We are a few days away from Valentine’s Day and I am all ready to embrace some serious color that will help me feel mischievous, seductive and elusive. Last year I stumbled upon Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire collection and fell head over heels in love with their nail lacquer and lip colour collection. The colors were vibrant, saucy , and perfumed. Yes, you read it correctly…perfumed.
This year, they added some new colors to their nail lacquer and lip colour collection and the most amazing mascara that can help you contour each last to get mega volume, curl and length.
Like most women, I have always dreamed of having long, sexy, sultry, drama to the max lashes. Sadly in my family gene pool, I got short, stubbly, hardly existent lashes. Heck, the hubs has long sexy lashes and he doesn’t need them! I have to rely heavily on falsies to help me achieve voluminous sexy lashes.
Guerlain recently added this 2-in-1 brush to their La Petite Robe Noire collection and it is life changing. The body of the brush helps me grab every lash to coat and sculpt it for maximum volume, length and drama, whereas the round head helps me make sure to catch those small lashes near the corner of eyes (even the strays at the far end). The result, super luscious lashes.
Lip & Cheek Tint
One of my favorite books I read in 2016 was ‘How to be Parisian Wherever You Are’. This book inspired me to find my’ je ne sais quoi style that every Parisian seems to have with natural grace and beauty. The Parisian women doesn’t spend a great deal of time fussing in-front of a mirror. She looks radiant, natural, and glowing…but there is nothing natural on how she achieves that radiant and glowing look.
Yesterday I shared an insta-story on my day off and I applied this new 2-in-1 gel that can be used to get a natural makeup less rosy glow for cheeks and lips. I loved how light and sheer the shade was on my skin and this formula allows me to build up how pink I want to go.
This was the major culprit that made me fall in love with La Petite Robe Noire. The very first lip color I got was ‘My First Lipstick‘ (fitting name). I loved the sheer pink color that had a touch of shimmer to it. The color was natural, hydrating and luminous. Shortly after I added ‘Red Heels‘ to my collection because I was obsessed with trying to find that perfect red lip color that was bold and a statement on its own. Before I knew it I added another, and another to my collection that I had 6 incredibly shiny lip colors that had the most intense and vibrant colors…that were perfumed and had the most yummiest flavor.
This year I added ‘Ruby Ring‘, ‘Sun-Glasses‘ and ‘Orchid Beanie’ to my growing collection. I got the Ruby Ring because I love the deep, red, earthy tones this lip color has. I have been obsessed with getting ‘bee sting’ lips ever since I saw Kim Basinger with her bee sting lips. The lip color Sun Glasses helps me achieve a light orange shade on my lips giving the bee sting appearance, minus the sting. The third color I got was Orchid Beanie because I love how deep and rich the color is (almost like a magenta shade). Like all my other lipsticks from this collection, the colors are dense, incredibly shiny, and luxuriously hydrating.
Remember I mentioned that this collection is perfumed? The nail colors in this collection are fragranced that you will catch yourself multiple times off guard sniffing your fingers and trying to figure out if the scent is floral or fruity…or a mix of both. (I’m leaning towards fruity). I started my nail color collection last year with Black Perfecto, Pink Tie, Pink Ballerina and Fire Bow. All of these colors have an incredibly amount of shine that I don’t need to apply a top coat. Plus they last a little over a week before the color starts chipping, which is record breaking for me since I tend to play water quite frequently.
This year I got Lilac Belt and I love the deep magenta shade that smells fruity with an insane amount of time. And yes, I completely skipped out on the top coat because who needs it when your nail polish smooth and incredibly shiny.
