Beauty Must-haves From Gaga's Workshop
Little monsters greeted Lady Gaga yesterday when she unveiled her collaboration with Barneys, which transforms the entire fifth floor of the Madison Avenue Men's Store into Gaga's Workshop - an elaborate retail environment and window display featuring crazy art installations with wild colors and bold patterns. Everything is designed by Lady Gaga under the creative direction of Nicola Formichetti (Gaga's stylist and Creative Director of Thierry Mugler) and artists Eli Subbrack and Christophe Hamaide Pierson. The Workshop features different stations including the Candy Shop, Toy Shop, Closet (for apparel and accessories), Library (for books and media), Gallery (for collectibles), Jewelry, Holiday, and the Boudoir featuring candles and cosmetics.
The Boudoir station is obviously a favorite considering the beauty products created by some of my beloved makeup brands exclusively for the Workshop. Here are the ones I can't wait to get my hands on:
Edge of Glory 3D Holographic Nail Lacquer, $45
This box set of two Deborah Lippmann nail polishes creates a 3D Holographic manicure with some serious wow-factor. It includes a base color and top color.
Extreme Sheen Lip Kit, $47
Hourglass Cosmetics put together three sparkly shades of intensely-hued lipgloss that gives a hydrating and soft effect for a luscious pout. The kits includes G1, a golden sparkle, G2, an iridescent fuchsia sparkle, and G3, a rosy sparkle.
Monster Red Lipstick, $25
This bright shade of red was created by Poppy King of the Lipstick Queen and it’s not your basic red, it’s Gaga red.
Beauty is Life Brush Combo Set, $128.50
These Beauty is Life makeup box set includes four products all inspired by Gaga. Each combo includes two perfect shine eye shadows, a liquid eye primer and a powder/blusher brush. It comes in three shades: Violet with iridescent purple and white shadows, Blue with iridescent aqua and white sparkle shadows, and Pink with hot pink sparkle and pearlescent white shadows.
Born This Way Lip Gloss, $26
Nars created this baby pink shade of their Larger Than Life Lip Gloss is perfect when worn alone or over your favorite lip color. It also contains ingredient that are known to add volume to the lips.
Nail Prints, $35
One of Lady Gaga's nail artists, Naomi Yasuda, designed these limited-edition Minx stick-on nail prints just for the Workshop. Get them in a silver or gold (pictured) print.
Press-On Nails, $45
Nothing screams Gaga like extravagant press on nails. This black and gold chain design is my pick but there are six more to choose from. Each set comes with 24 nails in 12 sizes.
There's something at the Gaga Workshop for everyone and with every purchase, you're doing a great deed. Barneys will be donating 25 percent of sales from everything featured at the Workshop to the Born This Way Foundation - which was founded by Gaga and her mother to encourage empowerment and equality and help create a positive change. You can make your purchases at Barneys New York or online at Gagasworkshop.com (the website is just as fun as the store!).
