NARS x Andy Warhol

(I apologise in advance for the ghastly fingerprints all over the packaging. Don't judge me!)

'Tis the season to be jolly because it is time for Christmas Beauty Gift Sets!! Makeup brands often come out with their most resplendent and breathtaking collections during this time of year that empties our wallets, leaving nothing behind but perhaps a measly five cent coin. One brand that caught me off guard was NARS and their Andy Warhol Collection.  Francois Nars tastefully transforms Warhol's iconic works of arts into makeup items and gift sets that marks their spot on top of every makeup fanatic's wishlist. 


The sets that I was fortunately able to pick up were the Edie Gift Set and the Photobooth Gift Set
This set contains:
  • Deep Throat/Armour Blush Duo
  • Edie Eyeshadow
  • Film Star Pure Matte Lipstick
  • Carpates Eyeliner Stylo

When I saw that Edie Sedgwick was featured on a giftset, it was an immediate must have. The set comes with items that I would comfortably use so I thought it would be worth my money. After a few swatches, I can already feel some new products that have joined my beauty favourites list!
Left to Right: Blush in Deep Throat, Blush in Armour, Eyeshadow in Edie, Pure Matte Lipstick in Filmstar, Eyeliner Stylo in Carpates
"Warhol painted flowers, soap, money, movie stars. He painted Marilyn, Liz, Jackie and a soup can. He made paintings with a photo booth and 'Screen Tests' - movies that barely moved. He changed the way we see the world." - Francois Nars

This set contains:
  • Back Room nail polish
  • Silver Factory nail polish
  • Soup Can nail polish
  • Chelsea Girls nail polish
I haven't tested these nail varnishes out yet as I am thinking of gifting it to someone but the shades are easily wearable and the names are simply adorable. I have never tried out a NARS nail polish (or any other product for that matter) before so I can't wait to see it's colour payoff and longevity on the nails! 

I hope you didn't mind this half rambly haul/first impressions but I am a huge fan of NARS and Andy Warhol so I kind of fell in love with this collection. Happy Holidays everyone if I don't post before Christmas (if we all die from the apocalypse (knock on wood) :D).
