Christian Louboutin Beauté Reveals Colours Collection

After a successful Rouge Colour launch comes 30 new Saks exclusive hues.

We had a feeling that the launch of Christian Louboutin Beauté Rouge Nail Colour would be a huge success. The fashion world’s most iconic shade of red turned into a nail varnish? That one nestled comfortably in the no-brainer category. In our last post for Christian Louboutin, we mentioned that the Parisian brand had a few more surprises up its proverbial sleeve. Well, what we meant to say was that they had exactly 30 more surprises. Actually, 32, if you count the additional primer and gloss kit.

All 30 new shades, much like the original Rouge Colour, are inspired by classic Christian Louboutin shoes and have been grouped into three pairs of ten: The Pops, The Noirs and The Nudes. In order to differentiate one group from the next, each group’s Ballerina Ultima-inspired spiked cap comes with its own specialized metallic shade, made to complement their respective color stories.

Nail Colour – The Pops

When it came to prepping the most kaleidoscopic group of the bunch, a sleek silver cap turned out to be the ultimate complimentary look for this already chic design. “I love when I create something and the woman makes it her own,” says Christian Louboutin. “When she wears it in a way that I never would have imagined. I love to see people surprise me with their sense of colour and style.” Discover ‘Batignolles’ – ‘Bengali’ – ‘Escatin’ – ‘Lova’ – ‘Miss Loubi’ – ‘Mula Lisa’ – ‘Ni Toi Ni Moi’ – ‘Pluminette’ – ‘Popi’ – ‘Wherever’ now at Saks.com.

The Noirs groups are made up of blacks, intense blues, dark browns and greens. This line-up has a more decadent bent than the vibrancy of The Pops. To accentuate the richness of these 10 hues, the Christian Louboutin Beauté team went with a gunmetal spiked cap. A perfect choice. Here’s your chance to take home ‘Bianca’ – ‘Daffodile’ – ‘Farida’ – ‘Kheops’ – ‘Khol’ – ‘Lady Page’ – ‘Lady Twist’ – ‘Sevillana’ – ‘Very Prive’ and ‘Zermadame’. Christian-Louboutin-The-Nudes-Saks

Nail Colour – The Nudes

Khakis, vanillas, chocolates and soft pinks – they’re all represented in the rich and sensual ‘The Nudes’ line-up. To accentuate the soft, romantic patina of these 10 shades, team Christian Louboutin Beauté went with the very best cap option – imbued in a beautiful rose gold. ‘Alta Perla’ – ‘Just Nothing’ – ‘La Favorita’ – ‘Madame Est Nue’ – ‘Me Nude’ – ‘Simple Nude’ – ‘Sweet Charity’ – ‘Tres Decollete’ – ‘Tutulle’ – ‘Zouzou’ - they could all be yours.

I became crazily addicted to Sisley-Paris’ Black Rose Cream Mask after hearing that legendary makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury relies on it’s “instant youth” properties backstage on her model muses. This cult classic truly lives up to its anti-aging reputation; it eased the signs of fatigue and left my skin looking youthful and energized. It’s my go-to mask after a long flight, before a big event, or as part of my weekly skincare maintenance routine.

Upon hearing that Sisley had created its very first oil as part of the Black Rose family, I needed to get involved, like immediately. Sisley’s newly launched Black Rose Precious Face Oil is like heaven in a jar.

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to my skin, I am quite obsessed. I strive for perfection and live by the motto that with luminous, glowing skin, you don’t really need much makeup. I guess you could say that I am currently sporting the “no makeup” look, and with that, I like my face to look clean and radiant. Sisley’s luxurious oil is the easiest way to achieve the best skin possible.

This is how I use my latest skincare obsession that is sure to become a staple in my skincare routine…

Step 1: Morning and evening, wash you face as you normally would using your favorite cleanser, and pat dry.

Step 2: Apply a few drops (3-7) of Sisley Black Rose Precious Face Oil onto clean skin, focusing on your cheeks, forehead and chin. Make sure to avoid the area around your eyes.

Step 3: Using the tips of your fingers, blend oil into face and down into neck.

Step 4: Continue on with the rest of your skincare regime, applying serum, lotion or cream, followed by your eye cream, or simply use the oil alone.

Step 5: Watch as lines are smoothed, and the skin feels soft and supple. Even as the day does on, your skin feels and looks smoother, brighter and restored, without being the least bit shiny.

Sisley’s Face Oil is an anti-aging dry oil, so it doesn’t clog your pores, or make you look shiny or greasy. Not only does the silky smooth formula look and feel amazing, it is packed with powerful, plant-based active ingredients that nourish, regenerate and protect. It’s light enough to wear year-round, so if you live by the notion that oils should be shelved until winter, think again. The light floral scent has a slight aromatherapy effect, so it even helps me relax before bedtime. I apply the oil once or twice a day on clean skin, and follow up with the rest of my skincare regimen. I notice results right away – it’s like magic! Fine lines diminished. My skin appeared firm and plumped! I even noticed the dryness around my nose disappear after just one use. And in just a few drops, you too will see what I mean.
