The Perfect Nude

I apologise in advance for the overload of NARS posts on my blog lately, but as I have said, I'm addicted. As I've now moved to Nottingham to study I decided to check out what shops were on offer. To my delight I stumbled upon a Space NK and well I just had to buy something because I have no self control when it comes to a beauty counter. 

I had heard a lot of good things about the NARS Audacious Lipsticks and in particular the shade Raquel which I believe it their most popular seller. After a lot of swatching and testing out all of the beautiful lipsticks I decided to go for the Raquel lipstick as it is such a beautiful nudey, peach which is such a perfect daily wearable shade. I've tried the lipstick out a fair few times since I bought it and found the product itself to be very creamy and non-drying which is great for the colder season approaching. The packaging is just amazing, it feels so luxe and has good weight to it so is a lovely addition to anyones make up bag. The lasting power of the lipstick wasn't that great though as I found the lipstick just rubbed straight off when eating or drinking which is a bit of a pain for a £24 lipstick. Given that, I will probably buy another one in the future and compare to see whether it is just because it's a light shade and whether perhaps a darker shade may last a little longer on the lips. 

Have you tried out these lipsticks yet?
