Jacynthe Rene, founder of JMagazine, recently released her new makeup…
These are a few of my favourite things: nude lipstick, NARS and things named Julie. So when I spied with my little eye the NARS Audacious lipstick in the shade Julie, I had to have her!
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.
First let’s talk about the formula for Audacious. It’s super freakin’ creamy, opaque in one swatch and feels like butter on your lips. It’s one of those lipstick formulas that will make you justify any price tag (but don’t worry it’s $39 CAD/$32 USD, less than a Chanel or Tom Ford).
The shade Julie is a nude pink that leans a bit on the warm coral side. It is a beautiful “not too light, not too dark” nude shade for us neutral fair skintone ladies. (And also, it has the coolest name).
I like to pair it with MAC’s Prolongwear lip pencil in Morning Coffee to make it a nice almost 90s nude look.
The formula is really smooth on my fairly chapped and dry lips. It actually feels like lip balm on!
