Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Collection Review

My luxury makeup experiences has mostly been limited at mid range brands such as Too Faced and Urban Decay. I haven't tried any Guerlain products before, so I was ecstatic to have recently won a giveaway from Samantha Sito for a Guerlain prize pack! The items I won are from the Spring 2017 La Petite Robe Noire collection which is inspired by their best selling fragrances of the same name.

Lashdress Mascara- $32
Shop it at Sephora
01 Noir

Volume, Curl, Length, Definition. That's what we want in a mascara and this one claims to do it all! I am not too picky with mascaras and a lot of them actually work well on me! The unique thing about this mascara is its wand. It features lightly tapered synthetic bristles but the tip is a round bulb meant to be used vertically. I actually really liked using the tip for my inner and outer corner lashes that are normally hard to reach. However, I still prefer natural bristles as I find synthetic bristles too pokey.

The formulation wasn't too thick nor runny and was able to give a dark black pigmentation! It doesn't dry very fluffy though so it's hard to go back in with a second coat. It ends up giving me more of a bold, striking look than a fluffed out look which I'm not sure yet if I like. However, I can't deny the luxe and whimsical packaging and the innovative brush!

Deliciously Shiny Lipstick- $38
023- Ruby Ring

I could never get into the matte lips trend. Either because my skin is too dry or I just have crazy lip lines. When I saw the word shiny on this lipstick, I knew I was going to like it. The lid is a clear plastic while the tube is black plastic with a cute heart at the bottom. The bullet is circular which makes it a bit difficult to be precise around the edges but I think because this is meant to be a semi-sheer lipstick, precision wasn't that important.

The shade I have is a classic red with a hint of orange. It is surprisingly easy to wear and makes my whole look put together even when I'm not wearing much other makeup. There is a light scent but it's not that noticeable when wearing. What I love the most is the glossy finish!! It is so shiny, probably the shiniest lipstick I own! But unlike a lipgloss, there's no tacky or stickiness to it at all. I'm a really big fan of this and can see myself wearing it to all my summer parties.

Deliciously Shiny Nail Lacquer- $28
002 Pink Tie

Hot pink nails are perfect timing for summer time especially on my toes! I've found some of my best nail polishes are the cheap drugstore ones so I was curious to give this a try. The clear lid comes off first and you unscrew the black cap underneath it. The first thing I noticed is that it's opaque in one coat! And the second thing is, the brush seems to not want to touch the skin and it perfectly glides over my nails without getting on the edges! Once I was done, I was in awe of how shiny the color is! 

Pictured here is my right hand, so I was able to paint with my left hand barely getting anything on the edges of my nails! The wear time unfortunately wasn't very good as it started lightly chipping on the second day. However, I'm blown away by how easy it is to use and the shiny result so I would definitely explore other color options!

Overall I liked the nail polish the best followed by the lipstick! I'm still trying to decide how I like the mascara as there are so many great drugstore mascaras these days! I'm definitely excited to try out more high end products though especially the Meteorites Pearls and the Terra Cotta Bronzers.
