From his iconic pop art paintings to his legendary Silver Factory in New York, no artist is more embedded in our lexicon than Andy Warhol. To celebrate one of America’s most recognizable artists, NARS Cosmetics has released a limited edition collection inspired by Warhol’s famous works, unforgettable muses and infamous New York City studio.
“Warhol realized art could take any form,” Francois Nars states on the NARS Cosmetics website in his product insights for the collection. “Putting on your makeup is a kind of self-portrait.”
However, NARS Cosmetics doesn’t just utilize the colors of Warhol. Each product carries some sort of unique design element that makes the line a true collector’s piece for any cosmetics enthusiast.
Here are five stand out products from the Nars Cosmetics Andy Warhol Collection guaranteed to help you unleash your inner factory girl.
1. Self Portrait Eyeshadow Palette
An eyeshadow rendering of Warhol’s famous painting of himself, there is no greater tribute to this pop culture icon. With three color ranges, you’ll easily find the perfect palette for your style and skin tone. The only thing that could be better would be hanging the an original print of the portrait on your wall.
2. Photo Booth Nail Set
Okay, you might not be able to paint like Warhol, but you can proudly wear his famous colors on your nails. In addition to Back Room (black polish) which can be purchased alone, you’ll get three shades only available in this set- Soup Can (red), Chelsea Girls (beige), and Silver Factory (aluminum). It brings a whole new meaning to nail art.
3. Edie Set
When it comes to the muses of Andy Warhol, no one is more memorable or recognizable than Edie Sedgwick. Presented in a 16 mm film canister, this 1960s It Girl is represented through shades of pinks, peaches and creams as well as her signature black eyeliner. It’s no wonder why Edie remains the poster girl for 1960 style.
4. Larger Than Life Lip Glosses
Each named for one of Warhol’s muses, these vibrant lip glosses make an unforgettable statement. These long-lasting gems stay in place, and the dramatic high-impact finish is perfect for a night out on the town. No matter what shade you choose, you’re bound to end up somebody’s muse.
5. Silver Factory Set
If you were looking for a good time in New York City in Warhol’s day, the Silver Factory was the place to be. The mix of subtle pinks and edgy purple, black and silver invokes the allure, glamour and rebellion of the superstars and downtown divas who found fame through Warhol.
