasting

My Review:

The packaging of these nars audacious lipsticks is so so luxurious and sexy I could have died then and there. It’s a square matte black sturdy tube with a magnetic click cap which swivels and shuts like magic. I adore it! (fingerprint and dirt-catcher alert!)

The texture of these nars lipsticks is surely another sixer NARS scores! Light, buttery smooth, applies like a dream even on dry lips and never accentuates lip lines or flaws! It is not at all heavy/sticky and is a sheer delight to apply and reapply.

In spite of being so buttery and gorgeous, the pigmentation of thus audacious lipstick is top-notch as well and you get full color in a couple of swipes! Totally impressed.

The shade Barbara as described by NARS, is certainly a rosy tan shade and one of the best nudes for my complexion I have come across! It does not wash me out but neutralizes my lip color to the right pinky nude with a satin finish. I usually apply clear gloss over it to emphasize it.

The staying power of Nars Barbara is quite great actually which is surprising considering its buttery texture and stays easily on my lips for 4 hours + and does not leave my lips parched after wearing off.

Do I recommend? I am so angry at sephora for not bringing NARS to india. These audacious lipsticks are buttery smooth, gorgeous, comes in a plethora of gorgeous shades, has great pigmentation and sets into a sexy satin finish.
