Round-up: Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colours

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colours
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colours

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is supposed to be a “buildable, lightweight lipstick” with an “ultra-luminous” finish. They’re a good fit for someone who likes sheerer, buildable coverage in a traditional shade range. Some shades seem rather similar applied, so it is useful to swatch them in person or to only choose only one from a color family to ensure versatility in your stash. They are scented with the La Petite Robe Noire fragrance, which is sweet, fruity, and floral, and it is definitely noticeable applied (it stops registering to my nose after an hour or two), and I personally got a soapy, sweet taste at times while wearing them.

FORMULA OVERVIEW |
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is supposed to be a “buildable, lightweight lipstick” with an “ultra-luminous” finish. They are deliberately scented to smell like La Petite Robe Noire, which is a sweet, fruity and floral fragrance–the scent is noticeable both in the tube and applied, though I do not notice it after about about an hour or so of wear (if you are sensitive to scent, I would consider trying these in person or purchasing with the ability to return). There was a somewhat soapy, sweet taste (it contains Stevioside, used as a sweetener) at times, particularly if I ate/drank with the lipstick on.

The coverage varied from semi-sheer to semi-opaque with a more stained-like appearance, as it wasn’t too slippery and had a natural sheen. Some of the shades run together, but they tend to look more varied once they are on the lips (and depending on the coloring of your natural lips, this may or may not be as apparent, particularly with pinker or redder lips). The sheerer nature of these makes it harder to know how they will look on against a mere swatch on the skin, and even from the tube-to-swatch comparison, they can look different.

They have a balm-like feel on the lips, and they tend to feel softer and melted as I applied them, but they weren’t too emollient or too thin or too thick. The formula wore between two and six hours on me with some of the richer, deeper shades lasted the longest, and it was lightly hydrating. As they’re a buildable formula (Guerlain describes it as one, two, and three-layer coverage), all swatches I did were using two layers. A couple of side notes: 1) the label is on the cap only, so if you take off multiple caps, it is possible to inadvertently put the wrong cap on the wrong shade, and 2) they can be less-than-ideal for storing, if you typically have yours vertical, as the flat-side has the label on it.

Guerlain Python Bag (012) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with warm, caramel undertones and a fine copper and gld pearl.

This was one of the more shimmery shades in the range that I tried. It had semi-sheer coverage after two layers. The texture was soft, smooth, and glided on with ease. The color wore for three hours but was lightly hydrating. Tarte Glaze (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Air Kiss (304) (P, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar).

It had semi-opaque pigmentation after two layers of product, which applied fairly evenly, but it could have gone on more smoothly overall.

Guerlain My First Lipstick, Pinketie, Black Perfecto La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour

Guerlain My First Lipstick (001) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour
Guerlain My First Lipstick (001) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour

Guerlain My First Lipstick (001) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a light, warm pink with subtle shimmer and shine. It is sheer, and it stayed sheer, regardless of applying one, two, or three layers, so it isn’t like the majority of the range (and given the name, it’s not a surprise, but unfortunately, brands don’t usually distinguish one-off shades that deviate from the formula description, so it’s being held to the same standards as the rest of the line). It lasted for a mere hour before needing reapplication. The formula was slightly hydrating after wearing it three times in a row. MAC Nippon (P, $17.50) is darker (90% similar). MAC I'm In (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Only You (LE, $17.50) is more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Perfectionniste (P, $34.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild A Short Affair (P, $0.99) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Have We Met? (108) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Sophia (LE, $36.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Hug Me (P, $17.50) is lighter, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Marguerite (LE, $36.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Forbidden Pink (22) (P, $54.00) is darker, more pigmented, less glossy (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Greta (LE, $36.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). MAC Peach Blossom (P, $17.50) is more pigmented, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Guerlain Pinktie (002) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a bright, medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage after two layers, which applied fairly evenly but seemed to emphasize the texture of my lips, rather than soften it (which is what a lot of Guerlain’s lipsticks do!) as a result of the consistency being thinner and a little clingy. It wasn’t drying, but this shade didn’t feel hydrating to me either. The color lasted for two and a half hours. MAC Pink Pearl Pop (P, $17.50) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Mighty (116) (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Lustering (P, $17.50) is more pigmented, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Juice Bar (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Sheer Ladyflower (DC, $22.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Guerlain Black Perfecto (007) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a muted, blackened plum with subtle, warm undertones and a fine, pink pearl sheen. It might appear deep and near-black in the tube, but it is more of a darkening shade on the lips. It had sheer coverage after two layers, and a third layer didn’t intensify or darken much more than two layers, so it’s more like My First Lipstick in that respect and less like the majority of the range. It wore well for two hours and was very lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Sheer Shame (P, $17.00) is darker, more pigmented (85% similar). Guerlain Mauve Gloves (068) (P, $32.00) is darker, more pigmented (85% similar). MAC Sweetie (P, $17.50) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Promenade (LE, $5.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Guerlain Neon Pumps (065) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour

Guerlain Neon Pumps (065) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium, fuchsia pink with blue undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage after two layers, so it seemed slightly sheerer than most of the shades I’ve tried in the range.

Guerlain Berry Beret (066) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium, fuchsia pink with subtle, blue undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered evenly and smoothly after two layers. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. The texture was lightly emollient, more like a lip balm, and thin without being clingy. Guerlain Pink Bangle (064) (P, $32.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Guerlain Cherry Cape (067) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage after two layers, which is as described. The texture was smooth, balm-like, and glided on easily, though this particular shade seemed to have less shine than some of the other shades. The formula was lightly hydrating over the four and a half hours it lasted. The range has a few more fuchsia/raspberry pink shades, and on me, they seemed to run together and were harder to differentiate between.

FORMULA OVERVIEW |
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is supposed to be a “buildable, lightweight lipstick” with an “ultra-luminous” finish. They are deliberately scented to smell like La Petite Robe Noire, which is a sweet, fruity and floral fragrance–the scent is noticeable both in the tube and applied, though I do not notice it after about about an hour or so of wear (if you are sensitive to scent, I would consider trying these in person or purchasing with the ability to return). There was a somewhat soapy, sweet taste (it contains Stevioside, used as a sweetener) at times, particularly if I ate/drank with the lipstick on.

The coverage varied from semi-sheer to semi-opaque with a more stained-like appearance, as it wasn’t too slippery and had a natural sheen. Some of the shades run together, but they tend to look more varied once they are on the lips (and depending on the coloring of your natural lips, this may or may not be as apparent, particularly with pinker or redder lips). The sheerer nature of these makes it harder to know how they will look on against a mere swatch on the skin, and even from the tube-to-swatch comparison, they can look different.

They have a balm-like feel on the lips, and they tend to feel softer and melted as I applied them, but they weren’t too emollient or too thin or too thick. The formula wore between two and six hours on me with some of the richer, deeper shades lasted the longest, and it was lightly hydrating. As they’re a buildable formula (Guerlain describes it as one, two, and three-layer coverage), all swatches I did were using two layers. A couple of side notes: 1) the label is on the cap only, so if you take off multiple caps, it is possible to inadvertently put the wrong cap on the wrong shade, and 2) they can be less-than-ideal for storing, if you typically have yours vertical, as the flat-side has the label on it.
