I have fond memories of Guerlain. I had a post-college roommate who practically bathed in the stuff. If she wasn’t tanning she was applying mass quantities of Guerlain’s Terracotta Bronzing Powder on herself. Well, several years later not only is Guerlain known for that epic product, but for some amazing makeup as well.
Now Guerlain is celebrating the arrival of summer with a new color-drenched, incredibly chic Terracotta Collection! With colors ranging from ocean blue, flamboyant orange and ardent browns, this ultra-trendy collection invites you to experience a stunning technicolor voyage. Introducing the limited-edition “Terra Inca” collection! Let’s take a look shall we?
Terra Inca Star Powder (pictured above)
Terra Inca Star Powder is composed of two subtly pearl shades: a highlighting golden beige and a bronze-tinted pink. Together these shades will embellish your complexion while warming the skin with an iridescent glow. Combine it with Terracotta bronzing powder to illuminate tanned complexions or use on its own for a natural glow. Or apply Terra Inca Star Powder to curves of the face to add instant radiance to the complexion or to the décolleté and shoulders for a natural shimmer. $70
Lots of flash for the cash! I am totally in love with this eyeshadow palette! Guerlain interlaced, intense colors and sprinkled them with golden arabesques. Like colorful Incan qompi fabrics woven from shadows and pigments, the Terre Indigo eyeshadow unites all of their tones into a single palette. A vibrant orange, an intense blue, a deep brown and a lighter brown, speckled with a pale golden tone, can be used together or separately to match your every desire and mood. These soft, light powders caress the eyelids with a velvety touch for a natural or sophisticated result that is always mesmerizing. $59
• “Simply chic”: apply the light brown tone to the eyelid, layer the orange shade on the upper part, then give more intensity to the eyes by applying the darker brown to the outer corner of the eye.
• “Trendy”: apply the orange shadow to the eyelid fold, sweep a single blue tone over the eyelid and add a small amount of light brown to the outer corner of the eye.
• “Fiesta Vibe”: apply the orange tone to the entire eyelid, add the blue shadow to the eyelid fold, then apply the light brown shade along the lashes and the dark brown shade under the lower lashes. Dressed in a golden glimmer, sea sparkles and sunlight, the eyes are ready to show off a bold look!
Ombre Fusion Cream Eyeshadow
Ombre Fusion Cream Eyeshadow is a unique creation that offers the softness of a powder, the richness of a cream and the lightness of water all in one.

Just in time for summer and plenty of scorching kisses, Guerlain presents three new Terracotta Gloss creations.
