Eye make-up meets objet d’art with a new Christian Louboutin Beauté collection
Christian Louboutin, purveyor of the iconic red sole, launched its first beauty offering in 2014 with a capsule collection of vivid nail colour. Lipsticks and fragrance have since followed and this week, Louboutin Beauté extends its collection with a bold new line of eye make-up.
The ranges includes a Lash Amplifying Lacquer Mascara (£55) for dramatic volume, which glides on for a smooth, flake-free finish and patent leather shine; Oeil Vinyle ink liner (£58), available in black, kohl blue and a daring vibrant red; Brow Definer (£33) and Velvet Eye Definer (£33) in rich, lasting shades.
“I was always fascinated by how much the eyes say. The eyes have a life. Make-up only accentuates what you want to reveal.” – Christian Louboutin
Like the rest of the Louboutin beauty collection, these are design objects as much as they are cosmetics. The ink liner adopts Louboutin’s signature stiletto-like spiked lid, while mascara is presented in an opulent, jewel-like box. Gold lids crown the brow and eye pencils, atop shiny lacquer branded with Louboutin’s recognisable scrawl.
