Christmas with NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anita

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anita Blog Swatch before and after Review
IT’S CHRISTMAS EVE! I am so excited to celebrate Christmas with my family because “it’s the most wonderful time of the yeeear” (you know you sang it in your head). I've done all my Christmas shopping way in advance, frozen my gym membership a month (or two) ago due to the fact that extra fat provides extra insulation (obvs), and I've trained myself to eat man portions in the run up to Christmas so that I am prepared to feast on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

What made me more excited the other day was that I got to open my first Christmas present! It was a secret Santa gift from work and I was so surprised and happy to find my first NARS Audacious Lipstick in there! I've never actually tried NARS Cosmetics before, I've always been meaning to once my MAC makeup runs out. I've always heard great stuff about it, which is why I wanted to share with you guys my first impressions of their lipstick.

I absolutely love the packaging of the lipstick. It comes in a matte-black metallic casing with 'NARS' glossily written on. What makes it a tad more luxurious is it's magnetic enclosure to seal the lipstick shut - making sure it doesn't somehow come undone in your makeup bag or handbag. Oh, did I also mention that their logo is also imprinted on the lipstick itself? What a nice touch!

The shade that I've received is called Anita. Described as 'antique rose', this colour is a neutral beige pink - which does pull off as quite warm when swatched.

The consistency of this lipstick is crazily smooth! It slides on like butter and with just one swipe on each lip, a full coverage was achieved. It is a very hydrating lipstick and yes, it is very easy to apply. However I found that if I did slightly over apply, a bit of product can transfer onto my teeth. So you have to be careful with the application - especially with it's consistency.

The longevity of this lipstick is okay. It managed to stay on my lips for a good 2 hours or so (that's without drinking or eating). Once I started to drink or eat, the moisturising layer did start to fade but the pigment was still secure on my lips. I would say touch-ups are needed after around 4-6 hours depending on how much you're drinking and eating. I am impressed though! Normally the wear-time of non-matte lipsticks are much poorer.

I do really like the shade Anita on my lips, it's such a pretty nude colour! I'm definitely wearing this on Christmas Day tomorrow. It'll be a nice change from the usual red. I am really impressed with the performance of NARS Audacious Lipstick. I already want to try out other shades! What do you guys think of their lipsticks?

Also, this will be my last post of 2016! I'm going to sign off until the New Year because I'm heading off to Berlin after Christmas to celebrate mine and Sat's 4th year anniversary, which happened earlier in the month. Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you all have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year! See you soon!
