GIFT OF THE WEEK

Try not to die too hard over these gorgeous stocking stuffers like we did! Once again Kate Spade collaborated with Lipstick Queen’s creator Poppy King (one of our idols!) to create these three stunning colors, one for each holiday soiree! And don’t forget New Year’s Eve…

We’ve been really into lipstick crayons for a few years now and love it that Kate and Poppy whipped these up because the color payoff is rich and party perfect. I’ll be gifting a box to my sister and three besties (hope they’re not reading this)… You can grab one for yourself, I mean your friends, here.
