Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder Brush (2014) Review & Photos

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder Brush (2014) ($42.00) is a short-handled, red-bristled brush designed to be used with Guerlain’s Terracotta Bronzing Powders. The brush head is 1.5 inches / 3.5 centimeters in length, 1.5 inches / 3.5 centimeters in width, and 1.5 inches / 3.5 centimeters in thickness. It had a total length of just over 4 inches / 10.5 centimeters with an open ferrule. The bristles are scratchy, and the brush, overall, is poorly cut–it’s just not even at all. I had shedding for the first four washes, but after that, it did seem to abate. I noticed some dye bled for the first three washes as well. At this price point, there are too many higher-quality options to consider this one (and there are more affordable options that are better, too).

I’m holding my breath and hoping that this means you’re about to review the bronzer! 🙂

As for the brush, it looks poorly made even in photographs.

I touched this brush in stores, it was like you said, scratchy and poorely cutted.
Everytime i touched a Guerlain brush, i was désappointed.
I really dont understand why they are persisting to make this quality brushes. Better dont make them.
It’s frustrating that their quality dont match with the quality of it’s other products.

I completely agree, I was so disappointed when I had a look at this brush at the Guerlain counter. It looks so cute in the photos with its bright red hairs but running it along the back of my hand I was horrified at how scratchy and uneven the hairs looked. Not what I’d expect from Guerlain at all. This brush from Koyudo (not affiliated) is a bit more expensive but ten times better and more pleasant to use. Even the synthetic options from Real Techniques of Eco Tool feel nicer than this Guerlain brush.

It still surprises me to this day how Guerlain can make such poor quality brushes. I bought a pink bristled one like the one you had to be used with Meteorites and it was the worst quality ever. Super scratchy hair, shed lots, just terrible. It was pretty to look at and that’s about it. I ended up throwing mine out and I see nothing has changed, this was years ago. Terrible, they really should make an effort to make better brushes, such a waste.

Very pretty brush. But, I don’t want something that is going to bleed dye for 3 washing. I also expect a pretty well cut brush for this price. This is an example of paying for a name.
