Limited-edition makeup and clothing collections are very popular, this here is some spectacular news. The globally-famous makeup brand L’Oréal Paris gave the announcement that they are going to team up with the luxury fashion house Balmain to release a completely new and unique line of lipsticks.
The amazingly talented creative director of Balmain, Olivier Rousteing, responsible for creating some of the most spectacular dresses and hanging out and dressing up the most popular ladies and men in the fashion industry (the Kardashians, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Zayn, Kanye, Bieber) is reportedly creating a line of 12 lipsticks. The collection will be based on 3 basic colors, and each color will have four separate shades.
The L’Oréal x Balmain capsule collection will be presented in September right before the next Paris Fashion Week when it will hit the Balmain Paris stores and possibly some other retail stores around the world. While L’Oréal has been very quiet regarding the collaboration, Olivier hasn’t wasted a minute to express how excited he is about his latest creation. What we can see from the photos and videos that he’s posted so far, there is a wide variety of colors, including different shades of pink, red, and purple. Some of the lipsticks are matte and others are metallic. Knowing Olivier’s breath-taking clothing designs everyone expects that the packaging will not lack awesomeness. This young genius has involved himself in every single part of the creation of the lipsticks, including the color and shade selection, the packaging, and even the ad campaign.
“Colour is not just in the palette of my clothes, it’s also in the girls. Some [shades] are really good on white skin, some are really good on Asian skin, some of them on black skin. Each group [of Balmain women] is really powerful but in different ways. This Balmain Army will become the L’Oreal Paris army as well.”- Olivier stated during his interview for Business of Fashion.
This is the first time that luxury French house has worked together with a beauty brand and everyone’s expectations are set very high. The Balmain dresses and clothes are way out of our price range, all we can do is wait until September and hope that we’ll be able to get our hands on the probably fabulous lipsticks.
