While Balmain clothes and accessories may be a little outside of most people's price range (OK, a lot outside), there's a new way to get in on the ultra-cool line without the high-fashion price tag. The shades in the Balmain x L’Oréal Paris lipstick collection have officially been revealed, and they're every bit as chic as you'd imagine.
Balmain creative director (and noted Kardashian comrade — er, komrade) Olivier Rousteing revealed the 12 "couture shades" on his Instagram, reminding everyone that "basic" isn't a word in his vocabulary.
While there are a couple of updated classic lipstick colors, like a muted rosy hue and a deep scarlet shade, there's also no shortage of fearless colors to choose from. Think a bold, deep blue, a couple of eye-popping purples, a rusty orange, and, in true #BalmainArmy form, a military-inspired olive green.
The Color Riche collection will hit lorealparisusa.com on Sept. 20, according to Allure. And act fast, because they won't be around forever (and considering how quickly designer collabs like these are swept up, they likely won't last long, either).
The tagline for the collection is "united, we are all invincible," which is exactly how a fabulous lipstick (like one of these) should make you feel.
Naturally, Rousteing enlisted the crème de la crème of models, including Doutzen Kroes, Cindy Bruna, and Maria Borges, to show off the shades.
And while we can't all put on lipstick like a model, we sure can feel like one with shades this fashion-forward.
"Because we are all worth it," as Rousteing writes in his captions.
Sept. 20 can't come soon enough!
