Nothing else makes you look as chic and confident with as little effort as a few swipes on your lips. From the flash of a red sole to a bold, empowering red lip, nothing says ‘Christian Louboutin’ more than red. Since 2015, this has been embodied by Rouge Louboutin lip color: one timeless red shade, vibrant on any skin tone, inspired by the signature Louboutin red sole.
This season, head to the Parisian beauty house as they introduce five new red shades to its Velvet Matte Lip Colour range. Each one a beautiful interpretation of Rouge Louboutin, the five shades feature Velvet Matte’s ultra-matte, intensely-pigmented color, and all-day coverage. Inspired by Middle Eastern antiquities and the Art Deco movement, Velvet Matte Lip Colour’s solid metal body is reminiscent of a precious vial. The turret-like crown cap is topped with a small ring threaded with a silk ribbon, turning the lip color into a necklace and certainly traveler-friendly for your summer holidays.
Christian Louboutin Beauty Velvet Matte Lip Colour is available at HKD $800 and available at www.christianlouboutin.com
