My Take on NARS Audacious Lipstick Angela:
The shade am sharing today is very close to the previous one – Silvia and hence I have attached a comparison picture for easy reference. I picked this out of curiosity as I love tones of purple and fuchsia and this was the nice option to choose from.
Shade: Angela is soft and subtle slightly muted shade of Fuchsia Purple and is very close to Silvia, there is very slight difference between the two which is hard to judge if you see them closely, but as an ardent makeup lover and NARS fan I decided to pick this up. If I have to choose 1 shade between the two I would go with Angela any day.
Texture: The texture of these as you can see in swatches is creamy and has little bit of sheen to them; it glides easily and sits pretty without making my lips dry at any point of time. There is no slippery feel and the lipstick itself has a nice body.
Pigmentation: The colour “Angela” as the last one is superbly pigmented and is opaque in one single swipe.
Staying power: The lipstick stays nicely for 4 – 5 hrs, there is initial transfer but the lipstick itself is long staying and doesn’t settle in fine lines or bleed and at the same time it goes off very evenly and doesn’t leave my lips dry.
Packaging: The Lipstick is housed in rectangular magnetic closer tube. It looks classy but not sleek.

Review by Rashmi
[alert-note]Such a lovely colour and so close to Silvia. but as you have mentioned, even I would prefer Angela over Silvia any day because it has less purple which makes it more easily wearable. Beautiful swatches Rashmi. I envy your lipstick collection. 😛 [/alert-note]
