Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lipsticks - Swatches

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lipsticks ($32 each) at Nordstrom

Guerlain's La Petite Robe Noire collection is a recent launch here in the US, and I finally found it at my local Nordstrom this weekend.  As the name suggests, the collection is an extension of - or inspired by - Guerlain's La Petite Robe Noire perfume.  The packaging features a clear top, much like that of the perfume bottle, and unlike the testers in the photo above, the lipsticks are housed in black tubes with clear caps (the actual lipstick is seen in a corner in the above pic).  The collection also includes nail colors to mix and match with the lipsticks.  The lipstick formula is quite balm-like, lightweight, and shiny.  A lot of brands have similar lipsticks, but I liked the bright yet easy-to-wear colors in the Guerlain range - these are just the sort I love to wear this time of the year.  Of the colors I tried, only 3 had some shimmer to it - 012 Python Bag, 007 Black Perfecto, and 013 Leather Blazer - but the shimmer particles are quite fine and not very obvious in swatches.  Scroll on for more photos.

I love lightweight, balm-like lipsticks, so the Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire lipstick - or rather the formula itself - gets my vote.  The colors are beautiful, with a mix of brights and some darker shades, and the slightly sheer formula makes these quite easy to wear.  The 3 shimmery shades look quite dark in the tube - Black Perfecto looks black - but they turn out quite sheer brown/brownish berry on swatches.  Definitely not the best pick for someone who likes a full-coverage lipstick and/or if you are looking for a lipstick that's going to turn out just like it's in the tube.  These lipsticks also have a delicate fruity-sweet scent similar to the perfume, and I have to take Guerlain's word on that because I never did check for scent.  Well, it wasn't noticeable with swatching on my hand :P :P ... and I amn't terribly fussy about using fragranced products anyway.  The original perfume - Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire - can be a bit overwhelming, though, so if you have a sensitive nose, do check before buying.
