Monday Obsession: NARS Audacious Lipstick Collection

Your favorite new lipstick awaits.


Your favorite new lipstick is here.

When my Shoppist partner in crime and assistant editor Marina came to work last week, she was wearing the most divine lipstick ever. I generally wear a pale gloss, so I leave all the lipstick sleuthing to her—and she always delivers.

She was wearing one of the 40 shades featured in NARS’s fall collection, called Audacious. The lipsticks are super-pigmented, so you get a rich, intense color with a single swipe. (No lip pencil needed!) It’s not ultra-matte, either, so it feels more like a user-friendly creamy gloss, but the color is long-lasting: I watched it last all day on Marina, even through lunch and coffee number two.

You can find NARS Audacious at Bluemercury, $32 each. Buy it online here.
