When the NARS Audacious Lipsticks first dropped I’m sure you were wondering, “Why would I want to spend $32 on a lipstick?” One, because it’s NARS and NARS is awesome. Two, because the Audacious formula is amazing!
I know this is only the second Audacious Lipstick I’ve tried but I’m seriously impressed and dying to get my hands on some more. Michiyo was a treat but Janet is pure perfection! It’s a bright fuchsia with cool undertones and fine blue shimmer that gives it a subtle blue shift. Janet isn’t the most unique color in the world but the blue shift really sets it apart from other pinks I’ve tried. It was a little hard to capture in the swatch but it’s a little more noticeable in person. Especially when the light hits it. So gorgeous!
Janet applies just as beautifully as it looks, too! The formula is creamy, lightweight and incredibly pigmented. It applies with full coverage in a single swipe and doesn’t cling to the lips too much. Janet is very dry lip friendly as it’s not drying at all and it doesn’t emphasize flakes or settle into lip lines. It’s a lipstick that’s very easy to wear and lasts all day long too. Janet wears quite comfortably for around 6-7 hours before beginning to fade into an intense stain that just doesn’t quit. I honestly can’t rave about Janet enough! I just wish it wasn’t so darn pricey!
