The all-new lipstick collection is designed by Beijing’s Palace Museum, a.k.a. the Forbidden City, which was China’s imperial palace from 1420 to 1911.

Yes, you did not read that wrongly. The museum actually ventured into the cosmetics territory in the last few years and sells a variety of beauty products at its physical and online store, called the Palace Museum Cultural Creativity.
