Andy Warhol Palette Review and Summer Nights Tutorial


Hey guys!

So a few days ago I started playing with a new palette I got and this happened… when I had no where to go… yep, happens every time lol. What palette? The Nars Andy Warhol Debbie Harry palette. This as available Holiday 2012, but I found it at Marshalls for 28 bucks… I have no self restraint… none at all. So not only was this palette a great price, but it was Nars. What could go wrong?

The Packaging:

Nars Warhol Swatches (2)The palette itself is really nice. It has the typical matte sleek feel of a Nars product. It also has Nars embossed on the front, with Andy Warhol right under it. The actual name is on the back of the palette along with the amount of each product in the pans. Once you open the palette, there is a quote from Andy Warhol:

“I always say one’s company, two’s a crowd, and three’s a party”

Nars Warhol Swatches (1)There is also a pretty big mirror that holds itself up (YAY!). My only issue with that is that the quote is on the actual mirror. I get distract fairly easily so that’s a bit of a problem to me. You also have a pretty big portion of the palette as the blush and highlighter. In the middle of the palette is the actual shadows.


The Product:

Nars Warhol Swatches (3)This palette has 4 eye shadows, one blush, and one highlighter. Right off the bat, the blue stole my heart. I mean look at it. you’re in love too now lol. The colors are pretty pigmented over primer; without primer, they’re okay- still pigmented, but nothing that blows my mind. They do seem to be matte shadows with huge chunky glitter pieces in them. If glitter isn’t your thing, you will probably not like these too much.

Nars Warhol Swatches (4)Although they’re pigmented, they’re very easy to blend, and more importantly, build up for more intensity. They don’t feel as silky when you swatch them, but that is literally because of the chunky glitters. Speaking of glitter, if you are going to be blending these out, that glitter will fall out. I would recommend doing your eyes first then doing your face makeup, or using a very sticky base if you want the glitter to stick to your eyes.

The blush is interesting. It’s really build-able, but it’s one of those colors that you need to be careful with because you can get carried away. It’s perfect for Medium skin tones. For people with paler complexions, I would recommend using a lighter hand. For darker skin tones, I would say experiment. Try a light flush one day, and the next go a little more heavy handed (Key word a little. This blush is very very pigmented.)


Final thoughts:

I just wish this palette didn’t have so many super chunky glitter specks in it. Or if it did, that they would stay on my lid without a special primer. I do love the colors and how they apply though. What can I say? I’m a sucker for some nicely pigmented shadows 😉
