Guerlain Python Bag (012) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour

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. It had semi-sheer color payoff after two layers, and it could be semi-opaque after three layers, which is a little less than described but close. The texture was smooth, balm-like, and easy to apply to the lips. The color lasted for three hours and was lightly hydrating. Estee Lauder Tender Trap (P, $32.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Guerlain Poppy Cap (020) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a bright, medium coral-red with warm, orange undertones and a lightly pearlized finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation after two layers of product, which applied fairly evenly, but it could have gone on more smoothly overall. The consistency was moderately emollient and a little thicker than the other shades, but it was comfortable to wear and felt lightly hydrating. This shade lasted for three and a half hours on me.

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.
