Bag It: NARS Larger than Life Volumizing Mascara

NARS Larger than Life Volumizing MascaraWay back in the mists of time I wrote one of my first posts for MM, and it was telling the world how crap I thought NARS’ old mascara was. (There was also something about Huey Lewis and the News in there, but Lord knows what that has to do with mascara, crap or otherwise).

However I am thrilled to report that after extensive testing, NARS new Larger than Life Volumizing mascara is proving itself to be a winner. The brush is a bit bigger than normal but not jumbo oversized like Diorshow mascara or Benefit’s Bad Girl Lash, and the main thing I like about it is that it doesn’t get goopy or overload the lash. Thus you can build a few coats with it still looking lovely and fluffy, and it really is quite volumizing.

One thing I would say is that sucker is staying on once it’s on! Make sure you have a good remover because it has the staying properties of a waterproof mazzie, without the crunchiness – which if you live in a hot climate or like a badass, long last mascara, this is for you.

In the mascara stakes Monsieur NARS, you have well and truly redeemed yourself.

  1. Hi MM, love the blog.
    I was really struck by the photograph on this post. Any product and application tips for that beautiful look above, especially such a flawless base? Would you do a blog post about it if you get the time?

    1. Thank you very much! It’s a beautiful photo, isn’t it? I had a look on the internet and couldn’t find an actual breakdown of this look from NARS. I could do a post on it but it won’t be until March as I’m organising a massive fashion for the end of this month, and blogging will probably be a bit sporadic!
