First Look: Christian Louboutin Lipstick Line

There’s nothing better than a stunningly chic pair of Louboutins – except, maybe, that same glamour for your lips. The renowned designer recently revealed his latest creation, a fashion statement that comes, this time, in a tube. As sexy as his iconic red-soled stilettos, Christian Louboutin’s lipstick line reflects the designer’s signature aesthetics, taking inspiration from his heels and handbags.

Louboutin made his first foray into the beauty world in 2014 with his premier nail polish collection. Since then, fashion and beauty connoisseurs have been eagerly anticipating the designer’s next move. Available at Saks stores in September, the Louboutin lipstick collection offers 38 hues and three finishes: Velvet Matte, Sheer Voile and a glossy, full-coverage option called Silky Satin.

Inspired by the Egyptian queen Nefertiti, each shade of Louboutin lipstick comes in a slim, bullet-shaped vial topped with a crown. Most of the tubes are an opulent gold, though there is one black lacquer case per collection (a signature Rouge Loboutin shade). The perfect marriage of fashion and beauty, the caps are adorned with tiny loops, allowing them to be attached to a chain or ribbon and worn as a necklace. At $90 a color, the price tag isn’t for the casual lipstick user. But ultimate luxury – whether a pair of leg-lengthening heels or a pout-perfecting shade – is worth the cost.
