    From stilettos to stiletto nails to seriously lustrous lips--Christian Louboutin's got you covered.

    The iconic red-bottomed heel designer is making his first foray into lip care with a brand new lipstick line. A tube of lipstick from his collection will set you back a cool $90 (nope, we didn't erroneously add that "0"). But then, Louboutin's leg-lengthening heels don't come cheap, and his nail polish retailed for $50 a color (save for the $675 holiday edition "Starlight" bottle, which was swathed in 1,500 Strass crystals). 

    Louboutin debuted his first nail polish collection in 2014, with a sleek bottle design mimicking a spiked heel. The designer's lipstick tubes, in a similar thread, are striking--slim gold bullets offering one of three different finishes (for the gal who likes her pick of matte, sheer and satiny full-coverage textures). Silky Satin features 20 shades in the line, while Velvet Matte and Sheer Voile feature nine shades each.

    The Louboutin lipstick shades--a clear soon-to-be cult favorite--will be available at Saks stores in September.
