Tag: Guerlain Terracotta Summer 2018 review


I am still swooning over the Guerlain Summer by Terracotta 2018 Collection which I reviewed here and I have two more reasons to be excited with the two limited editions for the famous Guerlain Terracotta line. I am talking about Guerlain Terracotta Sahara Jewel and Guerlain Terracotta Sous les Palmiers which are both limited edition powders this summer. You may find many references of the Guerlain Terracotta bronzing powders for the quality, performance, their amazing fragrance, and the packaging many times on my blog and on my social handles.

Guerlain Terracotta Sahara Jewel

Guerlain Terracotta Sahara Jewel is all about the natural golden glow which this powder gives to the skin with the warmth and color of it, envisioning the journey to the heart of the desert.  ‘Irresistible for use on the face and décolleté, the Terracotta bronzing and blush powder is set to be the collector’s item of the summer: the combination of the best-selling, subtly iridescent Terracotta 03 shade, which warms all complexions, and a rosy shade to highlight your sun-kissed glow. The colorss can be used separately or blended in a flash to even out a tan and warm the complexion. It creates a natural result on skin that stays true all day long.
This collector’s jewel compact in a soft shade and decorated with the legendary Terracotta sun can be reused once the powder is finished.’

Guerlain Terracotta Sous les Palmiers

Guerlain Terracotta Sous les Palmiers is an oversized limited edition powder, envisioning a sunlit break in the shade of the palm trees, it blends into the skin to give warmth and colour to beautifully enhance a natural golden glow. ‘Irresistible for use on the face and décolleté, the Terracotta bronzing and blush powder is set to be the collector’s item of the summer: the combination of the best-selling, subtly iridescent Terracotta 03 shade, which warms all complexions, and a coral shade to highlight your sun-kissed glow. The colours can be used separately or blended in a flash to even out a tan and warm the complexion. It creates a natural result on skin that stays true all day long. This collector’s jewel compact decorated with precious palm leaves can be reused once the powder is finished.’

Both the powders are limited edition and everything from the packaging and the formula is worth checking out and worth falling in love, no doubt Guerlain bronzers are my all-time favorite.

‘The Terracotta powder’s fragrance sweeps you away to the heart of the desert. Ylang-ylang and orange blossom notes create the feeling of a cocoon. They blend with sunny-faceted notes of tonka bean and vanilla, which embody the essence of Terracotta. A touch of white musk adds a softness to this irresistible fragrance. Your senses are awakened and instantly transported elsewhere.’

As mentioned, I am a fan of the Guerlain formulas and their effectiveness. The powder has a very fine texture and shade. It is soft and blends in beautifully into the skin. The formula is buildable and gives the most beautiful glow to the skin like so supreme yet natural. The staying power is another great thing about the formula, it stays on all day without any touch-ups. The ingredients include a fine blend of pigments that help with the dullness while creating a healthy natural glow.

The two shades can be used as a bronzer and blush respectively. They both can be used together to give a subtle natural glow by applying it in the ‘figure of 3’, starting from the forehead to the cheekbones and down to the chin to recreate a freshly sun-kissed glow. The shade works pretty well for my medium tan skin tone as a setting powder, as a highlighter, and also buildable to give me that beautiful natural bronze. The powders blend in so nicely into my skin tone giving the natural radiance and healthy glow to the skin. Follow me on my Instagram to see my everyday natural makeup looks and tips for these beautiful products.

I would highly recommend you to check these powders out if you are looking for a new bronzing powder, or you want to restock your favorite bronzer in a bigger size, or even if you are a collector and lover of Guerlain products like me. Guerlain  Terracotta Sahara Jewel and Guerlain Terracotta Sous les Palmiers are available at Guerlain Counters and Boutiques, The Hudson’s Bay, Saks Fifth Avenue, Shoppers Drug Mart, and Sephora.
