Nars Audacious Lipstick in Grace

Happy belated New Year everyone! Things have been a bit hectic over here and I have been ill over the festive season unfortunately, so the blog has took a bit of a back seat.

That being said, I of course, took full advantage where possible of the online sales and that includes this baby. Nars Audacious lipstick in Grace. I decided to go out of my comfort zone a little in terms of shades that I normally go for, pink and fuschia. I researched all 40 shades that Nars released on Temptalia and decided to go for Grace.

Firstly, the packaging is beautiful. The magnetic closure is such a luxury aspect and I love that I can't lose the lid quite as easily. The standard matte black works well for me too!

Nars Audacious Lipstick Grace Review
 Grace is a gorgeous, bright, coral-red with warm undertones and a satin finish. The pigmentation is as good as all Nars products and one swipe is a good enough colour amount. It doesn't feel particularly moisturising, I have very dry lips all year round, so notice this more than others. The consistency is creamy and application is a breeze, but I do personally find that using a lip brush gives a much more even coat then directly from the bullet. Average wear is around 4-6 hours, much less when eating and drinking of course but it's pretty enough to whip out of your bag to re-apply.

Overall I love the shade and it's great for a pop of colour, when I leave the rest of my makeup minimal. I'm not one for wearing much red or coral shades so this is definitely stepping outside of my usual colour range.  I'm already eyeing up the next shade I want to buy, which is Michiyo (so predictable).

Have you tried Nars Audacious lipsticks? If so, which is your favourite shade?
