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.

    omggggg.. this makes me NEED summmmmmmer now.

  3. Hipona

    I need this kajal, Pondichery lip gloss and (maybe) bronzer in light!
    I don’t like Natalia Vodianova as Guerlain’s new image.

  4. Oh.My.God. I thought the last collection was stunning but somehow managed to avoid it but this one? Eek!

  5. Shefali

    This is gorgeous!!! I’m really interested in those LE mineral shadows. The color names are awesome!

  6. Shayla

    WOW. Those ARE nice promotion pics!

  7. Dana

    I will probably be skipping this collection….but their promo photos are very well done. Except the one of the model. I don’t recognize her, but a woman with her collarbones jutting out like that don’t make me want to buy what she’s selling. :/

  8. I got the liner already…think I’ll check out the glosses. They look really nice! I agree – spectacular pictures!

  9. rowan

    want…need…everything. hehe

    The model is Natalia Vodianova. She is 27 years old and a mother of three. Can you believe it? Forbes listed her as the 7th highest paid model of both 2007 & 2008. She grew up in an impoverished area in Russia and used to help her mother sell fruits in the street until she enrolled in a modelling agency at the age of 15. She is now residing in UK and a known philanthropist. She is the founder of Naked Heart Foundation, a philanthrophy which is dedicated to improving the lives of children in urban Russia. Isn’t she great?

    • Yeah, I definitely love Natalia! She really is a beauty! I’m sure she’s only so thin with her collarbones jutting out that way (like other commenters have mentioned) to keep up with the industry. Plus, it seems like she’s pushing her shoulders forward, accentuating that.

      Either way, she’s amazing!!

      I really like this collection, but too pricey for me!

        I love Natalia Vodianova! She is gorgeous! Her features are perfect for beauty shots. Is she with Guerlain this year? Last year she was with Chanel and I love all the promo pics.

  14. BabyDollB

  15. I love Guerlain for the elegant packaging :) The logo itself looks very exclusive n glamour. I want ! :p

  16. cloudburst

    I’m kind of surprized they didn’t release a few new shades of the eye kohl, anyways I’m interested in seeing the mineral eye kohl & the matte gloss. I think the promo ad is very beautiful & its nice to see natural matte makeup.

  17. Ashley

    Matt Gloss? Intresting. I would really like to try these, plus the color on the model is gorgeous.

  18. classic
