Memorial Day-6

Honoring the heroes who serve to hold our flag high – Happy Memorial Day!


Hong Kong artist May Sum sculpts celebrity style icons out of lipstick and it’s simply spectacular. She only uses lippies from MAC, YSL, NARS, and Estee Lauder.

She has sculpted mini masterpieces  of Lady Gaga, Coco Chanel, Kate Moss, Twiggy, Madonna, and Princess Diana.

She also offers custom orders for anyone who wants a lipstick sculpture of themselves. These little beauties are very fragile and need to be stored in a dry area within 62-77 degrees so they won’t melt in hot temps or crack in high temps. Custom orders start at $620 and can be purchased on her etsy page.
