Guerlain Terracotta Light, Sunkissed Healthy Glow Powder…………02 Natural Cool.

Hi Everyone,
I wanted to give this product a review of it’s own. Reason being is, i love Guerlains Terracotta range.

The bronzing products offer a beautiful natural finish, which gives the skin such a healthy glow without the orange effect. They are exceptional even by high end standards.
I have bought a few products over the years and use them all. They are either face bronzers or highlighters; both which i love so much.
The newest offering in the Terracotta range is the sunkissed healthy glow powder.

Guerlain did a similar one a couple of years ago with the Terracotta Joli Teint powder duo. I bought the 00 Light Blondes, which was a little pale for me. I still like it as an all over setting powder though.

Terracotta Light Sunkissed Healthy Glow Powder.
This powder is a cross between the Joli Teint powder and the four seasons bronzing powder. It isn’t quite a full on bronzer and yet it offers the colour with a hint of pink. There is an overspray of shimmer that doesn’t transfer.

The finish is very satin without being glittery or too much on the highlighting side either. This makes it perfect for a healthy glow but without an obvious bronze effect.
The 02 Natural Cool is just that. It is a step up from the 00 shades that are too light for me, even though i have light skin. This is just perfect. If you want more colour, 03 deeper shades are going to be ideal for you.
The colour stays put for a good eight hours too without fading. I noticed a light fade once my skin became quite oily at the end of the day.

The great thing about this small compact is, its only 10gm in weight, great for the handbag to use throughout the day.
I found the best way for me was to apply with a large fluffy brush and i used a smaller one for under the cheekbone to give a touch of definition.

I really like this one because it offers a slight healthy finish to the skin with a satin glow. A bit like you have been outside all day and have just caught a glow of the sun but not the full on red face.
In conjuction with this product, i also use the Terra Ora highlighter to give further enhancement to the top of the cheekbone. A perfect match.

Final Verdict.
If you own any other Terracotta bronzing powders, you would probably not need this one; however, it does offer a more natural healthy glow rather than a full on bronzing effect.
Great for paler skin tones and blends very easily giving a healthy soft focus satin finish.
Use 03 shades if you have medium colour skin tone. Both finely milled powders offer an apricot and pink tone too.
Overall, a nice edition to the range and my handbag for top ups.
Which Terracotta products do you own and love? Take care and i will see you all soon. 😉

    I have had my eye on this product! I have 2 of the Guerlain bronzers and i really do love both of them. I’m thinking of trying this one but I cannot figure out which shade I should get. I want the healthy glow but I have to be so careful because so bronzers make me orange. The Guerlain ones never have but if I get the wrong shade, I support I could become an Oompa Loompa. This one really looks natural on you. Super pretty.
    How did you pick the shade? Did you test them in the store or did you decide just looking at swatches on line?

      Hi Janine,
      Thanks for your response. I tried in the store but then ordered online because there was money off.
      I love this shade, subtle but gives a really nice finish.
      If you don’t want an orange effect, i would go for the shades that use pink in them like i have here rather than the orange/apricot ones.
      Mine is also a cool toned shade, which gives a more brown finish. Love it so much. Hope this helps in your decision xxxx
