The very first Louboutin lipstick line

Yesterday evening, I went to Christian Louboutin's lipstick launch party.

Hosted at a pop-up space in Soho, the space was dressed to take us on the journey of Christian’s vision when creating the line.

On entry, the first space was laid out to mirror his working area. This merged shoes, Diptyque candles, sketches and lipsticks to name a few things, with lots of flowers as shade inspiration.

Images from the campaign were illuminated against an otherwise dim working space.

Our next venture was into a room of televisions, scattered in between with Louboutin boxes. Christian had given a lipstick to friends of his from around the world, people from Paloma Faith to Caroline Issa, and told them to create something special to celebrate the launch. These screens merged all of these interpretations and provided the perfect teaser for the collection itself.

Next was our chance to try! Make-up artists were on hand to allow us to try our chosen shade. With the full range to choose from, it was a choice of texture and shade.

Each wand is cased in a way to mirror the texture of the lipstick inside. With 3 finishes to choose from, you have the following wands…

Christian Louboutin Lipstick Cases

Velvet Matte Lip Colour in a matte wand: a suede finish with full coverage

Christian Louboutin Lipstick Bengali

Silk Satin Lip Colour in a shiny wand: a classic glossy, pigmented lip finish. The majority of shades come in this finish.

Christian Louboutin Lipstick Pink

Sheer Voile Lip Colour in a scaled wand (like a mermaid’s tale): a wet glossy finish with sheer pigmentation

Rouge Louboutin, the red-sole-red, is the only shade available in all three textures. This is housed in a black wand.

My favourite shade from the range is the Velvet Matte Lip Colour in Bengali, a hot pink.

What do you think? Will you be treating yourself to one of these? If you do, make sure you visit the pop-up space that they’re displayed on in Selfridges London. I visited today and between the lipsticks and the nail varnishes it is simply beautiful.

Christian Louboutin lipsticks are now available from Selfridges at £60 each.
