I love the tones of their bronzers. The scent is a little strong for me but I still use them. They have a subtle shimmer which give you a nice glow without looking cheezy
I am so afraid theyll discontinue this so I need to get a new one. I have had hard time finding a perfect bronzer. They are either too orange, too dry, too shiney, too yellow or look streaky on or they just wont last long. This is one of the first ones I have bought ever and I have tried a lot after that. This is by this far the best. I have a very dry skin and most bronzers and blushers make my skin dry and irritated. This is an exeption. It really feels moisturising. My skin never gets itchy or broken of using it and the colors are ok too. I have a pale cool toned skin and I use 20 but I think 1 would work allright too. And also it lasts a long time on my skin. When others start looking patchy and streaky by mid day. This babe stays on all day. Its like that duracel bunny. There are few shades that are far from orange. 4 is a great one too.
I use this in #20 and it's perfect for me, I'm so pale I just didn't want to look too orange but this is the perfect shade, plus it has the perfect amount of microshimmer that is not really noticeable which is good cos I just don't want to look like a discoball if I'm just going university hehe! It's amazing how everybody started asking me about what had I done to my face cos I looked more "healthy and awake" LOL and even my bf said "I dunno what you've done to your face but you look beautiful" isn't that just enough to love this bronzer?
EDIT: Broke me out bit time and made my skin itch.
Its been a long journey on the quest for the HG bronzer. A journey that took me, untriumphantly, via Nars "disco-ball glitter-bug" Laguna, Chanel "oompa loompa" Sierra and many, many more.
I have to say, some of the above descriptions can apply to the original four shades of Guerlain terracotta, depending on your skin tone. They contain too much of a red tone to work on me (though they look fab on my friends, esp No 2 and No 4). For me (NC20), I was looking for something that gave the peaches n cream glow touted by benefit georgia. I get that and more with No 20. It evens my skin tone, doesn't look flat, powdery, orange, dirty or fake. I look rested. The barely there iridescence is indiscernable, allowing me to put this on in the morning, slick on my favourite gloss, curl my lashes and get out the door. Love it, HG Status is attained!
I bought this for about two years ago and I have been using it now and then since. I don't know what color I have but its a bit on the light side for me. The bronzer itself is good and I like the smell but I don't like the big gold glittery sun... I only use the bronzer around the sun b/c I don't like when its too much glitter everywhere on my face. The sun is good for highlithing cheeks and browbone but they could have made it much smaller IMO. Love the oversized compact!
I have this in No.10 and it's a great bronzer for all over my fair-medium Asian skin. A lot of my other Asian friends use No.2 and love it. I feel I have to layer on No.10 a bit more than No.2 to get a darker color...but I purchased this color so I could use it all over my face, not just "where the sun hits", etc. I don't mind the scent at all. I'm going to try Stephane Marais Bronzer before I decide whether Guerlain is the best.
Very pretty! Nice glowy, sunkissed color (i have no.2) I have light-medium skin with some freckles and this looks really nice on me. It goes on very lightly, which i love, because i tend to apply makeup with a heavy hand. It isn't too richly pigmented, and it doesn't deposit too much on a brush when you use it. You can apply it ever so lightly for a subtle hint of color, just so you don't look like very white and pasty, OR you can apply it heavier for a pretty bronze, summer color. Either way, it manages to come out very natural looking. Probably because it's so expensive - i paid $32 for mine.
This is a very good line of bronzers. They hold up really well and do not need to be re-applied. On my olive skin I use the #2 and it gives me a really healthy looking sun kissed look. I apply it lightly with a big Chanel blush brush.
I purchased this product after hearing many raves about it. I have one of the lighter shades, all the others seemed too orange on my lightly tinted, asian skin. I apply with a large brush like everyone else, but have to check if I haven't applied too much on my cheekbones. I don't like the shimmer in it, but haven't found any bronzing powder without shimmer/glitter. All in all I think it's a good bronzing powder, but I've taken off two lippies because of the shimmer and the price.
I have used this almost everyday for 6 years! Quite a few friends now use it at my recomendation. Do apply LIGHTLY with a large brush - a little goes a long way! I find that quickly rubbing my face with the palms of my hands after putting it on helps to even out the colour in the winter when I'm pale. Although it may seem pricey it's good value when you consider that each one lasts me a whole year. My only critisism is that the compact doesn't contain an applicator of any variety - so I have to carry a brush around in my handbag. Does have a mirror though. Don't think the packaging is that bad - although would be fabulous if they used the gold that Guerlain's Divinora lipsticks come in.
