Lipstick effect or anti-crisis diversification

Recently, shoe and clothing brands, mainly foreign so far, have diversified their product lines with the help of decorative cosmetics.

For example, shoe designer Christian Louboutin will release a collection of lipsticks under his brand Christian Louboutin by fall. The luxury brand, famous for its red soles, began to explore the beauty segment last year. The start was the collection of nail polishes. The line included more than thirty shades. Bottles 20 cm high with caps similar to hairpins were sold at a price of $ 50 per piece, and in stores underneath they allocated an immodest in size space.
