|NARS Audacious Lipstick in shade "Anna"|
Although I have done make-up posts before, the is my first proper beauty post! I didn't understand why I didn't do them more often, and then I remembered how difficult it can be. It's a little tricky to do beauty posts that I'm happy with, most of the time it's because I'm lacking a nice "clean" background and good lighting. Anyway, I thought I would give it a try today!
I bought this NARS Audacious Lipstick in "Anna" a few months ago in Florida. Nars beauty products are impossible to get hold of in France, so I make the most of it whenever I'm in the US!
- I was looking for a deep rosy color, something that you would associate with an English rose. I did initially want a more muted natural rosy color, but I fell in love with the swatch: it's definitely more of a statement lipstick than a natural looking lipstick!
- First of all, the bullet packaging is gorgeous: sleek, sophisticated, and it's magnetic! Which means the lid can just stick to the side so you don't end up losing it and accidentally stepping on it.

- I didn't line my lips as the tip allows a really precise line, unlike other lipsticks with a more rounded or even flat tips. It's creamy but no shine, and it doesn't dry my lips out. I would say it lasts up 3 to 4 hours with re-applying, the color fades a little but still looks good after an afternoon out. I love the contrast between the shade and my skin tone, my paleness makes the color stand out more. With this shade, I make my lips the main focus of my make-up: minimalist eyes, just a little bit of mascara, a soft pink blush and maybe some contour if I'm feeling it.
