Who doesn't know the famous Guerlain Terracotta? 
They have a new one in their collection: the Terracotta Joli Teint, and that's the one I'm going to tell you about.

The package:
The package is gorgeous. It symbolizes the sun; the round shape, the shine, the color: do you see the resemblance? This box is just pure luxury. Look at the print in the powder: again sun stripes and the Guerlain logo. I really like products like this,. The quality and it's so, so pretty. I get this feeling with all of the Guerlain products. (Have you seen the métérorites collection? Those boxes, aah!)

Guerlain has supercute kabuki brushes, and I really want (need) one, but at the moment I'm using my Zoeva Luxe Face Focus brush. And I kinda feel like they're a match made in heaven. This brush is perfect for illuminating your face, hence perfect for Terracotta!

About the powder:
There are four different shades. Depending on your hair (and skin) color the complimentary pink or apricot powder changes brightness. I have the 01 for Brunettes (clair), but you can just pick the color you like the most of course. 
And oh guys, the scent. The powder smells sooo good! There are freesia and orange blossom notes. They are blended into tonka bean and vanilla notes with sunny facets that embody the essence of Terracotta. You can just call it the essence of a holiday on the beach. Love it!

This terracotta powder can be used in a lot of different ways. Number one (and probably the most used) is as a bronzer of course. Just make the 3-shape on the side of your face and you're good to go, with a healthy sunkissed glow. (Rhyming skills on point, yo.) You can also use it as a blush (I do!), and for a little shaping of your face.

Even though you can see the powder and it's effect clearly on your face with even one stroke, I couldn't photograph the swatches well... The upper swatch is only the brown powder, second one is pink and brown mixed and the last one is the pink part.

The powder is so easy to apply, and it gives such a lovely shaping and glow. I'm fan. 
And I definitely feel like I need to upgrade the Guerlain stash. I need moooore!

The Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint is in stores now, and costs around €45.

What do you think about the new Terracotta powder? 

Love, Rani
