Loubichrome I

Christian Louboutin Loubichrome I Nail Colour ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bright lemony chartreuse–it only has a touch of green–paired with fine threads of metallic pearl. It had nearly opaque coverage after two coats, and the consistency was smooth, spreadable without pooling along the edges of my nails, and went on fairly evenly. Of the three, this shade was the only one that could have applied better. It wore well for seven days on me with minor tip wear.

The limited edition bottles and shades are inspired by Specchio, which is a “laminated leather with a mirror-like quality.” The polishes themselves are not holographic; they are merely chrome-like with respect to the finish–so high shine, fine shimmer that gives them a more metallic look overall. I think the packaging holds the most allure, as the handles have the signature, stiletto handle with a metallic, rainbow finish–they are stunning and look even better in person than the effect looks in press photos. All three shades from the miniature launch applied fairly well to well, were mostly opaque to opaque in pigmentation, and lasted a full week on me.

For some reason, I’ve found the $30 price point–even for a mini–more palatable than the $50 price point for a full-sized bottle; perhaps it’s because I’ve never come close to finishing a bottle of polish… Nonetheless, keep that in mind as they are miniature (0.20 fl. oz.) and I’m sure there are dupes across many brands for those more interested in the color than the packaging.

Loubichrome II

Christian Louboutin Loubichrome II Nail Colour ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a slightly muted, medium coppery red with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer finish. The consistency was smooth, not too thick or too thin, and was easy to work with on the nail. It was opaque after two coats, though one coat was almost enough. It dried down to a naturally high-shine finish, though a top coat would certainly give it a plusher and glossier look. I noticed more than minor tip wear after seven days of wear.

Loubichrome III

Christian Louboutin Loubichrome III Nail Colour ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark plummy purple with warmer pink undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented–nearly opaque in a single coat–and applied with smooth, even coverage and no visible brush strokes. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, so the polish flowed well across the nail without pooling along the edges. It lasted for seven days on me before showing more than minor tip wear.

Pami

Oooh, I love III! I love the bottle/packaging, and that’s what you’re really paying for, not the polish. $30 for a trinket is a lot more palatable than $50, and I’m glad to see the polish got such a good review. If a luxury branded company is selling products at luxury pricing, they should be expected to have excellent formulas. Still, I don’t know if I’d be able to actually use the polish, as I would probably want to keep it pristine, and I already have Zoya Mason, which is a very close dupe.

Christine

I agree, Pami, from my experience it doesn’t wear or apply any better than a number of other formulas (perhaps if you’re someone who has struggled to find a great brand, and this one works, then you’d be paying for formula!). If you’ve ever wanted to try the formula or get one for packaging, the minis are a much nicer way to go (unless you expect to finish the bottle!).

Michele @Binxcat4ever

Admission: I wanted you to hate these. Like you, I find the price tag more palatable even though I know they’re minis. I’ve gone pretty pricey on polish before but couldn’t talk myself into $50 for one. I never finish polish either – so would rather spend $30 knowing it will never get finished. I doubt the citrusy shade would suit me but the red and the purple/pink look lovely. And I love the bottle design so I can make the argument it is a collector’s item since I do collect cosmetic packaging….Yup, got that wrapped up nicely

How Much Do Christian Louboutin Shoes Cost – Prices

Ballpark Estimate: $500 to $2,000+

If you’ve ever tried on a pair of Christian Louboutins, you know first-hand how beautiful the graceful, sculpted lines of the elegant shoes make your legs and feet look and feel. And many Louboutin devotees swear that the signature sky-high heels are not only lovely to look at but much more comfortable, too, than they appear.

An Array of Options

If you are in the market for Christian Louboutin shoes, there are so many elegant options from which to choose. Some of the most popular styles include classic pumps in smooth or patent leather with very high, thin heels. Many of them feature very stylized toe shapes with a slight platform lift for the ultimate in excellence. You can also find them with Mary Jane straps or sling back detailing in a rainbow of rich colors and textures. Or, if you prefer something more unique, you can also find delicate sandals crafted of crepe “petals” in the palest shade of pink, or with leather thongs that tie part-way up your leg, and boots layered in the finest rows of soft fringe. Some of the dressiest elegant satin pumps also feature sparkling rhinestone bands layered along the raised sole and heel. In addition, you can find unusual and beautiful chains, studs, bows and feather accents.

Reaching for New Heights

Many Louboutin shoes are extraordinarily high (think 4 to 6 inches), making walking in them quite a “feat”. . . or at least quite a strain on your feet. Recently, the designer even added an 8-inch heeled bootie to his range, which were touted as the “world’s highest shoes,” but critics point out that actually, other similarly high options have existed throughout the centuries, and have in fact been popular with professional strippers for many years. Some Louboutin fans do point out that the construction of Louboutin shoes, though, are made to make them easier to wear and to minimize strain on the wearer’s back.

The Making of a Legend

Christian Louboutin was born in France in 1963 and is said to have become obsessed with the silhouette of the stiletto heel at a young age. He credits watching Paris show girls in their fancy costumes and footwear for fueling this passion. He ultimately left school to pursue this interest, studying design and also traveling broadly. He landed an apprenticeship with famed shoemaker Roger Vivier, who is known for creating the stiletto heel and who taught Louboutin the craft of “building” a shoe. Louboutin also learned some of his design tricks under the tutorage of Chanel and Yves St Laurent, taking what he learned in these and other prestigious settings to eventually start his own brand. He opened his first boutique in Paris and his career took off from there.

Seeing Red

While there are many beautiful shoes on the market today, you can instantly tell genuine Louboutins apart from other fine footwear by the dramatic red sole featured on each pair. All Louboutins have this tell-tale sign so when you wear a pair, others “in the know” will recognize that you, too, have exquisite taste, as well as enough money to afford the high price tag these luxurious shoes command.

Rumor has it that Louboutin came up with the signature red sole right before his first fashion show. According to fashion buffs, they say as he was getting ready to display his collection of shoes, he felt something was missing. He noticed one of his assistants painting her nails with red Chanel nail polish and grabbed the bottle and painted the red polish on the sole of each pair. The idea was a hit and he liked the effect so much that this became standard on his shoes from there.

While other manufacturers have since copied this design element, Louboutin is attempting to patent this detail as his trademark sole, although some critics don’t think his efforts while be successful. One fashion historian even points out that Louboutin didn’t actually pioneer this idea; red heels and sole edges were actually in vogue back in the 17th century among the upper class.

Celebrity Lineup

Many celebrities and fashionistas are die-hard Christian Louboutin fans. You will find some of the most popular actresses wearing his red-soled shoes in movies, on television shows, in music videos and in magazine photo spreads. They are also out in full force on the red carpet and at other special events. Princess Caroline of Monaco was one of his earliest, and most regal, clients. Among the many other well-known names that regularly are seen in Louboutins are Oprah Winfrey, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker and Angelina Jolie.

Where to Buy

There are currently a handful of exclusive Christian Louboutin boutiques in the United States, including two in New York. The famed footwear designer is also rumored to have several new locations planned to open in the near future. You can visit his very whimsical website and view the current collections and do a search for a store in your area. You can also shop for Louboutin shoes in many of the finest department stores, such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys New York and Neiman Marcus.

What It Costs

The appeal of Louboutins comes at a steep price. The least expensive styles start in the $500 to $700 range. You can find strappy sandals (flat or with the architectural heels), and a wide array of leather pumps and wedge styles at this price point. Or, in the $800 to $1,000 range there are gladiator sandals, peep-toe pumps and a variety of patent leather and suede designs. You can also find very stylized styles embellished with crepe “feathers” for about $1,000.

If you have more money to spend, you can find a variety of exquisite options that go on up to about $2,000. At this high end, there is an elegant display of pumps, sandals and boots crafted from the highest quality python, rich satin, metallic and unusual suede designs. In addition, a Louboutin pump made of the finest alligator skin available at Barneys costs a shocking $4,645.

Finally, with shoes this amazing, you may want a Louboutin purse to match. A sculptural satin evening clutch available at Neiman Marcus is $795, while a bigger Louboutin handbag at the same store costs $1,995 and is perfect for everyday use.

So you can expect to pay between $500 and $2,000 to walk in Louboutin’s footsteps (literally), although higher options do exist.

Custom Made

Of course if money is unlimited, there is one other option to consider: ordering custom-made Louboutins to perfectly fit your style and your foot. The price for this decadence ranges from $3,000 to $5,000, depending on what you select.

Style at Any Size

The fashion press reports that Louboutin’s popularity these days is very wide spread. In fact, the footwear designer was recently tapped to design a pair of hot pink pumps for Mattel Inc.’s popular Barbie doll, who will be having a runway show to celebrate her 50th birthday.

Final Note

If you can’t afford your own pair of Louboutin pumps, there is one other way to achieve the elegant look: with a “Louboutin Manicure.” Many nail salons are copying the signature Louboutin look by combining black nail polish with the back-side of the nail painted bright red.
