I told you this was huge! This is the last of the Andy Warhol/NARS collaboration, and it includes more gift sets.  Take a look….

“You must always be yourself no matter what the price. It is the highest form of morality.” – Candy, muse of Andy Warhol

EVERYBODY IS A SUPERSTAR. AT LEAST FOR 15 MINUTES.

In a new makeup gifting collection for department and specialty stores, NARS captures the spirit of Warhol’s Silver Factory. The edgy energy of the Screen Tests, the intense color of the silkscreens, and the cool of Warhol’s superstars – underground icons and downtown divas who amazed audiences just by being themselves. For Andy the factory characters were like a full spectrum palette – personality as color.

EYESHADOW PALETTES

Palettes feature variations on Andy Warhol’s painting, Self Portrait, 1967. Chrome logo on compact and Andy Warhol quotes on mirrors.

 

  • SELF PORTRAIT 1 – Black, bright periwinkle blue, and vibrant green
  • SELF PORTRAIT 2 – Black, white, and silver
  • SELF PORTRAIT 3 – Dark brown with shimmer overspray, rose pink, and heather blue

Self Portrait Palettes Available exclusively at Department and Specialty stores, NARS Flagship Boutiques, and on narscosmetic.com

Available from November 1st, 2012.  Will retail for US$55

SILVER FACTORY GIFT SET

Andy listed his occupation as ‘Factory Owner.’ He called his silver-foiled studio ‘The Factory’ because for him art was work, and it took a team to make it. His ‘superstars’ surrounded him there, but he said he was hanging around them.

EDIE GIFT SET

Edie Sedgwick was the sixties It Girl, with the biggest eyes, the shortest skirt and longest legs. For Edie life was a non-stop performance. Edie and Andy were silver haired lookalikes. Andy said “she had more problems than anybody I ever met,” but she was his muse and if Andy were a girl he would have been Edie.

Presented in an authentic 16mm film canister, the gift set includes:

  • FILM STAR PURE MATTE LIPSTICK – 60s nude pink
  • EDIE EYESHADOW – Cream with a little bit of shimmer

BEAUTIFUL DARLING GIFT SET

Candy was the ultimate blonde bombshell. She was Andy’s greatest actress, even though she was a man. She said “You must always be yourself no matter what the price. It is the highest form of morality.” She thought beauty was a duty and worked harder at it than anyone.

Accompanied by a silver deluxe cosmetics bag, the gift set includes:

  • CANDY DARLING NAIL POLISH – Electric Pink
  • FEMME FATALE DUO EYESHADOW – Sheer white shimmer and fresh mint green

PHOTO BOOTH GIFT SET NAIL POLISH

Andy believed in a trademark look. His silver hair made him look ironically young. His shades added mystery. He looked like he had a secret, even if he didn’t. He was shy of strangers but he liked being famous. He said it gave him an aura.

The gift set includes:

  • BACK ROOM – Black
  • SOUP CAN – Perfect red
  • CHELSEA GIRLS – Innocent, flesh-toned beige
  • SILVER FACTORY – Aluminum

Available from November 1st, at narscosmetics.com.  Will retail for US$35
