Top Reviews



it doesn't run or streak and your skin looks smooth, even and beautiful after spraying this on (lightly)

- Sephora User

this make-up is so soft and smooth it's hard to believe you have it on, except that your skin looks smoother and healthier

- Debenhams User

staying power


love the shade and lasts all day even going to the gym

- Sephora User

this is exactly what i was looking for something that would complement my warm yellow skin tone it's this browser is a perfect shade of terracada and it last all day and night

- Nordstrom User


blends well

it is the perfect color for a golden blond - 02 is rather dark so you only need a light dusting - it should last forever - it blends and looks like you've been in tahiti for a month

- Overstock User

when i first tried, i was nervous when i saw the color because it looked darker than my skin tone but since i applied i could see it blended to my skin really nice

- Sephora User



this has great coverage and stays light and does not look "cakey"

- Nordstrom User

applies evenly and lightly, not heavy looking

- Saksfifthavenue User



the texture is very silky, it glides on easily and leaves my skin smooth, matte to the touch and looking flawless and radiant

- Debenhams User

they texture is so soft and blendable

- Sephora User


does not have fallout

no fallout when i use my brush

- Sephora User

once applied it feels powdery or matte

- Sephora User



for anyone who needs help choosing a color, i wear gobi in sheer glow foundation and shade 1 of this bronzer (clair brunettes) is perfect for me

- Sephora User

i love the coverage and sheerness, and my skin feels great

Yes, it is a foundation!

I'm a pale redhead with ivory skin that gets red. While at the Lenox Mall Sephora, I spoke with the Guerlain rep, also a pale redhead who said that she uses this product, who recommended this product and applied it for me. It feels amazing and takes very little, but requires a lot of blending. I've been told before that red hair technically falls into the blonde category, but don't know that this is a good shade if you're pale. I wish they'd make it in actual shades, not the terracotta colors as not everyone changes to a bronze/tan shade in the sun. And, if you look at terracotta pots, they are orange. I agree with the reviewer who said it looks better indoors than out. In natural light, my skin is pretty orange and if you're in humid climates, it doesn't have staying power. Those who say it is not foundation confuse me as it is labeled a foundation and the company rep marketed it as a foundation. « less

This is my holy grail bronzer, all the bronzer a I have used in the past stay on very splotchy no matter how I apply the product. But this product just goes on beautifully and is not too pigmented where when u apply it it's hard to blend, but not too little either where you have to apply way to many layers. I want to buy like 10 in case they ever stop making them, you have to try this! Also can I just say that the casing is so gorgeous!

Amazing stuff!

I tried a sample of the Brunette. It looks way too dark (even for my olive skin tone) when I opened it, but it is so sheer that it gives my skin a very nice, natural, healthy glow and it evens out my skin tone that no more foundation is needed. It feels light and silky and stay on all day. I love this stuff! I'm not so pleased by its price, but given how nice it works, I won't be surprised if I buy a full-sized one.

Absolutely LOVE this product!

Like other reviewers, when I first open the sample packet & placed a small amount on my hand I was like, "oh no, this can't be good!" I got the 02 (brunette) and when placed on my hand, the color looked very dark in a mousse-like consistency. However, to my surprise, the product blends in very well using my fingertips and the result was a very beautiful & natural-looking tan. It really does have a "velvety powder finish" that makes my skin feel really smooth & glow. I was so amazed and in love with the end result that I went to the store and bought the full size, despite the price tag that placed a dent in my college student budget.I don't think this product gives a lot of coverage as a conventional "foundation"--it's more of a tinted moisturizer than anything so I don't really recommend this product for coverage. This product is very lightweight, but that's what I really love about it. I don't have perfect clear skin, but I don't have any major blemishes either so this product gives just enough coverage to make my skin look flawless.Besides the price, the other con to this product is that it tends to rub off easily on clothing (bf has complained when I place my face on his shirt lol) which isn't a really big deal to me since it comes off after laundry. Also, although it's pricey, you really only need to use a small amount (~1/2 a dime) to cover your entire face & neck--that's how much I use anyway.Overall, I highly recommend this product! « less

I Wish this was larger packaging for the price but I am still in LOVE with Terracota spray. I wore this at the pool with my son and it didn't run or streak it stayed on until I WASHED it off with soap and water! It's wonderful for those of us that no longer sun bathe but still love that sun kissed glow,
