Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Infamous is rosier/warmer compared to the NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anna.
MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge in C211 is rosier compared to NARS Anna.
Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Touch of Spice rosier/warmer compared to NARS Anna. & Lust for Blush is lighter and cooler compared to NARS Anna.

If you mix Touch of Spice with Lust for Blush you actually get a colour very similar to NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anna.

Wet 'n' Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 915B Spiked With Rum is darker and cooler than the NARS Audacious Lipstick in Jane. This one is hard to dupe for me because I don't gravitate towards orange lipsticks.

Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color Lipstick in 904B Rose Bud is cooler and less orange NARS Audacious Lipstick in Juliette. Again this shade is very hard for me to dupe.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge in C206 is slightly cooler compare to NARS Audacious Lipstick in Brigitte.
Colourpop Lippie Stix in Button is lighter compare to NARS Brigitte.
Maybelline Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes in Honey Pink is lighter cooler compare to NARS Brigitte.

In term of a formula dupe, I found that the Maybelline Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes & Color Sensational Creamy Matte have a very similar formula in terms of the look on the lips and texture. But the difference is that the NARS formula fell softer on the lip and look creamy on the lips longer. How they apply also there is a difference, I found the NARS lightly melts while applying so that a feel creamy compare to the stiffer Maybelline. 

Verdict
I actually do like this formula a lot. It definitely my favourite high-end cream finish formula so it took me a few year to get these four shades due to their price point. NARS doesn't do pale shade either so the shade that I'm interested in are limited.

Do you need expensive lipstick, no but If you see a shade you think you would get a lot of wear out of it, I recommend checking the shades out in a Sephora store. Out of these four, Brigitte is an every shade for me.
