NARS Spiked Audacious Lipstick Review and Swatches

Today I am excited to share with you part two of the NARS Holiday 2018 Color Collection.*  I previously shared details and swatches about the Hot Tryst Cheek Palette, which you can find here.

The studded silhouette design of each bullet is simply stunning. It’s a design that is captivating from every angle. You will likely twirl it around a few times twisting it open–it’s truly a work of art. I also adore that each one is dressed up in limited edition packaging.

It glides on like satin across the skin and achieves single-stroke coverage that leaves lips with captivating color, dramatic depth, and unstoppable character.
