On Friday, June 4th, Estée Lauder and Rick DiCecca fans alike gathered at Macy's on State Street to pucker up in hopes of setting a new Guinness World Record of lipstick application. Mission accomplished! Global Artist, DiCecca, applied lipstick to 303 participants in exactly 60 minutes – breaking the previous record of 180 applications. DiCecca was quoted, "I am ecstatic to now hold the very first Guinness World Records achievement for Estée Lauder. As a makeup artist, Im used to working under pressure and this success was definitely a new and different way to challenge my skills."

The rules were simple: the lipstick had to be applied to the upper and lower lip, while staying within the models' lip lines. A different lipstick had to be used on each model, but DiCecca was allowed to use any shade of his choice. The previous record was set by a European makeup artist in Madrid, Spain on March 3rd of this year. Shop Estée Lauder's beautiful lip hues online.
