Following Christian Louboutin‘s first foray into beauty—a line of stiletto-shaped nail polish that debuted last August—the beloved shoe designer will be entering the lipstick arena in September with three different collections all featuring the signature red shade that’s become as synonymous with the brand as the shoes themselves.

The line will be pretty expansive—36 shades to be exact—but there’s a catch: Each one will clock it at $90. Ouch. Still, it’s less than snagging a pair of Pigalle pumps (silver lining, people.)

It’s also worth noting that within that $90 price tag, you get jewelry—sort of. Each lipstick can also be worn as a necklace, which isn’t a terrible idea considering this isn’t the tube you want swimming around the bottom of your handbag.

Plus, the gorgeous black and gold packaging is inspired by Babylonian architecture, Queen Nefertiti of Egypt, and the Art Deco movement, so it’s not like you’re wearing a tube of Wet n Wild around your neck.

If you want to get your hands on the goods, we suggest you start saving now—September’s right around the corner.
