ANDY WARHOLE FOR NARS

by Miryam Muller in


 Francois Nars Women’s Wear Daily reports that Nars Cosmetics will unveil a line of Andy Warhol-inspired makeup this fall licensed by with the Andy Warhol Foundation.

According to the story the makeup “is intended to evoke the cool, image-rich, character-laden world of Warhol in a limited edition collection said to showcase innovative packaging, formulas and shades.”

To those who say that the subset of women who want to slather garish Warhol colors on their faces might be vanishingly small, we remind you that the artist Cindy Sherman debuted a line with MAC Cosmetics this past fall, and her artistic creations would seem to be even less attractive, from a makeup standpoint. So it’s market-tested.

The Nars Warhole collection will launch in October.
