Terracotta Gold Light

Guerlain Terracotta Gold Light Holiday 2017 Terracotta Bronzing Powder ($60.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and faint, golden pearl over a satin finish.

Per the brand, this holiday’s limited edition bronzing powder is supposed to give a “sunkissed, lit-from-within glow.” It has the brand’s signature Terracotta scent, though it was more moderate than other iterations have been–it didn’t flood my room with the scent after being opened for a half hour! The texture was soft but on the dustier side, which made it more prone to sheering out and harder to build up. I could see this working as a buildable bronzer on very light commplexions and a barely-there highlighter on deeper, very golden/yellow-based complexions. On my complexion (light-medium or so), I felt like it highlighted more than bronzed, but it was just the right tone and depth that it almost made other areas appear contoured. The powder wore nicely on my skin for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Gold Pearl

Guerlain Gold Pearl Meteorites Pearls ($65.00 for 0.88 oz.) is a translucent, light beige powder with warmer undertones and flecks of larger, light gold sparkle. The effect was slightly smoothing with stray, visible sparkles on my skin. The latter effect is not something evreyone is going to appreciate, so keep the sparkle factor in mind if noticeable shimmer or glitter on the skin is a deal-breaker!

Per Guerlain, the limited edition holiday version of Meteorites is supposed to “warm up the complexion and fight dullness” with “reflect[ing] light.” I actually felt like this year’s powder did a lot less to smooth and blur my skin’s natural texture and pores than past releases, and it did not seem to do much in the way of brightening or warming up my skin tone, though I am warmer in tone and light-medium in color, so the latter wasn’t a surprise (it’s lighter than my skin tone). Over the years, I’ve often found that the subtle effect is something I can tell in person but is less noticeable in photos, but this version definitely doesn’t do as much as past Meteorites Pearls (of which I am normally a fan). There was a slight effect, but we’re taking what was already subtle to a very subtle level. If Meteorites were on your radar, the permanent iteration does a better job.

This year’s version is also a bit smaller than past iterations at 0.70 oz.

Flaming Red (823)

Guerlain Flaming Red (823) Rouge G de Guerlain Lip Color ($58.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a smattering of gold micro-glitter. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer. The texture was lightweight, emollient and slightly creamy without feeling too wet or too slippery on the lips with just a bit of texture from the micro-glitter in the bullet itself. The lipstick sat well on the lips and smoothed out a lot of my lip lines. It wore well for five and a half hours and was nicely hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$58.00/0.12 oz. - $483.33 Per Ounce

The Rouge G formula is supposed to be hydrating with a luminous finish. Long-time readers will know it has been a favorite of mine forever! The part that I find is more unique to Rouge Gs is the finish; there’s a fine pearl that gives it a glossier, shinier sheen that isn’t too slippery. The formula is typically comfortable to wear, nicely hydrating, and lasts four to six hours. It has a floral scent but no discernible taste.

Gold Palette

Guerlain Gold Palette Holiday 2017 Palette ($80.00 for 0.50 oz.) is a new, limited edition eye and cheek palette that contains six eyeshadows and two blushes. Per the brand, the eyeshadows can be used dry for a “natural finish” or wet for a “lustrous result.” The brand specifically mentioned that “the golden shadow can be applied alone or as a topcoat.” They did not call out any of the other eyeshadows, and there was another exceptionally sheer shade (golden beige). The two matte shades did not work well damp (seemed to darken the pan permanently), so I would only advise using the shimmery shades with a dampened brush unless dampening the brush after picking up the powder. The blushes need to have their oversprays removed or else they feel gritty; the underlying powders were fine after that. It’s not the worst palette I’ve tested, and if you’re someone who uses your shimmery eyeshadows damp already, then it might work well for you. If you prefer using your eyeshadows dry, then this one was a real mess to use and wear.
