The Hottest And Most Anticipated Beauty Releases Of 2013


Are you lusting after the perfect pair of sky-high Louboutin heels? Starting this year, you’ll have the opportunity to lust after the matching makeup as well. Christian Louboutin is diving into the world of makeup with a luxury cosmetics line called Christian Louboutin Beauté.

Inspired by Queen Nefertiti and her 3,300 year old bust at the Berlin Neues Museum, the Louboutin makeup line will ”mirror the quality of the shoes, of the bags, of all the DNA of the brand.” as the designer put it himself. Louboutin also added that ”Beauty products also have to do with empowering women. That’s very much the job of the shoes I’m designing.”

The collection will be available towards the end of the year and for creating it, Louboutin will team up with Battalure Beauty.


Another designer dabbling in the makeup world for the first time by debuting his own line, is Marc Jacobs.

”I see makeup, fragrance — everything, really — as an opportunity. The idea of choosing a color for your lip, or an eyeliner — it’s just such a delight. The ritual of waking up and making those choices is something people really enjoy. I love the opportunity, wherever there is one, to adorn, to decorate, to scent, to dress. That’s what fashion’s all about. It’s not necessary, it’s something you want.”, says the designer.

Not many details about the new Marc Jacobs makeup line have been yet made public, but what is certain at this point is that the line will be available come fall in Sephora stores.


Another beauty launch that has fashionistas everywhere going crazy in anticipation is the limited edition Lancôme by Alber Elbaz beauty line, which will be released on June 15th.

His sense of luxury, his vision of femininity and that hint of audacity resonate perfectly with the new values of the Maison Lancôme.”, declared Youcef Nabi, president of Lancôme International, for WWD. ”We are extremely proud and happy that, with us, he is set to channel his universe in the world of makeup for the very first time.”
