Giant Lipstick Cube, Anyone?

Hiya Poutlings

Leave it to the FRENCH to come up with a fresh, creative, avant-garde use for a practical product from one of their most iconic brands : conceptual artist Fabrice Hyber has created a 150kg, one meter cube titled 1m3 de Beaute of solid YVES SAINT LAURENT Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in shade 1 Le Rouge.

150kg = too much

Fabrice Hyber (who, its worth noting, is male) told WWD of his masterpiece

“Lipstick is a material that is very supple, especially in a large quantity. The material permanently moves. It is a work that is never finished, which is always evolving. It’s a living oeuvre.”

This makes total sense to me, as I know from experience that the buttery Rouge Pur Couture formula tends to make a melty “living oeuvre” out of my stupid face. The sculpture has just gone on show at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris.

If you happen to be in the neighbourhood, take a lip brush.
