NARS Paris Follies Large Than Life Lipgloss
NARS Paris Follies Large Than Life Lipgloss

NARS Paris Follies Large Than Life Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink flamingo.” It’s a bright, creamy coral-red. Guerlain Candy Stripe is more orange and has slight shimmer. MAC Forever Rose is pinker. Revlon Papaya is slightly pinker and has shimmer. Hourglass Nectar is very close in color. MAC Viva Glam Cyndi/a> is lighter, less pink. MAC Exxxhibitionist is lighter. Illamasqua Mistress is more orange.

The Larger Than Life formula is supposed to have “high shine” with “intense color” and be both “long-lasting” and “nourish[ing].” The color is nearly opaque, and what’s really incredible is how it doesn’t settle into lip lines at all–it really just smooths over the entire lip and makes lips look very juicy and glossy. It has a thinner consistency that wasn’t tacky, and it was comfortable to wear for the five hours it lasted on my lips. Paris Follies was moderately hydrating while I wore it.  The only thing I don’t like about NARS’ gloss here is the teeny, tiny applicator–I need five or six pulls just to get enough product to cover my lips. I find that I always end up feeling the edge of the plastic portion of the applicator scraping against my lips, because the brush is so stubby.

I love how creamy, smooth, and glossy the color looks on the lips--it is really quite lovely! I only wish the applicator was easier to use.

  1. The nicest item out of the collection so far!

    Looks gorgeous on you! I too hate the applicators – I have Larger than Life in Place Vendome, and love it, but every time I use it (which is not often because of the applicator), I wonder whether I can swap in another cap/applicator…

    This is gorgeous! By chance is it similar to the Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate? It reminds me of the color!

    The lipgloss is very pretty , but what caught my eye was your cheeks , what are you wearing ? Looks so glowy, really beautiful Christine !

    I really like this shade. I don’t get why Nars think an applicator like that is practical, though. I have full lips and I just know that I’d get bored applying this lipgloss because it would take so long!

  6. Lovely color! I agree, I have the NARS larger than life lip gloss in “Como” and the applicator feels like a toot pick!

    Do you think this would be too bright for a 14 year old girl?

  8. eileenie

    wow it does look incredible on the lips!

    Pretty! How does it compare to MAC Star Quality- lighter maybe?

    Gorgeous colour! I’m getting this!

    I love this!!

  12. rachel

    I tried Nars lipgloss and they stay on for about one hour

    This really does make your lips look super juicy! I might need this :)

  14. Sabrina

    OMG, i must have this! I haven’t actually got any NARS lipglosses yet because i’ve always been a bit wary of their lip products but this may be a good start:)

    I love this, but not enough to put up with the applicator. I suppose if I got disposable lip gloss applicators it’d be worth using, but I don’t know if I’m that devoted.

  16. Gah. This looks absolutely divine — “juicy,” indeed! I love that this has an almost-opaque finish, but still feels light, visually. :)

  17. Jaz

    I hate these applicators( I like a brush applicator , just hate this one). I think it would take too long to put this gloss on unless you have thin lips, which I dont. Lovely color for you though

  18. VickyM

    Very pretty gloss, I love the color :D , however I´m reallyjust waiting for the new Chanel glossimers, so not buying any other type of gloss at all.

    can you feel this “plumping” your lips?
