For those who know me personally will know what I am a huge fan of the Christian Louboutin lipsticks. Inexpensive? No. Worth it? Most definitely.
For Christian Louboutin, a designer and creator of rare objects, lipstick is a woman’s magic wand. No longer tucked away between the key ring and the nail file, the Louboutin Lip colour transforms a forgotten object into a treasured jewel.
Inspired by Middle Eastern antiquities and the Art Deco movement, the solid metal body is reminiscent of a precious vial. The turret-like crown cap is topped with a small ring threaded with a silk ribbon, turning the lip colour into a necklace.
For its very first line of lipsticks, the brand was inspired not by the shape – the stick – but by an attitude. “When a woman carries a handbag, everyone looks at her shoulders. When she slips on a pair of heels, they picture her walk. When she varnishes her nails, people admire her hands. No gesture is richer or more sensual than the slow, circular application of lipstick. Whether outlining, accentuating or embellishing the lips, this little object has the ability to transform a woman’s entire face. ”
The collection features 36 shades from subtle nudes and bright, bold options to deep blacks including the iconic Louboutin Red – in 3 different textures: Silky Satin, Velvet Matt, Silky and Sheer Veil.
And now the collection has extended in to a glossy version : Loubilaque Lip Lacquer – Rouge Louboutin (€80). This might become a true addiction as get full coverage is just one stroke. The lipstick’s don’t dry out the skin. It might be your birthday soon…
