NARS Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in 413 Bleecker Review and Swatches

413 Bleecker Street is the address of NARS' flagship storefront in downtown New York City. To celebrate its opening last year, NARS released a trio of downtown NYC-inspired products, including Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in 413 Bleecker.

NARS Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in 413 Bleecker ($26) is a bright, rich candy apple red. The super shiny formula is somewhat thick, so it fills in lip lines for an extra voluptuous look.

NARS Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in 413 Bleecker (or 413 BLKR) has some pink in it, though it pulls toward an orange red when you apply more layers.

I am very happy with the texture, color, and finish of NARS Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in 413 Bleecker. My only problem is the applicator.

The brush is so teeny tiny! It felt odd to use such a small applicator and it was hard not to make mistakes along the lip line. 

I would give this gloss my highest recommendation if the applicator was different. Your applicator preferences may vary, so just keep that in mind if you're considering a purchase.

  1. That is so pretty! I love the shade and it's a really deep red. That brand doesn't disappoint though :)

    1. Yay, I'm glad you like it too. I bet it would look great with your coloring!

      NARS is so consistently impressive. If only it wasn't so consistently expensive too :P
