Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire 463 Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine – Gets the Shine Back On Your Lips in Winters
Sorry for being absent from IMBB for so long. Winters have sent in here in the US, bringing in super cold winds and scary amount of snow in certain regions. This is the weather where one tends to get incredibly lazy and the only thing to do that sound good is to wrap yourself in a cozy blanket with some hot cocoa. So in order to redeem myself for my long absence, I bring to you a review of a product from the highly-renowned and prestigious brand – Guerlain. It’s their Maxi Shine Gloss d’Enfer in the shade 463 La Petite Robe Noire.
Maxi Shine Gloss d’Enfer guarantees lips a shimmering, radiant and plumping finish. Maxi Shine’s oil composition creates a moisturizing barrier to ensure an intense softness. Additionally, each shade presents varying degrees of coverage and pigment intensity. The perfect partner for a desirable, appealing smile, Maxi Shine offers tailor-made effects for beautifully enhanced lips.
My Experience with Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire 463 Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine:
I normally do not like “shimmery” glosses. Even though I love how they look on the lips, I have had bad experience in the past with shimmery glosses which feel very “gritty.” But when I saw this product from Guerlain, I was hoping that my experience with their product will be different. I am pleased to say I have not been disappointed.
Super classy. I love the clear tube with the black top with the name Guerlain embossed in it. Super convenient to travel with.
The shade 463 can be described as a light pink with a hint of plum undertone. It has lots of golden and purple specks of shimmer throughout. I do not find the shimmer too gritty and the gloss goes on super smooth and evenly with the help of the skinny doe-foot wand provided. The shimmer in this gloss is very fine even though they are very notable on the lips. It gives the lips almost another dimension. It is perfect for night out or party wear. It does not go on patchy even though the gloss itself isn’t very opaque in color. It goes on pretty sheer hence I like to top it over some MLBB shade of matte lip color. People with pigmented lips will have a problem with this as this product will not look good just over bare lips.
The gloss does not feel too tacky on the lips. It makes my lips feel very hydrated and smooth and does not accentuate fine lips or chapped lips. It feels super lightweight on the lips.
It has an amazing high-end perfume like scent, very fruity floral.
The staying power is okay, it stays on my lips for 3-4 hours after which the shine starts to wear down. I feel the need to reapply it to look fresh. Some amount of shimmer is also left behind on the lips as the gloss fades. Overall, I do really enjoy this lip gloss. It is slightly on the expensive side, but if you are a gloss lover, you will enjoy having this in your collection. This product changed my outlook on “shimmery” glosses.
Pros of Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire 463 Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine:

Cons of Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire 463 Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine:
