For some reason the 'doe' foot or sponge applicator that come with most lipglosses just never makes me as happy as a brush applicator. These day the majority of lines have switched to doe foot applicators to eliminate the occasional brush fraying & to cut costs. So I was thrilled to discover at The Make-Up Show, that Nars Cosmetics' newly launched Larger Than Life Lip Gloss collection had brushes! Rejoice! I feel brushes deliver more gloss & more precisely. From the top I scooped up (t)Born This way, (c)Spring Break & (b)Piree.
These glosses definitely deliver on the high impact shine that they promise. It has a substantial texture, but isn't very tacky or too thick. Its staying power also impressed me, we all know most glosses wear off in an instant. This sticks around for a while. My pick of my haul is definitely Piree. It's my lips, but oh so much better. Born This Way & Spring Break are rather pale, so the might wash people out. They offer a nice opacity to them. I'll use those shades in my professional kit in case I need to modify any lip looks I create. The collection includes 12 shades & I will definitely go back for some more. In fact I have my eye on 3 other shades- you know I'm an addict!
Peace. Love. Lipgloss. M
