It’s that time of the year when brands start bringing out their pre-summer collections that you can take with you on a mini break or a proper holiday. And, oh my goodness, I really need on of those and have my fingers crossed for one around May time…
So let’s take a look at the gorgeous Guerlain Terracotta collection for this summer, 2013.
TERRACOTTA 4 SEASONS Tailor-made Bronzing Powder £46.50 / €62
This is a cult product already and doesn’t even need an introduction, this year Guerlain added several new shades to the range:
00 NUDE For pale complexions. Comes with a fresh pink blush to illuminate the complexion, 02 NATURAL BLONDES, 03 NATURAL BRUNETTES, 08 EBONY For dark complexions. Comes with a red blush.
Other shades are: 04 MEDIUM BLONDES and 05 MEDIUM BRUNETTES.
00 Nude sounds amazing!
Olivier Échaudemaison application tips:
“Apply your Terracotta powder by tracing a figure “3” on each side of the face: from the forehead down towards the cheeks, then down along the jaw line to the chin and down the neck.
For the finishing touch, take a little more Terracotta powder with your brush and sweep it over the raised areas of the face, the places that catch the sun most – the forehead, nose, cheekbones and chin. The result is an instant glow.’
TERRACOTTA SKIN Glow-enhancing perfector £34/€46
This gives you a corrective coverage of a foundation and the sheer transparency of a Terracotta powder, this powdery cream creates perfect make-up results while unifying your complexion and giving it a subtle, healthy glow.
Available in Nude, Blondes and Brunettes.
TERRACOTTA SUN SCRUB Tan-enhancing Scrub – Face and Body £36/ €50
This product smells of tiara flowers, turns into milk when contacts water and contains: natural rice granules that help to remove dead cells, evening out the complexion; microbeads that gently massage the skin to help bring out its natural beauty; fine-textured powder that leaves the skin satin-smooth and glowing, as if wearing a veil of instant radiance.
TERRACOTTA SUN SERUM Tan-Prolonging Complex £40/ €50
Mix several drops of this serum with your skin and body care and it will help you to acquire, deepen and prolong a tan and also to soften and moisturize the skin.

I love the sound of all products but the glowing body cream and the leg mist are probably the coolest products, in my opinion.
