Guerlain Terracotta Terra Nerolia Bronzer Review

First of all, let's take a minute to appreciate the design of this beautiful bronzer. It is absolutely stunning! It took me a while to actually start using it properly, because I didn't want to ruin the embossed pattern with gorgeous gold shimmer :) If you are not a fan of shimmer, don't worry- it is just a thin overlay and it will come off with the first 2-3 uses. The rest of the bronzer is matte and it adds a gorgeous glow to the skin.

Once I got over the beautiful packaging and embossing of the powder, I fell in love with the formula of the bronzer. It is very finely milled and feels almost creamy to the touch. I apply it with my Real Techniques Blush Brush and I find it very easy to blend. The compact features a medium brown bronzer colour on the outside and a peachy/coral blush in the middle. They look beautiful on my skin tone (especially when I have a tan), but I am afraid that the Terra Nerolia bronzer would be too warm for pale skin. I love using it on my face and body to add some warmth to my skin and enhance my tan. The lasting power of the bronzer and blusher is quite good and I usually need a touch-up after 8 hours. ( I have combination skin). If you use a setting spray, it could last on your skin all day. 

On top of that, the Terra Nerolia Bronzer smells like Guerlain Aqua Ellegoria Nerolia Bianca fragrance and I cannot stop sniffing it :) haha. It is the nicest smelling makeup product I own and I am now tempted to buy the beautiful Guerlain fragrance. Good marketing move from Guerlain :)

Overall, I am totally obsessed with this beautiful bronzer and I would definitely recommend it to those who like to enhance their tan and add a warm glow to their face and decolletage.

  1. wow the packaging and design of this product is gorgeous!

  2. Such a gorgeous design, I'd be the same as you and not want to use it haha :) xx


  3. Such a beautiful product. My friend got the standard Mosaic bronzer and the top got a weird, waxy sheen on it and she could barely use it.

    Hopefully that was a one off because I'm desperate for this after seeing it!

    Great post lovely.

  9. Guerlain packaging always tend to draw my attention~ They are so lovely. I have read really good things about this bronzer around different blogs but it is so nice to see how it looks on the face. I really like the nice healthy glow it gives and it looks so pretty on you!
    The price is similar to my all time favourite NARS laguna, so i might give this a try once mine has run out :)

    Thank you for the review~ Have a lovely day!

  10. Wow, I love that design! Wouldn't want to use it, haha! I've never tried any of the Guerlain make up products so this would be a great one for me to try as I love my tan and anything to help enhance it, I'm all about that life! Great informative post and it looks lovely on you!

  11. Hello :)
    It's beautiful really!!
    I am very fair and my skin has an under pink tone, and my problem with bronzer is that they are always too red or too orange! So they enhance the pink color on my skin!
    But maybe I should try a Guerlain one, they are Bronzer specialists!!!


  12. This powder looks too gorgeous to touch! I love Clarins <3

  13. Ah this looks stunning, damn me for being so pale!!! xxx

  14. The presentation of this product is second to none, it is truly stunning :)
