Inspired by Violette’s visits to the rose gardens at Jardin Bagatelle in Paris, Petal Bouche Amour Fou matte lipstick is iconically French. The color is deep, yet vibrant with electricity. As Violette says, “it’s turned ON!”. The formula is longwear and comfortable on the lips. The feeling is powerful, sexy, exciting, and fierce.
Cœur Infidèle is here to make a pink lover out of you. Petal Bouche Amour Fou’s spicy sister is a shade of pink like you’ve never seen before. The highly specific, bright vibrant fuchsia is balanced by a blue and yellow base… creating a bold color that will even convince people who don’t think they can wear pink.
We suggest keeping this one in your bag with Baume Shine and Avec Amour to add freshness and vavavoom whenever (and wherever) you like.

In truth, I’ve been developing Petal Bouche in my head since I was a little girl running around Jardins Bagatelle in Paris, surrounded by the most beautiful roses... It was here I discovered the most incredible “black” rose—the deepest red rose you can find—and my obsession began. I started to imagine this exact color and texture on the lips of every French woman I passed on the street, and as soon as I was old enough, I began a desperate search for this perfect, matte red lipstick, but it didn’t exist. Later, as a makeup artist I worked like a mad chemist on every shoot trying to recreate this velvety rose. By the time I got into a lab my vision was exact and my standards were HIGH, so it took nearly two years of me saying “2% more yellow! 1% more blue! More vibrance!” and driving my chemists absolutely crazy before we were finally able to bottle up the love of my life…my dream came true...Petal Bouche.
When I started creating my dream pink, I craved a color that was totally different than what instantly comes to mind. It had to be something more mysterious and seductive… with a touch of spice. This fine balance hovers between dark and bright, warm and cool. It’s a contradiction that’s very tricky to finesse, formulation-wise. As with all of our Petal Bouche buildable matte liquid lip colors past and future, this is no easy feat. In fact, I wasn’t even sure we’d be able to launch. I put all of our energy into perfecting this boundary-pushing pink so that we didn’t have to compromise the color. And one and a half years later, I’m so happy to say that we did it!
Welcome to the Petal Bouche family, Cœur Infidèle. It’s a brand-new way to wear pink. The next-level vibrant fuchsia with a blue and yellow base gives lips a strikingly bold vibe. To me, it looks amazing when it’s layered, adding more drama and depth the darker it gets. It’s a dangerous, spicy shade that reacts differently depending on the light. I can’t wait to see how this special pink inspires you to push your status quo.

Exactly as advertised!
I'm really impressed. This lipstick is easy to neatly apply; one coat covers my lips in a completely saturated red that looks exactly like it did in their photo try on tool. Very little transfer to glasses once set, and doesn't bleed much at all outside my lips. Much better than any other deep red matte lipsticks I've tried, and I've tried a decent variety of luxury brands. I even love how it looks as my only makeup (see photo)!
Also works for a bouche mordue look
It took me a while to decide whether to buy this product or not because I'm not a fan of the super deep, graphic red lipstick look that is usually shown with Petal Bouche; I prefer a more natural, accessible kind of bouche mordue look. However, since Violette said many times that it's a buildable colour, and the tone looked so gorgeous on pictures, I felt it was worht a try. Plus, it could be a great vegan option to replace my Mac's Ruby Woo. Well, I have to say that it definitely works for me on every front. I apply a bit of product on my lips, spread it with my fingers and tap, tap, tap, to achieve a natural texture and kind of settle the product better (which is not something to worry about, actually, because it lasts on for so long). With this technique, the colour looks not so dark but like a beautiful berry(ish) magenta that is still intense and that illuminates your face immediately. To sum it up, it's the perfect red lipstick, also if you want a more natural look.
The BEST red lip!
Petal Bouche is now my favorite red lip color. The formula glides on effortlessly and makes me, a non makeup pro to say the least, look like a professional. I love that it stays all day even through mask wearing, eating, drinking, and countless Zoom meetings. Also, it doesn't dry my lips out!
Je mets très rarement du rouge-à-lèvre sinon plutôt ****. Et quand j’ai découvert Violette et son Petal-bouche j’ai tout de suite été séduite et j’ai succombé aux 2 teintes. C’est absolument génial ce rendu, très riche en couleur avec la sensation de ne porter qu’un voile léger sur les lèvres. Je n’ai jamais vu ça auparavant. Je pense que j’en mettrais plus souvent maintenant. En tout cas je me sens plus « femme » avec
Un RAL exceptionnel
Je recommande +++++ il a une texture dingue et surtout une ☝️ croyable couleur. Je n’ai que des compliments depuis que je le porte ! Merci pour cette dinguerie de RAL
This lipstick is just perfect! The shade is a beautiful and classic red and it has a great hold and does not transfer. But at the same time it is super thin on the lips and does not feel crusty. I love it!
The 20’s perfect red !
The texture is incredible , not to mention how easy it applies without messing up your lip line . It’s the most gorgeous red I’ve ever seen in a lipstick , my husband complimented my lips for the first time ever !
I want to love this. I really do! I've been a fan of Violette for ages and I finally received PB (in the pink shade) for xmas. I'm glad I didn't have to pay for it because if I did I think I would be even more annoyed haha. When you first apply, the colour is GORGEOUS, like suuper stunning... but it just does nottttttt wear well :( It bleeds and fades so quickly, even with liner, which isn't a problem I have with any of my other lipsticks. I know liquid lippies can be tricky but none of my other brands wear quite this badly. Like most other LLs, PB is also defs drying which is pretty par for the course but it's frustrating (actually don't know why anyone is developing new LL products anymore lol just give us regular bullet style!). I have to make sure my lips are super well exfoliated + moisturized when I use this which is annoyinggg. Really hope VFR HQ can figure out their formulas in general because the colours are beautiful but in practise they leave a lot to be desired (having a tough time with the bisou balm as well). TLDR - gorgeous colours, troubling formulas!
Hi Karla, Thank you for your feedback! We always suggest moisturizing your lips before application and removing excess product before applying. The Petal Bouche as the formula is highly pigmented. We will link a video below. We hope this helps! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiYk17bExfU
Petal Bouche Matte
The color is beautiful, but it wears off quickly, easily migrates, and leaves a ring if you're not constantly fussing with it. Love the color, the texture though leaves a lot to be desired.
Hi Ren, Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear that you love the color. We recommend removing excess product before applying the Petal Bouche as the formula is highly pigmented. We will link a video below. We hope this is helpful :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiYk17bExfU
