In January when Selfridges sales had a 10% beauty I knew it was the perfect opportunity to get my hands on a much coveted NARS Audacious Lipstick. My first top choices of shades were sadly out of stock, but in the end I settled for the Selfridges exclusive option, Julie. For a lipstick this pricey I knew it had to be a shade that I could easily pull off and one that would look gorgeous for the upcoming spring/summer.
As you can see Julie is a nude shade with a touch of coral through it, which is just beautiful. The packaging is another stunner here as it's all about the matte, sleek black encasing with a magnetic close, so you can be sure it never accidentally pops open in your bag, etc. I love the shape of the applicator tip, perfect to apply it straight to the lips without the use of a brush.
Now the best thing about this lipstick for me personally is the formula; moisturising, comfortable to wear yet a matte finish with long lasting power. What more could you ask for? Whenever I have this on my lips I seem to forget I am even wearing lipstick, it just feels that natural. The only niggle is that if my lips are dry to begin with, this lipstick will not let me get away with it as it emphasise the problem & my lips are not a pretty sight. But alas spring and summer are supposedly on their way so I know my lips will be in much better condition when the warmer weather is here & I'll be wearing it non stop.
Have you got your hands on one of the NARS Audacious lipsticks yet? Which one is your personal favourite shade?
