Nars Warhol Holiday 2012

"Andy Warhol realized art could take any form. Putting on your makeup is a kind of self-portrait." - Francoi Nars

The newest collection from Nars featuring limited edition Andy Warhol glosses, shadows, polishes and more has this Factory Girl dancing in her boots! It's so exciting to have two of my favourite people come together and make some of my favourite things.

Exclusively at Sephora until November, this collection features three gorgeous eyeshadow palettes inspired by Warhol's "Flowers" screen prints. All of the palettes in this collection have Andy Warhol's signature in silver inscribed on the outer packaging, and a famous Warhol quote on the mirror inside. I dont know if I'll ever bring myself to use it... but I couldn't resist picking up Flowers 3... a gorgeous combination of taupes and bronzes for all skin tones and eye colours!

"I aways say, one's company, two's a crowd, and three's a party." - Andy Warhol

The exclusive collection also houses the Larger Than Life Lip Gloss Coffret, taking inspiration from the famous Warhol "Soup Can"! I had to pick up this one because of the incredible value and the keep sake canister! It comes with 5 perfect and brand new lip gloss shades, including the cult favourite "Chelsea Girls", the popular nude lip lacquer.

"I've never met a person I couldn't call a beauty." - Andy Warhol

Also available in this collection are 5 new Nail Lacquers, 5 new Larger Than Life Lipglosses, 4 new Soft Touch Shadow Pencils, a limited edition Larger Than Life Eyepencil, a soft peach highlighting blush, the Debby Harry Eye and Cheek Palette, and two gift sets. 

I'm a little dissapointed that the Warhol signature isn't on the lip gloss caps, or polishes or shadow pencils. It makes the products look as though they are just part of the regular line and not as special as they really are! I also find the Debby Harry Eye and Cheek Palette way too sparkly. To the point that even throughout the day it continues to fall all over your cheeks. For as excited as I was about this collection I definitely expected some things to be different. Either way... there are some key pieces definitely worth the splurge!

And keep your eyes pealed for the Holt Renfrew exclusive shadow palettes hitting stores in November with really unique prints from Warhol's "Self Portrait". 

"I believe in low lights, and trick mirrors." - Andy Warhol

I'll definitely be having a look at this amazing set called "Factory Girl" with a new pure matte lipstick (these are so long lasting!), a black liquid liner,  Deep Throat/Amour blush duo, and Edie shadow! All in a super cute keepsake film reel! This one's a no brainer!

"All is pretty." - Andy Warhol
