La Petite Robe Noire is Guerlain’s more commercial range and although some say the quality is below Guerlain’s standards, I really find it to be of impeccable quality and also fun.
In my opinion, it’s a range which offers colour and sweetness, which addresses younger people but also people who like pigments, explosion of colour and easy to wear, sweet perfumes.
My first contact with La Petite Robe Noire was last Summer when I was send La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum Intense; together with this fragrance, Guerlain also launched 008 Denim Jacket, a nail polish with such high quality and level of pigmentation, that it has easily become one of my favourites.
La Petite Robe Noire Makeup Spring 2017 is a happy collection which instantly puts me in a good mood because it’s full of colour and perfume.
La Petite Robe Noire Makeup Spring 2017 includes:
- Black Lashdress Mascara (€33,00)
- Lipcheek (€34,00)
- Deliciously Shiny Nail Colour in 069 Lilac Belt (€24,50)
- Deliciously Shiny Lip Colour in 023 Ruby Ring, 073 Orchid Beanie, 043 Sun-Glasses (€32,50).
La Petite Robe Noire Black Lashdress Mascara (€33,00) | This mascara smells amazing!!!
It’s a deep black which resists on the lashes all day/ all night long and it’s super comfortable to wear (remember, I’m wearing contacts and my eyes are very sensitive).
The exclusive two-part brush has a rounded head at the top to add definition and help reach all the little hairs, while the main body provides length and volume, however for someone with straight lashes like me, it doesn’t provide enough curl.
La Petite Robe Noire Lipcheek (€34,00) | This product is actually my favourite because it’s so different from everything I’ve tried so far.
It has a neon pink shade and the formula is gel-like with a soft floral scent and a raspberry flavour.
The product is meant for cheeks & lips and it is applied with a brush similar to that of the nail polish.
It’s a buildable product, quite sheer and which offers that fresh flush of colour when applied on the cheeks.
I like to apply the product with the brush and blend it with my fingers afterwards.
My favourite way of wearing it is on my lips because the formula is infused with a mint derivative that provides a slight plumping sensation and a cooling feeling; also, I find that this pink shade suits me.
La Petite Robe Noire Deliciously Shiny Lip Colour in 023 Ruby Ring (€32,50) | This is one of my most pigmented lipsticks.
The formula is infused with light-attracting properties for a brilliant effect and several natural oils that provide a long-lasting hydration to lips; it’s creamy, easy to apply and comfortable with a lasting power of about 4 hours.
I LOVE it, it’s the perfect shade of red for the warm season!
La Petite Robe Noire Deliciously Shiny Nail Colour in 069 Lilac Belt (€24,50) | After my very positive experience with the beautiful 008 Denim Jacket, I couldn’t wait to try 069 Lilac Belt.
First of all, once it dries, this nail polish has an amazing sweet floral scent, which makes me smell my nails all day long!
It has the perfect medium creamy formula which applies easily and dries quickly.
It doesn’t stain the nail, it is super glossy and has a staying power of 5-7 days (with top coat).
The brush is one of my favourites!
The shade is an intense and very pigmented orchid hue with blue undertone, just gorgeous!
