NARS Brigitte Audacious Lipstick is one of the 40 colors in the NARS Audacious Lipstick Collection released by NARS in celebration of their 20th Anniversary.
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.
Its luxurious, pigment-rich formula glides on intense, full-coverage color in a single stroke. A specially embossed bullet, dressed in a matte-black metallic case with a magnetic closure, reveals a strikingly sculptural design.
NARS Brigitte is classified by NARS as a nude rose, which is how it looks in the tube. Swatched on my arm, it looks more like a medium warm rose. On my lips, NARS Brigitte is a very gorgeous, rosy pink that will be good as an everyday color.
One swipe is all it takes to create an opaque color because it is very pigmented. NARS Brigitte has a beautiful satin finish and the texture is creamy and smooth. It doesn’t settle on the lines on my lips and it doesn’t accentuate the dryness of my lips. Brigitte glides easily on the lips and stays for a good 5-6 hours. After eating and drinking, though, I had to reapply it because only the outer parts are left. I have a habit of licking my lips when eating, so this is probably just me. 😉
I bought my NARS Brigitte Audacious Lipstick for Php1,650 from NARS Glorietta in Makati. With the not-really-surprising Php200 price increase, it is well worth paying that price because Brigitte is perfection! You can also get NARS Audacious lipsticks at Nordstrom and Sephora for $32.

Unlike previous NARS lipsticks, the Audacious collection are housed in a matte-black metallic case and NARS is embossed in the bullet.
