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!
