Style News: Urban Decay x Jean-Michel Basquiat Collection


Make-up brand Urban Decay has partnered the estate of neo-expressionist painter Jean-Michel Basquiat for a limited-edition collection of cosmetic products.

Featuring small replicas of his art on its packaging, the new collection's colours echo the shades used in his street art. The artist died in 1988. Blush and eyeshadow palettes also come with small hook-shaped cut-outs at the back, so they can be hung on walls as small paintings.

The collection includes eye pencils ($32), lipsticks ($29, below), eyeshadow palettes ($62) and a blush palette ($52).

It is available at all Sephora outlets from today and will be sold at Urban Decay's Takashimaya, VivoCity and Bugis Junction stores from May 25.

The Takashimaya outlet is at B1-32 Ngee Ann City, 391A Orchard Road, open: 10am to 10pm daily, tel: 6734-3126.

The VivoCity outlet is at 01-13, 1 Harbourfront Walk, open: 10am to 10pm daily, tel: 6221-6259.
