When it comes to fashion there’s one piece every girl should have in her closet: The Little Black Dress … or as Guerlain would say «La Petite Robe Noire». And what’s the perfect match for such a dress? Lipsticks like the new «La Petite Robe Noire» ones by Guerlain of course!
The recently launched range consists of 20 shades, of which I got «064 Pink Bangle» and «070 Plum-Brella». Each lipstick contains 2,8g and costs about 29,99 Euro/39.90 Fr.
La Petite Robe Noire Lipsticks: Design & Packaging
If you’re familiar with the Guerlain «La Petite Robe Noire» perfumes you’ve probably noticed that the lipsticks reference the Guerlain perfume bottles with the heart shaped bottle cap. I really love the shape of the packaging, but I’m a little split when it comes to the material. I somehow wish Guerlain would have chosen something more high-grade …
La Petite Robe Noire Lipsticks: Shiny & Creamy
The Guerlain lipsticks have a light and creamy (sort of wet) texture, which melts on to the lips effortlessly and adds both shine and color. The pigmentation is more on the sheer side. If you want a more intense look you can layer the lipstick and build it up the color. As with most sheer and creamy lipsticks they’re not too long-lasting. On my lips they wear for about 2 hours feeling comfortable and even a little hydrating.
The lipsticks themselves have a sweet, sort of fruity fragrance, which I actually like quite well. If you’re not a fan of scented lipsticks, this might me a little drawback.
