Every so often, the worlds of art, fashion, and culture pause to have an Andy moment. This time, Francois NARS has sounded the bell with a Warhol-inspired makeup line that captures the stardust of an era in a compact. With a palette as motley and as cheeky as Warhol's tastes and iconic lithographs, NARS celebrates the factory girl, the artistic deviant, and other ghosts of a New York past that deserve tribute thanks to Mr. Warhol's vision. In true Andy moment fashion, we look back to where the pop art magic began, collecting a little stardust of our own.
Inspired by the Silver Factory and its rebellious, subversive, and utterly glamorous family, François Nars has created a makeup collection of pop pink "Desire" blush; black eyeliner; nude lipstick; aluminum highlighter; bright purple, silver, and matte black eye shadow; and a blush brush and domed eyeshadow brush to apply it all. The physical Factory might no longer exist, but its New York Superstar legacy still does.
