NARS Andy Warhol Holiday 2012 Collection Swatches and Review

From the labs of Fruity Lashes, we just finished testing 3 brand spanking new color intense products that will have you wowing off your seats. They not only look cool in color, they represent a very different holiday look. The look that doesn’t make you think Oh No boring! By boring I mean the traditional colors of red and green. You know, the Xmas Tree or even Rudolph’s nose? Don’t get me wrong though, I love Rudolph, that little reindeer is extra special.

But anyways, make way for NARS Andy Warhol Collection. I will be featuring the 2 shadow pencils and 1 lip gloss.

Nars Holiday 2012 Andy Warhol Collection

Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Silver Factory and Trash? What makes these 2 so special? Aside from the names sounding so twisted… We’ve seen similar ones in the past with or without caps (just for the record, they do come with them). They have the NARS packaging feel, they have color on the outside to signify what they look like. So?

The colors on these pencil, are wickedly awesome. Trash is seen as a Vivid Purple in color and Silver Factory as Aluminum. But what I see is a cosmic purple like color and a shiny space outfit. Almost very space orientated and like. It’s like an astronaut in outer space.

The other product we have form the collection is the Larger Than Life Lip Gloss Candy Says. A shimmering strawberry pink color that is tasty like candy. Not really edible but something looks delicious enough to make your lips look like shimmering soft pink candy glaze. The shine on this is intense and color is pigmented.

After swatching all 3 products, I have found that pigmentation is really awesome. They are bold and shiny. Colors though, are very different than what I usually see in a Holiday collection. I guess, I am so used to the dazzling red, green, and gold. Besides all, the colors are highlighting and the lipgloss is hydrating while moisturizing at the same time. It’s a bit sticky or tacky but lasting power is what makes this gloss stand out. So overall, they are quite nice.

What is Christmas with the hipness or the different color looks? NARS gives us the answer through a vibrant collection inspired by the spirit of Andy Warhol. The colors are stunning and bold not to mention pigmentation. Xmas can always come by sooner though!

All NARS Andy Warhol products will be available October 1, 2012 at SephoraNordstrom, and NARS Cosmetics.
