Christian Louboutin Beaute Lip Colour Launches

Christian Louboutin Lip Colour
Christian Louboutin Lip Colour

Unctuous in nature, this formula is the perfect alliance of luxurious colour, sensuous feel and superior wear: Glides on lips with an opulent and sensual feel. A unique blend of ultra-fine colour pigments expresses deep and generous colour with a silky satin finish and soft shine. Medium to full coverage delivered in one stroke with a supple and soft feel on lips. A complex of natural oils and seed butters enhances moisturization for up to 4 hours and creates a protective effect against dryness. Maintains an excellent appearance on lips up to 4 hours without bleeding and with durable comfort. Available in a universal shade palette, ranging from light to deep tones, across mid-tonal and bright hues of pinks to berries, reds and corals, nudes and browns.

To facilitate every woman’s own unique expression, Rouge Louboutin is available in 3 different textures: Velvet Matte, Silky Satin and Sheer Voile. Combining a sleek line with an elegant curve, the bullet shape of the Silky Satin and Velvet Matte lip colours offers the optimal contact surface on lips, amplifying the sensorial experience on application. The Sheer Voile texture, tender in nature, offers equally optimal contact surface through the generous width of its bullet. Each lip colour features a subtle scent evocative of the feminine and glamorous qualities of a woman who enjoys cosmetic products. The colour will be encased in a gold base, crowned with a gold cap and offered with a gold ribbon. Consistent with the jewelry inspiration, they will also be presented in a shiny lacquer-effect jewelry box with a gold reveal. Offered in 3 finishes, each with its own unique design.

Lip Definer ($40.00) (New, Permanent)

To perfect the lip colour experience, Christian Louboutin offers an expert tool designed to highlight women’s lip contour. True to Christian Louboutin’s creative touch, this expert tool is designed yet again as an objet d’art. Unlike traditional lip pencils, the Lip Definer is intended to highlight women’s “lip contour”, define its natural tone without competing with the applied lip colour. And as such can be worn with any shade of lip colour or without any for naturally fuller looking lips. Upon observing that different complexions need specific nudes, Christian Louboutin created the Nudes shoe capsule collection. This was also the philosophy behind the Nudes Nail Colour Collection and now the Lip Definer shade assortment.

Urban Decay Holiday 2015 Collection

Urban Decay Holiday 2015 Collection

Vice 4 Palette ($60.00) (Limited Edition)

Some sequels leave you wishing the creators had quit while they were ahead. But the good ones keep you hooked and coming back for more. Urban Decay introduces the long-awaited arrival of Vice4—because there’s no such thing as too much Vice. We loaded this limited-edition palette with 20 addictively gorgeous, never-before-seen shades of our iconic Eyeshadow. Deep brights. Smoky neutrals. Gorgeous mattes. From C-Note (a pale metallic green) and Grip (a really beautiful smoky neutral) to Pandemonium (an amazing plum) and Deadbeat (a black satin that’s like nothing we’ve ever done), this palette has it all. We even included a huge mirror, a double-ended brush AND a coordinating bag.

Our inspiration for Vice4 came from a historical, classic UD source: the vintage shade name Oil Slick! We channeled all the darkly gorgeous, dimensional hues of an oil slick (the inspiration for the original shade) into a palette filled with rich, deep jewel tones. Vice4 features a stunning array of colors AND a wide range of finishes, from buttery-smooth mattes and shimmering metallics to shades laced with micro-glitter. The result? Our best Vice palette yet—and maybe even our best palette EVER. Word to the wise: Snatch this one up quick, because it’s guaranteed to go fast!

Vice4 comes in an extra slim case topped with a dimensional web of broken-down facets layered over a matte black lid. Rich, metallic inks give the case a mesmerizing, oil-slick effect and hint at the shades inside. Use the coordinating bag to keep Vice4 protected (and to keep prying eyes out of your prized palette), or use it to stash your brushes and other makeup essentials. Also included along with the palette: a double-ended Shadow and Crease Brush.

  • Bones Oyster satin with pearl
  • Grip Taupe matte with iridescent micro-glitter
  • Deadbeat Black satin with iridescent micro-glitter
  • Beat Down Deep metallic violet with blue micro-glitter
  • Pandemonium Metallic plum with iridescent micro-glitter

Urban Spectrum Palette ($55.00) (Limited Edition) ( Exclusive)

We couldn’t survive without our everyday black basics (tank tops, skinny jeans, boots and, of course, coffee)—but when it comes to makeup, we’re all about color. Urban Decay introduces Urban Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette. Satisfy your color addiction with a stunning spectrum of 15 shades of our iconic Eyeshadow. Experiment with never-before-seen shades like Flashback (an amazing bright, deep purple), Daybreak (a versatile soft bronze) and Flatline (the perfect metallic pale pink highlighter), as well as cult favorites like Junkie (teal green shimmer). Arranged in a gorgeous ombré rainbow of greens, blues, purples, pinks and neutrals, this LIMITED-EDITION palette is a shadow junkie’s dream.

Having a moment of déjà vu? It’s not you; it’s the case! We modeled the component after our coveted 15-Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection, only this time we drenched the whole thing in black. And if you thought that palette was amazing, you’ll go nuts for Urban Spectrum. With a veritable rainbow of shades, the combinations are endless! Match up the carefully coordinated trios or go wild and mix them up. We loaded Urban Spectrum with five totally new shades, four of the most popular shades from our current collection, and six returning favorites from past palettes (like the original Book of Shadows, The Vice Palette and Vice 2).

Urban Spectrum comes in a stunning, collectible black case with a smoky gray, faceted “UD” jewel and laser-cut, filigreed edges. The detachable lid houses a full-size mirror and stands up on its own—perfect for on-the-go touchups. Since a palette this gorgeous should live on long after the shadows are gone, we built Urban Spectrum to last! When you’re done with the shadows, remove the tray and use the velvet-lined box to stash jewelry and other mementos.

24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil ($20.00) (New, Permanent)

Every once in a while, something comes along that changes everything, and THIS is one of those times. Urban
Decay introduces 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil—a liner like no other. Developed specifically for use on the inner rim
in the waterline (and fully legit), this creamy, demi-matte pencil lays down waterproof color that lasts ALL day.

Line just your waterline or use this pencil to tight-line in between your lashes too. Even creamier than our original bestselling 24/7 Eye Pencil (yes, really!), this formula glides on easily and goes anywhere you want to put it. And
after the color sets, it won’t budge. We’re launching this pencil in five never-before-seen shades; once you try it,
you’ll want them all! Never considered using anything but black in the waterline? Steal Wende’s trick and try one
of our colorful shades for a look that really stands out.

Dior Addict Lipstick Relaunch for Fall 2015
Dior Addict Lipstick Relaunch for Fall 2015

The new Dior Addict formula is a breakthrough hybrid lipstick, delivering intense color and a long-lasting top coat in one. Featuring a Hydra-Gel Topcoat and a Triple Oil Complex at the core of the lipstick, Dior Addict lips are plumped with more volume and spectacular color than ever before. In addition, the collection of fashion-forward shades has been reimagined in three eye-catching finishes: pure color, shimmering and pearlescent.

Dior has created four must-have It Shades and corresponding Vernis shades to illustrate the new Dior Addict Lipstick Collection. Be Dior is an audacious raspberry inspired by the emblematic rose of the House of Dior, Wonderful is a fresh baby pink created in tribute to Monsieur Dior’s declaration that pink is a shade that can be worn “at any hour,” Smile is a versatile pinky nude that creates an illuminating, natural effect on the lips and Tribale is a pearly coral reminiscent of Monsieur Dior’s classic pearl accents. Each lip shade can be paired with a corresponding shade of Dior Vernis: Be Dior #892, Smile #552, Wonderful #868 and Tribale #588.
