Nars X Man Ray Les Amoureux Coffret is the limited edition of four deluxe sizes Audacious Lipstick packaged in a beautiful art “looking-glass”. The packaging is not just for a show. It is sturdy and can be used for a trinket holder or display of anything that matches its size.
It costs AUD $80 or USD $55 and it is available from Mecca stores in Australia and in USA, this lipstick set is a Nordstorm exclusive. The net weight of the lipsticks is 4 x 2.3g or 4 x 0.08oz. I think this is such a good deal as one full-sized Audacious lipstick costs AUD $49 or USD $34. There are four ravishing neutral shades included. Two are the cult-favourite Barbara and Jane, while Ady and Ardon are limited edition shades.
The formula is exactly the same as the full-sized best-selling NARS Audacious lipsticks. It just glides along the lips, very pigmented as well as creamy and long-lasting.
The brand described it to be very pigmented to give full coverage in single-stroke and it is also so shamelessly seductive in touch and texture.
NARS Les Amoureux Lipstick Coffret Shades
- Barbara is described as tan rose shade that gives the most natural look on the lips. It is the perfect lipstick colour for “your lips but better” shade.
2. Jane is a terracotta rose that creates a rich but neutral coral pink shade on lips.
3. Ady is a nude coral that is a great colour for everyday wear.
4. Ardon is a deep dusty rose shade with pink undertone.
Upon application on my lips, these lipsticks stays for at least six hours without touch-ups. I am quite impressed with them. The texture and formula are just perfect, there is nothing I can complaint about. Pigmentation is absolutely beautiful. What we see is what we get in a single swipe. Not patchy, just smooth and creamy on the lips.
There are some colour transfer but it is as expected from the standard lipstick. We have the option to use lipliner or not. The colour stays put, it doesn’t smear or smudge on my lips.
Overall, this set is to die for, especially for lipstick lovers. From the price, texture, pigment, colour selection and longevity, they are just a great investment.
