Road Test: Nars Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte

For 2 years now, I’ve been looking for a flesh-toned eyeliner for the water line. I looked for a cheaper alternative but couldn’t find any so I took the plunge.

This is quite expensive. It’s Php 1,200+ at Rustans ($23/ Php 950+ on the website). But I won a Php 500 coupon from House of Flair, now her we are.

Here it is on the waterline of my right eye:

Here’s a swatch on my wrist:

Road Test: Nars Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte


  • It did a great job cancelling out the pink
  • Made my eye look bigger, brighter and less tired; and,
  • It wasn’t as stark as a white eyeliner would look.

It lasted around 5 to 6 hours (fading started by the 4th hour).

I think it’s a good product. But I haven’t used it enough to tell if I like it that much to buy again considering how expensive it is without a coupon.

EDIT: Haven’t been using this, I think I’m allergic.

  1. I love Scatterbraintures' new look! :)

    Re: Shiseido sun protect liq foundie shades — you might want to ask for SP40 and 50. SP50 has a hint of pink in it when compared to SP40 (na medyo orange-y naman when i swatched it). Darkest shades are SP60 and 70.

  2. I used to have Stila's Kajal liner in Topaz which is a few pesos cheaper than this and looks nice on the waterline. Rue Bonaparte is flesh-er though. Topaz has a hint of pink in it, although subtly, and looks most natural on those with super fair skin.

What do you think?
