If you’re a self-professed beauty junkie, you would’ve probably read about the rise of C-beauty which is now synonymous with prestige, quality, and especially aesthetic pleasure.
It’s simply a visual feast for the eyes if you ask us!
And recently, we stumbled upon another C-beauty brand that may have just created the most adorable makeup product for Christmas.
Just take a look at this feline-themed lipstick collection, and you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about.
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.
Dressed in festive red, the lipstick packaging rings in the jolly season with holiday elements like the snowflakes.
At the top of the cap is a snow-coloured kitty in a sitting position, with different coloured eyes for different lipstick shades.
But if you think that the festive packaging is to die for, wait until you see the lipstick bullet up-close.
No, your eyes are not pulling any tricks on you.
The lipstick bullet is indeed embossed with a picturesque silhouette of the Forbidden City topped with snowflakes.
One of the shades even has specks of gold on the lipstick bullet – how gorgeous!
We’re not sure about you, but we certainly get why netizens on RED have been lusting over this combo of irresistible design.
And honestly, we don’t think we could even bear to use it because it’d be a shame to ruin the lipstick bullet.
Launched just in time for the festive season, the cat-themed lipstick collection has a total of five very wearable shades that will flatter most skin tones.
As for the lipstick formula, it’s said to have a moisturising matte texture that doesn’t dry out the lips.
Now, excuse us while we check out all five shades to hoard.
Palace Museum’s cat-themed lipsticks are priced at approx. S$23.40 (¥109) each on Taobao.
