The ultimate cult bronzing powder, one Terracotta product is sold somewhere in the world every 20 seconds. The sheer magic of this legendary make-up line is its ability to duplicate the illusion of sun on skin with an astoundingly natural-looking glow. Often imitated but never equalled, its secret formula strikes a subtle balance between color and transparency, creating a flawless natural look that lasts all day.

Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzing Powder ($75.00)

The Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzing Powder allows women to create a tailor-made palette for each season. Each powder contains 4 shades, which can be mixed and blended to create natural looking color for all times of the year. To enhance the 4 Seasons experience, Guerlain has added 4 new harmonies of coordinated shades to better accommodate women’s varying complexions. With a total of 6 shades to boast, Guerlain ensures that all women, fair or dark, can indulge in the pleasure of a Terracotta glow.

  • 00 Nude
  • 02 Natural Blondes
  • 03 Natural Brunettes
  • 04 Medium Blondes (formerly shade 01 Blondes)
  • 05 Medium Brunettes (formerly shade 02 Brunettes)
  • 08 Ebony

Terracotta Skin ($51.00)

Delivering the corrective coverage of a foundation with the sheerness of a powder, Terracotta Skin allows for a flawless complexion in one step. The silky, lightweight cream powder is composed of soft-focus elastic particles which reflect light in all directions making enlarged pores, fine lines and other imperfections less noticeable. Apply one dab of this sheer, velvety foundation and smooth it over your entire face. The result is unified, corrected skin enhanced with a healthy glow.

  • 01 Nude (new)
  • 02 Blonde
  • 03 Brunette

Terracotta Sun Scrub ($65.00)

This luscious exfoliator is the perfect accessory to an even, long-lasting tan. Effective for all stages of tanning, the Terracotta Sun Scrub not only prepares skin for tanning but helps it retain its sun-kissed look longer. The secret to its success lies in the formula, comprised of 3 different particles. Upon contact with water, the 3 particles transform the oil-based gel into a body milk which work to remove dead cells, massaging the skin and leaving it satin-smooth and radiant, the perfect conditions for tanning. Once the skin is sun-kissed, the Terracotta Sun Scrub works to enhance your tan by increasing its intensity and luminosity.

Terracotta Sunless Self-Tanning Gel ($52.00)

Remarkable for its ultra-penetrating texture, this two-in-one tinted gel provides a double action: it offers the illusion of an instant tan and moisturized, evened-out skin. Using a subtle concentration of DHA and organic Argan oil, the Terracotta Sunless Self-Tanning Gel simply needs to be smoothed over the body—the only evidence of a sun-kissed illusion is the bottle! Best of all, the Terracotta Sunless Self-Tanning Gel is visible after only 1 hour, but lasts up to 4 days.

Terracotta Jambes de Gazelle ($59.00)

Lightly scented with the fragrance of tiare flower, this tinted spray mist refreshes the legs and leaves them feeling cooled and relaxed. Drying instantly, Jambes de Gazelle provides beautiful legs without any risk of clothing stain or product transfer, yet washes off with soap and water.

Terracotta Sun Serum ($59.00)

The resounding success of Sun Serum has inspired a new bottle, the design inspired by Guerlain’s classic Coconut Oil Soap. The bottle will also be fitted with a metalized brown dropper to ensure the amounts dispersed are exactly as needed. This remarkable serum is your loyal ally in acquiring, deepening and prolonging a tan. Adding a few drops of this honey-coloured serum to your normal skincare product will instantly transform it into a tan booster, fifteen times higher than that of other tan boosters. In the palm of your hand, blend 2 drops with your normal skincare product (or 4 drops in your body care product) and apply. That’s all there is to it! Day by day, you will gradually acquire a lovely, long-lasting healthy glow.

Availability: Guerlain’s Terracotta collection is available beginning March 2013 at select locations of Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Bloomingdales and Bergdorf Goodman.
