For years Izzy's Perfume & Beauty Shoppe has been my go-to place for limited edition collections and Europe and Asia exclusives that don't make it into the U.S. marketplace other than by extraordinary means and ridiculous pricing (eBay). I also am unwilling to resort to places like eBay for these items because it's often difficult to know if what you are getting is authentic.
Andy Warhol Eyeshadow Flowers No. 3 Palette was the one that got away from the NARS Andy Warhol Collection from 2012. I swatched it numerous times and was getting ready to buy it, but I waited too long and it slipped away. When I saw that Izzy's Perfume & Beauty Shoppe had it in stock I was thrilled. Mixing the colors together creates on of the most gorgeous and perfect shade of taupe imaginable, and all it needed was a perfect twinkling burgundy lip to finish the look. So I let my imagination run wild, and this is what I dreamed up.

A captivating, limited-edition eye shadow palette featuring the art of Andy Warhol. Flowers 3 features white, pink champagne, and dark brown against a shimmering lavender gray background and black overspray.
The Andy Warhol quote, "All is Pretty" is inscribed on the mirror.
If you seek the perfect taupe, then this palette really delivers.
Gloss d’Enfer colours and shapes the smile for deceptively innocent, daringly glossy and deliciously provocative lips. Its fine, non-sticky texture glides over the lips like a veil. Composed of mineral and botanical oils, it maintains hydration and keeps the lips soft. Intensely luminous, it guarantees a shimmering, shaping and plumping finish on the lips.
Tint your lips with rich moisture and long lasting comfort. A stylish black box outfits the lipstick package which features the cute mon shu girl character. A key color of the collection, this vivid red may lead you to a kiss under the mistletoe.
I love this combination-- it is easy to wear and offers a very easy polished look.
Overall assessment: LOVE LOVE LOVE!
