Christian Louboutin is growing his empire at a steady rate. The latest addition being the most wonderfully ostentatious lipstick we have ever seen. Or held. Or used.
Inspired by his Middle-Eastern roots (Christian recently discovered his biological father was Egyptian) the packaging is a nod to Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, with each lipstick doubling as a #LouboutinCharme.
If that isn't worth justifying the £60 expense, then the three finishes (Silky Satin, Sheer Voile and Velvet Matte), in 38 shades are. More than just a beautiful lipstick, they're serious objects of desire.
