Presenting the long-wearing lip essential in a chic black casing.

There’s nothing quite as swank as whipping a Serge Lutens Lipstick out of your bag. The chic hexagonal lacquer packaging encourages public application, and the formula is beyond exquisite. With its prism-shaped bullet, the creamy lipstick glides on like butter and makes it easy to define and contour the lip. Think of it as the little black dress of lipstick—it will never go out of style.


“What a perfect lipstick, and such a sensory experience from start to finish. The packaging, the application, the color, and the wear power are all top notch.”—Kirin Bhatty, makeup artist

“These are so chic. They come in a beautiful demi-matte formulation and the case is a miniature, efficient, weighted metal hexagon that encourages public application.”—Jeffrey Baum, makeup artist

“These lipsticks feel so good. The formula is like nothing I’ve ever tried. The shades are beautiful and the lipstick is rich, creamy, lightweight, long lasting, and highly pigmented.”—Carola Gonzalez, makeup artist

“The pigment is beautiful and the colors are very wearable.”—Lottie, makeup artist
