     Guerlain introduces KissKiss Gold and Diamonds, the first-ever $62,000
 lipstick custom designed in France, adorned with 110g of solid 18-carat
 yellow gold and paved with a rain of 199 diamonds of 2.2 carats. Presented
 at a scheduled consultation by Guerlain's Artistic Director, Olivier
 Echaudemaison, KissKiss Gold and Diamonds is for those who indulge in
 lavishness and appreciate exceptional design.
     KissKiss Gold and Diamonds is a unique replica of the original
 top-selling KissKiss lipstick created in 2005 by Olivier Echaudemaison and
 acclaimed designer Herve Van Der Straeten.
     "Lipstick is simple, yet mysterious. One never really knows what she
 may uncover when the top is removed. This element of surprise creates
 curiosity and longing, which is what I hope each woman experiences when she
 clutches KissKiss Gold and Diamonds in the heart of her hand. It is
 powerful and unimaginable, unique and desired, obtainable and unobtainable
 at the same time," says Herve Van Der Straeten.
     Housed in a black lacquered wooden case, KissKiss Gold and Diamonds is
 refillable and accompanied by its own lip brush and protective black suede
 pouch. The gold encasing can be customized with a name or message engraving

     About KissKiss Lipstick
     Guerlain's KissKiss lipstick has become a favorite in the Guerlain
 assortment of high-end colour cosmetics and has further established
 Guerlain as an innovator in creating best-selling lipsticks (Guerlain
 created the first automatic lipstick and the first solid lipstick "Forget
 Me Not " in the 1920's). Enhanced with Precious Reflect pigments, KissKiss
 Lipstick reproduces the effect of precious stones. True reflection boosters
 (mica, titanium and silica), they play with light to offer lips dazzling
 reflections in three tailor-made effects: metallic pearl, glamorous sparkle
 or pure cream. The CreamSoft Complex (Vitamin A palmitate, alpha-bisabolol
 and waxes), combined with oils chosen for their softness, provides instant
 and long- lasting moisture. It offers lips suppleness and elasticity.
 Vitamin E smoothes and protects. Subtly perfumed with violet and red
 fruits. Easy to apply, KissKiss provides pure comfort and an exquisite
 sensual texture for hours.
