Luxurious French beauty brand La Bouche Rouge has officially arrived in New Zealand for the first time

Literally translating to ‘red lips’ in French, La Bouche Rouge is a sumptuous, luxurious Parisian makeup brand that produces environmentally-responsible, natural formulas in refillable, recyclable, customisable cases — free from plastic. Since its launch in 2017, La Bouche Rouge has cemented its reputation via a number of high-profile collaborations with renowned designers and personalities (from The Attico to Rosie Huntington-Whitely) and now, the brand’s globally sought-after collections are available in New Zealand for the first time, thanks to luxury department store, Faradays.

As the exclusive Australasian stockist of this exceptional brand, Faradays will now have a dedicated La Bouche Rouge beauty bar in its store, at which customers can experience the comprehensive range by booking make-up appointments (redeemable entirely on product). Each of La Bouche Rouge’s innovative, serum-infused makeup formulas is free from petrochemicals, toxins, plastic powder, micro-plastics, silicones, beeswax or preservatives. They are as clean as they are luxurious, and as effective as they are good for the skin.

Beyond the makeup alone, La Bouche Rouge’s refillable, fine leather cases (handmade using high-quality upcycled materials) offer a more personal touch that will please any lovers of considered design. In fact, customers can choose their case just like they choose their product, and will even be able to have their new La Bouche Rouge purchase personalised via Faradays’ very own monogramming machine (set to arrive in-store soon).
