I was browsing Sephora the other day when I chanced upon the new Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lipsticks ($46 SGD). I was completely over the moon because Guerlain is my favourite brand for lipsticks. Yes, I even like it more than Tom Ford!
Guerlain creates an absolutely essential and utterly irresistible La Petite Robe Noire Lipstick in deliciously shiny texture to dress up your style with colour!
Vibrant shades in an innovative texture:
– a light-weight texture reveals the lips’ natural radiance, leaving them supple and comfortable
– buildable coverage thanks to its thin film: one layer to offer a glimpse of the sensual texture of the lips, several for a more dense and sophisticated finish
– inspired by La Petite Robe Noire, the formula is deliciously perfumed and delicately flavoured for an unforgettable taste on your lips
– an ultra-shiny finish and pure & luminous colours thanks to a cocktail of fine oils and a selection of “POP” pigments coated in a specific shine-boosting resin.
I picked up the shade Cherry Cape 067 and received a sample of Red Heels 003 and Pink Tie 002. 🙂
Red Heels 003 is a red-orange shade with warm undertones.
Pink Tie 002 is a bright, medium pink with cool undertones.
Cherry Cape 067 is a berry pink shade with cool undertones.
The formula is divine. I tried it on in the store and it felt so comfortable on my lips. I was blown away. The lipstick felt very smooth and silky, giving a lovely shine to the lips. What more, my lips feel hydrated and super soft. The Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lipsticks range from light baby pinks to corals to plums to bold reds. I felt that the lighter colours are more sheer while darker colours are more pigmented. That being said, the darker colours leave a beautiful stain behind. Out of the three, my favourite would be Cherry Cape, which had rich color payoff and looked amazing on my fair skintone. As it’s a moisturising lipsticks, this lipstick doesn’t last the through a couple hours, hence, requires you to do touch ups. They have a lovely sweet scent which reminds me of candy and I found the scent incredibly pleasant.
However, one con about the liptick would be the packaging. I noticed the lipstick would move around in the tube, thus the packaging is not very secure in my opinion. I’m constantly worried that the lipstick would open up in my bag! *Yikes*
Overall, I loved the new La Petite Robe Noire lipsticks and truly, Guerlain never disappoints. If you want a lipstick that is sheerer than the Rouge Gs, but more pigmented than the KissKiss Roselip, the La Petite Robe Noire lipsticks are for you! With 20 shades in this collection, there are shades for everyone. 🙂 This collection is permanent so you can take your time to choose which shades to get! Sadly, I was told by the Guerlain SA that the nail polishes in the collection will not be released in Singapore.
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lipsticks are now available at Sephora and TANGS Orchard.
