All About the Global Launch of the New Christian Louboutin Fragrances!

Today marks the launch of Christian Louboutin’s very first foray into perfumes—three to be exact–and we were lucky enough to get them in our office to try them first! Spoiler: They’re incredible.

Time and money were no object to Louboutin, who had these scents brewing for three years until now. He went to four best perfume houses in the world and what they came up with is seriously incredible! It was so hard to pick favorites!

The first one, Bikini Questa Sera (“Bikini Tonight” in Italian) is supposed to evoke an intimate, beachy feeling. The notes of jasmine, tuberose, and sandalwood. The second, Tornade Blonde aka “Blonde Tornado” is about a women who leaves a trail of golden light behind her. Picture you’re at a bar and see a gorgeous women who disappears in moments, leaving you wondering, “who was she?” (as the Louboutin team explained). It has a mix of violet, roses, and cassis. Finally, Trouble in Heaven is about a woman who is at ease with being sexy – provokes and doesn’t mind being provocative. The scent is the strongest of the three, with notes of bergamot, amber, patchouli, and iris.

The bottle itself is a work of art – the clam shell is supposed to emulate a Caesar or Oscar award (and honestly, we want to display it on our shelves like one!). Louboutin actually enlisted an architect, Thomas Heatherwick (who also recently designed the new London double decker buses) to come up with a classic, strong design that really gives these scents a commanding identity. There’s a mix of complexity and simplicity in the design that we’d only expect from Louboutin.

The perfumes are decadent, sexy, and quite honestly, to die for. They are all launched today at 1320 dhs in the UAE and $275 each in the US. Which perfume describes you? Anyone out to buy one for themselves? Like all Louboutin beauty products, we think this is something you’ll use AND collect to display like works of art. The scents are so distinct, they’re perfect for layering as well. We’re seriously obsessed! Check them out at Louboutin stores, on Louboutin’s site, or online retailers like selfridges.com!

You’re going to want every single lipstick in this celebrity-inspired collection

I’m not going to lie guys, I was sooo nervous to meet Charlotte Tilbury for the first time when she came by the office recently! Tilbury has worked with some of the most famous faces like Kate Moss and Rihanna, and I’ve always been such a fan of her work! I got a chance to take a look at her new Hot Lips collection, and the colors are absolutely breathtaking. Housed in the line’s signature rose gold, lipsticks are named after and inspired by some of Tilbury’s own celebrity friends.

I love the unique shape of the bullets that has a slanted square tip to make it easy to apply right on the lips. Some of the office favorites are the taupey pink of Super Cindy (named after Cindy Crawford), a bold fuchsia (Electric Poppy, after Poppy Delevingne), the deep mulberry of Hel’s Bells after Helena Bonham-Carter, and a siren red (Carina’s Love, after Chinese actress Carina Lau). They run from sheer to more opaque variations and have a cream finish that helps keep lips soft. I’m having so much fun trying on the different shades. There is seriously something for everyone. Here are some swatches from the collection above – let me know what you think!

Should You Buy These Weird Brushes?

MAKEUP | PRODUCT REVIEW

By Huda Heidi Kattan

Hey My Loves! These makeup brushes from Artis Brush are definitely some of the more unique looking ones and cost a pretty penny, but do they work? I worked half my face with the Artis brushes and the other half with normal ones, so you could see the difference. Check out the video to see my full review and thoughts on the collection!

Have any of you tried them too? What did you think??
