The $26,500 lip look – Really?


So we had to blog about this article we read recently, where make up artist Vlada Haggerty adhered more than 80 diamonds (about 6.5 carats) to a model’s lips over the course of an hour to create the living art piece. In total, the diamonds were worth about $26,500.

The transformation was done in celebration of the launch of Smashbox’s Be Legendary Liquid Metals and the Be Legendary Liquid Pigments.

The make-up pro’s stamp is all over the collection, and it looks like she has been enjoying using the products. She used them to craft a series of other insanely good lip looks for Smashbox.

  • Make-up artist Vlada Haggerty is known for her incredible liquid lip-art concoctions. Clicking on her Instagram account may very well result in hours spent scrolling through her signature pouts, many of which feature gravity-defying drips of lip gloss.
  • Each one of her creations is more captivating than the next, which explains why she has almost 675,000 followers. It also explains why Smashbox Cosmetics chose her to be its first-ever ‘Lip Editor-in-Chief’, a role in which she consults on all of the brand’s lip-related innovations.
  • In one of her first public appearances on the job, Vlada teamed up with jewelry designer Zoe Chicco to achieve, what we can only imagine, is the world’s most expensive lip-art look in history.

I think we’re a bit speechless!
