Famed shoe designer Christian Louboutin’s beauty portfolio is set to expand with the introduction of the new Les Yeux Noirs makeup collection.

Inspired by the traditional Indian dance Kathakali, the four-part eye collection includes a mascara, pencil eyeliner, liquid liner and brow definer to enhance the feature Louboutin considers most expressive. “I was always fascinated by how much the eyes see,” the maestro explained. “The eyes have a life. Makeup only accentuates what you want to reveal.”

One of our favourite products is the liquid liner, which comes in three shades: black, the signature Louboutin red, and a kohl blue. They are intensely pigmented, longwearing, glossy finish ink liners with a long and flexible tip. Like the brand’s iconic nail polish bottles, the eyeliner will be packaged with a calligraphy-inspired cap that looks similar to a stiletto heel.

Another notable product is the mascara, which will come in black and burgundy and features Art Deco and Egyptian-inspired brass packaging with a shiny black spiked cap.

The entire Christian Louboutin Les Yeux Noirs Collection is available on christianlouboutin.com.
