Christian Louboutin Zoulou Velvet Matte Lipstick Review

Brown is definitely in this season in the lipstick world. Finding the right shade can be tricky to say the least. I found myself wondering around Selfridges (as per usual) a few weeks ago and came across the Christian Louboutin stand. I remember when there lipsticks were first launched and how stunning they looked. I desperately wanted one until I found out they were an incredibly steep £65 each.

One beautiful shade caught my attention immediately (not to say I didn't try or swatch the rest of them) which was Zoulou.

The Christian Louboutin Zoulou Velvet Matte Lipstick is phenomenal. The packaging is sensational. I have never seen such a pretty lipstick. It's beautiful gold packaging is iconic and I can only imagine what a necklace it would make (only kidding) but that is just how breath taking it looks.


Zoulou is Louboutin's most popular shade and it is easy to see why. It's a beautiful rosy brown which
 compliments a variety of skin tones. It is very versatile and wearable day and night. This beautiful shade definitely draws attention yet never looks over the top. 

I am totally in love with the texture - it glides on so easily and gives an amazing creamy matte finish.

Still hung up on the heavy price tag I did another round of Selfridges determined to find a cheaper dupe but alas I could not find such a creamy or lustrous brown so it was then I decided I must have it. I have to say I have used it so much in the last few weeks and take any opportunity to show off the ornate packing to my friends. It definitely is a statement piece.

I am truly in love with this product but I have to say as it is a very creamy texture I find it doesn't last a meal which is slightly disappointing. I think I will persevere to find a dupe in the future as I'm not sure I could justify repurchasing this beauty! Having said that, I do use it a LOT currently and is definitely my go-to everyday lipstick.

Overall, I do definitely recommend this lipstick as a high end treat and definitely would make a great gift, if you could bear to part with it.

Have any of your lucky girls tried this lipstick in this shade or another? Would you repurchase?
