When Christian Louboutin captured the essence of his iconic Red Sole with Rouge Louboutin Nail Colour, he introduced to the world a new universe of beauty.

It glides on lips with a creamy, smooth, nourishing sensation, accenting your lips’ natural radiance with wet, luminous shine. A complex of natural oils and seed butters enhance moisturization and create a protective effect against dryness.
Each Lip Colour hue features a subtle scent evocative of the feminine and glamorous qualities of a woman who enjoys cosmetic products. All colors are inspired by iconic Louboutin shoes and handbags. The Lip Colour is sold with a black silk ribbon that turns the lipstick into a necklace and is enclosed in a black, lacquer-like effect reusable jewelry box. It also includes a carrying silk pouch. 0.12 oz. Shade Rouge Louboutin features a black case with a silver and gold top. Paraben-free; mineral oil-free; DEA-free; phthalate-free. Clinically tested.
