NARS 413 BLKR Larger Than Life Lip Gloss Review, Swatches and Photos

March 15, 2012

During a quick trip to NYC, I finally paid homage to my favorite makeup brand and stopped by the world’s one-and-only NARS Boutique. The cute little store is located in Manhattan’s West Village on 413 Bleecker Street, just a minute away from the famed apartment of Sex And The City’s Carrie Bradshaw. As a souvenir, I left with the exclusive 413 BLKR Larger Than Life Lip Gloss.

Just like the NARS x Lady Gaga Born This Way Larger Than Life Lip Gloss, 413 BLKR comes in a non-sticky, semi-moisturizing formula with great pigmentation and excellent wearing power. The color is a gorgeous bright red that can instantly polish up any look. I love pairing it with a clean face and winged eyeliner and I always get SO many compliments wearing it.

I also thought the applicator was better than the Gaga gloss. The bristles were much softer right off the bat and simply great for application. All I do is swipe it over my lips once, add a bit of MAC Cherry Lip Pencil here and there and bam! Hot red lips with lots of shine!

    Nice red! I haven’t purchased Nars lip glosses in a while because they are too sticky. I might check this out.

    Very nice!!! I also found it very helpful to have pictures of the look so that we can see how the color incorporate with everything else on the face
