Whenever I have to shop from any brand that is not available in India, I tend to be really careful, I don’t want to end up with the shades I won’t like. You see, the shades look pretty different on different skin tones, so if you saw a swatch on a caucasian girl, it might look different on a darker skin tone. When I went to Dubai, I knew I was going to Sephora and buy lots of stuff, I had my list of shortlisted lipstick shades from Nars. I picked up a few and this, Nars Audacious Lipstick in Greta was one of them. I have been reaching out to this one quite often, so today I am going to review this one for you all!! Plus you can see how will it look on my skin tone! 😀
About The Looks!
The Nars packaging is awesome!! It comes in a black box which has the brand name engraved on it. Inside the box the lipstick is in a straight rectangular case which is black as well and has the name engraved (kind of) on the bottom part! The lipstick has magnet lock and would only close in a certain position. If you take the cap closer to the magnet and the angle is wrong, the magnet would adjust the cap itself and close it!! Its freaking awesome!! I love it!! The packaging is pretty safe, classy and beautiful!!

My thoughts and views about Nars Greta!!
This shade is such a versatile one!! Its a beautiful bright warm pink color which looks amazing on Indian skin tones! It goes with almost every eye look or any event for that matter!! It looks like a beautiful mix of magenta, bright pink and red colors! Which makes it super wearable for every skin tone!!
Coming to the texture and formula. This lipstick glides on to the lips like a dream!! Its super smooth in application, soft and light on lips! No patchiness or flakes. Keeps the lips hydrated all the time. Its not matte, its creamy, but Its not super creamy either. The lipstick has a tiny bit of sheen to it, which looks glam!
Pigmentation is superb!! One swipe and you get the color you want! A maximum of two layers are more than enough, though you wouldn’t need that! It doesn’t feathers or bleeds, but it does transfers a bit. Lasting power is also amazing as, it has lasted me for more than 6 hours with meals and drinks and no fading!!
YES!! Its a 5/5 lipstick and worth every single rupee!! I love it, it brightens up the face and looks beautiful on any skin tone for that matter! A great pick for Indian skin tones! The formula is beautiful and lasting power is great!! I would highly recommend this pretty one to all of you!!
