Burberry London with Love Illuminating Blush and Bronzer

I ordered a slew of Burberry products and half of them I have yet to play with. Pictured up top, still in their boxes, some lip products, a couple of eye products and some samples. Burberry doesn't release as many collections as other brands but they have a knack for making products look very enticing. This is especially true with this London With Love makeup collection for summer. The collection includes some lipsticks, nail polish, lip and cheek blooms and the stars of the lot, the blush and bronzer with the embossed heart in the center. That blush looks so pretty in the pan, I had to have it!

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Deliciously Shiny Lip Colour in Berry Beret

Hey, it's been awhile! Life does occasionally get in the way of my blogging time. But today I'm excited because a product that I've been so eager to receive finally arrived at my door. Tada! La Petite Robe Noire Deliciously Shiny Lip Colour in Berry Beret...

Guerlain has truly become one of my favorite brands. If you ask me today, to pick three brands that I would love to represent, I would say Guerlain and Chanel straight away. I have an old love for Laura Mercier so I'll pick that as third. But I have to admit, LM hasn't been particularly impressive lately.

Back to the lipstick at hand... the first thing we need to talk about is that scent. This is one overpoweringly perfumed product. I usually love the way Guerlain lipsticks smell but this one puts me off. I never did like the fragrance but I like the packaging of La Petite Robe Noire. The brand has really captured the look of the bottle in the lipstick (and the nail color). I appreciate the youthfulness of the concept, which should help make the brand a little fresher. Will it appeal to the young market that they're targeting? I don't know. There's the price point to consider and I'm not too sure the performance is up to snuff here.
