Guerlain Neon Pumps, Berry Beret, Cherry Cape La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour

Guerlain Neon Pumps (065) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour
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. It had a thin texture with barely-there sheen, and it was neither drying nor hydrating over the three and a half hours it lasted. Urban Decay Sheer Anarchy (DC, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Quite the Thing! (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Bite Beauty Bellini (LE, $24.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar).

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). Bobbi Brown Hot Rose (P, $35.00) is brighter, more pigmented (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Kingston (DC, $36.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% 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. Guerlain Pink Bangle (064) (P, $32.00) is warmer (95% similar). Guerlain Neon Pumps (065) (P, $32.00) is lighter (90% similar).

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 Mauve Gloves (068) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with subtle, cool undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage after two layers, staying true to its buildable formula. The consistency was smooth, balm-like, and comfortable to apply and to wear. The color lasted for four hours and left a subtle stain behind while being lightly hydrating. MAC Yield to Love (LE, $17.50) is lighter (90% similar).

Guerlain Lilac Belt (069) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a lightly brightened, medium-dark magenta purple with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had buildable color payoff from sheer to semi-opaque, which is line with the brand’s claims. The texture had a balm-like feel to it, which made it comfortable to apply as it did not drag as well as to wear, as was lightly hydrating. It could have applied more evenly, though. The color lasted for four hours on me. Givenchy Ultravioline (24) (P, $34.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Romantically Inclined (LE, $17.50) is darker (90% similar).

Guerlain Plum-brella (070) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium-dark, berry purple with cooler undertones and barely-there shine. This shade had some of the least shine of the shades I tried, though it wasn’t matte. The color payoff was buildable from sheer to medium coverage. It had a smooth, thin but not too thin texture that was easy to apply. On me, this shade wore well for four and a half hours and left a stain behind. I found it somewhat moisturizing overall.

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a new, permanent lipstick formula that is available in 20 shades. It’s described as a “buildable, lightweight lipstick” with an “ultra-luminous” finish and scented with the “fruity and flora La Petite Robe Noire fragrance.” I have 15 of the 20 shades, which you’ll find swatched below, and I’ll be reviewing them as I can.

As a note, it is heavily scented (which is part of the point of the range), and it is definitely stronger than the scent used in other Guerlain lip products.

Guerlain Fancy Kiss & Kiss Blossom KissKiss Lipsticks

Guerlain Fancy Kiss KissKiss Lipstick
Guerlain Fancy Kiss KissKiss Lipstick

Guerlain Fancy Kiss KissKiss Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, medium coral with warm, orange tones and a natural sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a smooth, lightweight texture that had moderate slip. It’s a very comfortable formula to wear as it was moderately hydrating over time, but the wear time was three and a half hours and a smidgen of color pulled into the more obvious lip lines on my bottom lip. MAC Style Surge (P, $23.00) is darker (95% similar). Buxom Coral Confession (P, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Understudy (114) (DC, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Solar Affair (LE, $52.00) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty Centifolia (LE, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Buxom Two-Timer (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Retro Coral (P, $35.00) is darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Heavenly (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Dior Grege 1947 (169) (P, $35.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (80% similar). Make Up For Ever Poppy Orange (301) (P, $24.00) is brighter (80% similar). Smashbox Nude Beach (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Guerlain Kiss Blossom KissKiss Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, medium rosy pink with warmer undertones and fine silver pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and while the texture didn’t tug and still felt smooth/slightly wet as I maneuvered it across my lips, it was one of the more unflattering Guerlain lipsticks I’ve tried–it seemed to accentuate lip lines and the texture of my lips. The color wore for three and a half hours and was very lightly hydrating. Estee Lauder Bold Innocent (210) (P, $32.00) is cooler (95% similar). Estee Lauder Sweet Sinner (P, $32.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Bonsai Bloom (LE, $20.00) is less pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Ansel (DC, $36.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Only You (LE, $17.50) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Rose Dipped (LE, $17.50) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Jake (P, $36.00) is darker (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Dark Pink Frost (P, $0.99) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Rush (DC, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Venus Rising (05) (LE, $53.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar).

Tom Ford Beauty Douglas (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Little Buddha (P, $17.50) is darker, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Guerlain KissKiss Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to have a “lip-shaping and plumping effect” from hyaluronic acid spheres and “incredibl[e] hydration” with a “fine, even, and rich creamy texture … with impeccable hold.” They’re a lightweight, very creamy and fairly emollient/slippery formula that’s lightly hydrating and gives lips a smoother appearance. I find that they have more color and less slip compared to Shine Automatiques but more slip and shine than Rouge Automatiques. They’re lighter-weight, more emollient, and less hydrating than Rouge Gs. They wear longer than Shine Automatiques but shorter than Rouge Automatiques and Rouge Gs. If you like the shine and shimmer of the Shine Automatique range but want more color coverage, then this might be the right formula for you. If you prefer the wear and hold of Rouge Gs, this formula is noticeably different. The lipsticks are violet-scented but have no discernible taste.

Guerlain Pause d'Ete Terracotta Bronzing Powder Duo
Guerlain Pause d’Ete Terracotta Bronzing Powder Duo

Guerlain Pause d’Ete Terracotta Bronzing Powder Duo ($82.00 for 0.60 oz.) swirls together to create a warmer, medium orange-brown hue with a frosted shimmer. The gold is an overspray (which I tried to remove, but a bit of it lingered), while the browner shade is a medium-dark, golden brown, and the center shade was a light-medium coral-orange. Too Faced Luminous Peach (LE, ) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). NARS Esoteric (LE, $30.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Trace Gold (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Guerlain Terra India (LE, $53.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Suqqu Hanachaori (02) (P, $34.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Linda (LE, $23.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Angelique (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, more muted (90% similar). Clinique Golden Glow (P, $27.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Center of the Universe (LE, $33.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Perfectly Poised (Outer) (LE, $33.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It is housed in a wooden compact where the top lifts off completely and is held on by magnets. If you have a very small, tapered face brush, you could use the two shades separately, but it will be hard to avoid dipping into the other shade if you use an average-sized cheek brush. The powder is fragranced with “notes of orange blossom, tonka bean, vanilla, and white musk,” and it is heavily scented, but it wasn’t that noticeable applied. The texture of the bronzer was a little firmer but smooth, while the center shade softer and looser, so I felt like when I swirled my brush in the pan, I always got more of the center shade on the brush than the bronzing component. The powder applied well, blended nicely, and was easy to use; the shimmer didn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture. On me, it wore for eight hours.
