Christian Louboutin gained his inspiration for this line from the Egyptian queen, Nefertiti. The lipsticks are packaged in a sleek gold and/or black bullet tube with crown caps, attached with a small ribbon so that it may be worn as a necklace.  “An object that embellishes the lips—the beacon of sensuality and organ of communication—has to be fairly amazing. The object should inspire a beautiful gesture. At the same time, it should be intimate and nonchalant, almost insouciant. I imagined the scales of a mermaid’s tail, dressed with what could have been a vial, filled with an elixir, an essence oozing strength and beauty,” says Louboutin.
