GUERLAIN Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder in 02 Blondes

I cannot believe this is my first Guerlain bronzer. I have been wanting their four seasons bronzer for awhile, and for some reason ended up purchasing this instead. This bronzer is not matte in the slightest and it imparts a wonderful, sheer glow to the skin.

"Whether you're a fair blonde or a dark brunette, you'll love this new sun-kissed powder. This ingenious mosaic of five shades of compact powder, with both matte and pearly effects, can be used to create and adjust a natural, healthy glow."

This bronzer has a mosaic of different colors that all blend together to create a gorgeous golden bronze color to your complexion. This shade is ideal for those with a very pale complexion as it is very light and most likely won't show up on anyone with darker skin. I love it to add just a light hint of bronze to my skin while still looking incredibly natural. I also love the the glow it imparts as I am a lover of all things luminizing. Although this bronzer is very sheer, it is also very buildable so that it allows you to achieve your perfect shade of bronze. I prefer it more on the sheer side, but some might want a more noticeable bronze. And of course, being Guerlain, this bronzer is incredibly soft and finely milled and just melds into your skin to give you a very natural looking glow. 

The compact is also very sturdy and beautifully done. It is small enough to be portable, while large enough that you don't feel they were skimpy. It is great for on-the-go touch-ups throughout the day. It has a generous sized mirror in it as well. I think that both product and container were very well done and I would absolutely recommend this product!

This product can be purchased from Sephora, Neiman Marcus, Nordstron, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks, or any of these retailers online.
