Matching your lips to your nails may seem woefully outdated, but you might think twice once you get a closer look at Christian Louboutin Beauty’s latest collection.
Reimagining the iconic red shade that adorns the soles of your favourite pair of Louboutins, the new Matte Fluid collection sees a new line-up of ten powdery matte shades and five metallic shades — a few of them creatively named after some of the quintessential heels from the brand itself.
With matte fabrics being one of the key materials featured in Christian Louboutin’s designs, the lipstick is a nod to the elegance and sophistication of the House’s signature look. With a luxurious texture that glides seamlessly onto lips, the Matte Fluid lipsticks set to a beautiful powdery matte finish that elevates your look in an instant. It’s bold, smooth, transfer-proof and super-comfy.
Metallics in shades of red
If mattes are not up your alley, Matte Fluid lipsticks are also available in metallic finishes with different sexy shades of red to help you spruce up your look. Inspired by the beauty of the cabaret in his early years as an apprentice at the Folies Bergere, Louboutin once said: “The cabaret and its dancers have always inspired me.”
These classic shades are housed in the same iconic bottle with black matte shading and an intricate mermaid tail pattern carved at the bottom. The Matte Fluid is also adorned with a luxurious black velvet ribbon so it can be worn as a vial.
Want to complete your look? Makeup Artist for Christian Louboutin Beauty Isamaya French recommends complementing the lip colours with the brand’s matte eye colours by blending in “a touch of Tape A L’Oeil in Lea or Lola over the eyelid and softly blend up to the eyebrow, before defining your eyes with black eyeliner and a layer of mascara”.
Follow up by pairing your look with a bright layer of Et Voici Et Voilà or Jamais Assez for the ultimate sophisticated daytime look.
Pair with polish
For the perfect monochromatic look, match your nails (and the soles of your heels) with the Matte Nail Colour that comes in five seductive shades. Encased in a faceted, weighted glass bottle, the matte nail colours also come with a tall slender cap that’s eight inches high – a nod to the tallest heel Christian Louboutin ever created.
With their quick-dry matte formula, these long-lasting nail colours promise to give you a moody and rich manicure that will have you looking polished.
The Christian Louboutin Beauty New Matte Fluid Collection will be available at Tangs Orchard and Tangs Online.
