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.

Temptalia Asks You

What do you look for in your holy grail moisturizer? What does it have to have?

Temptalia's Answer.

I need mine to be ultra moisturizing without being too thick. I like mine to be quick-absorbing, too–I hate having to wait for a moisturizer to sink in for longer than five minutes. Good value is always nice, too!

Hey all! It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? Life’s been pretty hectic, but it seems to be calming down a bit–well, at least enough to be manageable–so hopefully I’ll get some more looks posted for y’all soon enough. (BTW, I’m wearing Givenchy’s new Kajal liner–super sultry black–and Le Metier de Beaute’s Dubai gloss!)

I meant to whiten my teeth before I went to NYC, but life got in the way, but it worked out. I’m participating in Crest’s Get Bright White Challenge. Each week for four weeks, I, along with several other bloggers from Glam’s Publisher Network, will be posting pictures of our smiles as we test out Crest’s new Whitestrips Advanced Seal whitening system.

I’ve tried several other whitening systems (Crest, Rembrandt, etc.), so I’m not new to the at-home whitening game. However, I’m really looking for to trying out these new ones. You’re supposed to even be able to drink water while you wear ‘em! I’m a regular Starbucks’ goer, so you know I need some whitening power. I am SO hoping for a blindingly white smile at the end of the four week trial!

Have any of you tried the new Crest Whitestrips Advanced Seal?

Project Revamp

If you could revamp MAC Eyeshadow Palettes/Quads (Pre-made), what would you change? What would you keep the same? How would you make it an even better product?
