Guerlain Terracotta Collection | March 2009
Terracotta Mineral Flawless Bronzing Powder $65.00
Inspired by the colours in the warm glow of the earth, this groundbreaking bronzing powder harnesses the unifying power of minerals to offer an incredibly natural-looking tan and a flawless finish. Without a trace of coverage, skin will radiate with a natural glow all day as the super-fine powder glides and melts into the skin instantly and invisibly.
- Available in 3 shades: 01 Light, 02 Medium, 03 Dark.
Terracotta Eau sous le Vent Soothing Moisturizing Mist $55.00
A delicious mist that improves hydration in the skin and amplifies the tan while enchanting the senses with a sun-soaked scent. Its refreshing texture is enriched with a vegetable protein to bathe the skin in softness and protect against the dryness and heat of summer. Moisture levels in the skin are increased up to 35% as the Tan Booster complex simultaneously works to enhance and prolong your tan day after day.
Terracotta Huile du Voyageur Nourishing Dry Oil SPF 8 $59.00
Sensuous and nourishing this silky-light, dry oil leaves the skin with a divinely smooth and luscious finish. The lightly perfumed scent of the Tiare flower immediately takes you to an exotic, faraway paradise while the oil’s Tan Booster Technology and Roucou, a reddish-brown vegetable pigment, intensify the golden colour of your skin. The soft, satin finish is radiantly accented with an iridescent veil made of golden mother-of-pearl particles.
Terracotta Baume au Coeur High-Shine Soothing Lip Balm $30.00
Three natural ingredients, wild mango butter, marula oil and luffa oil, combine to create a highly moisturizing and protective formula. The luxurious texture is enriched with micro-sponges that glide onto the lips and plump them with moisture. Three shades were specially created to enhance the lips’ natural colour, making delicious accents for a glowing tan all summer.
- Available in 3 shades: 01 Rose Venus, 02 Coeur Caramel, 03 Cocoa Love
Kabuki Brush $52.00
Elegant and delicate, with a handle in lacquered wood, the Guerlain Kabuki brush is incredibly dense with high-quality goat hair. As a result, it can pick up more bronzing pigment than any other brush, which it “crushes” and smoothes generously onto skin for optimal, uniform results.
Fard Indien Mineral Eyeshadow (LIMITED EDITION) $35.00
A loose mineral powder for the eyes with intense colours that melt onto the skin for a shimmering, radiant finish. The eyes appear illuminated, glowing and exotic.
- Available in 3 shades: 01 Paradise Sand, 02 Holy Smoke, 03 Jungle Dust.
Kajal Mineral Khol (LIMITED EDITION) $35.00
This rich, ultra-smooth stick glides colour onto the inner rim of the lower eyelid with a high concentration of pigments that emphasizes the eyes with a new intensity. Available in: 01 Black Fakhir
Gloss Cashmere Velvet Matte Gloss (LIMITED EDITION) $28.00
Combining the lightness of a gloss and the velvety matte finish of a lipstick, it envelops the lips like a second skin that is comfortable, velvety and non-sticky. As soft as cashemere, it covers the smile with colour that is matte and intense.
- Available in 3 shades: 01 Rose Pondichery, 02 Beige Bengali, 03 Rouge Sultan
Availability: Terracotta collection is available beginning March 2009 at select Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Bloomingdales and Bergdorf Goodman.

Mario Badescu Drying Cream ($12.00)
When it comes to small, flesh-colored acne, this is the king for me. Whenever I spot any that crop up, I’ll smear a little of the Drying Cream on the area before I go to bed. In the morning, they’ve totally vanished, and I mean vanished! I’m pretty skeptical about acne spot treatments, especially how their ability to work quickly, but this one delivers (at least for me).
In fact, I noticed a few small fleshy bumps last night, put this on the area, and voila–no troubles this morning. I find this to be less drying than the Drying Lotion, which means I can use it more often and without fear of getting dry patches in exchange for clearer skin. (The Drying Lotion is fab, but I find I need to use it every other day or two to avoid drying my skin out too much!) This is also my go-to acne spot treatment if I “feel” one coming on.
Mario Badescu offers several acne spot treatments, and so far, I’ve liked all of them and found them to work on different types of acne. I know some of you would rather an all-in-one spot treatment, but in a way, knowing that each one is designed to work with specific types of acne makes me feel like they’re more efficient.
For $12 you got a big tub of Drying Cream–seriously, this will probably lose efficacy before you finish using it. I would prefer tube-packaging over an open jar, but it’s cheap enough where I don’t feel I’m breaking the bank rebuying it after a few months, you know? So any issue with packaging isn’t enough to keep me from loving this product.
