L’Oréal Paris and Balmain Paris just unveiled the Nico Bustos-lensed advertising campaign for their upcoming capsule collection of lipsticks.

Of course the campaign embodies the “Balmain army” attitude of the brand: the house’s creative director Olivier Rousteing is photo’d storming across a Paris rooftop at dawn — the Eiffel Tower seen on the horizon — accompanied by 12 models of different origins and backgrounds including Lara Stone, Neelam Gill and Alexina Graham. They each sport a different Balmain ensemble offset by lipsticks from the line.

According to a joint statement released by the brands on Monday, the casting is meant to reflect “three tribes of L’Oréal Paris and Balmain Paris femininity,” much like the line’s Rock, Couture and Glamazon themes, each housing four shades designed to suit a range of complexions and send “a message of beauty in diversity and female empowerment.”

Ysaunny Brito, Soo Joo Park, Doutzen Kroes model what is termed as the star shades from each of the groups. The 12 lipsticks stand in line at the bottom of the image, topped with the tagline, “United, We are Invincible.”

As reported, the line — due to launch in early September in select points of sale where L’Oréal Paris is already carried — marks the first foray into beauty for Rousteing who oversaw the creative direction of the new hues, packaging design and ad campaign.
