OMG. They’ve arrived. The urban myth is true! On the 1st September the Christian Louboutin Lipsticks arrived, swanning into our lives all golden and sexy and opulent and…So Versailles ;). They have dropped bombs on all the other lipsticks on the market, and have claimed the throne as the most chic and fashionable lipsticks…like ever. Like if Anna Dello Russo was a lipstick she’d be one of these bad boys. Ok so I’m gonna give you the run down of my experience with the lipstick I bought, along with some pros and cons….Leggo *dun dun dun click clack ting (from ‘Look At Me Now’…duh)*
Let me just start of by saying that the world’s most aesthetically pleasing lipstick comes at a price, the rather excessive price of £60 each. Yes, sixty, not sixteen, 3-4 times the amount of a high-end/designer lipstick. Who pays this price? Wealthy people who don’t know what else to do with their money and the stupid but relentless slaves to fashion and novelty, such as…the wonderful and talented writer of this blog. For £60 you’d expect the lipstick to do tricks and transform your lips into Kylie Jenner’s in a matter of seconds, but no, it doesn’t do that it just looks pretty. Oh and it comes with some cheap piece of string so that you can wear it as a necklace…no thanks (like that makes it worth it!?) I will say this though, the lipstick is damn good.
Christian Louboutin Lipstick Review
There are 3 finishes: matte, satin and sheer. I went for satin as it’s the safest bet – matte can be a little drying and sheer can be not more more than a tinted lip balm (no thank you). I’m into nudes atm so I went for “Tutulle 700”, which is a classic nude. Peruse the photos above for swatches, how the colour came out on my lips and the finish. I also copped the matching nude lip definer in “Leanue L10”. I only have pros regarding the lipstick. I love the creamy-ness and the finish and pigment are super amazing. The definer is very very long lasting (I had to scrub with my make up wipe) but I assumed this sexy little fellow had a twisty mechanism revealing more liner however I have attempted to twist…to no avail. However, there seems to be some sort of magical mechanism which reveals more product already sharpened when you put the cap back on…nothing short of sorcery.
Basically, if you’re obsessed with fashion and beauty to this extent that you might just be able to force yourself to pay £60 for a lipstick then do it. It’s beautiful and glorious and maybe even worth it. The lip definer? It’s cheaper than tattooing your liner on..with the same effect. You choose.
