Another new lipstick? The New Jimmy Choo Satin Lipsticks are not your everyday lipstick! Why would they be? To begin with, Jimmy Choo, famous for their high-end shoes and bags, are following in the footsteps of other high-end, expensive shoe and accessory brands. First, more than five years ago Christian Louboutin launched the first, ever, “What $90 for A Lipstick” lipstick. Furthermore even at $90, the lipsticks immediately sold out. Therefore, it was impossible to get one. Not too long ago, Hermes, you know, the “Birkin Bag Brand”, came out with their high end Rouge Hermes lipsticks. Another huge success. Now, it’s Jimmy Choo’s turn. Jimmy Choo recently launched their first makeup and fragrance, The Seduction Collection. Even more, the collection includes the New Jimmy Choo Satin Lipstick , High Gloss nail polish, and six new fragrances.
The Packaging For The Jimmy Choo Satin Lipsticks
First , By Now we all should recognize that packaging plays a huge part in whether or not the product is a luxury product, or the highest-end luxury product! Just wait til you see this packaging! For one thing, it knocks you over with highest-end luxury. In fact, this packaging is an experience. Also, if you love your makeup, like I do, we should all experience this kind of packaging at least once, if not twice, in our makeup endeavors.
The Outer Box
First the outer box is simple and elegant. Additionally, the box, a nude shade, jas gold writing on the front and the JC Logo. Actually, the box sort of reminds me of a shoe box. Maybe the reason is, the box is pretty large, has the shape of a shoe box, and has more depth, like a shoe box. Even more, when you feel the outer box, it feels weighty. Something awesome is inside that box!
The Dust Bag Pouch
Next, the lipstick comes out of the box, in a faux leather nude pouch. However, there is a large gold glitter orb popping out of the top of the pouch. Then, on the outside of the pouch is the JC logo and Jimmy Choo embossed in the front of the pouch. The reason for the pouch is to protect the lipstick case that is inside. Also, the pouch makes it easier for you to carry the lipstick case.
The Lipstick Case
Finally, pull the lipstick out of the pouch. Now, you can see that the glittering gold orb is the top of the lipstick case, Also, the case as shiny gold surrounding the top of the case, where the orb sits. Even more, the case, also a flesh shade, narrows down from the orb, to the bottom of the case. Next, there is a gold plate that goes from the top to the bottom of the case. Also, the gold plate narrows with the length of the tube. Jimmy Choo is engraved inside the gold plate. For some reason, the plastic case reminds me of the high heel of a shoe. Gorgeous!
Pull up on the orb, and the actual shiny gold lipstick case, pulls out. Twist the orb to the right, and the lipstick pops up. Then, twist the orb to the left and the lipstick goes back into the case. Last, the lipstick is embossed with a python design. For me, this is reminiscent of the python used on a shoe. Next, the Jimmy Choo logo appears again on the slanted tip of the lipstick. When you are finished with the lipstick, push the orb back down, into the case. Once you hear the loud click, you know that the lipstick is secure .
The Jimmy Choo Satin Lipstick Formula
To start, the silky, satin formula is hydrating. One reason is the formula includes Vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects the cells from free radicals.Even more, the formula includes a natural plant-based oil that hydrates and smooths your lips. As a result, the lipstick feels creamy and cushiony, and comfortable on your lips.
Remember that part of the Seduction Collection includes six new fragrances? Also included in the formula is the light scent of Irish Crush, one of the six new fragrances in the collection. The scent reminds me of the scent of lipstick. Once the lipstick is on your lips, you can’t smell the scent anymore. It really does smell like lipstick!
Additionally, the formula is highly pigmented for rich, one (swipe) and done, color payoff. Finally, long-wearing formula is cruelty free.
The Jimmy Choo Satin Lipstick Shades
There are ten Jimmy Choo Satin Lipstick shades in the Seduction Collection. I purchased five of the shades.
001 Red Carpet, a luminous red shade, has a satin finish.
Next, Coral Kiss, a vivid bright, orange-red shade, has a satin finish.
Fifth, Tender Pink, a soft pink shade, has a satin finish.
