From time to time when I order online I get some really awesome samples. MOST of the time when you get to "pick three" they're just random skincare or fragrance items that I save for swaps. This time, I believe from Neiman Marcus, they were offering a decent sized sample packet of Guerlain Terracotta Skin Healthy Glow Foundation in Brunettes 02.
From the Neiman Marcus website:
Why choose between correction and a healthy glow? Terracotta Skin, the first Guerlain hybrid foundation, perfects the skin with the sheer coverage of a powder, leaving the skin with a unique sensation of bare skin with a matte and velvety finish.
Extremely creamy texture, thanks to a blend of powders and volatile oils combined with an elastomer gel.
In just a few seconds, its magical texture melts into the skin to reveal a fabulous complexion radiating health and well-being.
Available in 2 universal sun-kissed shades to enhance all complexions: 01 Blondes or 02 Brunettes.
For the past 170 years, Guerlain has created some of the world's most famous fragrances and show-stopping beauty products. From legendary scents to alluring lipsticks, the entire Guerlain collection is known for luxurious quality and timeless elegance.
First I'll share with you pictures of the packet and then the swatches of the product itself:
(swatched heavily & then blended)
Color me shocked but I LOVE this product! I can absolutely not wear it as a "foundation" but it works awesome as a bronzer just on the cheeks. The texture is like mousse and because it's so fluffy it blends like a dream. There isn't much of Summer left, but the second sample packet I have should last me the rest of the time. Next Summer I would without a doubt buy this product in full size to wear throughout the season.
Guerlain Terracotta Skin Healthy Glow Foundation retails for $49 (GREAT price considering you only need a dab per cheek) and can be purchased at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Sephora.
