Discipline: Fashion Design

In ancient times, Chinese people painted their lips by pressing them on a paper dip-dyed with red petals. This red paper is equivalent to the lipsticks we use today. However, we seem to have forgotten about the emotions and the intelligent design solutions linked to old traditions. This design is based on the ancient lipstick paper. You just need to pull open the stick, put the strap between your lips and then press your lips together. This simple and easy design embodies time-honored emotions and traditions. More importantly, you don’t need a mirror, or be able to see your lips, when coloring them, so this lipstick is also very suitable for visually-impaired people.

Real self-adjusting lipstick.
