Big reader? Big accessorizer? Love lipstick? Well, get psyched because literary-minded designer Olympia Le-Tan has joined forces with Lancôme to create a makeup-filled minaudière. Available for pre-order now, the limited-run 'Rouge in Love' clutch looks straight out of Le-Tan's cult accessories line— for which she reimagines iconic book jackets as embroidered evening bags—but this one holds six lipsticks and nail polishes in a range of rosy shades. The clutch's sides are mirrored (for easy touch-ups) and the cover depicts two manicured hands holding an imaginary book called Rouge in Love (how very meta). Only 100 bags were produced, and it will set you back $1,500, but worry not! The lipsticks and polishes are sold à la carte! Our favorites: the warm, dark-crimson Rouge Saint Honore, and the deep-wine Fiery Attitude—they're light, long-wearing, and highly potent. And as far as the nail varnishes, you can't get much more classic than the true-red Miss Coquelicot.
