La Petite Robe Noire Lipstick by Guerlain | Review, photos, swatches

August 16, 2016

La Petite Robe Noire is one of Guerlain's most popular perfumes, and now the company is releasing a new lipstick line under the same name. Timing is everything when it comes to new launches, and as the Jewish answer to Valentine's Day is just a few days away, these lipsticks are now hitting the stands. I have never been a fan of forced celebrations of love, and am a strong believer of celebrating love each and every day of our lives. Gift sets and love letters? No thanks! So I hereby proclaim this day as a 'loving myself' kind of day, and a new lipstick beautifully packed is defiantly the way to celebrate. 

La Petite Robe Noire lipstick collection includes 20 new shades that were created by Oliver Echaudemaison, the brand's artistic director. The packaging is beautiful and takes inspiration from the original perfume bottle: sturdy plastic with a eye-catching heart detail that you have to twist for the lipstick to emerge. The lipsticks are made from a mixture of pure oils that give plenty of moisture to the lips and provide the option to either go for a sheer wash of colour or a stronger stroke of colour, all depending on the number of layers one chooses to aply. Don't expect a dominant lip look, as these colours are semi-sheer and have a glossy finish. On the other hand, you can expect an addictive feeling of softness to your lips. This also means that you will have to re-apply the lipstick after drinking or eating, and also from time to time throughout the day.

Lilac Belt 069* may seem a bit punk-rock at first glance, but on the lips this purple shade is very delicate with just the right amount of pink in it. Notes of the original perfume are embedded in the perfume, and they are easily recognizable as you open the lipstick's cap. After applying the lipstick these notes are detectable but fade away with time. I'm personally quite sensitive when it comes to smells but I wasn't bothered by this smell. On the other hand, I can't use L'Oreal lipsticks because of their perfume, so if you are very sensitive I would recommend trying the lipstick in store before you purchase it. Once purchased, you will be addicted! 2.8 grams | 161 NIS.
