Recent NARS Favourites: Audacious Lipsticks and Algorithm Gifting Set

NARS is my favourite brand right now. That’s right, I’m a self-proclaimed NARSissist. I want to tell you about a couple of things that I can’t live without at the moment, because these products are gorgeous and genius and OMG-wanna-buy-now!-worthy.

NARS Algorithm Gifting Set *($68) from the Holiday 2014 collection is a set with the infamous Laguna Bronzer and a mini Ita Brush. Believe it or not, this is the first time Laguna and I ever met, and I am kicking myself for that. I see why Laguna is widely loved: its effect is apparent but soft, glowy but not disco-ball. Right now, in the middle of winter, it injects life onto my dull skin and I like it!

For colour, nothing beats lipstick to perk up a tired face. Every time I’m at Sephora, I feel a strong gravitational pull towards the NARS counter to look at NARS Audacious Lipsticks ($37). I bought two shades, Audrey (red currant), and Anita (antique rose).  I want moar!!! There are many things to love about the new Audacious lipstick line: the matte black metallic packaging with the magnetic closure, the one-pass opaque coverage, its superb longevity, the 40 shades to choose from (I want to collect them all). Right now I am seriously lemming Barbara (tan rose) and Brigitte (nude rose), too.

  • I must confess that I have yet to try the brand. I have a couple things that I bought in a recent trip but I haven’t tried them yet!

    • Ohh what did you buy on your trip? Try them out. I’m sure you will fall in love!

      • I bought the radiant concealer, eye primer and two lip pencils!

  • Whooo I have Anita, too! Love their bronzer.

    • Hey Whitney! Do you think you’ll buy more? What kinda lipstick shades are you drawn to?

      • Maybe! But not soon. I like to try different things from different product lines usually rather than having a lot from one line, and I also have Vivien. Recently I’ve been drawn to neutrals lately, just because they’re just so much easier to just swipe on in the morning without thinking, and I usually have some kind of smokey eye already.

    YES! I have both Audrey and Anita and they are gorgeous. I’m looking at Charlotte now, but it’s sold out here. I also want a deeper red, but so many choices!

    • You know what’s funny? You’d think that with so many choices, beauty junkies would be so overwhelmed, but I think the opposite has happened. Everyone wants to CATCH. THEM. ALL. LOL!!

      NARS does amazing reds! I am on a nude/neutral kick right now though, but I know I’ll start looking at the corals soon, too. 🙂

  • UM HELLO. You are gorgeous. Those two you have are the ones I want, and the next two you want are also on my list, LOL. Thanks for enabling 😛 The next time I feel the need to treat myself, I’m getting one.

    • Hahahaha great minds! Get Audrey first. She’s gonna look gorgeous on you!

  • Dimples!!! ^.^ These products are gorgeous on you (especially that bronzer), but I think your killer cheekbones are stealing the show a little. 😉

    • 😀 Thank you Rae-whale!

  • I haven’t felt the need to try these lipsticks until now! Love love love Anita on you — it’s perfect for the summer!

    • It would be really nice for summer! I think it would read less pink when we get our summer colour on.

  • Liz

    OMG YOU VIXEN. Audrey looks so awesome on you!

  • I’m a huge fan of the Audacious formula and both of those shades are stunning on you! A SA at Holt’s tried Laguna on me recently and I was so impressed with the flattering shade. Very nice on you too! 🙂

    • Isn’t Laguna so universally flattering? So great!

  • Audrey and Anita look really beautiful! And so do you, for that matter! Pretty pretty!

  • Wooo, pretty girl! Anita is on my list, but looks way more pink in store (the only reason I don’t have it yet) than the more neutral shade here. I want to see Anita on your lips! I do have Barbara though. Go get it. Run, don’t walk 😉

    • Uggh every time I see Barbara swatches I get a twitch in my stomach. LOL I want!

  • You look like such a beautiful little beach bunny!

    • LOL thank you Kristen! You crack me up!

  • LOVE them both on you!! These are my fave lipsticks as you know. I should have got that big ass Laguna bronzer, I don’t have it. I wonder if it’s still at The Bay?

  • You’re so glowy and pretty, Geekz! +.+

    Maybe I’ll go look at these lipsticks… I’m lemming an oxblood lip right now.

  • i really love anita on you actually! it is so bright and cheery!

  • Man. those lipsticks look amazing. I MUST try Anita.

  • You look so beautiful!!! I have only Anna as far as the Audacious lipsticks but Audrey is on my wishlist too!

  • I have Grace and I like it but I’m not in love. I found the weird squareness of the bullet to be hard to apply, so I always need a brush. And the colour doesn’t last that long on me. I have Rimmel lippies that are easier to apply and a hell of a lot more long lasting. For the price, I prefer the YSL rouge volupte. But those colours look amazing on you!
