Christian Louboutin Silky Satin Lipstick in Impera

11:52 AM

When I got this in the mail, I was over the moon with happiness because everything about this lipstick is posh. It has a mind-blowing work of art packaging (which I will surely recycle and use as a decor in the future). It is even housed in a carton jewelry box that for me, resembles a shoe box which is so fitting for the brand. 


According to Christian Louboutin: 

Silky Satin Lip Colour, the perfect alliance of luxurious colour, sensuous feel and superior wear. For Christian Louboutin, a designer and creator of rare objects, lipstick is a woman's magic wand. No longer tucked away between the key ring and the nail file, the Loboutin Lip Colour transforms a forgotten object into a treasured jewel.





Inspired by Middle Eastern antiquities and the Art Deco movement, the solid metal body is reminiscent of a precious vial. The turret-like crown cap is topped with a small ring threaded with a silk ribbon, turning the lip colour into a necklace.


Product description:

  • Glides on lips with an opulent and sensual feel. Sets with a silky satin finish and soft shine.
  • Applies medium to full coverage in one stroke
  • Features a unique blend of ultra-fine pigments for deep and generous colour
  • Lasts with comfort and excellent appearance without feathering for up to 4 hours
  • Presented in a re-usable black lacquer carton jewelry box including a silk ribbon and a silk carrying pouch.

But what made me fall in love with this luxurious piece of make up is the lipstick shade itself. Impera is a muted plum that I feel will look absolutely great with all skin tones. The shade is exceptional and the formula of this lipstick is beyond perfection. I don't have a lot of berry-toned lipsticks in my collection that's why I am delighted to welcome this to my humble lipstick family.


If you normally associate satin finishes with something that would make your lips dry and peel like a devil, do not fret because this lipstick will not do anything like that. As a matter of fact, this has got to be one of the most nourishing lipsticks that I have ever used in my entire life. This is even better than the Tom Ford lipsticks that I own.

Everything that they tell you in their ads about this lipstick range is true. This glides like butter on the lips while imparting the most luscious lip color on the lips. It is super pigmented and it doesn't settle into the fine lines on my lips. One quick swipe is all you need to achieve that perfect, opaque lip color.

And it gets even better than that. This lasts on the lips for hours without making your lips feel uneasy. It also leaves a nice, even tint on the lips after a few drinks and bites. 

Swatch!



In action!



One downside though is the hefty price tag (US$90 a pop) and another one is the fact that it is not readily available in our country. You can get this at Nordstrom (which ships internationally) though.
