Guerlain Terracotta Brunette 02 Light Sheer Bronzing Powder

Product Description: Whether you're a fair blonde or a dark brunette, you'll love Guerlain's newest formulation of classic, sun-kissed powder. Ideal for all skin types, this ingenious mosaic of five shades of compact powder includes a complexion highlighter to create a natural-looking glow.

Brunette 02 is a bronzing powder with a mosaic of five warm shades. There are three matte colors, a medium milk chocolate brown, a deep brown & a bronzed brown (terracotta). The other two colors are highlighting shades that contain frost/shimmer. One is a frosted peach and the other has a bronze base with golden shimmer. When all of the shades are smoothed together, the result is a warm bronze terracotta with a slight sheen. The shimmer is very natural and isn't very prominent when on the cheeks.

Below, is the bronzer swatched on my hand. I applied it lightly on the left & a little heavier on the right. Applied lightly, it is a light golden bronze - perfect to add a little warmth to the face. Applied heavily, the bronzer gives much more of a bronze terracotta tone.

I received this bronzer in a swap earlier in the week and I've been using it for the past couple of days and I really like it! I'll be updating this post as I wear it to let you know what my thoughts are.

Have you tried any Guerlain bronzers? How did/do you like them?

  2. I've really never tried out anything by Guerlain.. Once in a while I'll see a review on one of their products, and they always seem pretty positive.
    I look forward to hearing an update on if you continue to really like it!
