Larger Than Life is marketed as a long-lasting lip gloss packed with color and shine. There are a lot of things I like about this product but there are some things I also am not a fan of.
True to its claim, it lasts longer than most lip glosses and the shine is strong without it being runny. It applies evenly, feels smooth and hydrating. Even if it contains shimmer, it doesn't feel gritty.
Although it did not feel sticky at the start, once it wore down and the color faded it also felt tacky. That was after two hours of wear.
The applicator brush is the smallest I've seen on a lip gloss. Good, when you want to make sure your application is neat but you'll have to dip in the tube twice to get enough product to coat your lips. A third time if you want the color to come out stronger.
Como has a berry base and fine gold shimmer - it looks dark on the tube and when swatched on the arm. On the lip, the color appears much lighter. From afar, the gold shimmer is barely noticeable. It's neutral with a punch.
The only thing that I find strange is that when the product thins out and starts to fade, my lips peel. It doesn't feel the least bit dry or raw. It just peels. Oh well, at least it exfoliates my lips ;)
