Patent Leather Kiss

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the shiniest of them all? Loubilaque! Christian Louboutin’s latest beauty creation draws inspiration from his longstanding love affair with lacquer. Not only did red nail lacquer inspire the iconic red sole of his shoes, but he has long admired the mirror-like surface of Chinese and Japanese lacquers. For his designs, he has often turned to the most brilliant of leathers, patent, to create iconic accessories with the shiniest of finishes. Now, for the first time, this inspiration enters the world of lip colour with Loubilaque. High coverage, high shine, and high drama, this new elixir bottles the spirit of lacquer. 

Enriched with the highest concentration of pigments, Loubilaque instantly animates with sleek, bold colour that molds perfectly to lips. Unlike lip glosses, Loubilaque is a lip lacquer that uniquely combines intense colour and shine, a difficult balance to achieve with a liquid formula. Exclusively designed for Christian Louboutin, its one-of-a-kind applicator, coupled with its comfortable, non-sticky texture makes application seamless and sensual. Each lip lacquer is infused with a subtle and feminine scent to amplify the application experience. In just one swipe, Loubilaque instantly shapes lips for the most polished result. Specially formulated to reflect light, the formula takes on brilliant dimension – almost as if a mirrored surface. Head-turning and eye-catching, Loubilaque is for the woman who isn’t afraid to stand out. 

Loubilaque not only beautifies the wearer but entices the observer. In keeping with Christian’s vision of beauty as objet d’art, the bottle is designed with thick clear walls carved with an intricate mermaid tail pattern to encapsulate the opulent colour. Mounted with a small ring threaded with a silk ribbon, the vial can be worn as a pendant. This treasure is enclosed with a turret-like crown reminiscent of the ornate aesthetics of Middle Eastern antiquities and the Art Deco movement. Rouge Louboutin is distinctively topped in a silver and gold cap while all other shades are enclosed by gold caps. The lip lacquer is encased in a jewelry-like box complete with a silk carrying pouch and silk ribbon.

Loubilaque is offered in 8 shades from nude to bright, including our iconic Rouge Louboutin. The elixir joins Velvet Matte, Sheer Voile, and Silky Satin Lip Colours, allowing women to find their perfect red finish and texture. No matter how bare a shade, the richly pigmented formula guarantees daring results.
