I’m beyond excited. When this press release came in, I became torn between staring that these images and getting down to the business of sharing it. I want to include as much information as possible, because these images show the most beautiful lipsticks I’ve ever seen. Are you ready….?


From Louboutin:  When Christian Louboutin captured the essence of his iconic Red Sole with Rouge Louboutin Nail Colour, he introduced to the world a new universe of beauty. With his innate sense of allure, playfulness and theatricality, his vision is to unveil women’s femininity and amplify their assets, not to correct their imperfections. Like a red line started with the iconic red sole which inspired a whole line of nail colour, once again, Rouge is source of inspiration for “something beautiful” as Christian Louboutin launches his first collection of lip colours.

The design of the Rouge Louboutin shade is in a black case with a silver and gold crown, and sold in a black box with a red interior. According to the line:

As a designer and creator of spirited objects, Christian Louboutin has transformed the everyday lipstick into a woman’s magic talisman. A beautiful objet d’art worthy of display, yet so intimate as to be worn like a precious jewel. Inspired by Babylonian architecture, the design captures the ornate aesthetics of Middle Eastern antiquities and the Arts-Deco movement.

The solid black metal body, reminiscent of a precious elixir vial, holds the iconic Rouge Louboutin. The cap is mounted with a turret-like crown of silver and gold featuring the red reveal accent on the inside. Topped with a small ring threaded with a black silk ribbon, it turns the lip colour into a necklace which can be worn at any desired length. Designed with ergonomics in mind, the object is meant to rest comfortably in the hand, inspiring a beautiful gesture allowing for a controlled and graceful application.


Rouge Louboutin Lip Colour will be enclosed in a beautiful reusable shiny black lacquer effect jewelry box with a red reveal.

As for the other shades, the colour will be encased in a gold base, crowned with a gold cap and offered with a gold ribbon. Consistent with the jewelry inspiration, they will also be presented in a shiny lacquer-effect jewelry box with a gold reveal.


All will come with a silk gauze carrying pouch.

The Louboutin lipstick range will be offered in three textures. According to the line:


To facilitate every woman’s own unique expression, Rouge Louboutin is available in 3 different textures. Combining a sleek line with an elegant curve, the bullet shape of the Silky Satin and Velvet Matte lip colours offers the optimal contact surface on lips, amplifying the sensorial experience on application. The Sheer Voile texture, tender in nature, offers equally optimal contact surface through the generous width of its bullet. Each lip colour features a subtle scent evocative of the feminine and glamorous qualities of a woman who enjoys cosmetic products.

  1. The tubes are certainly stunning!

  2. This has to be the most incredible lipstick design I’ve ever seen. I would splurge just for this design. Beautiful.

  3. wow, that’s some cool design! the price is not that outrageous, all considered.

  4. The epitome of elegant luxury.

  5. Gorgeous design. Wearing it as a necklace reminds me of being a little girl and buying lipgloss on a necklace 🙂

  6. Oh, oh, OH… I’m fainting! Love these- I can’t wait to see swatches!

  7. Oh my, those are so lovely! Since the moment I heard of Louboutin Beaute, I’ve been eagerly anticipating this, and that iconic red in lip form!

  8. I suppose if I think of this as an art object instead of a lipstick, $90 does not sound so much like a “let them eat cake” object as it feels. The tube is both very striking and more than a little garish. Some of the colors look just gorgeous, but I think the name “Belly Bloom” must lose something in the translation. These are not for me, though I will certainly enjoy living vicariously through Internet swatches!

    Love the Maria Callas grimace in the one photo!

  9. I want to love these, I really do. The packaging is exquisite. But $90 for a lipstick, objet d’art or not, I just cant justify it.

  10. I’m beyond excited about these! If they’re done nearly as well as the nail polishes are, they’ll be worth every penny. I think it’s great that they’re spacing out the releases to perfect each product.
