Blog Birthday Haul #3- Nars Audacious Lipsticks in Jane and Anita

The birthday-goodness continues, with the ever so popular product that a ton of beauty bloggers are raving about (and RIGHTLY so!), the Nars Audacious Lipsticks. Claiming to be a ‘one-swipe’ opaque lipstick, the creamy formula gives this satiny finish lipstick the most comfortable feeling when worn. I was very skeptical at first, but once I started swatching at my local Sephora store, I knew this line would soon become dangerous for my wallet.

First, let’s just admire the packaging. I promise I’ll be quick- but LOOK at them! So sleek and simple, with the added perk of the magnetized lids. This definitely feels like a luxe product!

The first color I felt myself drawn too was purely based on it’s truly unique color. Jane is described as a ‘terracotta rose’, and I think it really hits the nail on the head. If you know a cruelty-free dupe for this color, let me know, but I really feel like I haven’t seen a color like this before! It’s a medium-tone color in the collection, so not too dark but also not too neutral/light. I think this color is PERFECT for fall. If you were loving the orange-lip trend during the summer, Jane is your perfect go-t0 color for fall that fits the same bill.

Anita is more of your muted neutral color, leaning towards pink. Being a lighter shade, it definitely feels safe and kinda fool-proof. How could you go wrong with a color like “antique rose’? Even if I have a color like this in my collection, nothing  I own is as opaque, comfortable, or long-lasting as Anita, and I welcome it with open arms into my collection!

Of course I wasn’t just satisfied with just these two, and maybe a week later after purchasing this color I soon found a third in my hand. I’ll post that up tomorrow (unless you’re really curious- you can see me mention it in my latest haul video here! ). I think I’ll feel satisfied if I have 4 total, just so the packaging can spell Nars when lined up together. Great reasoning, right? Right. ^^;;; With a total of 40 shades, I don’t think I’ll have a problem decided on at least one more color! Do you have your eyes on any? Have you tried swatching these in stores? What are your thoughts?
