Guerlain Terra Ora Sculpting Powder

Guerlain Terra Ora Sculpting Powder

Have you ever seen something so beautiful? Just look at the detail which has gone into the embossing on this product. Absolutely stunning. Guerlain is a brand I have never really dabbled in before, but their products always look incredible, with both permanent products and limited edition products that draw me in every time I'm near a counter. Sometimes it can be a bit daunting with brands you have little to no experience with, not knowing which products to try, but after trying this beauty I will definitely be dabbling more in Guerlain as a brand overall. So what is this work of art that has given me the Guerlain bug?

Guerlain Terra Ora Sculpting Powder* (Escentual*, £36): A little deceiving at first the fine shimmer and gold and bronze tones make it almost look like a bronzer, but this is most definitely not a bronzer. Described by Guerlain as providing a sun kissed glow, creating a pearly veil on the skin, this is an incredibly beautiful highlighting powder which is so beautifully subtle yet impacting at the same time, that it can be used for anything from highlighting your cheek bones and brow bone, to a light swish of product down the bridge of your nose, cupids bow, even the decolletage. Terra Ora is one of those products that's special, the product itself is gorgeously pigmented, just enough to leave a stunning highlight and sun kissed glow, without being over powering or disappointing. The formula is of exceptional quality, easily one of the loveliest formulas I've had the pleasure of using for powder highlights and the longevity is also fantastic - very rarely do I need to touch up. Housed within a wooden, mirrored case with a lid that completely comes away, and a magnetic close to keep it in place; it's unusual, and designed like no other product I own in that sense. You get a lot of product, too; the wooden case is pretty big, easily filling my hands and carries 16g of product. A real treat, this is reserved for the most special of occasions (and saw a lot of use over the festive Christmas period!), one of those 'special' pieces in a makeup collection. Suggested as suitable for all skin tones, I'd agree - the formula and pigmentation is spot on, and would easily be usable on a variety of skin tones whilst never appearing too subtle or too harsh. It's just, well, I think magical is a good word to describe this one.

If you were looking for a splurge buy, or maybe something to treat yourself to with Christmas money, this is the one girls. The perfect highlighting powder with a warmer twist, I'm smitten.

    1. They are certainly a pricey brand but after trying this? I won't be so put off by the price. The quality and feel of the product is just wonderful and I'm so impressed. Are there any particular Guerlain products you have your eye on? :) xo

    1. I've used it for a good few months now and I have to admit, the embossing detail is still almost like new! I've hardly dented it - very light hand and this works wonderfully :) But I know what you mean, I get like that a lot with Clarins collections, too! xo

    1. I have so tempted by the Terracotta bronzers, everyone has been raving about them! What do they smell like?! xo

      Delete
    2. Heaven! Hehe, no, but it's just the ultimate summer smell really:))
      Do you know what the The Body Shop Honey Bronze Collection (especially the honey bronze dry oil) smell like? It's something like that (just not the honey smell), just even better! Haha, I am hopeless on explaining:) I think it's a flower called Tiare..:)
      My favorite Guerlain products must be the Terracotta Dry Oil, the Kohl Liner and the Healthy Glow Second Skin Effect "Foundation" and Sun in the City shimmer powder.. omg.. all of it really haha!! :) xx

    3. Ah that sounds lush! I love The Body Shop Honeybronze collection, their bronzer from that range is actually my favourite high-street bronzer :) The Terracotta Dry Oil sounds intriguing, I'll be sure to give everything a try next time I'm at a Guerlain counter. Thanks Karla! :) xo

    1. It's definitely on the sunkissed side of highlighters, but I could never use this as a bronzer or contour. It's definitely a highlight :) xo
