Lipsticks got a lot more luxurious – Hermes to launch a beauty line inspired by their Birkin bags


In its 180-year plus history, luxury brand – Hermes has never once stepped foot in the beauty line. However, in a first (and a highly anticipated) move of the sorts, the marquee has recently announced plans to launch a collection of lipsticks inspired by its legendary Birkin bag. Yes, that’s right!


Christened as Rouge Hermes, the ensemble features 24 shades of lip magic in two different finishes – Matte and Satin. The former is inspired by the Birkin with the texture supposedly imitating the bag’s soft leather whereas the satin formula takes stimulus from the brand’s classic silk scarves.

Each of the lipsticks is enriched with a refreshing scent created by the brand’s perfumer Christine Nagel and come packaged in plastic-free metal hardware. In further aiding sustainability, the beauty product will be offered with a refill system that allows one to stock up their favorite shade. While a lipstick refill will set connoisseurs back by a cool $42, a brand-new Hermes lipstick can be purchased for $67.
