Hi Everyone, 🙂
I went to check the Christian Louboutin eyes collection yesterday here in Paris. Well, I couldn’t decide what to pick and what to leave so picked up everything. 😛 Well, you know for IMBB. 😀 Since the reviews would take a bit of time, I thought I’d do a quick preview of the full collection for you all. 🙂 We should have equal chance to drool over the gorgeous collection. 😀
The collection comes packed in these luxurious glossy boxes, exactly the way lipsticks are. I am glad they did not include the tissue pouches for every product this time. Although it was a lovely touch but it was such a hassle to keep storing those pouches.
The collection is actually inspired by India. How absolutely awesome is that! 🙂
Read this ” Christian Louboutin expands his universe to present an opus of eye amplifiers. Les Yeux Noirs Collection is imbued with the creator’s typical imaginativeness and glamour allowing women to reveal in the artistry of applying makeup. Inspired by his travels he looked to India’s rich culture and colours translated to products luxuriously saturated with rich pigments for the purest and deepest impact. Christian Louboutin wanted to capture the opulent decorative style of India as seen in Kathakali a form of classical dance where dancers’ elaborately drawn eyes and dramatic eye movements are integral part of the dance.”.

Christian Louboutin Œil Velours Velvet Eye Definer (Kohl Liners)
PS : you can actually pull out those ‘product detail tags’ on the pencils so that your pencils can looks pretty all the time. Only Christian Louboutin could have thought of a detail such as this. 🙂 Swatches :
Price : € 40/ INR 2800 approx.
Available in 5 shades. Each pencil comes with its own sharpener.
First Impressions : The pencil liners are smooth as velvet and once they set they just did not budge. You have some 5-7 seconds of smudging the eyeliners to create your smokey eyes. I am assuming they would be great as a base for your eyeshadows as well. The colors are stunning and very pigmented.
Kohl : A dark jet black. Love how intense black this is.
Deep Teal : As the name suggests, it’s a beautiful deep teal blue shade.
Zoulou : Deep chocolatey Brown
