nars be audacious

Listen! I AM A MASCARA SNOB. You might ask, “what is that?” It’s wear you spend a little extra for good mascara. Not that I don’t love a good drugstore find, because I most certainly do. BUT, it’s a few things I require my mascara to possess (things snobs say)!


For me, bristles matter! Packaging matters! Design matters. I am a sucker for a fancy box. You know the bells and whistles. But you have to be careful with some of those whistles. They can be broken upon purchase. Like, you’re just paying for fancy box, the great mascara is sold separately–from another brand.


Fortunately, this is NOT the case for NARS Audacious Mascara!

nars mascara and liner

This mascara lends control unlike any mascara I’ve ever seen. The wand, exclusively designed with over 200 molded bristles and lengthening hooks evenly grips and coats lashes from root to tip while simultaneously separating, lengthening, and amplifying with every stroke. I know, that’s a lot. In short, this stuff ACTUALLY works!

This is first-to-market formula for NARS. Plus it’s long-wearing and stays soft and flexible, offering maximum buildability. And it’s super fancy because, Audacious Mascara was used at backstage at the backstage Autumn/Winter 2015 shows of Creatures of the Wind, Rag & Bone, Rodarte, Tanya Taylor, and Tome. In case you need to see the receipts.

Kohliner, Audacious Mascara’s partner in line, is creamy and concentrated for an easy application and it’s unique combination of polymers help extend wear and color payoff for a lasting look. How creamy is it? I actually used the liner to create the smokey eye look above! #sheCute

Anyways, the Audacious Mascara and Kohliner is available NOW! And clearly I think you should buy them!
