Guerlain Terra Azzura Makeup Collection for Summer 2012

Guerlain’s summer 2012 makeup collection Terra Azzura is a collaboration  of Olivier Échaudemaison, Guerlain Creative Director and Laudomia Pucci, Pucci Image Director. It is inspired by a “Winter Capri” print from the Pucci’s achieves.


The powder, which is the star of the collection, combines  Guerlain’s legendary Terracotta powder and Emilio Pucci’s iconic prints. This is a hybrid of  bronzer and blusher with four shades and lightweight formula.

  •  For a natural effect: apply just the bronzing shade all over the face.
  •  For a bronzed complexion: blend the three blusher shades and sweep along the top of the cheekbones to sculpt the face.

The packaging is a rounded form created in ebony-coloured varnished wood,  it also comes with an accessory pouch printed with the Pucci motif.


The cult Guerlain product, Meteorites, which were created in 1987 now also contain  a corrective blue peal in a nod to Pucci.

The results:

  • Corrective effect: blue and pink counter the yellow tones in tired complexions.
  • Skin-evening effect: beige and orange warm up the complexion and create an even tan.
  • Illuminating effect: ivory and white gold are light reflectors without a whitening effect.


  •  01 Paradisio: a cheery, luminous coral pink with a high-lacquer finish. Unfailingly sublime on tanned fingers.
  • 02 Riviera: a powerful electric indigo blue with a subtly metallic finish. Pure rock ‘n’ roll on golden toes.


  • 10 Porto Fino: an incredibly shiny
