I might as well just get rid of all my lipsticks. I’m serious. The new Audacious Lipstick Collection from NARS is pretty amazing. Created to celebrate NARS’ 20th anniversary, it goes on so incredibly smooth, no tugging at all (and we all know how I feel about tugging – it’s a huge nope) and the pigment? Incredible. The only thing it lacks is a long-wearing formula, but who doesn’t secretly love touching up their lips with a stylish black-cased lipstick?

This is a one-stroke formula – it’s so deeply pigmented that you won’t need to layer or build it up at all. And each lipstick bullet is stamped NARS for an even more luxurious look and feel.

The collection houses 40 shades, including:

  • Claudia – cool pink
  • Michiyo – shocking pink
  • Greta – wild azalea
