Guerlain SS/16: Terracotta Bronze

I’m a little late putting this up… what with Mother’s Day weekend and what not. Guerlain released its latest addtion to the LE Terraccotta Bronzers and this one does not disappoint. It’s darker than it’s predecessors, and leans more toward Terracotta Brunettes. In the past, there’s been a distinct ‘pink’ hue to the bronze portion, but this one is very brown and slightly orange, with a coral highlight and a gold overlay.

The brush is sold separately and is totally not necessary but c’mon look at it! Sooo pretty. A girl and her makeup…

Anyway.

The outer color is on the left, and the coral center on the right. Until that gold shimmer fotd guerlain bronze 1comes off (I might just get rid of it completely before using it again), the finish is VERY golden.

It lends a ‘soft focus’ to the face that’s really beautiful. On my warm skin it’s more complementary than contrast. But I recommend getting rid of the golden overlay so that you can harness the full potential of this bronzer. Otherwise you end up with more gold than anything else.

Why are my brows bushy again? I JUST got them done last week. SMH I blame yoga. You know inversions make the blood rush to your hair follicles and hairs just grow all disrespectful and out of control. Damn Downward Facing Dog. Thank goodness I don’t have a beard ’cause I’d be a straight cave woman by now…

EOTD: Simple Bronze

I used the bronze color from the Kevyn Aucoin Duo in #208. It performed beautifully.
