There is something special about carrying around a NARS Larger Than Life Lipgloss. I am, perhaps, strange this way when it comes to my lip products and luxurious brands. Whenever I am carrying around a lip product that is fancy or really beautiful, it feels like a special day. Paris Follies is no exception to this rule, with gorgeous flamingo-pink color peeking through the packaging. This is the ideal color for spring and summer…that shade that turns ordinary into extraordinary and makes your whole face look brighter, tanner, and more glowing. If I had to put together the ultimate “glowing makeup” tutorial, I would include this exact gloss color in it. You don’t want to miss these swatches!

Paris Follies is described as a “flamingo pink” and I’d say that it’s a very accurate description. It is a ravishing coral-pink shade that flatters every single complexion. It’s one of those colors that glows within the packaging itself and makes you want to pick it up and look at it. Several times now I’ve taken this out of my purse and had family members “ooh” and “aah” over the shade. It’s one of those colors that is not only beautiful to look at, but is very flattering as a lip gloss.
The brush on this lip gloss is tiny. It’s probably the tiniest applicator wand on any lip gloss I own. At first I wasn’t liking it, but I think I misjudged because it puts down the perfect amount of color and allows for precise application around the curves of your lips, unlike those big, bulky applicators.
The gloss is non-sticky, pigmented, and has a wonderful sheen to it that lights up when applied. You’re going to hear me say this a million times in this post, but it really glows against your skin. It just adds that oomph to your makeup.
I love the way this looks on my lips, and quite frankly, it may be my new favorite lip gloss. Paris Follies makes me look tanner, healthier, and it makes my skin look like it is glowing. I can imagine that it will only get better as spring wears on and I get some color to my face. This is the shade that is born to be paired with bronzer.
Overall: NARS Larger Than Life Lipgloss in Paris Follies is a stunning flamingo-pink shade that will flatter absolutely anyone. Look forward to a gloss that looks beautiful in the packaging and on your lips, as well. The shade makes your skin look glowing and luminous. Basically, this shade is the most perfect color for spring and summer ever!
NARS Larger Than Life Lipgloss in Paris Follies will be available starting April 15th as part of the Summer 2013 Collection. You can find this at NARS counters nationwide, as well as online at NARS website. Each Larger Than Life Lipgloss retails for $26.00 USD.
