Look at my King and Queen! How awesome and regal do they look!
Look at the intricate design!
Each lipstick comes in a glossy black cardboard box with a red velvet shell lining, a small black pouch ( I read that it is silk but feels much rougher than silk) and a black ribbon that you can use to wear as a necklace.
The lipstick feels heavy and doesn’t stand up.
The lipstick number is printed on the interior tube.
Today I’m reviewing Rouge Louboutin 001M .
Here’s another close up of Rouge Louboutin 001M.
The swatches were taken indoors under natural daylight. They were not proper solid swipes as I did not want to press the bullet to hard just in case I would break it (yes I have done that during swatching!)
It was very easy to swipe, it glides on opaquely. And it really stained the skin that I had to wiped it down a few times and scrubbed it away.
Now here comes the impressive part…I love matte lipsticks and I have a variety of them from different brands. Rouge Louboutin 001M exceeded all my expectations. It glides on my lips easily with opaque strokes. It didn’t dry my lips out at all. I normally would have to dabb some sort of lip balm onto my lips during wear but with Rouge Louboutin 001, I didn’t have the need to. Rouge Louboutin 001M stayed on my lips for over 7 hours before I saw some fading in the inner parts of the lips. There was transfer to the coffee cup when I had a sip or two at work but there was minimal transfer to my teeth (which always happen when I wear bold lipsticks).
There is a mild rose scent when I sniff the lipstick but on my lips I couldn’t detect anything.
Now, we all know how expensive these Loubie lippies are. I was lucky that it was my birthday so it was given as a present. Do I think it’s worth the money? Personally, I think so. You can use the lippy as a neck charm or bag charm. It is a gorgeous luxurious item that would adorn any vanity table. I can not recommend other shades or finishes but if you have to splurge on one…let’s it be Rouge Louboutin 001M…a clasic red!
Verdict: It is total LOVE for me. It is a one off purchase and that I would treasure this baby for a long time coming.
Are you tempted by any of Christian Louboutin lipsticks? What do you think of the price?
