staying power


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

excellent bronzing powder from guerlain, beautiful color, very long lasting and looks so natural, it's worth the price, will definitely buy again

- Myer User


blends well

it blends in with my skin and i love how it adds natural glow without looking orange-y on me

- Sephora User

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



it's light on the skin, and if applied correctly looks really natural not streaky or shimmery

- Sephora User

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

- Nordstrom User



they texture is so soft and blendable

- Sephora User

the texture is fine, soft and very creamy to the touch

- Sephora User


does not have fallout

there's no fallout, and even dropping it usually won't break it

- Sephora User

there is minimal fallout when taking the product onto a brush and the color payoff is phenomenal

- Sephora User



it has a silky smooth texture which is incredible for a powder and provides just the right amount of bronzer so i look sunkissed and not overly bronzed

- Saksfifthavenue User

it works with a full coverage foundation look, my light coverage bb cream or even on bare skin

- Nordstrom 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

this is a lovely sheer bronzer for those who like to customize areas of the face

I purchased crazy bouquet and when I saw them in store I kinda thought I had made a mistake ordering it. Anyways when it came in the mail I raced in to try the blush out. First there is fragrance but like the title says its has a rose tone. Smells pretty. If you don't like fragrance then most likely you won't own anything from Guerlain but eyeshadow because everything has fragrance. Anyways I am NC 35 so I wasn't sure if this blush was going to show up on me or possibly make me look ashy as I'm tan right now and I detected shimmer. The shimmer leans more golden and its micro. On the skin the blush is super easy to blend and not splotchy, pigmentation was nice, not too crazy, just perfect. Even if you get too much product it was easily smoothed around. Just like the description says its very build-able and has this "wash of color" effect. I liked this so much I will be ordering more. Nice sturdy heavy packaging and a velvet case. Beautiful Guerlain « less

Such a let down! I've been eyeing this bronzer for over a year and finally went for it. It arrived today and while the packaging was a bit of a let down (light weight turtle shell- like plastic) the actual powder looked and smelled so elegant. I was initially concerned about the sparkle I saw in the pan but was delighted to see that the shade appeared to be perfect for my medium to tan skin tone. (I got shade 3). Upon swatching it I was not only let down to see that the sparkle definitely shows through A LOT but that the actual powder is virtually TRANSLUCENT! I'm not kidding you could hardly see a thing. I never return products off of just hand swatches so I decided to apply it to my face. I applied the lightest foundation I own and just tried to warm up my skin with this bronzer but still nothing. This little dud is on its way back to the store! Less

To sum up my experience with this foundation; It's good. I recommend it. If you want to know more, however, read on.I am not a fan of powder foundation. It tends to cake in my fine lines, and during the day it will get patchy and eventually leave me with a bare and shiny t-zone. And that is in spite of my skin being dry. To compensate for that however, the rest of my face tend to look like I've dusted a generous amount of flour all over the rest of it, so I'll be the first to admit I was skeptical when upon the launch of Lingerie de Peau powder foundation.As this is Guerlain, the first brand to bring out a cream foundation that I absolutely love (Tenue de Perfection), I had to try it.The sleek black compact provides a generously sized mirror and a soft sponge (though I wish they'd make the sponges available separately as well).I applied the powder on top of my L'or primer from the same brand, using a fluffy brush, and the first thing I noticed was the way it blurred my pores, and left me with a soft, velvety lit-from-within finish. Apparently this has the same soft-focus effect that I know and love in the Meteorites powder. As I was going away I was rather excited as this meant I'd be leaving my Meteorites Pearls behind - as well as my precious bottle of Tenue de Perfection.This is not a full-coverage foundation, though, so concealer for the under eye area is a must, and due to the textures should be applied before the powder. That said, I've found Lingerie de Peau to last all day on me, even through heavy rain, and after a day at work I don't feel I have to touch-up unless I'm attending a special occasion, as whatever shine I'd usually get in my t-zone is limited to a soft, natural, healthy glow.My skin feels great throughout the day, no caking, no itching and no dryness. It really does the same thing for skin that underwear does for the body, providing a perfecting base layer, invisible to everyone else.An added bonus to all this is having the option to buy a refill when it's empty, which is a more environmental-friendly alternative to repurchasing the whole compact, as well as being kinder on your wallet. And you'll want to repurchase this box of gorgeousness, because it feels like my own skin, only better. « less

Effortless, Natural Warmth

The Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder provides a beautiful, natural warmth to the face and body. The bronzer has a super finely milled texture; smooth without being powdery or cakey. Even though the product is matte, it will not make your face look flat or dull. You never have to worry about patchiness or oxidation with this bronzing powder either. This product is very pigmented though, so I recommend using a light hand to apply it. I am a Beige 20 in Chanel foundations (NC20 in MAC base makeup) and the 01 Light Brunette works well for those with similar light/light-medium complexions. If you are looking to invest in a high end bronzing powder, I cannot recommend this one enough.

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!
