Guerlain Terracotta Collection for Summer 2011

Terracotta Bronzing Powder ($49.00)

In 2011, the Terracotta Bronzing Powder continues to stake its claim in history with a new contemporary case and an expanded range of 8 shades. Guerlain drew upon 25 years of expertise and innovation to recreate shades to match each woman’s natural tan – the same legendary texture, but with a new gradation of shades. For Blondes – 3 pink-toned shades: 00, 02 and 04. For Brunettes – 4 golden-toned Shades: 01, 03, 05, 07. For Dark Skin – a touch of copper: 08

Terracotta Skin ($49.00)

The sheer bronzing coverage of Terracotta powder with the perfecting action of a foundation. It contains perfectly spherical soft-focus elastic powders that reflect light in all directions, blurring imperfections. The skin looks matt and velvety. There are volatile oils that evaporate on application and leave only a “second-skin” on the face. The elastomere gel creates a creamy and comfortable veil. Available in Blondes, Brunettes.

Terracotta Jambes de Gazelles ($59.00) (Limited Edition)

A fresh tinted mist that gives the legs a natural mistake-proof bronzing look that lasts all day long and washes off. Available in Blondes, Brunettes.

Terracotta Serum ($59.00) (Limited Edition)

A serum, highly concentrated in Tan Booster active, and enriched with a soothing complex, to add to any moisturizer.

availability: March 15th, 2011

    Looking forward to trying the Terracotta Powder for blondes — Guerlain does subtle bronzer for us palefaces for very well – but disappointed by the limited collection. No eyeshadow quads, lipglosses, or lipsticks? Guerlain’s summer colors are usually great.

  2. The packaging looks awesome. Not into bronzing/tanning products, though.

  3. This serum is just like the tan booster from Colistar… not really unique :(

    Wow. One shade for dark skin tones, but seven for everyone else. Nice.

    Oh my… I think I want everything! Except for the serum. Love Guerlain!

    The price is just ridiculous!

    I’ve got 3 or 4 bronzers (2 that I really like) and that’s really enough for me…I don’t go for the tanned look very much anyway, except on my legs.

    I’ve always wanted to try their bronzing powders. I’m forever lusting after their Four Seasons one because it’s so versatile and matte but its soooo expensive. It’s around $40 more than their normal bronzers (less or same amount). It just doesn’t make sense :/
    Although, my skin colour doesn’t change that much during the year, maybe I should just go with a one colour one. :)

    I used their bronzing powder 4 seasons last year and actually prefer it to Nars Laguna

  11. looks fabulous! when does it launch and where can i buy?

    Could you please do some swatches of the bronzer?!
    I have a very fair complexion, do you think the 00 bronzer would suit my skin tone?

  13. Hi I am presently using Hoola Bronzer and like the colour it gives me but i do build it up a little so basically like to be tanned looking, i am wanting to try the Guerlain Terracotta bronzing powder but am unsure what shade i should use? does anyone have any suggestions, i have recently gone dark from being quite blonde if that helps, thanks Mary

    I have dark skin and currently use the Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzing Powder. While the price is definitely steep, I am in love with this product.

    Instead of using it to sculpt and highlight, I use it on my entire face. Using this bronzer together with Bobbi Brown spot concealer, I no longer wear foudation as part of my day-to-day look.

    I constantly receive compliments on how my skin has a healthy glow.

    I have yet to try the regular Terracotta bronzing powder. Not sure it will have the same effect as the 4 Seasons as the 4 Seasons has “pure gold and SPF 10″ It would be great if it did, so I could pay $49 instead of $74.
