A good portion of the population may not have known that old lipstick can’t be recycled. A person who uses lipsticks can tell you that they’ve probably never used an entire stick of lipstick, but artist Agne Kisonaite created the ‘Giant Lipstick’ art piece to utilize these discarded make-up tools.

The Giant Lipstick is made up of with over 5,000 used lipsticks and weighs about 440 lbs. According to the video, it’s estimated that one lipstick tube is bought every four seconds and since lipsticks can’t be recycled, the amount of waste accumulated from these beauty utensils is staggering.

Kisonaite created the art piece to arouse society’s consciousness about its never-ending consumerism. The piece brings forth the important issue of responsible consumerism and how it affects everyone, not just the consumer.
