Bubbling Up: NARS goes pop with Andy Warhol CollectionPosted by Madeleine York on August 29, 2012 under Beauty,Bubbling Up (Beauty)
Beauty buffs, it’s time to bring that hidden creativity out. NARS Cosmetics has finally revealed the much-awaited Andy Warhol Collection that will surely make a noise this fall season.
The brand’s founder and creative director François Nars shared he paid tribute to the late Andy Warhol in his past collections with the Edie Eyeshadow and Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer. Now he continues to honor the art legend by bringing Warhol back to life in his latest makeup set.
“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,” the makeup artist said.
Vibrant and bold colors fill the set – take a look at the Debbie Harry palette as well as in the soup-can container of the Kiss Mini Larger Than Life Lip Gloss Coffret. An Andy Warhol quote is also inscribed on the mirrors of the compacts for an inspiring approach.
The Andy Warhol Collection will be exclusively launched at Sephora on October 1 and another debut is scheduled for department and specialty stores on November 1.
