Christian Louboutin to launch beauty line

The shoemaker's line will hit the shelves next year

Can Louboutin have the same impact on the beauty industry as he's had on fashion with his red-soled shoes?

The designer, whose shoes are worn by the world's most glamorous stars, has confirmed to fashion site WWD that he is collaborating with Batallure Beauty LLC to create a yet unspecified beauty line.

Louboutin's new venture will be unveiled in 2013.
