NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Campo de’ Fiori and St. Marks Place

NARS Holiday 2011: Campo de’ Fiori & St. Marks Place

For the holidays, there are two new shades of NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.02 oz.), which are Campo de’ Fiori (antique brass) and St. Marks Place (bright violet). I reviewed this formula here originally.

  • Campo de’ Fiori is a brassy gold with a metallic shimmer and sheen. It’s mostly opaque in one pass, but it was drier than I expected. The consistency was not as creamy as previous iterations have been in this formula–there was a fair amount of tugging and pulling when I applied this on my lower lash line. It’s less golden and brassier than Urban Decay Honey. It’s more comparable to Stila Koi. (See gold eyeliner comparisons.)
  • St. Marks Place is a vibrant violet purple with semi-opaque color in a single pass. It’s creamier than Campo de’ Fiorio, but there is still a little pulling on the lash line that I wasn’t expecting. It’s closer to NARS Manon, but it’s not as blue-based as a lot of violet eyeliners.

On the upside, the drier consistenty helped these wear better; I had no problems at the eight hour mark when I used both of these shades on the lower lash line. There was no budging, smudging, or fading during that period. After twelve hours, both looked thinner and less vibrant than when they were originally applied. I didn’t apply these to my lower waterline, because the general dryness of the formula would have made it painful and difficult to achieve even, opaque color (and I’m not sure if these are safe for waterline usage). These are smaller than traditional pencil eyeliners but larger than the typical mechnical or twist-up pencil.

B-
If they were creamier, they would be easier to apply and more comfortable to apply. The wear is good, and despite the dryness in formula, they still deposit a fair amount of color in a single pass.

  1. I’ve got my eye on both of these, they’re really pretty. I’ll definitely swatch them in store first though since you mention they are on the drier side.

    I’m very amused that NARS named it after St. Marks Place. The color is certainly appropriate!

  3. They look just okay to me. For some reason NARS never lives up to my expectations!

    Don’t mind a drier texture, campo de fiori will be mine!

  5. Alison

    I was waiting for your review on these! Thank you! I’ll definitely pick up the purple one.

  6. I’m loving St. Mark’s Place for the bold and vibrant color, but I think both would go well together in a look. I do like it a little dry too to reduce the possibility of smudging. Thanks for the review!

  7. I loved the golden one more!! :)

  8. St. Marks Place looks really beautiful. But, it contains so little product :/
