Christian Louboutin {Rouge Louboutin}

Christian Louboutin just released his first nail polish, Rouge Louboutin.  It is inspired by the red sole of his shoes.  Now I don't have a pair to compare the color too but, the next time I'm over my BFF's house I certainly will.  The cap of the bottle is designed after the Ballerina Ultima.  Which is the highest shoe Louboutin has ever designed.  At first I told myself I wasn't going to get this but, then I was in Sephora and the stand was just calling my name.  Plus, VIB Rouges were getting 4x the points so I thought why not!  

The bottle holds 0.4oz of product and retails for $50.  Chanel nail polishes also hold 0.4oz of product but, they retail for $27.  

The brush is on the smaller side and reminds me a bit of the Chanel or Essie brushes.  I like smaller brushes and find them easier to use.  The handle of the brush is definitely different and I tend to hold it closer to the bottom when using.  It seems easier to maneuver that way.  When I initially tested the polish it lasted five days no chipping.  I found that amazing!  It is also opaque in one coat but, I used two just because.  In the light the color pulls a bit pink.  I truly love the color and the formulation.  If you are in the market for a new red polish I would totally suggest this.  

Compared to D&G Fire, Marc Jacobs Lola, Sephora X Heart Rouge (for VIB Rouge's only), Chanel Rouge Rubis, and Chanel Dragon.  Rouge Louboutin and X Heart Rouge are an exact dupe.  

Overall I really enjoy this polish and its lasting power.  But, the price tag is outrageous.  

Will you be picking up this polish ??
