NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliners

NARS have recently launched a new line of super-long-wear eyeliner pencils, there are nine shades including:
– Santa Monica Blvd – pure white
– Rue Bonaparte – beige (perfect for the waterline to look a bit more awake)
– Abbey Road – a gorgeous shimmering turquoise
– Rue Saint-Honore – a deep blue, with shimmer
– Via Appla – shimmering brown
– Madison Ave – grey
– Via Veneto – black
– Bourbon Street – shimmering purple
– Rue de Rivoli – simmering green

These babies really don’t budge once applied, I swatched all of them on the back of my hand and it took some serious rubbing with a babywipe to get them to shift. I have the shade ‘Madison Ave*’ to try out properly too – will give it a go on the waterline and see how it survives!

L-R: Rue Saint Honore, Madison Ave, Abbey Road, Bourbon Street, 
Rue Bonaparte, Santa Monica Blvd, Rue de Rivoli, Via Veneto, Via Appla

I was really torn about which shade to choose, partly on colour (I was torn between the dark blue, grey and the nude – all more unusual colours that I don’t already have something similar to) but I was also torn because I wanted the Bourbon Street one, simply because of the name. I love New Orleans and automatically want to choose anything associated with it! But in the end I chose the ‘Madison Ave*’grey, because I wanted to be sensible and go for the one I’d get the most wear out of.

What do you think of the new shades, which is your pick??

NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliners are available from ASOS now (£17)
