NARS Audacious Lipstick Collection Stylized B.png

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the cosmetics brand NARS has unveiled a new lipstick available in an impressive 40 shades.

Two decades ago, NARS made its debut at Barneys New York with a collection of 12 lipsticks. Now, more successful than ever, the brand is celebrating its anniversary by honoring the product that started it all.

Named the Audacious Lipstick Collection, the new line includes an impressive 40 new shades, including 10 to be launched exclusively at Barneys. The colors are named for women who have inspired the brand’s founder François Nars throughout his career, and actress Charlotte Rampling was chosen as the face of the collection.

Formulated with nourishing ingredients such as tamanu oil and mushroom extract, the new lipstick has a matte finish and is rich in pigments, promising total coverage in just one stroke.

NARS Audacious Lipstick, $43, is available at all NARS counters from September 19. For more information, visit and follow the brand on Facebook and Twitter.
