The products, created by the Palace Museum Cultural and Creative Store, provoked excitement among netizens and fashion lovers when they were launched months ago. The patterns on the lipstick cases were inspired by the museum's collection of ancient clothes and the colors came from some of the museum's porcelain wares. [Photo/]
