EGYPTIAN QUEEN NEFERTITI
First Louboutin releases nail polishes last year, this year it’s lipstick. Being inspired by the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, Babylonian architecture and the Art Deco movement, I must say, I’m swooning over the packaging but the formula might be a different story but who knows. There is going to be 36 shades released and one is the signature Louboutin red, Rouge Louboutin. It will come in 3 different finishes: velvet matte, sheer voile and silky satin. Each finish will have the Rouge Louboutin shade which comes in a black case instead. To differentiate the different finishes, the packaging is slightly different for each finish (click on the images below to enlarge).
Here’s the bad ish news. It’s $90 (works around to be £58 but it will most likely be more expensive due to UK tax etc) each. Ouch much? But I’m not surprised especially when the nail polish is $50 (£36 in the UK). This is also a two in one. You can wear it as a necklace too. It is released next month in the USA. I’m not sure about the UK but it will come eventually.
“An object that embellishes the lips—the beacon of sensuality and organ of communication—has to be fairly amazing. The object should inspire a beautiful gesture.”– Louboutin
