Guerlain Terracotta Collection Review, Photos, Swatches


Paradise Sand, Jungle Dust

Guerlain’s Terracotta Collection was an early summer sleeper collection. It consisted of products from bronzing powders to lip balms to mineral eyeshadows. Here’s a review of several of the products from the collection! :)

Paradise Sand and Jungle Dust Mineral Eyeshadows ($35.00 each) are loose, mineral eyeshadows kept in a convenient package. You twist the top off, and when you pull it out, there’s a wand attached to it, and it is the wand that picks up the color. This packaging makes it so I don’t get a big puff of mineral makeup all over my sink counter, for which I am quite happy!

I absolutely LOVED the Gloss Cashmere Velvet Matte Glosses ($28.00 each). They came in Rose Pondichery, Beige Bengali, and Rouge Sultan. These are really the stand out products from the launch. Rose Pondichery is a rosey-beige; Beige Bengali is a deeper brownish-beige shade; and Rouge Sultan is an unforgivably scarlet red.

I did also try High Shine Soothing Lip Balm ($30.00 each) in Coeur Caramel and Cocoa Love. Both shades are extremely sheer, but they are emollient and hydrating on lips. I can’t say that they’re worth $30 a pop, but they’re nice if you’ve got the money to spend. I’d much rather put my budget towards the glosses from this launch!
