NARS Mascara Review - Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara & Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara


NARS Mascara


Olla everyone, today I would like to share with you about 2 mascara by NARS. Yes.. NARS!! I dont know about you but I automatically have this rush of excitement when ever it comes to NARS. Great thanks to many beauty gurus and junkie all over the net that been raving about NARS. Last time, NARS is one of those brand that I can only hear or know about but quite challenging to have my hands on it, because they do not have a flagship in Malaysia. Days by days, time goes by all I can do it just dream that one day NARS will come to Malaysia. 

Okay, I got it. Some said why dont you just buy online? The thing NARS is like a blind date to me. I dont mind buying other brands online from overseas market if I have physically encountered with it before. For make up, I need to hold it in my hands, test it swatch it then only buy it. Lets be frank, their price range is considered premium to my wallet, so for that I need to make sure on my decisions on what I am going to splurge on. Which is why the day when they announced that NARS is finally come to Malaysia, I am like.. “is this for real?”  so happy!

Many have been raving about their blusher “orgasm”. Well today, I am going to share with you about their mascaras instead. First is the Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara the other one is the  Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara. You may use each separately or combine it for greater effect.



Before we go into it further, lets check out their brushes closely. Both mascara have a straight wands. The shape of straight mascara wands means they’re super easy to use, and very versatile.You can tilt them and use them at an angle to get coverage over every single lash, even very small ones or those located in the corner of your eyes. Straight wands are great for people with big eyes or lots of eyelashes, but those with smaller eyes might want to find a wand that offers more accuracy. Straight wands with big, thick bristles are great for adding volume and curl too – the fatter the brush, the further round each lash has to curl. Straight wands give natural-looking volume and length, and are the perfect option for daily wear.

Do you know that many beauty company has a wide range of different mascaras? Each claiming that their formula contains unique ingredients for thickening and lengthening our eyelashes. In my opinion honestly, a good portion of the effect mascara has on our eyes comes down to the wand, or brush.

Mascara wands and brushes are equally as important as the formula itself, and since different shaped and sized wands serve different and specific purposes, it’s really important to choose the right one for your eyelashes and needs. As you can see above, the lengthening mascara have a rubber bristled brush shape while the volumizing have a thick honeycomb brush. Maybe I’ll share more about type of brushes and wands in the market next time, as today we going to focus more on these two mascaras instead.



Both products were made is USA contained 6g and currently retailing at RM95 each. 




I found out that both mascara enriched with Vitamin E and Macadamia Nut Oil. Many of you have known that macadamia oil is highly nutritious, which contains great sources of calcium, vitamin B complex, vitamin E, proteins, phosphorus and iron and contains 80% mono saturated fat.

By infusing macadamia nut oil in to mascaras, it helps protect the lashes. The high absorption and deep penetration of the lashes means it will obtained a  proper moisture they need to stay healthy. The vitamin E contained in the macadamia oil helps lashes to soften and rejuvenate. The proteins help to strengthen and promote healthy lashes. 




As for my personal experience, honestly as a beauty blogger I tried tons and tons of mascara both high end and the drugstore brands.So my take? I like the fact that NARS holds what it claimed. The lengthening mascara does give a lengthening effect and the volumizing mascara do make my lashes look dramatic with just 1 coat. Some other brands which claim the same effect, need me to apply at least 2 coats to achieve the look.

I like the formula, as I found it dry quite fast and the brush does not make my lashes clump. Which is very important to me. I dont like clumped lashes at all.Okay who does anyway right? haha.. I like when both mascara were combined. I used the lengthening first then add up with volumizing. You can see the combination result as per below picture. It makes me look like I am wearing fake lashes. The thing is it is way more comfortable than wearing fake lashes and you dont have to worry that your fake lashes will fall or something like that.




Try it for yourself and have fun! *wink wink*
