KissKiss and Makeup

Mon dieu! Think you’ve seen it all when it comes to blinged-out extravagances? Think again. This week La Maison Guerlain rolled out an 18k gold diamond-studded lipstick case for its popular KissKiss line. The French cosmetics house is touting the case’s 2.20 cts. of 199 conflict-free diamonds.
