NARS Rue Bonaparte Larger Than Life Eyeliner


I've worn my Paula Dorf Baby Eyes Enhancer to a tiny stub, so it was time to pick a replacement. I decided on NARS because I like the Larger Than Life Eyeliner formula (I just realized that I have yet to review the pencils I have. I'll do it soon), and find it easy to wear and long-lasting, something that's very important for a brightening pencil you use on your inner rim (the waterline).

NARS Rue Bonaparte is paler and more... beige, I guess, than Paula Dorf's pencil. It's more obvious on the waterline but also brighter, which makes a difference when what you're aiming for is canceling the depressed rabbit look. It's a bit more stark when you first apply, but as the eyeliner settles onto the tissue it appears more natural. I'd say that if you're using an eye brightening to look more awake in a photo, Rue Bonaparte will give you a better result. If you're going out on a date and want to look very natural, Paula Dorf is a better choice. However, since NARS Larger Than Life is much longer lasting, I'd say go with it.

Bottom Line: an essential.

NARS Rue Bonaparte Larger Than Life Eyeliner ($24) is available at the counters, Sephora, and

  1. I have Via Appia and use it often. The liner glides on smoothly with the tugging or skipping of similar products. It stays on my eyelid without budging. This is an excellent product to pack when travelling--no need to take a liner brush. I will buy another colour this spring.
