OMG this week has seen four of the most amazing beauty collaborations of late. We’ll slow down and breathe…the excitement in the Snap office is palpable! Here’s part one…

1)    Nars x Andy Warhol

We have been obsessed with Andy Warhol’s art forever and one of our favourites is that portrait of Elizabeth Taylor with the punchy green eyeshadow. And now, we can paint our own faces with a collection from Nars inspired by the great pop artists’s prints. Hurray! One of our favourite pieces from the collection is the Warhol monochrome eyeshadow palate- but is it too pretty to use…is  it itself a work of art?!

(P.S. the pics came out this week but the collection drops on 1 November)

Palette £39.50 from the NARS Silver factory collection
Super perky ‘Beautiful Darling’ collection £34.50
Lust-have cosmetic bags comes with collection
The colourful option. Portrait palette £39.50

2)    Carine Roitfeld for MAC

One for sexy senoritas. This looks like a super chic way of updating old make-up bag favouites as the collection is based on Carine’s chic and smudy signature eyes- or as she puts it, ‘tired sexy’. Now we can rock the tired look, but this Mac launch might help with the other bit and OMG there’s a video!

There are 21 pieces to collect (and you can justify a few as they are smoky staples) but as with all Mac collections you better catch them while you can.

Carine says: “Beauty is about a small accident, it is not totally perfect. Sometimes bad things are the more beautiful things. So when you wake up and you haven’t taken off your mascara and you look a bit tired, but tired sexy – this is what I like.”
