Beauty Makeup My Signature Classic Red Lipstick

My Signature Classic Red Lipstick

I never thought I’d say this, but I’ve found my perfect classic red lipstick! Meet NARS Audacious Lipstick in Carmen.

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Carmen Review

It’s a blue-based red that brightens my entire face, the hallmark of a truly complementary red lipstick. The color is so vivid it’s almost electric, but in a way that maintains the integrity of a classic red. Each of the Audacious Lipsticks is named for iconic women that influenced NARS founder Francois Nars, so I can only dream of who this particular Carmen might be, but if I had my way it would be inspired by my childhood fashion icon, Carmen Sandiego.

I haven’t paired Carmen with a liner yet, though if I did I’d use Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-on Lip Pencil in 69. I have been loving it on top of Buxom’s Lip Foundation in Naked (clear). It’s a slightly tacky lip primer that helps creamy lipsticks stay in place, matte lipsticks glide on more smoothly, or prolong the wear of any lipstick. I’m obsessed!
