NARS Anita Audacious lipstick: review

 

NARS Anita Audacious Lipstick-2

 

I purchased NARS Anita Audacious lipstick from Mecca Cosmetics on a whim. It was the first time I had seen the Audacious line in person, and I was so impressed with the formula it took all my self control not to pick up another few. I chose Anita because I have very few matte neutral pinks- NARS Pure Matte lipstick in the shade Bangkok is pretty, but awfully dry on the lips.

Anita Audacious Lipstick is described as an ‘antique pink’.  On me it’s an opaque neutral to cool pale-ish pink with some pastel undertones- on cooler skin tones it seems to pull a little warmer- Anita looked spectacular on one of  the Mecca sales girls, who has pale porcelain skin.

I find cool to neutral pinks difficult to pull off because they tend to bring out yellow tones in my skin and make my complexion a little bit sallow- Anita is just on the verge of being too cool on my skin when worn opaque, but looks nice when worn sheer.

Anita has a satin to matte finish, excellent colour payoff, and impressive wear time for a light shade (3hrs). It’s neither moisturising nor drying on my lips (but like any pale-sh colours, it looks best when lips prepped)
