£70.00 for one lipstick? Who would spend that…? Well of course I had to have one!
Christian Louboutin Silky Satin Lip Colour is quite possible the most striking beauty product I have ever seen. I have lusted over it for a long time and felt incredibly spoilt when my husband surprised me with one in the iconic shade ‘Rouge Louboutin’.
What Christian Louboutin say about the product
‘Rouge Louboutin’ is the iconic signature shade from Christian Louboutin Beauty’s ‘Silky Satin’ lipstick collection, denoted by its slick lacquered black case. This glamorous and classic red offers medium-to-full coverage with a satin finish and moisturizes for four hours without bleeding.’
I have never had a lipstick with such glamorous, eccentric packaging. The lipstick is housed in a black case which is perfect to display. The lipstick itself comes in a black, metal vial inspired by Middle Eastern antiquities and the Art Deco movement. The lid resembles a crown and is silver with gold studs around the edge. The lid has a ring on it which a silk ribbon is threaded through so it can be worn as a necklace. I’m not the kind of girl that would ever wear a lipstick as a necklace, but it does add to the eccentric nature of the packaging.
The shade is the perfect red. It was designed to be the perfect mix of mix of warm and cool tones to suit all complexions. The lipstick glides on easily and has a lovely texture, it feels like a moisturising film on the lips and stays put for hours. I only need to top it up once throughout the day,
So was the lipstick worth £70.00? I’m not going to say I need one in every colour as it is a lot of money! However it is extremely luxurious and as a makeup collector it is a special piece to have in my collection. The packaging must definitely add to the price tag but it is definitely worthy to have on display and a talking point when worn. I love the texture of the lipstick and I feel completely fabulous when I wear it!
