Most women won’t blink when the cashier asks them to fork over more than $30 for makeup, because to most women, you can’t put a price on beauty. Art aficionados feel the same way and multimedia artist May Sum wants to exist where the two lines cross. The Hong-Kong-based artist has rather ironically immortalized a handful of fashion’s most iconic women, ranging from from Lady Gaga to Anna Wintour by carving their likeness into top tier lipstick brands YSL, Max Factor, Nars, Estee Lauder and M.A.C exclusively.

Each of these tiny homages takes Sum two weeks to complete, and ultimately end up costing collectors hundreds. Check out the entire collection on iVillage.
