One of the more intriguing gift sets offered from the NARS Andy Warhol Collection is the Edie Gift Set.  It’s presented in an actual 16mm film canister printed with a stunning picture of Edie on the front.  Inside you’ll find the staples you’ll need to create a look based off of one of Warhol’s muses!

001 002What the NARS website has to say about the Edie Gift Set:

Exploding on the scene like a comet, Edie Sedgwick was the quintessential sixties ‘It Girl’ and Andy Warhol’s most memorable muse. Presented in an authentic 16mm film canister, NARS celebrates Sedgwick’s iconic style with superstar essentials. Your world is your screen test.

Set Includes:

  • NEW Film Star Pure Matte Lipstick—60s nude pink

  • Edie Eyeshadow—cream with a little bit of shimmer

  • Carpates Eyeliner Stylo—black

  • Mini Blush Duo in Deep Throat and Amour—flirty, sheer peach and peachy pink

  • 16mm film canister

  • Retail Value – $101.60

009 014 015 016The Mini Blush Duo for this set includes two favorites from the core NARS line - Deep Throat and Amour.  On one side you have a brightening highlight of golden pink shimmer, and on the other a deep, flat rose.

The Carpates Eyeliner Stylo is the perfect liner pen to create a precise and dramatic line that will stay the day.  I love to dot it along the lash line (sideways) to create a thin line, but it’s also extremely easy to make a medium or thick line.  One of the best liner pens out there!  I have also swatched & reviewed Koala and Atlantic here.

The Edie Eyeshadow is quite literally the perfect cream highlight shade for any look, or for an all over nude eye to pair with Carpates Eyeliner Stylo!  Soft and lovely, with just a bit of shimmer.

The Film Star Pure Matte Lipstick is new and is described as a nude pink.  This color is going to be difficult to pull off, since it resembles concealer.  I’ve found that putting a vibrant gloss over-top (such as Holly Woodlawn) will make it more wearable, but will also take away from the whole “Edie” look.

Inside are several inserts including a mini book on Warhol as well as a get the look card.

  1. Wow – from the swatch I literally thought that WAS concealer, and I was wondering why they chose to include a concealer, since it wouldn’t work for most people. It’s really a pity that it’s not a better shade, because I love the Pure Matte lipstick formula, and the rest of the kit looks really nice!

  2. I honestly thought that the lipstick was a concealer but, it is still not a bad set at all. I wouldn’t mind getting it for myself.
