A few months ago, the folks over at NARS announced plans to release an Andy Warhol-inspired collection. Now, the first images from the range have surfaced. From the floral shaped wells in the eyeshadow palette trios to the iconic Debbie Harry lip-emblazoned packaging, this is shaping up to be one of the most exciting releases from a makeup brand this year. The limited edition range consists of two sub-collections, the “Pop Art” one, which will be sold at Sephora, and a collection inspired by Warhol’s ‘Silver Factory,’ which you can find in department stores.

Sounds like a regular ‘ol Tuesday afternoon to me. (Telegraph)
