|Trying out the NARS Audacious Mascara|
This month, NARS Cosmetics brings you to its first flagship store in KLCC with the introduction of its latest Audacious Mascara and Kohliner. Released for this Fall 2015, these two products has been solidified in the hearts of many and is rooted to bringing bigger and brighter eyes for all.

Hence upon arrival to the location, we were first in awe of the new NARS boutique. Located on the Concourse Floor (C26) of KLCC, this store was definitely the biggest out of the three in Klang Valley (Pavilion and Midvalley aside) that had clean crisp lines and beautifully classy interior.
Enchanting scents from their NARS gift candles were a mere delicate whiff away and scores of beloved NARS products were seen, lined up in vast arrays.
All about the Audacious Mascara
|The first look at the Audacious Mascara|
However the one in central focus was none other than the Audacious Mascara in Black Moon, that took center stage at NARS with its exclusive lash catching brush with 200 beautifully molded bristles and lengthening hooks.
One thing about this mascara is that layering here is not an issue as clumps do not appear on the scene, plus its amplifying factor is impressive as it reaches to both the inner and outer layer of the lashes smoothly with no issues.
|How To | Application|
However, even though the mascara is indeed very easy to coat and taking it out was simple enough, in terms of long-wear with no smudges, I am still a tad bit unsure. Now having it on for a good five hours did framed my eyes beautifully, nonetheless I did realize that after awhile, the tip of my lashes that had the mascara on did shift a little to the middle corners of my lids.
So in terms of this, it was smudge-proof; yes, but with regards to the formulation staining the lids (especially ones that are really close together ), yes that is a strong possibility.

However the formulation for the NARS Audacious Mascara is indeed an unique fluid one and while the intensity of color within is amazing, it also brings lightweight reapplication to the lashes without any hassle.
I should also mention that the application for this mascara goes in two ways; one applying on the lashes midway and stroking out (au natural) whilst the other is zigzagging it out from the root to the tip for more volume.

So if you do enjoy using this type of mascara for lengthening and voluminous purposes, this Audacious Mascara is a great one to add into your stack. It is valued at RM110 per piece so if you would like to take a closer look and make a purchase, you can do so at all NARS boutiques around the Klang Area at Pavilion, Midvalley and KLCC.

Now in terms of the Kohliner, I would prefer to go on about in on a more hands on way, so do look out for a more in-depth review once I have fully tried it out. Nonetheless I will say that if you enjoy intense and creamy matte consistencies, then this would be the one liner that you will definitely enjoy using.
Priced at RM96, its blending abilities are amazing and for its precision for creating smokey eye looks are spot on. Maybe a tutorial on how to use it should be in order but do let me know if you would like to see that on your end.
