Big news for NARS fans! Earlier this year, NARS announced the collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation to release a holiday makeup line and now we have a first look of the two-part Warhol-inspired line. According to WWD, Sephora will launch an exclusive selection of pieces inspired by Warhol’s pop art work starting October 1st. Highlights include The Debbie Harry eye and cheek palette ($65) and a lip gloss set packed in a soup container ($55).
Another range will hit all major department stores and specialty stores starting November 1st. This range is inspired by Warhol’s films Silver Factory. The Silver Factory set ($200) has a more sleeker aesthetic featuring new eyeshadow shades, a Chelsea girls matte lipstick, a new Multiple shade, Desire blush, eyeliner, and brushes. The department store version also includes the Edie set ($75), and the Beautiful Darling set- a makeup bag ($49). Both lines will come as a 16-piece color set which includes 5 nail polishes, 5 new lip glosses, highlight brush, eyeliner, and pencils.
Here’s what Francois Nars had to say about Warhol’s legacy:
“I have always surrounded myself with Andy’s work and even paid tribute to him in my past collections—Edie Eyeshadow, Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer, etcetera.”
“This just seemed like the right time to do [a bigger effort]. Even more than 20 years after his death, Andy continues to be one of the most influential figures in both contemporary art and pop culture. Andy said, ‘If everybody’s not a beauty, then nobody is.’ This is the same sentiment I wanted to bring to life with Nars—a forward-thinking attitude toward beauty, and the encouragement to inspire self-expression, creativity, and artistry in the women who wear it. It seemed like a natural fit to create a collection that Andy himself might have a hand in if he were alive today.”
Beauty fanatics and NARS fans will surely be racing to the beauty counters this holiday season.
