Christian Louboutin launches luxury lipstick collection.The new line has been inspired by Babylonian architecture, Queen Nefertiti of Egypt and the Art Deco movement.
“After the eyes, lips represent the most expressive element of the face. And there’s a fetish appeal, because lipstick can transform a face from intense to naive or even dangerous,” said Louboutin in a press release. “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.”
The line comes with 36 shades of high-end lipsticks available in 3 textures: Silky Satin, Velvet Matte and Sheer Voile. Each of the luxurious 36 shades is priced at $90.The line will be available in September at Saks Fifth Avenue and on Christian Louboutin official website.
