"Matching Lips and Fingertips" was Charles Revson of Revlon's slogan in the Fifties," and it could be Christian Louboutin's slogan as well. Louboutin, famous for his signature red-soled stilettos, commonly referred to as "sammy red-bottoms" (Rouge Louboutin - colour code Pantone 18-1663 TPX) introduced his unmistakably-styled nail lacquer, featuring a bottle with a stiletto-shaped top) in 2014, at the staggering price of $50 per bottle. If that staggered you, imagine the outcry when he released a limited-edition, crystal-embellished bottle at $695 - costing more than some of his shoe styles.
And now? The logical follow-up is a 38-shade lipstick collection, including Rouge Louboutin, so beautifully packaged that they can be worn as necklaces.
Textures include Sheer Voile, offers a sheer, luminous shine; Silky Satin, a full-coverage satin-finished lipstick with a hint of shine; and Velvet Matte, deeply saturated shades with, well, a velvet matte finish. Debuting in September at ChristianLouboutin.com, the lipsticks will retail at $90.
In addition, there is the new Louboutin photo app, Louboutinize! Allowing you to wash your photos in Rouge Louboutin or Crystalize them as if seen through a diamond, or add clever, whimsical legs to any photo. Available now from iTunes.
