Nars Larger Than Life Lip Glosses promise brilliant shine, intense colour, long wear as well as protection and moisture. Also there’s a promise not to feather…important when you get to my ripe old age 😉
I was sent the shade Born This Way and at first examination I thought there was no way I was going to be able to wear the colour.
Before talking about the wear and colour though, I just want to mention the brush.
It’s teeny weeny, very short and pointy which makes it perfect for precise application.
The shade itself is a pale milky pink and as I say, at first glance not a shade I would choose. Turns out I love it though!
The gloss itself feels thick and it feels like great quality and it’s true it stays put for hours. What it does do is lose the shine, but you know what, I love it when it’s been worn for a few hours. That’s when I think it looks best!
Trust me to take a photo when I’ve got my glasses on wonky, but just so you can see how it looks on.
In all the above pictures it is freshly applied and glossy, but as it wears throughout the day it forms a sort of satin version of the same colour and it looks great.
The Larger Than Life Lip Glosses are a quite steep £19 each but in terms of wear, for a lipgloss, these are really quite impressive. I’ve got my eye on a few more of the shades, Norma, Piree and 413 BLKR all look gorgeous.
