Guerlain is spreading the sunshine with the launch of its limited-edition Summer 2015 collection. Paying homage to Terracotta, the line encapsulates the spirit, look and scent of the sun. At the heart stands the colorful Guerlain My Terracotta Bronzing Powder, alongside must-have shades of Le Vernis Nail Lacquer, Rouge Automatique lipsticks and Waterproof Summer Shadow lustrous liquid shadows.

The star of the collection, My Terracotta, transports the feeling of summer to any destination. It’s as simple as selecting the Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder compact and dressing it with one of these joyful and energetic sleeves to truly make it your own. Both the Caribbean-blue turquoise and sunset-worthy coral sleeves are reusable, and simple to remove and reapply.

Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint Powder Duos

Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint Powder Duo ($53.00 for 0.35 oz.) is supposed to create a “natural-looking, healthy glow” by using a “harmony of two shades.” There are four versions available, and I have the two designed for “Brunettes” (which tends to just mean warmer tones). It’s the type of product that is best applied swirled together, as the curved sliver of color on the edge is really quite thin, so only an eyeshadow brush could fit into it. Both shades had good, buildable color coverage with a soft, smoothing texture that looked good on the skin. The powder feels soft, silky, but thin and lightweight. They wore for eight hours each. The powders are heavily scented with a floral scent (primarily bergamot and gardenia) that I can smell from across the room when the compact is open and on my face (all day), so if you’re sensitive to scent, keep that in mind!

Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint Powder Duo for Summer 2015
Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint Powder Duo for Summer 2015

A single powder, cleverly composed of two complementary shades: the bare minimum to reveal the unique radiance of every woman. Its warm shade? A softened sun-kissed powder, lighter than the legendary Terracotta bronzing powder. Its pigments are less intense and work in osmosis with the skin to make it glow without ever overloading it. Its coloured shade? A reviving pink for Blondes or apricot for Brunettes that blends with the sun-kissed powder to deliver a burst of radiance. The Terracotta Joli Teint powder comes in 4 soft and delicate harmonies to revive all skin tones.

Terracotta Joli Teint Natural Healthy Glow Powder Duo ($53.00)

  • 00 Clair/Light-Blondes
  • 01 Clair/Light-Brunettes
  • 02 Naturel/Natural Blondes
  • 03 Naturel/Natural-Brunettes

Availability: Pre-order now at Neiman Marcus; March 2015 at other retailers/counters

Guerlain Les Precieux Eyeshadow Quad

Guerlain Les Precieux Eyeshadow Quad ($65.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for spring that features four shades ranging from olive green, peach, light yellow, and brown. A few of Guerlain’s quads I like, but a lot of them are less impressive. There’s definitely something different about the formula in the more recent iterations that is drier and more powdery, which has, in turn, made them sheerer, harder to apply, and shorter-wearing.
