How it fared:
The packaging is a classy compact with mirror. I find the packaging quite sturdy and travel friendly.
There are some 8 shades to choose from and the shade I own is #5. I find it to be the perfect shade for my NC 40 skin tone. The bronzer is a pretty golden tan shade with a subtle sheen that goes on quite natural on me. The best part about the bronzer is how finely milled and super blendable it is. At the same time, the color payoff is excellent without having to build up. It does not have any distinct orange undertones to it and that adds to the natural finish it renders.
The bronzer has a distinctive rose fragrance typical of Guerlain products. The bronzer wore on me for 8+ hours without fading.
- Finely milled

- Lasts 8+ hours
- Expensive for the quantity included
Overall Verdict: Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing powder is my HG bronzer. It is not shimmery neither matte but the subtle sheen adds to the dimension. The shade selection is also quite good. Chances are you will find a winner here.
