Exciting! A new mascara from Nars! You know what? I don’t think I have ever even tried a mascara from Nars before so even more reason to get excited! Here’s a look at the new Nars Audacious Mascara launching this Autumn 2015. I have some before and after pics for you too.

I absolutely love the packaging on this mascara. It has that gorgeous matte black Nars finish and the lid has a stand-out orange-red top. It’s lovely! It feels really nice in the hand too. Nars are telling us to Grip. Glide. Repeat.

As always, I got this straight on the lashes without reading about it so I could allow my true first impressions to arise. And wow does this pack some pigments right from the very first and lightest touch. You can coat the lashes so quickly with this and it delivers instant impact with minimal effort.

Sorry about the stunned expression!

The brush is great at grabbing the lashes and then effortless gliding from root to tip to stretch out the formula over them. The lashes are instantly volumised and lengthed. Also I love the lash separation this brush gives. I feel like it separates by also subtly groups the lashes for even more impact.

It feels really light on the lashes, in spite of how much volume it gives them, and it is really easy to add more layers if you want to top up during the day. Most of all I love how black it is.  It will definitely get your lashes noticed!

Nars Audacious Mascara is £20 and launches on 1st September 2015 in Space NK and goes nationwide from October 1st.
