Nars Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara Review

You may have noticed that I have been using a new mascara in my recent face of the days...the Nars Larger than Life Volumizing Mascara:

I have been using mine quite a bit so the packaging has taken a beating, but the mascara itself is pretty good. I like wands that are full and have lots of bristles to coat each lash, and this one fits the bill:

I know this mascara is pricey ($25) but it works pretty well. See for yourself:

Bare lashes

Lashes with one coat of Larger than Life Volumizing Mascara

This mascara does not smudge or flake on me, and it doesn't clump up like a lot of volumizing mascaras do. It lasts all day and holds the curl very well. I'm not sure if it really thickened or lengthened my lashes, but it does what I want a mascara to do: darkens my lashes while holding the curl. Overall I give this a two thumbs up but I don't know if I would repurchase because there are so many mascaras that I want to try and many of them are cheaper than this one. 

What mascara are you using currently?


  1. This looks awesome! That type of brush is my favorite. Your lashes are quite long!


  2. I wish I had the money for this! I always buy inexpensive mascaras because I toss them after 4 months anyway. I'm using Physician's Formula 100% Natural Origin mascara right now. I wish it didn't smudge so horribly. I love natural products and this would have been my HG mascara if it weren't for the smudging.

    As a freelance MUA, do you get the NARS discount?

  3. wow.. nice blog.. following u now..


  4. @Cynthia Thanks dear!

    @Chris This mascara is great! If you are interested in getting it, a good time might be during the Sephora Friends and Family sale that comes around every October.

    @Rekha Thanks hun!

  5. I have been using MAC Plushlash. Another one of my favorites is the Covergirl Volumizing in the Purple tube.

  6. Hi there! I have NARS Larger Than Life mascara and of the more-than-20 other mascaras from different brands I've used, this one is hands-down the best! I'm happy to know that this mascara can be used up to 24 months (check out the bottom label)so it's totally worth-the-buy. It's the one mascara that totally thickens my lashes and I've noticed that my lashes have lengthened these days as well since I've used it. I was going to repurchase MAC Opulash mascara cuz I loved it but NARS just totally blown me away. For the price and the shelf life of 24 months, it's totally a good deal.
