Audacious Lipstick - Raquel

Good Morning Monday!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I was out of town with Miss Heidi in DC and had quite the whirlwind of a weekend. Visiting family, taking part in a special photo shoot and meeting up with good friends! Sadly, it’s back to work today and it’s always hard to get back in the swing of things after a fun-filled vacation. AND Christmas is right around the corner so it’s very hard to concentrate. 
There has been a lot of talk about NARS new Audacious Lipsticks. After hearing so much hype I decided to try one out. Per usual I chose Raquel which is described as a pink beige. I’m not quite sure I agree with “pink”, but it definitely has beige coloring. It’s more of a burnt beige if I do say so myself. Darker than I would normally choose for a nude lipstick, but the formula is amazing. Very creaming, not drying and very long wearing. My only complaint is that they need a lighter pink in the current collection, but I’m sure at some point they will. I would compare this lipstick to YSL Rouge Volupte. It doesn’t have the sweet YSL scent, but the long wearing, creaminess is close in comparison. 
I would definitely recommend this lipstick to anyone looking for a long wearing formula. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed and there are a lot of pretty colors to choose from! I’m tempted to try one of the darker berry colors next. 
If you’re a VIB Rouge member, remember today is the last day to use your $25 off $50 reward card. 
Let’s hope this Monday flies by – I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get home from work, climb into some comfy clothes, heat up some dinner and tune into ABC Family to watch Christmas movies!
