Guerlain beauty, in my mind, is known for two things – their amazing La Petite Robe Noire – “the little black dress” – perfumes and their incredible lipsticks that come in the most beautiful packaging.
Guerlain may know these two are their winners as well, as I recently attended a cozy launch event for their new lipstick release – where they merged the two of their most popular beauty products.
The result is the new Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire lipstick, a collection of sheer-to-bold, buildable coverage lipsticks to go with your Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire perfume, and of course, your actual little black dress. They’ve now completed your outfit! What’s more, the La Petite Robe Noire lipsticks come scented with their famous perfume (a beautiful cherry and tea mix) making every swipe on your lips feel glamorous and of course, tres chic!
This is my first Guerlain lipstick I believe, and wow – talk about a luxury lipstick. The coverage as I mentioned is sheer compared to most lipsticks, but that just means it gives a more plump look to your lips, rather than just a wash of color all over. (Which I prefer usually, it’s very rare I will do a full on, bold lip.)
I like to apply two “coats” of Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire lipstick when I really want a stronger color, and only one coat when it’s a natural, everyday look. (They say it’s a 3 step build able, though: 1 coat for sheer, 2 for medium, and 3 coats for a real intense, bold look.) The collection comes with the most gorgeous colors too – pinks, reds and corals – and it was hard for me to pick a favorite. The collection also features the very interesting “black lipstick”, which is actually comes out as a colorless lip balm.
For the perfume itself, I actually know the La Petite Robe Noire scents very well – I have 2 of my own, and named one of them as one of the Top 10 French Perfume for Women.
The scents all have that burst of cherry soda freshness, but are are still different enough to warrant buying a few in your collection. The latest, Fraiche, is of course, the freshest of the lot and great for the day – it’s still very glamorous and sparkly, but has that added citrus freshness that is very suitable in Singapore’s sunny weather.
Summer is coming, and I don’t know about you, but that mean summer parties, tons of birthdays, weddings, and more – if you’re wearing a little black dress this season (who isn’t, really?), I definitely recommend checking out the new La Petite Robe Noire lipsticks. Again, they’re sweet, buildable colors, so there’s no where you won’t wear the lipsticks. Or if you’re looking for a new scent, check out their La Petite Robe Noire perfumes as well. (Actually, while you’re at Guerlain counters, try both!)
A few more snapshots from the event… including my dream makeup trunk. Imagine if I could bring this to every makeup client of mine (!!!)
We also did a little arts and craft, where we dressed up our own “La Petite Robe Noire” gal and designed a dress for her. Here is my super-glamourous little black dress dream outfit: a black crop t-shirt and a full black skirt!
