La Petite Robe Noire Lips & Nails

La Petite Robe Noire, one of my all time favorite pieces. And we all know the iconic Guerlain fragrance in different versions. Now Guerlain has taken their little black dress to a new level with a pop of color!

And with that pop of color I mean 20 new lipstick shades and 8 new nail polish shades in a completely new line! Exciting! Olivier Echaudemaison created these shades as an accessory so we can alter our look constantly. And very important and new: the lipsticks as well as the nail polishes (!) are scented with (notes of) the La Petite Robe Noire fragrance. How cool is that?

Let's take a look at the packaging first. The packaging of the lipstick immediately reminded me of the Dior Addict lipsticks, it has the same system. The case has a little heart op top, just like the La Petite Robe Noire perfume. The packaging looks pretty and completely in line with the La Petite Robe Noire fragrance. The nail polishes have a square jar with again the cute LPRN heart shaped cap.

The lipsticks are very buildable, one layer is a sheer, natural look and 3 layers is as I swatched them. The color stays quite long, because they stain. The most special thing is of course that they are 'deliciously shiny'. They have a fruity floral scent (and taste) which is inspired by the LPRN fragrance. And they have a shiny chic finish. There are 20 shades of lipsticks and there are 4 must-have shades (which I all swatched above): 001 My First Lipstick, 002 Pink Tie, 003 Red Heels and 007 Black Perfecto.

001 My First Lipstick has a very subtle hint of color, but it has a gorgeous veil of shimmer. Thanks to the formula being enriched by eosin, it reveals the natural color of the lips. This is one of my favorite shades because of the shimmer, it's so tiny and looks really good.

002 Pink Tie is a fuchsia color and has an almost neon effect after 3 coats, just like on the swatches. Vibrant!

003 Red Heels is a red with a orange undertone. It brings warmth to the cheeks and creates a healthy glow.

007 Black Perfecto is my favorite color, because it's just really special. Yep, this one is black in the bullet, but not on the lips. The eosin plays a role again, and brings out your natural lip color a bit more, for a 'bitten lips' effect. You can use this alone, or as a top coat for a smoky touch.

The nail polishes come in 8 different colors and a top and base coat. They have a shiny finish, which I love on my nails. The 4 must-have colors of the lipsticks also have 4 compatible nail polishes. And the most important thing about these is that they release a scent of red berries and petals once it's dry. Just like the original La Petite Robe Noire fragrance. Such a nice detail! And just like the regular Guerlain nail polishes they apply really easy with the thicker brush.

My favorites are the Black Perfecto lipstick (it looks completely black in the case, but it has such a special pink tone on the lips) and the My First Lipstick (those shimmers, so pretty!). I'm also really digging the blackish nail polish, even though I normally never wear such dark nails.

But now I'm curious about what you think of this line, anything that you're eyeing? 

Love, Rani
