I had the privilege to preview the NARS x Andy Warhol collection recently. The date is looming near – NARS will open officially in Singapore on 15th November at Tangs Orchard Beauty Hall, and this special collection will be available, together with the other NARS regular makeup items.

There is a dazzling array of 29 items in this collection and it is simply too hard not to fall in love.

But, the Self Portrait Limited Edition Eye Shadow Palettes would probably make the best memento for this special collaboration. I am trying to justify to myself that it is alright to spend money on eyeshadows that I would never bear to use.

Featuring Andy Warhol’s Self Portrait (created in 1967), each palette has a quote by the protagonist imprinted on the mirror.

“I believe in low lights and trick mirrors” ~ Andy Warhol

“Art is what you can get away with.” ~ Andy Warhol

“I’ve never met a person I couldn’t call a beauty.” ~ Andy Warhol

I am not even sure which palette to purchase, and on what basis. Should I choose according to the colour combination – in this case I think the first one with black, bright periwinkle blue and vibrant green will stand out. But I don’t think I will ever have the heart to “destroy” the palette by using it.

Perhaps the one with the most meaningful quote. I am smitten by the last one. “I’ve never met a person I couldn’t call a beauty.” How apt.

I do not have the prices in SGD for these palettes, but judging from the tags in US (US$55) and UK (GBP39.50), my guess is it will be in the range of S$70-80.

In addition, the collection also showcases special gift sets with silver cosmetic bags or cases printed with Warhol’s works, as well as special colours for the lip glosses, nail polishes and soft touch shadow pencils. Check out my Facebook album for photos taken at the preview.

Andy said, “Beauty really has to do with the way a person carries it off.”  How will you create that beauty today?

上周有机会预览NARS与已故现代视觉艺术家Andy Warhol的限量彩妆系列。29样产品,每样都赋有艺术家的特色,产品名字灵感来自Andy Warhol历届艺术品。 当中最吸引我的是印有Andy Warhol1967年“自画像”眼影盘。3种不同颜色,每个眼影盘的镜子刻上大师的经典名句,意义非凡,应该是这系列当中最好的纪念品,令人不舍得使用。

NARS在本岛国的第一家专卖店将于11月15日在乌节路Tangs开张。除了NARS的经典产品,Andy Warhol的限量彩妆系列也将在当天开始发售。
