NARS Las Ramblas Larger Than Life Eyeliner
NARS Las Ramblas Larger Than Life Eyeliner

NARS Las Ramblas Larger Than Life Eyeliner ($24.00 for 0.02 oz.) is described as a “yellow gold.” It’s a warm, yellow gold with a pearly sheen. It had so-so color payoff in a single stroke and was buildable to semi-opaque color coverage on the lash line, though it wasn’t totally even so it does need to be smudged and blended a bit after applied to get the best results. The consistency could have been somewhat creamier/easier to glide on. It wore well for seven hours but has noticeably thinned out after eight hours. Chanel Vegas Gold is darker, more orange. Make Up For Ever #9L is slightly less yellow. See comparison swatches.

Via de Martelli Larger Than Life Eyeliner ($24.00 for 0.02 oz.) is described as a “chocolate.” It’s a warm-toned, medium-dark chocolate brown with red undertones and a very subtle pearl. It was semi-opaque in a single pass but was buildable to full opacity with a few passes. It was creamier than Las Ramblas, so it was easier to apply. This shade lasted for eight hours well and only started to look somewhat thinner after nine hours. Urban Decay Bourbon is darker, browner. MAC Brown Border is darker. MAC Fluidline is warmer, more copper. See comparison swatches.

  1. Ah man, I was hoping that the gold liner would be better. I’d love an opaque gold liner because that’s one of my school’s colors and would love to rock it at football games.

  2. I have never had good luck with the NARS eyeliners. But Via de Martelli is quite nice.

  3. I quite like red browns against my khaki eyes and Via Martelli looks quite decent.. Maybe not the pigmented and smoothest pencil I’ve seen, but I really like that it is matte looking. I have UD Bourbon, but it has far more shimmer.

  4. Ah Via de Martelli is quite unique to me, I don’t think I have anything quite like it. I love brown liners for slightly softer definition

    How does Via de Martelli compare to UD Whiskey? I love red browns, but I have way too many pencils already, and am looking for an excuse not to buy another, LOL.
