Following a sensational eye kohl and mascara collection joining the signature Rouge line, Christian Louboutin’s dreamiest makeup collection yet just launched on the 1st of May. Designed for the hot summer sun as well as red carpet season, Louboutin’s Metalinudes range is, as the name suggests, a range of nail and lip lacquers in sensual metallic nudes.
The Metalinudes collection is inspired by the high-gloss patent leather, shiny specchio, and shimmery lamé used in the label’s much sought-after footwear finishes. Each shade has been carefully formulated to complement all skin tones and enhance the lips, as well as work for any occasion.
The shimmer from each nail polish (HK$450) comes from aluminium and tan opal mica pigments, which help the liquid shine like chrome, even with just one coat. Three new shades are offered: a limited-edition platinum silver “Irisa,” a gorgeous rose gold “Preciosa,”and “Goldissima,” a bronze-gold polish. Each glass bottle of nail colour is wrapped up in a luxurious yet playful embossed-python box, which is also limited edition.
To master a magnified pout, the new range of lip lacquers, also known as Loubilaque (HK$755 each), is a viscous formula that combines intense colour and shine, and designed to reflect light for attention-grabbing lips. The same “Goldissima” as the nail colour is offered in Loubilaque form, as well as “Preciosa,” on top of a “Bronzissima,” a deeper, goddess bronze shade for the lips.
