In 1979, artist Laurie Simmons created Pushing Lipstick, a photographic work that sees a doll literally pushing down on a tube of red lipstick that is the same size of her. Now, 40 years later, the artist has collaborated with beauty brand Femme de Poppy to create her own lipstick.
PUSHING IT – the name Simmons’s beauty creation, was introduced by MCA Chicago during her retrospective show Big Camera/Little Camera. The lipstick is the perfect shade of poppy red that will brighten up just about any look, and is on sale in a limited run of 50 tubes selling for $50 each.
