Christian Louboutin Eyes

First came the nail polish, then lip colour and fragrance. What next for Christian Louboutin beauty? The eyes, of course! After bringing his signature Rouge Louboutin to the world of cosmetics it was only a matter of time before mascara, eyeliner and brow-definer got the Louboutin treatment. The collection, available for the first time next month, doesn’t disappoint. Inspired by Kathakali, a form of classical Indian dance in which the dancers communicate with their elaborately drawn-on eyes, the collection is a decadent love letter to eye amplification. Encased in surprisingly weighty Art Deco-inspired hardware, the mascara is designed to help you recreate Queen Nefertiti’s infamous sculpted eyes, while the liquid eyeliner comes in deepest black as well as the signature Louboutin red, the man himself’s interpretation of l’oeil de briase which, for the uninitiated, is the burning look of desire. Sounds good to us.
