Anyone who knows me, knows I love a red lip. There is nothing more elegant and sexy than red lipstick. There are so many shades of red, it can be mind-boggling, so you need to know what type of red works for you. I myself, prefer reds with blue undertones, rather than orange, so can you imagine my excitement, when I discovered that Christian Louboutin now has a lipstick!!! Velvet matte and satin finishes at that! I have yet to see them in person, I’m just thrilled by the fact there’s a Louboutin lipstick! The red I’ve seen online is called Diva (of course!), which is my kind of red. There’s also a gorgeous colour called Zoulou, which is a lovely nude; I also love nude lipsticks, my second go to shades.
The colour pictured above is Eton Moi, which is a gorgeous plum/purple. I was lucky enough to be gifted the Louboutin nail polish for my last birthday, which I’m yet to use, because it is busy being a statement piece on my bookshelf.
I’ve watched a few YouTube videos and the colours really do look amazing. At $90 they are a splurge; do we need a $90 Louboutin lipstick? No! Do we want a $90 Louboutin lipstick?? YES!! I’m hoping I’ll get lucky again and be gifted this beautifully packaged product (hint, hint!) or maybe a couple of gift cards should do it. Just the packaging alone is worth it.
A lot of the colours are sold out and you have to pre-order, expected delivery is early November. I think I’ll take a trip to Saks and take a look and try for myself. Stay tuned for my review of actual product.
