Nars Audacious Lipstick Natalie Review and Swatch

November 16, 2014

I was recently ‘challenged’ by a tag on Instagram to show my one-and-only favorite lipstick. I thought that was such an interesting challenge to take on as it is near mission impossible to only narrow down to one favorite lipstick from my collection! I have been thinking about this tag seriously for days and the one that popped into my head the most frequent was the Nars Audacious Lipstick in Natalie – partly because it was one of my recent purchases, and partly because this was the perfect pink I had not seen for a while!


You probably would have read tons of reviews on the latest Nars Audacious Lipsticks, so I’ll keep my review short and sweet. Out of the entire range, I only picked up one color which is the Natalie. It wasn’t because I didn’t like the other colors, but as soon as I swatched this on my lips, I thought I found the lipstick.  I haven’t bought Nars makeup for a while as I just couldn’t put up with their rubber packaging. But I am very pleased that this new release comes in sturdy plastic tubes, and the formulation is as divine as you could get from a premium luxury lipstick – it applies silky smooth and evenly with only one coat required for full coverage, and feels lightweight and creamy on the lips. The more I wear this one the more I am infatuated with this new range, and I will definitely be picking up more colors in the near future.


Natalie is a bright and fresh neutral pink with a hint of  coral undertone. There is something in this color that just makes it a standout for me, as if it is custom made for my complexion (NC15-20)!

it looks stunning on you – actually reminds me of another lipstick Nars Niagara – have you tried that? It’s a bit pinker / more coral but another beautiful shade – I reviewed it here

love your blog, always inspiring and beautiful pictures x

Thanks for doing this “lipstick challenge”, Reika!
This color indeed looks fabulous, and I can imagine how flattering it is against your skintone!

I’m still so much into the muted rose color of the YSL Le Rouge Couture The Mats – actually so much that I already picked up a backup of it, since it’s a limited edition color! But this Nars Natalie is very tempting me now! 🙂
