We hold our lipsticks to impossibly high standards. They need to be richly pigmented and creamy, long-lasting but not drying. A sleek tube we're not embarrassed to pull out in public is an added bonus, as is a fun and quirky name. There are very few lipsticks out there that check all the boxes, but in the Audacious lipstick collection by NARS Cosmetics, there are 40.

Spending today with Rita Audacious Lipstick.

Each lipstick in the collection is named after a special woman in the life of makeup artist and founder François Nars. Perhaps you'll recognize some of them: Charlotte, an oxblood red; Claudia, a cool pink; or Janet, a deep magenta. But the top-selling shades are Anita, Anna, and Barbara, a dusty rose, poppy-red, and pinky nude respectively. The lipsticks and their cool magnetic caps are quite literally flying off of shelves—more than 768 Audacious lipstick are sold every day. Emma Stone even wore the shade Mona to collect her Oscar at last year's Academy Awards.

We wanted to get to know the lipsticks a little better and more intimately, so we asked NARS Cosmetics if we could step inside their East Coast factory and get a look at how they're made. Watch below for a glimpse into the shiny, swirly, colorful process.
