Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzer Review
The Terracotta 4-Seasons Tailor-Made Bronzing Powder by Guerlain is the simply the world’s BEST bronzer!
Not only is the BEST face bronzer on the market of the highest quality and natrual non-orange color, but also because of it’s multi-functional four shades-in-one that allows you to use it ALL YEAR ROUND!
In fact, it’s so good that every 30 seconds, at least one Terracotta Bronzer is sold in the world! And rightfully so, as Guerlain is the foremost authority on giving women a healthy glow, they literally invented it!
In fact, Guerlain prides themselves on being the first in many, including the first to create scientifically based skincare, the first to produce and sell eye kohls & mascara, and the first to produce lipstick back in 1840!
Another example is back in WWII, when Guerlain invented the first bronzing product for the legs, Jambes de Gazelle, as a way of helping women who couldn’t afford panty hose cover their legs. The idea quickly caught on and has now expanded to not only body sprays, self-tans, illuminators, foundations, but to bronzing powders as well of which they have been the forerunner ever since.
And the Terracotta 4-Season Bronzer is in keeping with the same innovation, quality, and exceptional luxury as all Guerlain products that came before it.
First off, may I say, that no one in the beauty industry has impressed me more than Guerlain and nothing has impressed me more than this bronzer!
Guerlain is a luxury Perfume & Beauty house that is not only steeped in history, tradition, integrity, and quality but also elegance, grace, and glamour. Their devotion to beauty, luxury, and sophistication is unsurpassed and has been handed down by generation ever since its inception by Pierre Francois-Pascal Guerlain in 1828!
Trust me, no other products will make you feel more special or more beautiful, than Guerlain. And this bronzer is no exception.
The Terracotta 4-Seasons Bronzer will change the way you see/use bronzers forever!
Like other Guerlain Bronzers, they impart the most subtle, natural, sun-kissed glow without the glitter, glitz, or sparkle that follows with all other bronzers , nor the fake orange glow, or the chalky muddy complexion that some provide. This bronzer in particular effectively gives your complexion a glow without looking like you have anything on at all!
And what makes it most spectacular is that there are four shades to work with; hence the name 4 Seasons, as you could literally wear this bronzer all-year-round, and as we know this is unheard of with other bronzers on the market.
Having the use of four shades allows you to custom blend, giving you the option of subtly highlighting, contouring, or giving an all-over glow. In addition, you can use the lightest shade in the Winter and gradually change shades throughout the year. For highlighting/contouring, this bronzer is incomparable, as it is the only bronzer on the market that is virtually matte with no shimmer or sparkle while still looking radiant. Currently in this industry you would need three different products; one for bronzing, one for contouring and one for highlighting.
With the Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzer you can bronze, highlight, and contour all within the same product!
Not only that, but I also use the four shades for eye-shadows as well, brightening the eyes without looking like I have any makeup on. Or I use the shades to impart a natural glow on other parts of my body like the collar bone and down the fronts of my legs. It is truly miraculous all of the effects that this product can create. And I can’t not forget to mention the exceptional staying power. This bronzer seems to stay put for as long as you want it, while cleaning up with a breeze.
No need to worry either about how to use it, this is the easiest bronzer to use and ensures perfect and consistent results every time. Watch the Guerlain tutorial on How to Apply Bronzer the Easy Way.
And no product would be complete without Guerlain’s exceptional innovation and technology, and here they lace the powder with Pure Gold to not only add anti-oxidant effects but to highlight the skin without being shimmery. Furthermore, the powder has an SPF 10 to protect the skin while basking in the sun. Not to mention the ever-so classy addition of scenting the powder with a secret “Guerlainade” fragrance that is subtle but just enough so that the user can enjoy a little piece of parisian glamour with every stroke.
Although pricey, you get what you pay for and it is well worth the price tag! Worth every penny, not only because of its multi-use function, its year-round practicality, its unique natural shades, it’s ease of use, and its superlative quality; but also because of its value given the ultra-fine milled powder making up to 10 grams of product, which is nearly double what a common bronzer is. Spending your money on a product that will not only be a staple in your year-round beauty routine but that will also make you feel and look more radiant and will last for years, all while imparting a little bit of luxury to your life, is truly the best gift you can give yourself!
