Review: NARS Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in Place Vendome

I'm a big sucker for lip gloss.  Especially Nude/Pinky/Peachy Tones.  I've tried dark colors and they always make my lips look smaller (as if they weren't small enough already!).  I always wanted to flaunt a red lipstick/lipgloss, but it just doesn't work for me.  I was at Sephora last week returning something and this NARS Lipgloss caught my eye.  It was bright/fuscia red.  So I figured, why not try it on.  I try everything on at Sephora. :)  And it looked okay on me without minimizing my lips!  So I ended up loving it and bought it! And now I will show you this pretty lipgloss in action!

This lipgloss is a new type of lipgloss just released from NARS called Larger Than Life Lip Gloss.  I got it in color- Place Vendome ($26).  It's different from NARS regular lipgloss as it has much intense color with much more shine.  And this is true! 

Their product description reads:
Outrageously lustrous color meets serious shine in this NARS gloss. Its stay-in-place dramatic shade glides on smoothly and evenly for lips that are more luminous and voluminous than ever before. Long-lasting, high-shine hues are infused with ingredients that nourish and fight free radicals while natural lip enhancers pump up with volume. A new, shorter bristle brush delivers the most precise application possible. However you want to express yourself, Larger Than Life Lip Gloss says it boldly, brilliantly, and brazenly.

Please scroll down for my actual review (after the pictures).  Warning: Lots of lip pictures. ^_^

It has a tiny lip brush not a lip sponge.  I think it gives better precision around the lips since the color is so intense.

This is just one swatch on my lip.

Just that one swatch worked onto my lip.  At this point it just looks like a shiny lip tint.  It's pretty sheer.  I think it'd be pretty to just wear it like this.

I added another coat, and bam intense ultra shiny color with a bit of sheerness to it!

And the final look!

In conclusion, I am really liking this lipgloss.  Personally I can't wear it every day, but I have been wearing it a lot and it's been fun.  People really notice this lipgloss and I've been getting a lot of compliments. :)  And I'm glad I'm able to rock the darker/ vibrant lip color without wearing a lipstick or a lipliner and not minimizing my lip size.

-Ultra shiny but sheer at the same time.
-Makes your lips extra luscious
-Not sticky
-Great for ladies wanting to rock the red lips without being too much.
-No Fragrance/ or taste
-Lasting Power

-Price tag... bit hefty ... $26.... but I love it so much that I'd re-purchase.

Thinking about trying out some of their other colors out.  It comes in 9 other shades. :)
