NARS Andy Warhol Holiday Collection

I am so giddy with excitement, it's finally here - the NARS Andy Warhol collection!



Pop art pioneer, filmmaker, and publisher, Andy Warhol was one of the most important visual artists of the 20th century. He joked “art is whatever you can get away with.” A painting, a movie, a TV commercial, an album cover, or an interview with a movie star. For Andy, art could be anything, but whatever he did, he did it as if it were fine art. He made paintings with a photo booth and ‘Screen Tests’ – movies that barely moved. He made an 8-hour movie starring the Empire State Building. He changed the way we see the world.

Andy Warhol’s world has been inspiring François Nars for years. Now NARS introduces a limited edition collection in the spirit of Andy Warhol. From the formulas and shades to the packaging and names, every element of the collection evokes François Nars’ take on the cool, image-rich, character-laden world of Warhol.

Everybody is a Superstar. At least for 15 minutes.

MAC Styleseeker, Mean & Green and Gadabout Girl Nail Lacquers Swatches, Review

I posted my swatches and review of the MAC Styleseeker collection items, with the exception of the nail lacquers. I also did a video review on the Styleseeker collection. Here is the nail lacquer installment of the MAC Styleseeker series. As I said in my video review, I like that some of the nail lacquers have duochrome or multichrome finish, which is a trend these days. Here are the swatches and my thoughts on all three lacquers.
