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.
