Back in May L'oreal announced that we would soon be able to afford a piece of Balmain for our very own. L'oreal joined together with Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing to create a collection of lipsticks and #CoutureTribe was born.
The collection consists of blues, purples a glittery green as well nude and the classic red. Olivier Rousteing has commented that “The reason we made them like this is because we wanted to talk to so many women of all ages, all colours and all backgrounds. Different social groups, you know? It’s combining the Balmain Army and the L’Oréal Paris family".
All 12 lipsticks are a matte finish and in L'oreal's Color Riche lipstick formula. Each are also in their own 'Tribe':
#TribeRock (blue packaging):
#TribeCouture (black packaging):
#TribeGlamazone (green packaging):
The stand out shades for me have got to be Glamazone, Confidence and Confession.
The L'oreal x Balmain collection will be available in the UK from 01 September at Harvey Nichols which coincides with Paris Fashion week, priced £12.99 each. They will then be available nationwide from 25 September.
