NARS x Andy Warhol Larger Than Life Lipgloss in Viva

So I’ve come to the end (as of now) of my Holiday 2012 Haul. This is the last product from the new holiday releases that I managed to get. I’ve purchased some items after this one, but I don’t think I got anything from the other holiday releases anymore. (Yet. Hehe.) Anyway! Viva is a NARS lipgloss from their Larger Than Life line, and was also released as part of the Andy Warhol collaboration for Holiday 2012. The Larger Than Life Lipgloss is: Outrageously lustrous color meets high-impact shine. Dramatic, stay-in-place shades glide on smoothly and evenly for lips that are more luminous and voluminous than ever before. High-shine, high-impact finish gives a dramatic effect Long-lasting, stay-in-place wear Infused with ingredients to nourish and fight free radicals while natural lip enhancers pump up volume Shorter-bristle brush delivers the most precise application possible I think it’s a different formula from their normal (?) glosses, but I’m not entirely sure. Anyway, I do love the formulation, especially coming from a place where I detested glosses. It’s a …

Counter Swatch: NARS x Andy Warhol

I dropped by the NARS counter yesterday and took a few quick swatches of their holiday collection, which is a collaboration with Andy Warhol. Sarie asked Robbie, the SA, to hold an Edie Set for me, but I wanted to look at some of the other products, too. The sets are rather pretty. The two collections that are not exclusive to Sephora seem to be available here, except for the polishes. TV Party, an orange shade, is the only individual polish that seems to be available in Manila. The Larger Than Life Lipglosses (Php 1450) are the first ones I swatched. In order, from the top: Viva, Penny Arcade, International Velvet, Candy Says, and Holly Woodlawn. The formulation is rather nice, though sticky. I was turned off by gloss a few years ago, and this is the first one I’ve tried—and liked—since “going off” of glosses. The Soft Touch Shadow Pencils are a tricky subject, something I’m willing to try, but perhaps not right now. Top to bottom, Calabria (not part of this collection, but …

NARS x Andy Warhol Counter

I was a sick over the long holiday (lucky me!), so Sarie took a photo of the NARS x Andy Warhol counter for me. I will try and swatch them tomorrow, and maybe pick up a few things, too. My makeup ban is lifted if there are a) special GOOD DEAL sales, and b) limited edition items that I must acquire. I can’t wait to see these for myself tomorrow. (!) I will update you guys with another edition of a Counter Swatch, or if I’m lucky, a Real Review!

NARS Andy Warhol Collection

I heard about NARS’s collaboration with Andy Warhol back in late August, but really didn’t think much of it after reading not-so-stellar reviews. However, upon a second look, I’ve found a few products I wouldn’t mind trying out. For the record, I love NARS. The first product of theirs I’ve ever tried was, of course, Orgasm (in blush form). Scandalous name, but really after typing it out and saying it so many times, it has no meaning to me anymore. Except a pretty pink flushed blush, that is! It would be a while before I purchased any more NARS products, mainly because I didn’t really know what I wanted to try out. Then, I came back to a NARS counter and purchased a sheer, dark lipstick (Vendanges) and my first hint of love for eyeshadows (Ramatuelle). And now I’m pretty much in love. So, the Andy Warhol collection comes in three “waves”—a holiday collection, a gift set collection, and one that’s exclusive to Sephora. I won’t bother with the Sephora collection, because they don’t accept …
