Guerlain Terracota Terre D’Ete

*All items purchased with my own funds

Oh my, I should have really tried this in store first before I bought it sight unseen.

But after I had such great success with the Guerlain Sun Celebration compact last year, I thought I would get lucky again. I love Guerlain products, they aren’t always Brown Girl friendly, but I when I find something that I like I buy it.  The products are always outstanding.

I had a 20% off coupon from Saks, the ones that come unexpectedly via email and you have 2days to use them.  They have a long list of exclusions, mainly all the things you want to buy from Saks, but they do work on beauty products so…. I thought the Guerlain compact was a bit overpriced, but the 20% made it palatable.

It looked slightly darker online, but I will admit to being nervous about the colour pay-off.  So basically, it’s already gone back to Saks. It was way too light for me.  And if I put too much on, it just made me look ashy.  My foundation ranges are Chanel Perfection Lumiere in 94/104, MAC NW43/44, Dior foundation matches 50/60. I think if I was bit fairer this would have worked for me.

Someone mentioned on IG the disappointment that Guerlain is not always brown girl friendly.  Honestly, I don’t have a problem with it.  If something doesn’t work for me I don’t buy it, but companies have a right to produce what ever they want.  Just as I have the right to choose NOT to buy any products that don’t work for me.  I feel like the Guerlain Sun Celebration bronzer from 2014 was a much better fit for us darker ladies.

I believe this is still available at Nordstrom.  It really is beautiful to look at, but I don’t buy make-up to look at.  Or I should say I try not to.

Thanks so much for stopping by and stay blessed.

  1. I have heard nothing but great things of Guerlain products over the past couple of years of wearing makeup but have yet to invest on any of their product. I wanted to get their bronzer but I was so not ready to spend $80 lol. The price tag is perhaps why I haven’t purchase anything yet. They sure are beautiful to look at

    1. They have really great products, at very high-end prices! That’s why I jumped on that coupon, but as pretty as it was, it just didn’t work for me. Usually, I wait to purchase Guerlain during the VIB sales at Sephora, they are definitely worth the wait. Thanks for stopping by sweetie!
