If you’ve ever sat and pondered about what to do with all of those half-used tubes of lipstick cluttering your makeup drawers, well, you’re not the only one.

Artist Fabrice Hyber has created a giant sculpture, made with a whopping 330 pounds of Yves Saint Laurent lipstick. According to Fashionologie, it's called "1M3 de beauté"  (translation: one cubic meter of beauty) and is currently on display at the Palais de Tokyo museum in Paris.

“It’s a material that is very supple, lipstick, especially in a large quantity,” Hyber told WWD. “The material permanently moves. It is a work that is never finished, which is always evolving. It’s a living oeuvre.”

The sculpture will be on display inside the museum until Jan. 7.
