NARS Khao San Road Larger Than Life Eyeliner
NARS Khao San Road Larger Than Life Eyeliner

The NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner ($24.00 for 0.02 oz.) range has two new shades releasing for spring. Khao San Road is permanent, while Puerta del Sol is limited edition.  They’re both really fun, bright pops of color that are perfect for adding oomph to any look, but I wish they were a little creamier and more pigmented.  They are buildable to varying degrees (Puerta del Sol more so than Khao San Road), and they were both long-wearing and didn’t smudge at any point (but gradually faded/thinned after eight hours).

Khao San Road is described as a “metallic aquamarine.” It’s a brightened, light-medium blue with silver sparkle. It had so-so color payoff in a single stroke and was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage. The formula is just lightly creamy, so it doesn’t smudge easily and dries and sets very quickly. It lasted for eight hours without fading or smudging on me. Sephora Collection Summer Cruise (23) (P, $9.00) is lighter. Chanel True Blue (57) (LE, $30.00) is similar. bareMinerals 4AM (LE, $15.00) is less sparkly. Tarina Tarantino Kanzashi is brighter. See comparison swatches.

Puerta del Sol is described as a “parrot green with shimmer.” It’s a grassy green with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted sheen. It is an eyeliner that really has to be layered and built-up in order to achieve more opaque color payoff. It wore well for eight hours before starting to thin. Ardency Inn Grass (P, $19.00) is warmer with no shimmer. Sephora Collection Indulge Yourself (22) (P, $9.00) is less shimmery. NARS Rue de Rivoli (P, $24.00) is much darker (included here more because it’s in the permanent range). See comparison swatches.
