Guerlain Sun in the City Collection for Spring/Summer 2012

There is always a time in the middle of every winter when it feels like we haven’t felt the warmth of sunlight in months. While we can’t change the weather, Guerlain is the master of creating a summer sun effect on your complexion, offering a vibrant, radiant glow even in the coldest months.

Terracotta Sun in the City ($70.00) (Limited Edition)

There is always a time in the middle of every winter when it feels like we haven’t felt the warmth of sunlight in months. While we can’t change the weather, Guerlain has always been the master of creating a summer sun effect on your complexion, offering a vibrant, radiant glow even in the coldest of months. New Terracotta Sun in the City is the closest thing to sweeping a ray of sunlight across your face.

This gorgeous palette features brand new compact production technology combined with an innovative powder formula to create an astonishingly light powder. Intensely concentrated gold mother-of-pearl particles capture and reflect light to create a natural-looking radiance without giving an overly iridescent effect. Terracotta Sun in the City has a textured finish to mimic the sun’s rays and feels so silky to the touch it could almost be mistaken for a cream. The universal golden shade is a true skin-enhancing top coat that will leave you with a golden, luminous finish to make you forget the winter doldrums.

Terracotta Blush ($41.00)

The ideal blush creates a slight tan in the complexion that looks as if it is glowing from within and until now, that blush didn’t exist. With the introduction of new Terracotta Blush, Guerlain has perfectly imitated the skin’s natural blushing effect with an easy-to-use formula that leaves the complexion fresh and illuminated for all types of tanned skin. The key is Guerlain’s mother-of-pearl concentrate that adds instant luminosity to the cheekbones for a naturally flushed, youthful glow. Three application options to create your perfect glow: on the cheekbones like a blush, on all prominent areas of the face as a highlighter to sculpt the contours, or over the eyelids as a summer shadow, perfect for sunny nude make-up.

  • Sunny Pink (02) For blondes, this perfect pink will enhance the rosy color of their fair cheeks
  • Spicy Coral (03) For brunettes, this coral shade will add a bright radiance to their olive skin

Terracotta Retractable Bronzing Brush ($39.00)

In its incredibly chic black matte metal case, you will find the perfect bristle density brush for applying just the right amount of Terracotta bronzing powder. It guarantees flawless, streak-free color.

Terracotta Light Bronzing Powder ($50.00)

  • Sun Blondes (04) Pink accents and soft tanned tones, beautifully enhance the naturally rosy color of fair skin
  • Sun Brunettes (05) Enriched with coral touches and warm shades, it adds bright radiance to the golden tan of olive skin

availability: March 2012 at select locations of Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Bergdorf Goodman and Sephora.com.
