According to Christian Louboutin,after eyes, lips are the most expressive part of the face. Naïve. Intense. Sometimes dangerous. Sporting lipstick is therefore often a signature for an accomplished woman. Inspired by the attitudes thatlipstick conveys, the second chapter in Christian Louboutin’s beauty story delivers a range of lip colours in three finishes, including the brand’s signature Rouge.
Red lips can speak volumes. The colour that inspired Christian Louboutin’s iconic sole is now available for lips in a truly timeless shade suited to every woman’s complexion.
The complete lip collection boasts 38 universal shades, all named after styles found within Louboutin’s shoe and handbag collections. The iconic Rouge stands out in black, while the other shades are dressed up in gold.
Lip colour is always complimented, but a tube of lipstick often goes unnoticed. Christian Louboutin transforms this forgotten object into a precious jewel designed to be visible outside the makeup bag. Taking cues from Babylonian Architecture, the solid metal body blends ornate Middle Eastern aesthetics with details of the Art Deco movement.
The most dramatic and transformative formula to date bottles the esprit of Patent Leather. Brilliant and intense, the glassy shine appears to magnify the colour on lips.
Louboutin’s unparalleled sense of theatricality and creativity was honed in Parisian cabarets and nightclubs, where the graceful femininity of the dancers inspiredhis very first shoe creations.
