Apologies for missing in action from the blog world but I'm back! Today I want to talk about The Louboutin Lipsticks I picked up Rouge Louboutin and Rococotte. Lets start with the packaging, these gorgeous lipsticks are housed in a black glossy cardboard box with velvet red interior. The lipsticks come with a silk carrying pouch to prevent it from scratches. These heavy lipsticks that resemble elixir vials also comes with a silk ribbon which you can tie and wear as a necklace. The packaging was inspired by Babylonian Architecture, the design captures the ornate aesthetics of middle eastern antiquities and the art deco movement. The details are quite fascinating, the crown-like cap is painted red inside just like the soles of the Louboutin shoes. These lipsticks are quiet heavy, kind of like the Guerlain Rouge G lipsticks. These lipsticks come in three different finishes; sheer voile, velvet matte and silky satin. I went with the velvet matte finish. Overall, there are a total of nine velvet matte shades, nine sheer voile shades and twenty silky satin shades.

I noticed all three finishes have the classic Rouge Louboutin red lipstick. All three Rouge Louboutin lipsticks are packaged in a black tube with silver and gold crown cap. They claim these lipsticks are non drying, intensely pigmented, full coverage with just one stroke and last with comfort without feathering up to 4 hour. I have to admit all of those claims are true except for one. I had to go over it with a second layer to get a opaque finish. There is a slight sheen to it but over time it dries down to a complete matte finish. The finish of these velvet matte lipsticks are truly velvety, it glides on the lips smoothly. I'm really impressed with the wear time it lasted for, which was about 7-8 hours. I did have lunch and drinks and it held up pretty well, it left a soft red stain behind. These lipsticks are formulated without paraben, mineral oil and phthalate. It contains natural oils and seed butters, it enhances moisture for up to four hours.

Rouge Louboutin - A beautiful red shade. In my opinion, I feel that this lipstick will look very flattering on all skin tones.

Rococotte- A really pretty mauve rosy shade. I think this one will show up different depending on your skin tone.

Overall
 I will admit when I purchased these lipsticks it was mostly about the packaging but after using them I have to say Louboutin really got the formula down to a T. I love these lipsticks but I don't think its something you have to get in a hurry. Aside from the fact that they aren't labeled, they also cannot be stood up. I might splurge in the future and grab a few lipsticks from the other two finishes. If you're a lipstick collector or don't mind forking out $90 bucks for a luxurious lipstick then you must check these out.
