I rarely stray from my favorite nude and pink lipsticks; I’ve never been a huge fan of bolds, and I have a hard time finding red shades that flatter me. What I do have a weakness for, however, are really dark, vampy purples. I find that these colors are more unique, and definitely more striking than your average bold.
I ordered Nars Audacious Lipstick in Liv from the Sephora VIB sale, and I am so glad I did. This deep eggplant is really stunning, and I think that it is a shade that will suit a multitude of skin tones – I have never received so many compliments from strangers about my lip color before!
Because this shade is so dark, I highly recommend pairing it with a lip liner to ensure that your lip lines are even [and this makes color stay put for longer]. Mac’s Nightmoth, a dark plum, [and the darkest liner they have] is the perfect companion to this lipstick.
