Christian Louboutin has launched their newest venture into the beauty market, with the Louboutin Lip Colour collection. And my gosh are these the most luxurious and beautiful lipstick designs I have ever seen! For the Parisian icon, a designer and creator of rare objects, lipstick is a woman’s magic wand. The designs and shades were inspired by ancient symbols of power and beauty, that prompted Christian to fabricate a lipstick like none other—as an objet d’art designed to be worn not just on your lips but as a talisman inspired by the artistry of Art Deco and the ornate aesthetics of Middle Eastern antiquities. Each of the lipstick tops has a circular clip atop it, so that you can thread it onto ribbon, a chain necklace or even use as statement drop earrings! Each lipstick is presented in a re-usable black lacquer carton jewellery box that includes a silk ribbon and a silk carrying pouch too. Gosh he’s really thought of everything.
A timeless universal red suited to every complexion. “When a woman carries a handbag, we look at her shoulders. When she slips on a pair of heels, we observe her walk. If she applies lacquer to her nails, we admire her hands. With its slow circular application, lip make up becomes a rich and sensual gesture. Whether accentuating or mattifying the lips, this little object has the ability to transform the entire face. When imagining a lipstick that no longer serves its primary purpose, the idea of a jewel jumped to my mind. As a result, I gave my lipstick the appearance of a pendant, to be worn around the neck, as a pair of earrings, or even just to be clipped where you want.” – Christian Louboutin
The new line to the Beauté Louboutin brand includes 38 lipstick shades, led by the iconic Rouge in three unique formulas; Silky Satin, Velvet Matte and Sheer Voile. These particular three Rouge lipsticks are most special, encased in a black bullet with silver crowns for tops, each with a different designs to reflect their finish. The full collection offers these lipstick finishes too: with Silky Satin in 20 shades that are the perfect alliance of luxurious colour, sensuous feel and superior wear; Velvet Matte in 9 shades that have an opulent colour and soft touch feel, with non-drying comfort; and Sheer Voile in 9 shades for nourishing sensation and radiant colour with a luminous shine; as well as a Lip Definer available in 5 shades, the self-sharpening expert tool that defines and highlights the lip contour, for a perfect lip makeup and naturally fuller looking lips. These are truly the most one will spend on lip products, but boy will they be worth it! Merci beacoup Christian Louboutin!
