Christian Louboutin Holiday 2017 | Rouge Louboutin Metalissime Collection: Review and Swatches
Although it's only the first day of November, just about every beauty brand has already released its holiday collection for 2017. However, your wish list is not complete until you've feasted your eyes on the limited edition Rouge Louboutin Metalissime Collection from Christian Louboutin! Inspired by the heydays of disco and the glitz and glamor of holiday parties, this limited edition three-piece collection is bound to awe. I've got swatches and reviews of everything to share so to read on, click......

Christian Louboutin Holiday 2017 | Rouge Louboutin Metalissime Silky Satin Lip Color ($120 CAD):
Coated with a festive chrome red finish, the limited edition Rouge Louboutin Metalissime is a unique burnt red lipstick scattered with a subtle hint of metallic red shimmers. This is my first time trying a Christian Louboutin Lipstick so my expectations are set pretty high. Fortunately, Rouge Louboutin Metalissime does not disappoint. Despite having a thin and light texture, the lipstick is very nicely pigmented. The color feels virtually weightless on the lips yet it's very hydrating and comfortable. The Silky Satin name rings true as the finish has a natural, alluring sheen and in terms of wear, the formulation definitely lives up to its four-hour wear time, if not longer. Overall this is a fantastic lipstick. I love that although Louboutin went with a conventional color concept for the holidays, this red lipstick still ended up being very unique and special.

A truly stunning high-coverage liquid lip color, the Rouge Louboutin Metalissime Loubilaque is a deep true red scattered with a sophisticated red shimmer. The formulation is quite viscous but not at all sticky. The pigmentation is incredible and the finish is super shiny. I was a bit worried that the color might bleed but aside from a teeny tiny bit of blurring along the lip line, the Metalissime Loubilaque wore like a champ. Of course, since this is a gloss, the formulation is not smudge-proof so if you plan on doing lots of drinking and eating, you will have to touch up every once in a while.
Lastly, it's worth noting that similar to the Silky Satin Lipstick, the Rouge Louboutin Metalissime Loubilaque also comes in a special edition packaging. The body of the scale-covered tube is coated with a shiny red chrome finish while the tapered paddle doe-foot is attached to an ornate shiny gold cap adorned with studded details. The packaging feels a bit light as compared to the lipstick but the overall aesthetic is still super glamorous and luxurious.

Housed in a special chrome red bottle paired with a shiny gold handle inspired by calligraphy brushes, Rouge Louboutin Metalissime is a unique holiday red with a subtle shimmer/frost finish. The pigmentation is superb and the texture is rich and creamy. However, the polish does set very quickly so make sure to generously load up the brush before each coat to ensure an even and smooth coverage. The finish is a tad streaky if you examine it up-close but the color and packaging are truly stunning. I used two coats (with no top coat) for the swatches below.
