Rather excitingly Guerlain has expanded it’s iconic La Petite Robe Noire fragrance collection into the world of colour and it is absolutely wonderful!! The packaging is to die for and and the colours and textures are dreamy. Loving it! Here’s a little look at the new Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Colour collection.

So this new lipstick boast a 3-in-1 texture:

  • Buildable colour – 1, 2 0r 3 layers depending on the intensity required. The fine oils in the formula ensure easy application and layering
  • Scented colour – uses a fruity floral scent inspired by its fragrance heritage, plus fruity flavour to match
  • Ultra-shiny colour – pure and ultra luminous pigments coated with a high shine resin for a lacquer finish

I have 2 of the 20 shades – 003 Red Heels (obsessed with that name!) and 041 Sun-Twin-Set:

041 Sun-Twin-Set:

Because of their sheer texture they look pretty similar in these photos, but the 2nd one has more orange with soft gold shimmer.

It’s a beautiful texture and so lovely to wear. And the packaging!! I love Guerlain’s upside down heart and the clear shell gives a beautiful sneak peek of the lipstick’s shade. You twist the heart to propel the bullet. Love it.

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Shiny Nail Colour

This nail polish has been formulated to deliver a high shine finish. As you apply the colour, the solvent evaporates allowing what Guerlain call “a sweet gourmand fragrance with accents of red berries and petals”. I’m told the scent lasts for 24 hours and can be reactivated by adding a layer of top coat.

It is long lasting thanks to a special resin that imparts elasticity and suppleness.

I have she shade 003 Red Heels (yay I can match!):

How absolutely adorable is this little line up! Such a brilliant idea and so stunning set against the fragrance. You can have the most beautiful La Petite Robe Noire display and not only scent your skin but your lips and nails too. So French!

  1. Ugghh, I’m so upset I ld spit! Those lipids are so cool, but they’re ineligible for international delivery. I live in the U.S. so as much as I’d love to snag up Beige Lingerie and Pink Ballerinas it’s a no go :/.

  3. Ugghh, I’m so upset! I absolutely love the look of this collection and want two of the lip shades more than I can express! Unfortunately since they’re House of Fraser exclusive they can’t ship internationally to the US for some reason; I swear the UK gets the best releases! The L’Oreal Matte Glosses recently launched here and, aside from the formulation, they’re totally different. I’m tempted to move for the sole purpose of being able to snag all the good stuff haha.
