guerlain terracotta 4 seasons 03 natural- brunettes

The Terracotta Four Seasons bronzer range contain four matte shades with blend together to match every skintones for a authentic looking tan. It comes in 6 different shades, but I have the shade 03 Natural Brunettes The powder bronzer is velvety smooth and very, very finely milled. I find it almost feels creamy? Which is odd considering it is very much a powder, but it has such a buttery soft feel to it! It blends like an absolute dream into the skin to give a soft luminous matte glow. The colour pay off is very true to pan and compliments my skin-tone wonderfully. I use a angled brush to sculpt my cheekbones and add subtle definition to the face around the temples. I adore the way it looks on my skin, it adds the perfect amount of contour and definition that I've always dreamed on without being too muddy, too dark or too orange. Just the perfect brown natural shade. I've slapped it on slightly heavier than I'd normally go to show how it looks on but it really is a beautiful shade. The packaging is strong and sturdy and actually quite weighty, It's absolutely beautiful and what I would expect from a brand like Guerlain.

Now I'm sure you are all gasping when I point out that these retail for an almost eye watering £46.50 a compact. Yeap. Almost fifty-english-pounds for a bronzer. Wow, possibly one of the most expensive beauty product I've personally ever tried. While I didn't buy this I reckon I'd be hesitant about buying it for myself. While I like expensive makeup, this is just next level. I can see why I put off getting a Gueralin Bronzer for so long.

It's safe to say I love this Bronzer and I regret not getting into Guerlain Bronzer's sooner, but also see why I didnt invest. Guerlain Bronzers are a absolute cult product and I think I remember reading somewhere one is sold every 20 seconds. Would I go as far as saying it's the best bronzer I've ever tried... Oh go on then. Yes it's the best bronzer I've ever used and we are now in love. 03 Natural Brunettes is the perfect matte bronzer for olive skin tones for contouring, adding colour to the face and sculpting. In all while the Guerlain Terracotta 03 Natural Brunettes is expensive but I think it's worth every single penny and I wholeheartedly recommend it. One massive (expensive!) thumbs up from me!

  20. It looks lovely, but I would never pay more than £35 for one single item of makeup! Such a shame about the price!

  21. Hi, thank you for the lovely review. You really got me interested in this shade. Have you perhaps checked also 00 and 05? I already own number 5 (former 02) and I'm having trouble deciding which one should I get. I guess my skintone is similair to yours - always the lightest yellow shade in the range with no rosy undertones. I would like something more practical than 05 (it is really dark) and at the same time different than 05 :) I would be grateful for any help!

    Great blog by the way! I'm going to subscribe :)
