A rich bright pink can easily perk up a makeup look and the cool tone of Nars Audacious Lipstick in ‘Michiyo’ is the perfect balance between fashion and sophistication. Of course summer is the season to whip out the brights but paired with a warm brown or diffused grey eye makeup, this gorgeous Nars hue is a fun alternative to the expected wine and red lip colors that always make an appearance in fall makeup collections.

I purchased this lovely lipstick in Beverly Hills and caught a pretty cool free lipstick case engraving promotion at the Nars counter there. Now I just need a vintage lipstick holder to keep the matte black looking fresh! (I also bought a second lipstick for my mom in a more muted coral shade ‘Jane’ & got it engraved with her name.) The flash makes the lipstick appear glossier than it is in real life. The Audacious lipstick formula is best described as a natural satin finish – somewhere between matte and satin.
