NARS Audacious Lipstick Jane

Beauty addicts everywhere have been gushing over this lipstick! I caved into to the hype and purchased one of the NARS Audacious lipsticks during the 20% off VIB sale this November. I knew that the shades I was dying (Anita and Anna) would be sold out online, as many shades had disappeared from Sephora’s online stock during the sale – so I snagged Jane (that sounds dirty, doesn’t it).

Jane is anything but an ordinary girl as her name would imply. Yes, I’m referring to the lipstick as a her. She is described as a terracotta rose and she reminds me of a more neutral and brown version of Rimmel’s Coral Chic.

Online photos are a bit difficult for judgement calls on which lipsticks may or may not look good on you. If you are considering NARS Audacious lipstick in Jane, it might help you to know that the foundation shades I wear are Make Up For Ever HD foundation in 118 Flesh (for light skin with beige undertones) and CoverGirl Ready Set Gorgeous in 220 (Soft Honey).

Soon after I placed my order on the last day of the Sephora VIB Sale, I headed back to my local Sephora to exchange this lipstick for Barbara (sorry, Jane). I liked this orange shade, but I didn’t think I would reach for it as often as Barbara (described as a tan rose).

Before making the switch, I bought my unused Jane to the store and asked to try on both shades to compare them for myself. Jane was the last lipstick I tried on and I wore it for a good 4 hours before taking these photos. I also ate a pear, which is why the inner corners of my lips are a bit faded in the photos above.

Overall, I’m impressed with the longevity, the comfort level and wear of these lipsticks and I would recommend  that you check them out if you are in the market for a luxury lipstick.

  • Thank you so much for adding this: “Online photos are a bit difficult for judgement calls on which lipsticks may or may not look good on you. If you are considering NARS Audacious lipstick in Jane, it might help you to know that the foundation shades I wear are Make Up For Ever HD foundation in 118 Flesh (for light skin with beige undertones) and CoverGirl Ready Set Gorgeous in 220 (Soft Honey).” That information really does help! I have very pigmented lips, so I also like to know how pigmented a blogger’s lips are. Sometimes I see someone with a perfect sheer lip, but I realize it will look completely different on me because the blogger has paler lips than I do. I very much appreciate that you worked to give us a complete picture by including your foundation shades.

    • I’m glad that helps! Mind you, I didn’t add that I don’t consider my lips to be very pigmented at all. These lipsticks are very opaque, though.

    I got the Natalie NARS Audacious lipstick which is a very nice coral shade, but I’ve still got my eyes on Anna (of course) and Vera! I’m hoping they come back in stock soon! xo

    • Natalie looks stunning! I’m thinking of waiting until the next sale to pick up the Anna and Anita shades. Hopefully, by then I will forget about this lipstick lol I have enough already.
