Christian Louboutin Loubilaque Lip Lacquers

If you were looking for something to get obsessed with, here comes Christian Louboutin with a dream array of brand new luxury, ultra-glossy lacquers: the Christian Louboutin Loubilaque lip lacquers that you can already get from Nordstrom and Sephora.

With a special packaging that allows using the lacquer cap as a stylish pendant for your necklace (which moreover reminds us about Louboutin’s vision of beauty items as objets d’art), the Christian Louboutin Loubilaque collection features eight different shades, the formula of which combines the rich pigmentation of a lipstick, the nourishing effects of a lip balm, and even the glamorous shine of a traditional lip-gloss.

The luxurious vial is designed in a mermaid tail motif, with a top that recalls an intricately decorated metallic crown. Each of the Christian Louboutin Loubilaque lacquers are sold along with a sensual black ribbon, the aim of which is to turn your lip lacquer into an unconventional pendant. The product’s black box is reusable as a fancy jewelry box too.

Sticking to Louboutin’s best beauty tradition, this line-up also got inspired by the fashion house’s signature red soles (less than a few month ago the designer unveiled nail lacquers inspired by the same motif), this time around translated to its most opulent version.

With a high coverage that draws all the attention to the lips, the shades were specifically made to flatter any skin tone, from the fairest to the darkest complexions. However, while some colors, such as Bengali and Colibretta, will inevitably add a dramatic touch to any style, others such as Altareva and Bikini feature softer touches.

Whether you are going for a bold color or a lighter shade, Louboutin made it clear what kind of personality he had in mind while designing the collection, and it was always a strong, independent woman.

“Loubilaque is for the bold woman who wants to bring attention to her lips. When she wears Loubilaque, she feels its power through others’ reaction to her,” the designer said in an official statement.

Available either in matte or shimmery effects, the lacquers reflect also the light, which means that going unnoticed wearing these colors on your lips is basically impossible indeed. Whether you are going for a matte or more shimmery effect, the results will look all the same: with his Loubilaque collection, Louboutin aims at creating an almost natural effect, not a ‘faux fuller lips’ look.

“Lips need to be fuller. [But] I didn’t want it to look plasticky. You don’t want to Botox your lips. We like a shiny patent,” he told WWD. “It’s highlighting your lips; it’s not coloring them. It’s putting a projector on [them].”

As for the shade that perfectly matches Louboutin’s red sole, it has been named Rouge Louboutin. On the other hand, you’ll have to go for Casanovella if you are into darker colors, which is a mix of a dark violet and a dark burgundy.

The Christian Louboutin Loubilaque lip lacquers retail at $85 each, which isn’t that expensive considering the fact that you also get a necklace pendant and a sleek jewelry box buying your favorite lip tint.
