Khao San Road, the metallic aquamarine eyeliner pencil from NARS Spring 2014 color collection might not have quite the same universal appeal as the Multiple I just showed you, but I adore it. Nothing says warm weather more than tropical colors, and I'm lucky to be able to pull it off (within reason). I wasn't sold on the metallic finish of Khao San Road at first, but as is often the case with metallic pencils, they're not quite as flashy when you simply use them to line your eyes.
NARS Larger Than Life is one of my favorite formulas for eye pencils. It applies smoothly (not quite as soft as Pixi or Urban Decay but close enough), and has an industrial staying power. I've found that Khao San Road is a bit more susceptible to smudging than many of the pencils in this range, which isn't actually as bad a thing as you'd think if you use it to create a smoky effect, especially on the lower lashes. But do take into account that this is not as cement-like as you might expect.
NARS Khao San Road Larger Than Life ($24) will be available at NARS boutiques and on narscosmetics.com starting tomorrow (January 15th). The product for this review was sent for my consideration by PR.
