The Nars Claudette Collection lipsticks are definitely so beautiful! Not only is the packing super pretty, but I am in LOVE with the audacious formula. This is actually my first time trying out their audacious formula and I am so, so, so pleasantly surprised with it! The claudette collection is inspired by Francois Nars’ mom. I am assuming these are the colors she loves to wear and I have to say, Mama Nars, I love your style!

The Nars Claudette Collection Lipsticks look so well thought out and put together. The box are so beautiful that I didn’t want to throw it away LOL. It’s such a nice holiday color that fits perfectly with the Christmas theme. It’s a beautiful red box with gold lettering. Ah, I love it!
The color names are on the top of the box and from six available colors, I chose four!
THE COLORS I CHOSE
I chose all of the audacious original formula which is a satin formula. There are only three colors in this formula, by the way. They are Augustine, Léa, and Claudette. I also chose one color of the sheer matte formula which is called Bérénice. The original audacious formula is in the black packaging and the sheer matte is in the red.
Augustine is a taupe nude that reminds me of Mac Whirl! It is so pretty on the lips and it looks really nice against my olive skin tone. Usually, if something is too cool toned, it will look off on me for some reason. The audacious formula applies so evenly and easily!
Léa is described as a spiced rose and I think the description is perfect! It’s the color that most interested me. It is very fall!
At times, it kind of looks like a brick red color but at times it’s just it’s own unique color. I can’t decide!
Claudette is a rust red lipstick that surprised me. Honestly, when I read rust red, I just don’t know what to expect. I’ve tried these colors before it doesn’t look rusted! LOL It’s a warm orange red which suits me so well! I don’t look good in blue toned reds at all and I know this because I own one and every time I wear it, I feel cringe. I REALLY like this, too!
Berenice is described a warm brick red. This one didn’t really interest me. What is sheer matte? I was actually just curious when I purchased this one. I wanted to try at least one in this formula in the Claudette collection. I chose Bérénice because I just don’t want the other two. The color looks like a coral red on me versus an actual brick red which would be warmer and a little bit deeper.
This formula reminds me of the Mac Powder Kiss lipsticks which I don’t like at all and I really don’t like this formula in the Nars collection, either. It applies weird and sort of patchy. It also took forever to get a good color payoff but I think that’s the point. SHEER. If I was a person who preferred sheer lipsticks, I would maybe like it. I’m not though, but then again I don’t like the formula so I probably would still not like it.
WATCH THE VIDEO!
The video above shows arm swatches and swatches on my lips! I am a light medium skin tone with an olive undertone for reference. Overall, all the color are really pretty and I think they did a great job with the audacious lipsticks. I prefer some over the others, but that is my personal opinion! They have an eyeshadow palette and a blush cheek duo! I didn’t pick those up, though. What are your thoughts on this? Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you on the next post!
