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.
Andy Warhol Flowers (source)
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!

Oh gosh, that lipstick/gloss combo is divine! I shouldn't check that site out, because I know I'll start wanting a million things!ReplyDelete
Hi Sunny! Isn't that a divine combination?! You will definitely find yourself drooling over all of their offerings! I have found lots of difficult/impossible to find things at Izzy's over the years! They are amazing!Delete
Gorgeous combination. That Shu lippie looks luxuriously pretty and sophisticated! I imagine you look stellar on a daily basis Helen!ReplyDelete
I am very pleased with the combination! You are so sweet for saying that, but I often lounge about in sweats. I definitely go for comfort over all else when I am working from home (writing lectures, putting together powerpoint presentations, conducting research etc.).Delete
I miss not being able to buy Shu in person. When it was at my closest Nordstrom we became extremely good friends but I haven't bought any since.ReplyDelete
I agree, it's very sad that there are no longer Shu counters here!Delete
*gasp* Can I just... um... *licks your arm frantically*ReplyDelete
And good lord, Izzys sells testers? *_* And they have Tokyo Lights palettes! Whyyyyyy would you bring this place to my attention? :(
Hi Kate <3Delete
Yes, one can certainly get into lots of trouble on the Izzy's website! YES, they sell testers from many of the brands! It's hard to believe that they actually have the Tokyo Lights palette! Sorry for being a temptress! :-)
Wow!!! that eyeshadow is so pretty. This is my first time to see that kind of design in an eyeshadow. It has great combination of colors. I will def going to check on this.ReplyDelete
Hi Ana, I agree-- it's a spectacular palette-- not only is it itself gorgeous, but the taupe it creates when the colors are mixed is just stunning!!!!!!!Delete
gosh that andy warhol palette is gorgeous! i want it but i have lots of similar colors already and if i do buy, should i use it or just stare at it?!? seems too unique to not own... what do i do?!!?ReplyDelete
Hi Chia-Yi, I agree this palette is truly stunning! The hardest thing for me to do was to swirl all of the colors together in order to create that stunning taupe! That said, using this palette is such a great joy! If you get it, I am sure that you will covet it! Keep me posted! :DDelete
Oh! My! I love that Nars Eyeshadow Palette! I am just starting my Nars makeup collection. I have the new Nars Blush in New Attitude, I think is the color. It is a beautiful pink, I know that for sure....LOL! I love pinks, roses and some peaches!ReplyDelete
Hi Beth! You and me both-- this is by far my very favorite NARS Eyeshadow! It is so gorgeous, and the taupe that is created by mixing the shades is just stunning! I don't have New Attitude, but it is a gorgeous shade! I love pinks as well, and my stash of pink blushes has gotten out of hand since that is by far my favorite shade! :DDelete
