When I'm reaching for a lipstick, it's usually because I want to channel a Hollywood Icon. Seriously, if I want to feel confident, I reach for a red that Ava Gardener would wear. If I want to feel cheeky and sexy, obviously I'm grabbing an Ann Margret pinky-nude. Naturally, when I received word that Laura Mercier was releasing a 15-piece limited edition lip collection in celebration of the 20th anniversary of her brand, I was pretty excited.

Not only does she make some of my most favorite lipsticks to and glosses ever, but the fact that these goodies were named and inspired by five Hollywood icons makes them even more divine in my book. Read on to get all the details on the new launch.

What It's Called:

Laura's Leading Ladies

How Much It Will Set You Back:

Well, let's say it's an investment... $298;

What Makes It Special:

A number of things. You get five shades for five icons: Catherine (nude), Sophia (rose), Joanne (coral), Bebe (pink), and Vivien (red), which are all universally flattering. You also get the shades in Laura's Velour Lovers Lip Color formulation, as well as her Creme Smooth Lip Color and Lip Glaze, so you can choose the dramatic finish you want to create with each shade and customize. Also, the jewelry box it comes in is just plain gorgeous.

Who’s It For?

This is great for anyone who loves film and/or lipstick. It also makes a great gift, and the holiday season is basically here.

When to Use It:

Day and night, whenever you want to channel someone f-i-e-r-c-e.

What It Feels Like:

Doesn't matter the finish you choose, they're all comfy and wearable.

What the Internet Is Saying:

What It Smells Like:

Lightly of vanilla.
