Guerlain Blonde Terracotta Bronzer

Guerlain Blonde Halee Bronzer

Anyway, Blonde contains five different shades that come together to create a red-toned bronze.  It’s designed for our fairer, blonde-haired friends, but it’ll work just as nice on our warmer, brunette-haired friends, too–because I am the latter and find this lovely on my skin.  I tend to wear it more as a bronzer, but it’s subtle without being orange and the shimmer gives you a little glowiness that’s perfect for summer.   I wore it in a very natural look, and I felt like it worked incredibly well to give my cheeks a little definition, glow, and that I-just-got-back-from-vacation look (even though I went nowhere!).

It’s a very fine-milled powder, so it’s subtle and easy to use without going overboard–but you can layer it for a greater intensity.  It also has fine shimmer that goes through the compact (no overspray here!) that gives skin a healthier, more luminous look without looking like a glitter ball.  A huge bonus is that this bronzer photographs really well and natural, too!  I may have to check out the Brunette version to see how it stacks up, but Blonde totally wow-ed me (and I’m not even a bronzer person!).

The pricing is just about what I’d expect from Guerlain, but at least they don’t hold back on the quantity–they give you just a little more than the average bronzer, but it’s not significantly more.  Nevertheless, sometimes you’ll see higher prices and lesser quantities, so I always like to see the two still in line.  The packaging is also very pretty–it’s a glossy reddish-bronze with a shimmering sparkle almost!
