Um… it’s not exactly a secret around here that we’re absolutely ob-sessed with Olympia Le-Tan’s amazing accessories. The self-taught Parisian designer has won a serious cult following in Hollywood for her carryalls, which transform our reading lists into handcrafted clutches (technically referred to as minaudière). Literary staples like Lolita, The Pearl, and The Catcher in the Rye have already gotten Le-Tan’s intricate treatment, and for her latest project, she’s bringing her word-perfect aesthetic to your beauty drawer. Le-Tan and Lancome have teamed up on a case inspired by the cosmetics company’s “Rouge in Love” lipstick and stuffed with goodies.

Filled with six lipsticks and six bottles of nail polish in shades like Rouge Valentine, Miss Coquelicot, and Midnight Rose, this lust-worthy kit will hit stores just in time for Valentine’s Day. However, you’d better make moves fast— only 100 of the styles will be up for grabs when they land February 1. While the $1,000 is definitely NOT cheap, how many chances do you have to score a designer handbag, a work of art, and some beauty swag all in one go? Better start saving…
