I’m so excited today as I have some stunning new products from one of my favourite luxury brands to share with you! Guerlain have just launched their La Petite Robe Noire Collection, which includes a range of 20 lipsticks and 8 nail polishes – and the packaging is GORGEOUS.
The press release tells a sweet little story of Guerlain’s character, La Petite Robe Noire…
‘Alone in front of her wardrobe, La Petite Robe Noire is deep in thought. Despite all the wonderful dresses created for her by Thierry Wasser, she lacks that je-ne-sais-quoi that would highlight her femininity, the little added extra that would reveal her true personality: mischievous, Parisian, spectacular, seductive, elusive and yet with a distinctive presence…’
‘Suddenly, she has a flash of inspiration. It’s so obvious! What she needs is, of course… colour!’
La Petite Robe Noire then rushes to see Olivier Echaudemaison, Guerlain Make-Up Creative Director, and inspired by her energy, he creates the new La Petite Robe Noire collection…
So, what are these lipsticks all about? Well the Petite Robe Noire collection offers easily buildable colour in a massive range of shades, from one swipe for a sheer veil of colour, to three or more if you wish for more intensity. The finish is is very balmy and moisturising, with a light fruity floral scent inspired by the heart notes of La Petite Robe Noire’s fragrance.
The packaging is so pretty, and very unique. The outer casing of the lipstick is made of a clear plastic with a pretty upside down heart on top – again inspired by the original Petite Robe Noire bottle. You can see through this to the inner casing, as well as being able to see the colour of the lipstick underneath.
There are 20 lipstick shades available, and I have 001 My First Lipstick – giving a beautiful veil of shimmer, it reveals the natural colour of the lips to deliver a tailor-made twist. And 020 Poppy Cap is a bright and summery orange – coral shade.
My First Lipstick gives the most beautiful light sheen to the lips, with an added hint of sparkle, and Poppy Cap, though appearing opaque in the tube, comes out fairly sheer though buildble in colour. Both have a wonderfully creamy, balmy texture that my dry lips just love – as well as a light fragrance which is no where near as strong as I was expecting. I’ve worn these a couple of times now and I can’t get enough of them – I can’t wait to try the nail polishes out too!
I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
