Welcome to my world of makeup, sweet scents and real talk. You should always have a cuppa to hand and sit back and enjoy a little snippet of my world! A beauty and lifestyle blog for all, but as I like to say it's also 'brown girl friendly'. As a brown beauty myself I ensure that all product reviews that are complexion based really show what works on a deeper skin tone as well as showing what's being catered for brown beauties!

Hi loves!
So one of my favourite lipstick formulas has to be that of the Nars Audacious lipsticks. They are a rich and creamy but long lasting formula which does not dry out my lips. At this point I should probably state that I'm referring to the traditional lipstick, the ones in the bullet type packaging (I forgive you for thinking otherwise since traditional lipsticks are going out of trend so quickly!)

Now when Nars released their limited edition summer 2016 collection, I'll be completely honest and say that I didn't really think much about it. It was only a few weeks later when I came across Kathleen Light's favourites video and saw that she had mentioned that she loved the Nars 
Lip Cover formula, that I decided to take a closer look at the collection. I'm so glad I did! 

This is the Nars Lip Cover which is described as a 'high pigment liquid lipstick. High fashion effect. Lip Cover delivers saturated slicks of coastal colour steeped in exclusivity and ease.'. Now, quite frankly I have no idea what that description actually means, so let me give you a more realistic and simpler description! 

These are basically a Nars Audacious lipstick, in a liquid formula. There. Simples. On the Nars website, they also describe them as having a 'rich and lustrous, luminous finish', which I completely agree with. As it suggests, these do not dry down matte and nor are they tacky (thank goodness! I'm not sure how many more tacky matte liquid lipsticks I can take!) but they leave a creamy, demi matte finish to the lips. 

The liquid lipstick is packaged in a slim line tube, with a doe-foot applicator. I have to say that the applicator is probably the thing I dislike the most about these liquid lipsticks. It is quite small and hard, as opposed to a more wider and fluffy applicator like some other liquid lipsticks I have tried. 

I purchased the colour 'Overheated', which is described as a deep dusty rose shade on the Nars website, and I have to agree. This is a great brown/pink tone for deeper skin tones to wear on an everyday basis without it looking too garish. The formula is very long lasting, as I found that even though it did not dry down matte, and it transferred, the liquid lipstick remained on my lips for a good 4 hours without application. Even after the 4 hours I did not need to reapply as I still felt the product on my lips, it had just lost its vibrancy. 

Personally, I would recommend using a darker lip liner when using this shade, however, this would not look terrible without it. This is rare for such a colour, so Nars have definitely done a great job in creating this shade. 

Would I repurchase this? Yes! The only thing I wish Nars would do (apart from changing the applicator) is to make this a permanent formula in their line. Please Nars? Just for me *wink*

There are four shades available in the range. They retail for £21.00 and can be found on the Nars website.

Let me know what you think about these if you've tried them! 

Speak soon,
