NARS Holiday 2017 Audacious Lipstick Coffret Trio Review, Photos, Swatches

Holiday 2017

NARS Holiday 2017 Audacious Lipstick Coffret ($79.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes three, full-sized Audacious Lipsticks in a keepsake box. The box was actually a lot nicer than anticipated–it had enough heft, included a mirror when opened, and would work well for storing any small bits and bobs (I’m using mine for some earrings). All three lipsticks were consistent with the Audacious formula: pigmented, creamy, and long-wearing. This set is a great deal if you’ve been looking for these shades as to buy them separately would cost $102 (instead of $79!).

Dominique

Dominique is a muted, medium purple with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. The color coverage was opaque in one layer, while the consistency was smooth, creamy without being too slippery, and easy to maneuver across the lips as it never dragged. It wore well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.14 oz. – $242.86 Per Ounce

For those unfamiliar with the range, the lipstick is supposed to have “full-coverage, creamy wear” that’s “long-lasting” and hydrating. I tend to find most of those claims to be true except that not all shades are hydrating (usually lightly hydrating to non-drying) and wear has been between four and eight hours depending on the shade with richer reds and the like wearing longest.

Vivien

Vivien is a medium, rosy plum with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The lipstick had excellent color payoff in a single pass, which covered the lips evenly and smoothly. It was creamy without being too slippery, thick enough to keep out of my lip lines but never felt heavy on, and felt comfortable to wear. This hue stayed on well for six hours and was lightly hydrating.

Carmen

Carmen is a vibrant, medium red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a cream finish. It had intense pigmentation that drenched the lips with opaque coverage in a single stroke. The lipstick was creamy, smooth, and comfortable to apply and to wear, but it was a smidgen too slippery initially so it wasn’t as controllable as would be ideal. This shade lasted for over six hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
