NARS Arnera Audacious Lipstick is a vibrant, deep pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered my lips with smooth, even coverage, though there was a smidgen of product that sat in my deeper lip lines. The consistency seemed slightly thinner and more emollient than the average shade in the formula, so the end result didn’t seem as flattering on my lips as I’ve seen it be! The texture was still lightweight, creamy, and comfortable to apply and to wear, though. It stayed on well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
NARS Canoga Audacious Lipstick is a bright, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging or dragging. The texture was lightweight, creamy without being too emollient, and dense enough to adhere for longer-wear but still be comfortable to wear over time. This shade lasted nicely for six hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.
