I'm no car person, but even I get giddy when I glimpse a retro Caddy on the road. So you can imagine how enamored I am with this custom-painted ride. It is completely covered in lipstick prints.


You'd think someone designed this art-on-wheels in honor of Lipstick.com because we are exactly that amazing. But the real story is that it's a collab between Smashbox Cosmetics and cult-favorite illustrator Donald Robertson; the lipstick motif is based on one of his iconic prints. The Smashbox x Donald Robertson custom 1974 Cadillac Eldorado is about to embark upon a cross-country drive from L.A. (starting at Smashbox Studios) to Miami (for Art Basel—it'll park outside of the Shelborne Wyndham Grand). Along the way, the car will make stops in various cities, where lucky fans will be the first to get matching lip-printed tubes of a new cherry-red Smashbox Legendary Lipstick, called Bing. See if your town's on the schedule!
