Andy Warhol famously said “art is what you can get away with”. Now, with NARS cosmetics limited edition make up collection you can get away with just about anything. The collection focuses on Warhol’s Factory era, a period when a host of celebrities and glamorous faces came to watch Warhol create film, art, and party the night away. Musicians and style icons David Bowie and Mick Jagger were regulars as well as fashionistas Grace Jones and Betsey Johnson. The excitement of the time is all captured in various sets and individual pieces.
Channel your inner “It Girl” with The Edie Set. Warhol’s self-proclaimed muse and “It Girl” of 1965 was Edie Sedgwick. Warhol claimed that no one else in the 60s fascinated him more than Sedgwick. Known for her charming personality just as much as her edgy style (a simple t-shirt and tights was her frequent ensemble), Sedgwick revitalized the Factory . The set includes peach eye shadow and blush, nude lipstick, and the ever important black eyeliner that Sedgwick was known for.
Get a taste of the rock star life with The Debbie Harry Eye and Cheek Palette. It includes bold colors of black, white, and purple that epitomizes Harry’s daring look. It also features tiny shimmery sparkles with micronized diamond power as a tribute to Warhol’s love of using diamond powder in his paintings. The Beautiful Darling Set is an homage to drag queen Candy Darling, another Factory regular and close friend of Warhol’s. The set includes bold colors like mint green eye shadow and hot pink nail polish and lipstick.
The individual eye palettes have both Warhol’s face imprinted and famous quotes from the man himself printed on the case. There are also eye shadow palettes with his famous Flowers painting printed. Other notable Warhol touches can be found in a metal soup can, that houses five nail polish colors including the eye catching yellow 15 Minutes of Fame, as tribute to Warhol’s famous Campbell soup can art.
Keeping in true Warhol spirit (he was a big fan of 15 minutes of fame), the collection is limited edition so grab it at Sephora while you can!
