I’m trying to be in a low-buy but I failed so hard when I saw the ads of this Guerlain La petite robe noire lipstick (full name: Guerlain La petite robe noire Deliciously shiny lip color). It looks gorgeous with all the juicy colors that will be perfect for this summer.
The packaging is influenced by Guerlain’s famous perfume bottle – La petite robe noire. For me, it looks more like the Dior Addict lipstick. It’s hard plastic so while it’s not that fancy and luxurious like usual Guerlain product, La petite robe noire is more modern, chic and travel friendly.
The texture of this lipstick is really soft, much like a tinted lip balm. It takes a few layers for the color to show off exactly like in the tube. I like the fact that Guerlain la petite robe noire is sheer but still buildable. This gives me a gorgeous, shiny finish without any shimmer and sparkle. It just looks delicious and bouncy!
Guerlain la petite robe noire doesn’t last on me so long (3-4 hours) and wears-off quite easily after eating. But this is the cost for perfect moisturizing lips, so I’m not complaining! If you’ve tried the Lancome Rouge in Love lipstick, I find these two are really similar in terms of texture, finish and wear time. However, Guearlain la petite robe noire lipstick less..wet and hold on to the lip a little longer.
I choose the color 021-Red Teddy, it’s a bright strawberry red if heavily applied and I LOVE IT! It can be also a natural pink-red with 1 layer.
The only thing I dislike in this lipstick is the smell of grandma’s cosmetics. It’s so powdery in a bad way. Other than that, I think it’s a good lippie for the summer and for the day I just don’t want to wear much makeup.
