Review + swatches + look – Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lipstick and Nail Polish in 02 Pink Tie

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lipstick and Nail Polish review and swatches

Earlier this year, Guerlain released a capsule makeup collection as an extension of their popular La Petite Robe Noire fragrance. This collection, containing 25 Deliciously Shiny Lip Colour shades (available globally, availability will vary by country), and 10 Deliciously Shiny Nail Colour shades (globally) features whimsical designs and is also scented with their La Petite Robe Noire scent. I received the Lip Colour and Nail Colour in coordinating shade 02 Pink Tie, a cool-toned pink.

Deliciously Shiny Lip Colour (C$37) is a sheer, jelly-like lipstick. It feels very balmy, but also thick. It reminds me a little bit like the KissKiss Roselip Hydrating & Plumping Tinted Lip Balm from last fall but thicker with more drag. I don’t generally wear cool-toned pinks well, and it was the same for this one. The cool-toned pink made my face look a bit ashy, and not brightened like I prefer. I also wasn’t a big fan of the formula, as it wasn’t super hydrating like the KissKiss Roselip, and wasn’t very pigmented either.

The La Petite Robe Noire scent, thankfully, is just minimal, and dissipates after a few minutes. Wear time was also below average, as expected with this type of sheer lipstick, lasting about 2 hours before fading and needing a touchup.

The Deliciously Shiny Nail Colour (C$27) is just incredible, and has one of the best nail polish formulas and brush heads that I’ve ever tried. The creamy formula is ultra glossy, ultra smooth and very easy to apply; it’s not too thick or too thin, and provides just enough coverage with one coat. You can see in the swatch below that one coat gives you good coverage with a bit of a jelly-like effect, and you get total opacity with two coats. The brush head is also fantastic, contouring perfect around my nail bed and cuticle. I was able to do both hands super quickly, without much cleanup after.

Wear time is fantastic, and nothing short of what I expected from Guerlain. Deliciously Shiny Nail Colour in Pink Tie wore for 7 days with just minor tip wear, with a base coat but no top coat. It also wears ultra glossy without the top coat, which is a bonus for those who are short for time.

The Nail Colour shade in Pink Tie is warmer than the Lip Colour in Pink Tie, pulling as a bright pink on my nails. The colour also makes my hands appear brighter!
