The Nars Audacious range is a semi-matte formula, which means the colour is intense and long lasting, but the texture feels like pure velvet and is dreamily comfortable.
I wasn't drawn to Charlotte to begin with. The Nars Audacious range has always called out the softer colours like Brigitte, Natalie and Juliette, but on a search for an epic red, I found myself mesmerised by the colour.
Charlotte is a deep red. It has some underlying berry tones in it which really enhance the colour, but overall it's more red than anything else. You may think this is one to be left for dolled up evenings, but Charlotte is a colour that can be worn every day too. Try it with a matte foundation, a hint of blush and mascara and you'll see how much this lipstick with captivate your day to day style.
Colour Intensity: very high
Finish: semi matte
Overall Rating: 5/5 - it's beautiful in colour, finish and wearability!
You'll like this if: you want to tempt yourself to a daring red
Perfect for: evenings out / every day / date night / wanting to impress
Avoid: if you can't pull off heavy reds. This colour draws attention so if you suit softer shades, I would stay away from this
