Nars Andy Warhol Eyeshadow Palette in Flowers 2 ($55) follows the same format as the Flowers 1 palette from this series (reviewed here), so I won’t repeat. All shades in this Flowers 2 palette–the white, the periwinkle blue, and the background taupe, are softly shimmered (the white sort of glows).
The whites and the blue flowers each have a twin in this palette–I could not detect any significant differences between the two whites or the two blues. I sort of loved the soft ethereal blue in this palette. It’s a soft blue with a fair amount of gray and a touch of purple, which works well with the taupe and cool white of the rest of the palette. The blue reminds me of the color added to gas–a modern yet somehow retro color. The overall theme is cool toned, which looks softly dramatic on my warm skin tone.
The Andy Warhol inscription on the palette’s mirror is “You need to let the little things that would ordinarily bore you suddenly thrill you.” Swatches:
One more set of swatches:
I swatched the taupe background first, then both white flowers, then both blue flowers for completeness. Overall, I’ve enjoyed this unusual palette. I love the background taupe and the lavender blue, and the white is quite smooth and workable. Those with deeper toned eyes and cool skin tones are likely to love this palette as well. After I review my favorite palette from this collection (Flowers 3), I’ll post a picture comparing the taupes and whites of all three Flowers palettes.
My experiments with the longevity of the Nars Andy Warhol Eyeshadow palettes is continuing. Today I wore one of the Portrait palettes (review upcoming) over a Laura Mercier Eye Base and got beautiful all-day wear.
