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.

EVERYBODY IS A SUPERSTAR. AT LEAST
FOR 15 MINUTES.
In a new makeup gifting collection for department and specialty stores, NARS
captures the spirit of Warhol’s Silver Factory. The edgy energy of the Screen
Tests, the intense color of the silkscreens, and the cool of Warhol’s superstars –
underground icons and downtown divas who amazed audiences just by being
themselves. For Andy the factory characters were like a full spectrum palette –
personality as color.

SILVER FACTORY GIFT SET – $200
Andy listed his occupation as ‘Factory Owner.’ He called his silver-foiled studio
‘The Factory’ because for him art was work, and it took a team to make it. His
‘superstars’ surrounded him there, but he said he was hanging around them.

EDIE GIFT SET - $75
Edie Sedgwick was the sixties It Girl, with the biggest eyes, the shortest skirt and
longest legs. For Edie life was a non-stop performance. Edie and Andy were silver
haired lookalikes. Andy said “she had more problems than anybody I ever met,”
but she was his muse and if Andy were a girl he would have been Edie.
Presented in an authentic 16mm film canister, the gift set includes:
FILM STAR PURE MATTE LIPSTICK (60s nude pink),  EDIE EYESHADOW (Cream with a little bit of shimmer),  CARPATES EYELINER STYLO (Black), DEEP THROAT / AMOUR BLUSH DUO (Shimmering, sheer peach and matte peachy pink)

BEAUTIFUL DARLING GIFT SET - $49
Candy was the ultimate blonde bombshell. She was Andy’s greatest actress, even
though she was a man. She said “You must always be yourself no matter what the
price. It is the highest form of morality.” She thought beauty was a duty and worked
harder at it than anyone.

Accompanied by a silver deluxe cosmetics bag, the gift set includes:
CANDY DARLING NAIL POLISH (Electric Pink), FEMME FATALE DUO EYESHADOW (Sheer white shimmer and fresh mint green), WOMAN IN REVOLT LARGER THAN LIFE LIP GLOSS (Hot pink)

BACK ROOM (Black), SOUP CAN (Perfect red)
CHELSEA GIRLS (Innocent, flesh-toned beige), SILVER FACTORY (Aluminum)

IN AN EXCLUSIVE COLLABORATION,
NARS AND SEPHORA GO BOLD, BRIGHT,
AND POP WITH ANDY WARHOL
Andy said: “Pop art is about liking things.” Like flowers. Soap. Money. Celebrities.
Warhol loved silk screens because if you get the picture right, you can make
more just the same. But in a range of colors – something different every time.
Andy said, “I use mostly artificial color.” If you’re not trying to be real you don’t
have to get it right. That’s art.

DEBBIE HARRY EYE & CHEEK PALETTE – $65
Debbie Harry was Andy’s pal – the pop star and the pop artist. Debbie was thrilled
to be painted by him because it meant she was as famous as Liz and Marilyn.
A Warhol portrait was like the best makeover – looking great in all different colors.
Inspired by Warhol’s use of “Diamond Dust,” the palette’s colors sparkle with glitter
and Diamond Powder, made of real micronized diamonds. Palette includes:

Available October 1 at Sephora and sephora.com

KISS GIFT SET LARGER THAN LIFE LIP GLOSS – $55

flowers, soup, and lips. His paintings were pop themes and their bright, electric
colors popped off the walls.

WALK ON THE WILD SIDE GIFT SET - $39
In 1964 Andy painted flowers because he wanted to make something pretty.
Decades later they still look fresh, popping out of any background like a pretty face.
The gift set includes:
SILVER FACTORY ILLUMINATOR (Aluminum), IT NAIL POLISH (Black violet), ORGASM LARGER THAN LIFE LIP GLOSS (Peachy pink with golden shimmer)
Available October 1 at Sephora and sephora.com

Andy said, “Beauty really has to do
with the way a person carries it off.”
It’s an aura. A company once
approached Andy about buying
his aura. “I never figured out what
they wanted. Aura is something that
only somebody else can see.”
François Nars could see Andy’s
aura and here it is.
