Over the past couple of weeks, I noticed that there were rumblings of Christian Louboutin (yes, that famed red soled shoe brand) releasing a lipstick very soon. They had already ventured into beauty with their nail polishes, with packaging which could poke your eyes out. I believe this was last year.
There, that’s that nail polish bottle that could double up as a weapon if you’re pissed. Perhaps if you were disturbed while painting your nails? 😛 I wonder if they allow this on board planes. Hmm…
And yes, that is also what the Louboutin lipsticks are supposed to look like. To be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about the packaging. I’m not sure what it is they’re trying to channel and it has been compared to some *ahem* risque sex toys – not that I know anything about them *shifty eyes* 😀
But more importantly, each lipstick will retail at US$90. $90!! Now, I’m going to imagine that that’s a lot of money even by US cosmetics standards, although I can safely say that at today’s exchange rates which puts this at almost RM359 A TUBE it is freakishly expensive by Malaysian standards.
So this begs the question – Will you pay US$90 for a lipstick by Louboutin or any other brand for that matter?
