Refillable Lipstick: Inspired by Audrey Hepburn's Signature Gold & Sapphire Cartier Lipstick Holder


Refillable beauty- even our lipstick can be refilled into your favourite modern or vintage lipstick holder.

When did the single-use disposable plastic lipstick holder become fashionable? Lipstick holders have been around since the late 1800s, when a French cosmetics company called Guerlain first began making lipstick. Before the days of disposable everything, lipstick tubes were refillable and a statement item. Our refillable lipstick tube was inspired by Audrey Hepburn's Signature 24 Carat Gold with Sapphire Cartier Lipstick Holder. 

The stunning 18k gold and sapphire Cartier piece was made for the actress specifically in either 1954 or 1955 and she carried it with her to events and galas throughout the ’50s and ’60s. It was engraved with her initials at the time, A.F. (at the time Hepburn was married to Mel Ferrer).

This unique piece was very dear to Audrey Hepburn and even her sons, as they remembered her using it for decades. While a piece like this is uncommon, what’s even more unusual is to hear the story of how it was acquired from the person who bought it.

 Get the look! With our lip and cheek colour, you can refill a favourite lipstick holder (fitting the standard 12.1 mm lipstick mould), or refill the metal one we provide when the lipstick runs out.
