Olympia Le Tan's 'Rouge In Love' Lancôme Minaudière Is Here

In December, we reported that Olympia Le Tan would be taking her signature book cover-esque minaudières to Lancôme for a special Valentine’s Day collaboration. The Rouge In Love minaudière ($1,500) is now available for pre-order, complete with 6 lipsticks and 6 nail polishes displayed in a removable shelf. Make no mistake, this case isn’t meant for just storing beauty products – Le Tan wants you to take it out on the town:

I wanted to design the cover of an imaginary novel called Rouge in Love. My idea was to create a ‘mise-en-abyme’, a book within a book. It is held by two hands with painted nails and surrounded by little red and violet lips that seem to dance around. I love drawing lips, so it was the perfect opportunity… The clasp and side, instead of having a gold finish like my other designs, are silver, like a mirror. Perfect to look into during the evening if you want to touch up your make-up.

If your budget doesn’t permit the $1,500 splurge for the minaudière, you can still shop Lancôme’s entire “In Love” collection, which will set you back $15 for nail polish and $26 for a lipstick.
