These are not your average lipsticks — each one is like a mini objet d’art, inspired by Babylonian architecture, Queen Nefertiti of Egypt, and the art deco movement as well as the label’s bags and shoes. What that looks like in reality is a gilded bullet case that doubles as a necklace when a satiny ribbon is threaded through, making it the most elegant multitasking product on the market. The 36-shade range launched in September. There are three distinct textures — Silky Satin, Velvet Matte, and Sheer
Voile — all comprised of natural oils and seed butters to hydrate your pucker. Expect shades that vary from the brand’s iconic red sole color (Rouge Louboutin) to rosy nudes to vampy plums and poppy fuchsias. Let the frenzy ensue!
