This KUJI Cosmetics packaging is lipstick packaging that has not been seen before. Inspiration was the Japanese Harajuku Fashion culture the brand I created is “Kuji Cosmetics” which can be read around the acrylic case in silver vinyl.

A strong focus on the combination of texture, color, and form creates a contemporary yet harajuku inspired lipstick. A faux fur has been wrapped around a wooden wrapped base and an acrylic form with silver metallic vinyl then encases the product. It is topped off with white glitter paper and a painted polymer clay bow. The lipstick tube is also wrapped in silver vinyl.

This is a lipstick meant to keep on display after use and harajuku lovers can collect all designs and colors.
