Paint it Red: Christian Louboutin’s New Gorgeous Lipstick Collection

When Christian Louboutin first entered the beauty world debuting a line of insanely chic nail polish, we ardently hoped he wouldn’t stop there.

Our wish was granted: the French footwear designer has revealed a beautifully crafted lipstick line of 36 shades that run the color gamut from his signature red Rouge Louboutin to dark berry and plum.

Broken down into three collections or textures – Sily Satin, Velvete Matte and Sheer Voile – each and every shade is inspired by Louboutin’s iconic shoes and handbags.

For Louboutin, everything comes full circle:

“After the eyes, lips represent the most expressive element of the face. And there’s the fetish appeal, because lipstick can transform a face from intense to naive or even dangerous. 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 makeup becomes a rich and sensual gesture.”

Even the golden tube is a work of art – Louboutin was inspired by everything from Babylonian architecture to Middle Eastern antiquities to create a truly luxurious objet d’art.

“This precious object will be coveted by others,” Louboutin said of the tube. “Suggesting a purse full of rare and precious stones that could have been discovered in Ali Baba’s cave, it will arouse lust and desire…and is made to be stolen.”

At $90 a pop, Christian Louboutin Lip Colour will be available in September at Saks and us.christianlouboutin.com.
