Today I am reviewing my first ever NARS lipstick, a shade that had me bewitched, it was love at first sight color for me and the shade is called ‘Janet’.
Haunting my dreams for months, I was jumping with joy when I finally saw NARS Audacious lipsticks being sold at strawerry.net and it took me just a few minutes to place the order for this gorgeous color Janet and grab this beauty safe and sound in a week’s time.
Product Description: Dramatic Depth. Unstoppable Character. Modern lipstick so shamelessly seductive in touch and texture the sensation is audacious. Unadulterated luxury glides on like satin across skin with single-stroke coverage. A spectrum of 40 shades for unstoppable impact.
My Thoughts about NARS Janet Lipstick:
Packaging: The Audacious lipstick comes in an elegant matte black square shaped packaging with a magnetic cap that snaps shuts when put on. The packaging looks expensive ad is very sturdy.
Shade: Janet is described as a “deep magenta”. The color is a deep, bright berry red with hints of purple/blue undertones that would look gorgeous on any skin tone especially Indian skin tone. The color is in-your-face kind of brilliant, bold and beautiful.
The purple tinge in Janet is what makes it different from any usual berry lipstick. It is perfect for ethnic wear or parties/weddings. The shade is a true head-turner.
Texture & pigmentation:
The lipstick is creamy and applies like a dream. It is insanely pigmented and a single swipe leaves the perfect color lay-off. The lipstick doesn’t feather or bleed. It settles more or less into a matte finish that doesn’t even transfer easily. The color survives a meal easily and leaves a pretty berry tint on the lips that eliminate the need for a re-application, atleast for me.
NARS Janet stay put for 6 hours on me with a meal in between. I haven’t noticed much color transfer which surely increases the staying power. The color disappears evenly and doesn’t settle in fine lines.
What I Like:
- Gorgeous berry color with hints of purple.
- Insanely pigmented
- Dreamy creamy texture
- Suitable for all skin tones
- Luxurious packaging
- Great staying power
- Survives a meal
- Doesn’t transfer much
- Color doesn’t bleed and fades away evenly
- Available online
What I Dislike:
- The price- but NARS is a luxurious brand.
