NARS Audacious Lipstick Fanny & Janet : Close Comparison
Hello WiseShe Beauties,
I recently reviewed the shades Vera, Olivia & Janet from NARS Audacious Lipstick range. I happened to haul 5 shades from this range and somehow while swatching the lipstick shades one day, it occurred to me that two shades which I got are almost similar in shade and that it is quite confusing for one to decide on which shade to buy and which one to leave!
Fortunately, I have both the shades with me so call it my advantage or disadvantage, I have come up with a clear comparison between the shades and this will help others to choose one out of these as there is no point buying the similar shades of lipstick which also happen to cost a bomb!
Lets have a look at the basic features of the NARS Audacious lipsticks and then we can have a comparison with regards to the shade and suitability on various skin tones!
About NARS Audacious Lipstick
NARS describes these lipsticks as, “A modern lipstick that dresses up lips with bold coverage and ultra-soft texture. Debut weightless, color-saturated lips when you smooth on this NARS Audacious Lipstick. It glides on like satin across skin, and achieves single-stroke coverage that leaves lips with captivating color.”
- One-stroke, full-coverage creamy wear
- Luxurious texture and enriched with ingredients to smooth and nourish lips
The audacious lipsticks’ range by NARS is quite popular and I have been lot of praises by makeup addicts all over the blogging world. There are around 40 shades in this range and I picked up 5 from this range which was a pretty tough choice as the shades were simply irresistible.
Price– INR 2354. I got it on discount of 10% from Strawberry.net
Packaging– These high end lipsticks come in an outer cardboard box which has the brand name written in bold. The lipstick packaging is a rectangular black case which holds the lipstick. The packaging speaks everything classy!
Texture– The texture of both of these lipstick is almost the same. Both the shades have a creamy moisturizing texture and not too drying for the lips! The matte finish looks very superior and have a subtle soft sheen with gives a beautiful dimension to the pout!
Shade Comparison– Coming to the crucial part i.e. the shade comparison of Fanny & Janet. The shade Janet is more of a deep magenta shade with cool raspberry undertones in it. It gives a hint of a berry shade more than being a deep pink shade! On the other hand, Fanny is a deeper shade than Janet but looks more of less similar on the lips because it is also a cool toned berry lipstick with slight pink undertones!
Both these shades when swatched together hardly look different and one can easily skip buying one or the other shade!
These shades are going to compliment all skin tones except very dark complexions! Both these shades are great in pigmentation and go opaque in a single swipe! For those who have pigmented lips, both these lipstick shades will easily hide dark lips beneath and one can pick any of the two shades!
My Thoughts about NARS Audacious Fanny & Janet
So, in my opinion there is no point in purchasing both of these shades because these shades look very similar and have a very slight difference!
Also because there are pricey lipsticks, so one can try some other shade from the range instead of buying such a shade which has a close resemblance to each other!
As you can clearly see in the swatches how close they look when swatched on the hand!
Well, I hope I made my point and hope you like this close comparison! I think we can have more such posts so as to save readers from buying similar shades!
I will review the shade Fanny is detail in the coming days and then you can have a clear idea!
Hope you like it!
