Beauty Find - NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner, Barrow Street


What a fun shade, isn't it?

But is it wearable?

Well, I think it's quite a versatile shade, especially if you're looking to lighten up your eye look for summer, or just add a bit of color to a normally neutral makeup look.

Like all of the NARS Larger Than Life eyeliners, it has a retractable pencil and a built in sharpener. The texture of the pencil in and of itself is a dream - rich, super pigmented and creamy. The pencil has but to barely touch the skin and the color glides on smoothly with no pulling or flaking.

Barrow Street is a cool, pale sea foam green has a matte finish. Even if you have some other blue/teal or aqua eyeliners, as I do, this is a really unique take on a light blue shade. The wear time for the pencil was also quite impressive, lasting well over a 10 hour day after applying in the morning for me (they are marketed as 12 hours pencils after all!).

A few ways I liked to wear this shade were to apply a thin line of black or deep green eyeliner first on my upper lash line, and then add the swipe of the Barrow street above it. This looks really good as a Cat Eye effect as well. I also liked this in the inner and lower water line with just lots of mascara for a brightening effect with a low key makeup look. 

Since it's so creamy and blendable, you can also try blending a thicker layer out on the lid with a firm shadow brush and using as a colorful pastel eye shadow, which would look great especially with lighter brown, hazel or green eyes. - RLB
