I am SO late to the party with NARS lipsticks. I mean, the regular lipstick line. I adore the Audacious range quite a bit,but, never tried the regular lipsticks until last week. I can already tell you, I’m a massive fan.

I picked up the shades Pigalle and Banned Red during the Sephora sale, while the shade Rosecliff was sent to me for review purposes. I love the names Banned Red and Rosecliff, and while searching more about these lipsticks, I found out that Pigalle is named after the famous red light district located near the Montmartre hill, Paris. It has *ahem* some naughty shops and such.

Anywho, Pigalle (semi matte pink chocolate), Rosecliff (soft rose) and Banned Red (mulled wine) are all beautiful, everyday shades with different finishes. While Pigalle is a gorgeous browny pink color in a semi matte finish, Rosecliff is a muted milky pink nude, in a cream finish. While, Banned Red is a gorgeous red rose color in a sheer finish. All of them are simply stunning on, and perfect round the year.

I have a weakness for matte lipsticks, particularly nudes. But, these lipsticks, in all the finishes are very hydrating on the lips, and my eternally dry lips don’t peel or feel dry at the end of the day. The obvious con being they are not as long lasting as other lipstick, but that is fine with me, as I don’t mind reapplying twice or thrice in a day.

I also love mixing my lipsticks together. I love creating my own custom shades, and love mixing liquid lipsticks and regular lipsticks. And these are beautiful on their own, or as liquid lipstick toppers.Particularly, Rosecliff. This shade is a nude on it’s own, but when I use this to top a liquid lipstick, I apply this just to the center of my bottom lip and it just gives such a beautiful, fuller appearance.

    My first introduction to this line was the shade in Funny Face. I also love the Audacious line! It does not disappoint! Nice review!

      Wow ! That shade is like ‘wham’ ! So bright and lovely ! I love their Audacious line as well. But, if you like the 90s trend happening currently, you’ll love these Dom ! ❤️

    I actually don’t think I’ve tried a lipstick from their regular line! Maybe it’s time to try!

      Yes ! I think you’ll like them … If you like Charlotte Tilbury Bond Girl, you might like Pigalle. Pigalle is more pink and just beautiful Jenn ! <3 🙂

    Rosecliff looks like such a beautiful shade! I am a massive fan of Nars (they might even be my favourite makeup brand) but weirdly I’ve never tried their lipsticks before!
