Christian Louboutin Launches Lipstick Luxury!

His iconic shoes have graced the feet of every major celebrity from Beyoncé to Victoria Beckham to even Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, and now Christian Louboutin is slowly but surely making his way into the beauty world, this time launching his own lipstick line!

Fashion and beauty lovers worldwide went crazy for Mr. Louboutin’s opulent, stiletto inspired nail varnish range when it launched last year and trust us this will be no different. Of course, anything Christian Louboutin designs is pure luxury, and you can expect no less from this collection. The 38 piece (he’s not messing around!) lipstick range is packaged in gold and black styled bullets with crown lids, which can also be worn as necklaces to keep them close by and on show of course!

The collection is split into three different textures, Silky Satin which features 20 shades with Velvet Matte and Sheer Voile coming in nine shades each so you have a range of colours and finishes to choose from.

Sheer Voile Collection 

Taking his inspiration from the Middle East, art deco and the Queen of Nefertiti you can expect a variety of nude, crimson and decadent jewel-like shades. Although no Louboutin collection would ever be complete without the signature Rouge Louboutin, which will come in it’s own special black lacquer casing unlike the others in gold. Who wouldn't want to match their lips to their shoes?!

 Speaking of his new collection, Christian Louboutin shared his thoughts on the desire his lipsticks will create, "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." The word “stolen” does scare us a little so obviously we are suggesting you hold on VERY tight to your lipstick!

As amazing as it all sounds and looks, the lipsticks do come with a hefty price tag! Each lipstick will retail for £60/$90, yes you heard us correctly! Although, we like to think of it as an investment! Technically you are getting an ultra luxurious designer lipstick and an ornament or necklace that you can keep forever as well as an "objet d'art" as Mr. Louboutin puts it! Did we convince you? Our bank balance might hate us for a little while and we might go without a few meals but it’s a genuine need!

The lipsticks will be available to buy online at from September 1st. Form an orderly queue ladies!
