Further proof that Christian Louboutin knows the way to a woman's heart: He's launching a luxury beauty range!

After inking a deal with Batallure Beauty LLC, the footwear designer is set to break into the beauty category with the Fall 2013 launch of Christian Louboutin Beauté, Women's Wear Daily reports.

The range will be sold globally, though Louboutin is coy about precisely which products he'll be offering, teasing only that they'll be “very constructed, quite different, and unexpected."

The king of red soles does, however, reveal that his ultimate beauty icon is the 3,300-year-old Nefertiti. Could some CL kohl liner be in the works?

A branded "Louboutin Manicure"—in which stars like Adele have the underside of their fingernails painted red—is also "in the air," while scarlet lipsticks are also a safe bet.

“[The beauty range] has to mirror the quality of the shoes, of the bags, of all the DNA of the brand," adds Louboutin. "Beauty products also have to do with empowering women. That’s very much the job of the shoes I’m designing.”

The only downside? Having to wait a year and a half for these goodies to hit beauty counters. Where's that time machine when you need one?
