Need a reason to get a new lipstick for fall? The NARS Audacious Lipstick Collection boasts a dizzying array of 40 colors, 10 of which are retail exclusives at Barneys. Ranging from gorgeous nudes to dramatic reds and bold pinks, these creamy full-coverage lippies deliver intense color in one swipe. I love the new lipstick case as well — sleek matte black with a magnetic closure.
The Anna shade is described as a smokey rose. On my lips it looks like a cool rosy mauve. Jane is described as a terracotta rose but on me it looked like a warm muted orange with a slight hint of brown. The ultra lightweight formula has a great feel (not too slippery) and it isn't drying. On average it lasted about 4-5 hours per application.
Available ($32 each) at www.narscosmetics.com and Barneys New York. The Audacious Lipstick Collection will be available at Sephora and other department stores on September 1.
