If you’re a fan of Guerlain makeup and skincare, you’ll no doubt be aware of their famous Terracotta product range. For SS17, Guerlain have added a few fab new products to their Terracotta collection, including new collector’s items, basics and limited editions, that each promise to illuminate skin with a natural golden glow and revive its radiance…
In 2017, Terracotta has been reinvented and Guerlain has created must-have new products that leave us feeling good inside and out all year round, with or without the sun. A collection offering a host of face and body rituals, allowing every woman to obtain a natural tan whenever she wishes – while waiting for the sun to appear or under its rays; adjust the intensity for made-to-measure colour; and choose a matte or shimmer finish.
Starting with Terracotta Jolies Jambes (£45.00) – literally meaning ‘pretty legs’, this is Guerlain’s first perfecting and blurring tinted fluid especially for legs. I’d describe the formula as a medium weight fluid, which gives the coverage of a light foundation. Shade Clair / Light which I have gives pale legs a beautiful natural looking glow, whilst instantly blurring away minor blemishes and skin imperfections. The idea kind of reminds me of Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs (which is a spray) – this however is a cream, and it has the most beautiful summery scent with notes of Vanilla and Tiare Flower – it really is gorgeous! The formula also resists sweat and rubbing and is transfer-proof, and to remove, you simply wash it away in the shower with soap.
For the body, I also have the Terracotta Nourishing Dry Oil (£41.50) – this is a lightweight dry oil for the face, body and hair. Again with the lovely Tiare Flower scent, the Terracotta Nourishing Dry Oil is enriched with Sweet Almond, Camelina and Limnanthus Seed Oil to soothe, protect and nourish skin, as well as a Tan Booster Complex to prepare and enhance the skin’s natural tan. Ideal for all skin types, the Guerlain Terracotta Nourishing Dry Oil promises to cocoon skin in intense nourishment.
Guerlain advises to apply a few drops to the face and body to give a satiny finish, or after sun exposure to enhance the skin’s natural tan. Or to use on hair, apply to the lengths for a wet-hair effect, or as a mask for intense nourishment.
I also have a couple of new Terracotta makeup products. For SS17, Guerlain has improved the formula of their limited edition Terracotta Sun Tonic Bronzing Powder (£36.50) so it’s now waterproof – meaning there’s no need to worry about your bronzer wearing off this summer. The delicately milled formulation creates an ultra-fine film to give skin a flawless finish, providing your complexion with long-lasting comfort and moisture, and it’s also been enriched with a Tan Booster Complex, to activate, boost and prolong your tan. I have shade 03 Natural Brunettes which is slightly too dark for my super fair complexion, but would be perfect for those with a light to medium skin tone.
And lastly, I have one of the new Kiss Kiss Shaping Cream Lip Colours (£27.50). Two bold new hues have been introduced to the KissKiss range for SS17, including 567 Pink Sunrise, a romantic rosy red, and 542 Orange Peps which is an intense bright orange shade.
The limited edition Guerlain KissKiss Lipstick shades promise to dress the lips in bold, comfortable colour thanks to its satin-finish and non-drying texture. These lipsticks are enriched with plumping Hyaluronic Acid Spheres and Mango Butter, to immediately smooth and nourish, for a perfected lip look.
Personally, I’m a big fan of bright lipstick shades for summer, any bright oranges or hot pinks will always look good with a tan, so this intense orange shade is the perfect addition to your SS17 lipstick wardrobe.
Guerlain’s Terracotta range is available now at Debenhams.
