Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lipsticks (145.00 Lei / £21.50 / €29.50 for 2.8 g / 0.09 oz) have this amazing scented fruity floral formula which is also sweet to the taste. Most of them have a buildable color coverage from sheer to almost opaque for some colors. I’m sure you will find your favorite red or coral shade in this collection as there are some pretty colors with different undertones for every skin color. I for instance, I’m not very keen on wearing a red lip but I really enjoyed wearing Red Teddy shade which looks beautiful on light skin tones. I prefer lip colors with cool undertones and usually I keep away from corals, but for those who are into this warm summery shade, I would say Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire lipsticks are really worth the investment.
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire (003) Red Heels Lipstick is a bright reddish coral with warm undertones and a glossy finish without shimmer. It glides smoothly onto the lips delivering an almost opaque color with a beautiful glossiness which makes lips appear fuller. It doesn’t sink into lip lines, on the contrary it gives lips a luminous and fresh effect. It is a beautiful color that will complement any skin tone. I had about 7 hours wear with this formula and I felt my lips smooth and hydrated throughout the entire time. When the color wore away it left an even stain on my lips.
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire (021) Red Teddy Lipstick is a light reddish-pink with a natural shine. This is exactly my type of red, that gives me such a pleasure wearing it. It looks quite sheer applied in one coat but totally buildable up to a medium opacity in a couple of layers. I absolutely love that is a more natural red, not the kind that is very bright and edgy so I can wear it on any moment of the day. The natural glossiness it makes my lips appear fresh, plumped and seductive with a touch of innocence. The formula glides easily across the lips, without sinking into lip lines and it keeps my lips nourished from beginning to end. Like most lipsticks from this collection, Guerlain Red Teddy stained on my lips for a little longer than 6 hours and left me with a light even stain afterwards.
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire (041) Sun-Twin-Set Lipstick is a light orange-coral with warm undertones, very fine gold shimmer and natural shiny finish. This is a gorgeous shade for summer. It’s somewhere in the middle between bright and light, so quite a nice option for every skin tone and I’d bet it would look amazing on tan skin as well. It gives lips a luminous satiny finish due to its fine gold shimmering particles. I had 6 hours wear with this formula and my lips felt smooth and soft the entire time. This color also stained a bit.
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire (042) Fire Bow Lipstick is a bright orange with warm undertones and a pearl golden satin finish. This is a true orange, very bright and summer appropriate. In a few layers it can easily look opaque on the lips with a luminous satin finish. Lips appear fresh, plumped and will definitely get you noticed. The formula applies easily on the lips, it feels comfortable and keeps my lips smooth and hydrated. I had about 6 hours wear with this color and I got the same light even stain afterwards.
