When Christian Louboutin released his highly coveted stiletto-tipped nail lacquer ($50), the beauty world let out a collective gasp. The bottle is unlike anything we'd ever seen before. It's jaw-dropping—the kind of work of art that should be placed in a museum. Then, a year later came the equally swoon-worthy Louboutin lipsticks ($90), and our lips were never the same.
But the shoe (and beauty) mogul just outdid himself with a new product release that has us gasping, nay, shrieking once again: Louboutin lip lacquer (we know).
The brand insists that this offering is much more than any old lip gloss, boasting "intense color and shine," a "one-of-a-kind applicator," and "non-sticky texture"—all of the elements that make for a must-have lip product. It's also said to be "for the woman who isn’t afraid to stand out" and that she'll be "instantly aware of the power of her lips." Sign us up.
And while the formula itself is tantalizing enough, the packaging makes us want to set it on a pedestal on our vanities. The scalloped wall of the tube mimics a mermaid tail pattern that the brand says "encapsulate[s] the opulent color like an elixir." And just like the lipsticks, you can wear it around your neck like a pendant with its accompanying silk ribbon, if you so choose.
