Review+Swatch - NARS Larger Than Life Lip Gloss
What it is: Outrageously lustrous color meets serious shine in this NARS gloss. Its stay-in-place dramatic shade glides on smoothly and evenly for lips that are more luminous and voluminous than ever before. Long-lasting, high-shine hues are infused with ingredients that nourish and fight free radicals while natural lip enhancers pump up with volume. A new, shorter bristle brush delivers the most precise application possible. However you want to express yourself, Larger Than Life Lip Gloss says it boldly, brilliantly, and brazenly.

It comes in 9 different colors and the formula itself contains a lot of good-for-lips ingredients, most of which I've never heard of like Hydracire (100% natural origin of plant waxes), Kalpariane (stimulates collagen and has anti-aging properties), Volulip (naturally occuring peptide) and some others.
Besides the formula, the brush itself rocks. The actual bristles are shorter than usual, which is great for application. I think we've all come across terrible brushes that make us want to toss it altogether, so this makes a big difference.
Here are the two I tried:
Place Vendome (strawberry pink) – a very diluted strawberry that’s nice for day since it’s not too strong.
Odalisque (pale apricot, they also describe it as cantalope) – this one is pretty sheer, almost too sheer. Definitely a YLBB and you like your lips shinier looking than a tinted lippie, this might be one for you to try.
