Inspired by his signature patent leather, a brilliant material iconic to the house of Louboutin, Christian has created this iconic product in three different shades; Khol (Blackest black), Rouge Louboutin (Vibrant red) and Lady Twist (Indian kohl blue).
This liquid eyeliner is a highly pigmented ink with a glossy sheen coat designed to bring intensity to the eyes. Its soft and flexible texture ensures that the formula applies with precision. No smudge, no smear, for all day wear. Thanks to its clear formula, you can easily correct a mistake but once applied and dried it is designed to stay.
I personally like the sheer finish imitating the intense red of his famous shoe soles. My favourite shade of them all is the Vibrant red; unusual for eye makeup as we tend to think of red only for the lips. Red is a colour that goes well with any skin undertone and adds immediate intensity to the eye with a modern twist. You can easily add a thin line on top of the usual classic black on your upper lid.
Christian Louboutin is often inspired by his travels and beauty icons. One of them, the infamous Queen Nefertiti from ancient Egypt, for her iconic sculpted eyes and nude lid precisely lined with carbon black charcoal liner. Also captured by the opulent decorative style of India seen in Kathakali, a form of classical Indian dance where the dancers are known for their extravagant eye makeup. Louboutin’s formulas and colours are influenced by the rich pigments of Indian culture and the packages inspired by the Egyptian motifs of lotus flower petals and obelisks meld with Art Deco geometry.
This luminous ink liner is homage to calligraphy and the high quality content makes it an obvious product to be this month’s feature as the iconic product of the month!< Back
