|Above: NARS Audacious Lipstick in Dominique, Kelly, Julie, Marisa and Vanessa; they are all exclusive shades to Barney's NY.|
Here is my video review of the recently-released (and entirely incredible) NARS Audacious Lipstick (initially featured and swatched HERE) in five shades exclusive to Barney's NY: Julie, Vanessa, Marisa, Dominique and Kelly (currently available at Barney's NY, Nordstrom, Sephora and NARS.com).
I also included my first impressions of the hotly-anticipated YSL Fusion Ink Foundation in B40 Sand (currently available at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Sephora and Saks). I will be preparing detailed review soon...so far, I love it!
Kindly scroll on for the video and images of all five shades on a human face as well as the Bottom Line...

Bottom Line: The NARS Audacious Lipstick (currently available at Barney's NY, Nordstrom, Sephora and NARS.com) is utter magnificence and I am so glad that I have distinct shades in my possession! With regards to the YSL Fusion Ink Foundation, I will continue to experiment with it over the next week and will weigh in with an official review (with swatches, of course) in the near future.
Have YOU tried either? Thoughts?
I hope your week is off to a marvelous start...xx and much more soon!
