Christian Louboutin just released his first nail polish, Rouge Louboutin. It is inspired by the red sole of his shoes. Now I don’t have a pair to compare the color too but, the next time I’m over my BFF’s house I certainly will. The cap of the bottle is designed after the Ballerina Ultima. Which is the highest shoe Louboutin has ever designed. At first I told myself I wasn’t going to get this but, then I was in Sephora and the stand was just calling my name. Plus, VIB Rouges were getting 4x the points so I thought why not!
The bottle holds 0.4oz of product and retails for $50. Chanel nail polishes also hold 0.4oz of product but, they retail for $27.
The brush is on the smaller side and reminds me a bit of the Chanel or Essie brushes. I like smaller brushes and find them easier to use. The handle of the brush is definitely different and I tend to hold it closer to the bottom when using. It seems easier to maneuver that way. When I initially tested the polish it lasted five days no chipping. I found that amazing! It is also opaque in one coat but, I used two just because. In the light the color pulls a bit pink. I truly love the color and the formulation. If you are in the market for a new red polish I would totally suggest this.
Compared to D&G Fire, Marc Jacobs Lola, Sephora X Heart Rouge (for VIB Rouge’s only), Chanel Rouge Rubis, and Chanel Dragon. Rouge Louboutin and X Heart Rouge are an exact dupe.
Overall I really enjoy this polish and its lasting power. But, the price tag is outrageous.
Will you be picking up this polish ??
