The Rouge Louboutin Matte Fluid Lip Colour collection features 10 shades like the iconic Rouge Louboutin the same shade adorning the soles of your favorite heels and Et Voici et Voilà an orange-red. If mattes are not your thing, the brand has also released five shades of their new Rouge Louboutin Metal Matte Fluid Lip Colour in a few of their classic shades and housed in that same iconic bottle. To create the selection of powdery mattes and metallics in sexy shades of red, Louboutin drew inspiration from the glamour of his early years working at Folies Bergère and Paris’ Crazy Horse cabaret. “The cabaret and its dancers have always inspired me,” he explained in a press release.
For anyone who loves that monochrome look, the Rouge Louboutin Matte Nail Colours comes in five shades to match the lipsticks perfectly (not to mention, the soles of your Louboutin heels). Keep your nails matte longer with the Rouge Louboutin Matte Manicure Set that has a matte base and topcoat.
These iconic reds are for more than your nails, lips, or shoes. Makeup artist for Christian Louboutin Beauty Isamaya Ffrench, who helped create the formulas explained how to create two looks using the lipsticks for a fully monochrome face and nail ensemble. For the day she suggests “blending a touch of Tape A L'Oeil ($50) in Lea or Lola on and under the eyelid and softly blends up to the eyebrow.” Finish off the look with eyeliner, mascara, and a bright red lip.
For a night look, “blend your Tape A l'Oeil in a deep Bronze Brown or Golden Block, starting from the innermost corner of the eye and sweeping out towards the edge of your lid.” A daring look that's worth the price.
The collection is available online and in Saks Fifth Avenue Stores.
