Next Big Thing from Christian Louboutin: Rouge Lipsticks - Finally!

Louboutin Beauty just celebrated their one-year anniversary of their nail colour collection this July, and then yesterday, magazines, online media, and pretty much the entire beauty industry were crazed over the news that a lipstick collection will be launching in several weeks.

Introducing Louboutin Charme!
"Is it a lipstick, is it a pendant?!?
Have fun anyway!

Obviously, these are not only a lipstick; they are objets d'art, as with anything Louboutin creates.  With a ribbon threaded through the small loop atop the black or gold bullet (Rouge Louboutin, his iconic red, comes in black and all other colours come in gold), it allows the lipstick to be worn as a statement necklace.  Don't you hate digging through your bag for lipstick, lipgloss, lip-whatever?!  I admit, I get so lazy sometimes that I don't reapply and my lips get dry.  Perhaps this will solve that... or maybe it's my excuse to get one, or two, or even three!  I see some colours that I want to snatch up already.

There will be 38 shades offered in three luxurious textures: Sheer Voile, Velvet Matte, and Silky Satin, with names inspired by their iconic bags and shoes such as Bengali, Tres Decollete, Very Prive, and of course Rouge Louboutin.

The Sheer Voile Collection: 9 colours
For sheer to light coverage with a luminous shiny finish

The Velvet Matte Collection: 9 colours
For full coverage in a non-drying matte formula

The Silky Satin Collection: 20 colours
For medium to full coverage with a smooth, satiny finish

Mademoiselle Chanel once said, "The best things in life are free.  The second best are very expensive."  How true her wisdom still holds since Louboutin Charme will cost you a pretty penny - $90 each.  I couldn't find any information on the size in ounces yet, but given its price, I hope these are no smaller than the luxury lipstick they just surpassed in terms of dollars.  Louboutin Charme will be available on and at Saks Fifth Avenue this September, in time for the holiday season and parties!  It's the perfect stocking stuffer, too, in my opinion.
“After the eyes, lips represent the most expressive element of the face. And there’s the fetish appeal because lipstick can transform a face from intense, to naïve or even dangerous. When a woman makes up her lips, the rest of the face seemingly disappears. Unconsciously, she might become more aware of her lips and her elocution and expression. A red lip can speak volumes, think of the blood red mouth of Edith Piaf, helping the diva morph into a voice. Sporting lipstick is therefore often a signature for an accomplished woman.” ~ Christian Louboutin
