Parisian powerhouses Balmain and L’Oréal have joined forces to create an exquisite capsule lipstick collection unlike any other and Barneys New York has the exclusive. Featuring 12 unique shades designed to flatter every color and skin tone, Balmain’s recent venture with L’Oréal Paris stems from creative director Olivier Rousteing’s mission to make his creations more accessible to the masses, with each lipstick retailing for only $14. Packaged in sleek, colorful tubes reminiscent of precious materials such as emerald-green malachite, blue lapis lazuli, and onyx, the collection features a vibrant shade range available in several different finishes, including matte and metallic. The shades are named after Rousteing’s model muses, including Lara Stone, Soo Joo Park, and Ysaunny Brito.
Evocative of Balmain’s accessories from the brand’s Fall 2017 runway, the Balmain x L’Oréal Paris capsule collection is scheduled to release a wearable lipstick jewel necklace in three cult shades later in the season. The timeless piece features a lipstick pendant embellished with a chic goldtone tassel at the bottom, perfect for touch-ups on the go.
