Christian Louboutin expands his opus of Eye Amplifiers, introducing Tape à l'Oeil Eye Colour collection. Enthused by and named after women who turn heads, this pigment-rich Eye Colour range is striking in tone and finish. The collection is designed to stun. "Tape à l'oeil means eye-catching. It is a woman who exposes her femininity so that no one can miss her," describes the designer.
Christian Louboutin's Eye Colours enable a woman to enhance her eyes with a variety of looks to reveal or conceal her attitudes and intentions.
The Maison introduces Eye Colour in two statement-making finishes matte nude and metallic. Both collections launch in six shades for a total of twelve eye colours.
"To me, eye colour is parure pour les yeux. It is jewelry for the eyes," says Christian. A woman can darken, lighten, perfect or embellish her gaze with a brush stroke of shadow on lids. She is the author of her own story."
The unveiling of Eye Colour enriches the designer's Eye Amplifiers collection, enabling women to create a complete Christian Louboutin eye look. Adorn lids with new Tape à L'Oeil Eye Colour, define or contour eyes with Oeil Velours and Oeil Vinyle, coat lashes in Les Yeux Noirs, and perfect brows with Brow Definer.
The formulas are encased in a clear vial adorned with a gold fluted shell that references Byzantine and Art Déco motifs, two époques that Christian often revisits in his work. This objet d'art is topped with a slender weighted cap that is reminiscent of Christian's iconic Nail Colour design. Similar to a calligraphy brush, the cap rests comfortably in the hand, ensuring a controlled and precise application experience. Its innovative, short and dense bristle brush allows for optimal product pick-up, precise placement, and optimal painting and blending of the formula for the most artistic expression.
