Christian Louboutin To Launch Lip Color Range

Christian Louboutin Lip Color color range

New, Permanent
Release Date: September 2015
Availability: Nordstrom, Sephora

Company’s Description

“This precious object will be coveted by others. 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… 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.” –Christian Louboutin

In September, Christian Louboutin Beauty will be adding a Lip Color range. The Silky Satin range will have 20 shades, the Velvet Matte range will have 9 highly-saturated shades, and the Sheer Voile range will contain 9 sheerer shades. Each lipstick will cost a whopping $90 and will first release at Saks.
