Christian Louboutin's New Lipstick Line Inspired by Queen Nefertiti
Fall fashion wouldn't be complete without some Christian Louboutin stamp in sight. First it was the red bottoms, then ravishing red lacquer introduced to us by Louboutin's first nail polish collection. And now we can look forward to the red lip.
Inspired by Queen Nefertiti of Egypt, known for her elegant beauty and stunning features, it seems Mr. Louboutin has done his research. “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. “With its slow, circular application, lip makeup becomes a rich and sensual gesture.”
Judging by what we've seen, the beauty balms will be nothing short of rich and seductive. Available in three finishes and 38 shades, the lip lacquers feature brilliant blushes and bold reds. Encased in vials as adorned as the heels come high, the gold tubes are topped with bejeweled crowns and accented with dazzling studs. The lipsticks will be available at Saks Fifth Avenue in September at a retail price of $90 each.
