Guerlain’s 2013 Terra Ora Collection is an invitation to summer. Using white and gold tones, which are showcased through stunning product composition and imagery, the Terra Ora assortment provides an unexpected and gorgeous contrast by playing with light and shadow, maximizing radiance and enhancing the inherent beauty of sun-kissed skin.
The golden highlighting shade would be pretty on anyone. The bronzer is a nice shade that works on my pale skin. The blended shade is drop-dead gorgeous.
Want a pro tip for application? Starting at the outer area and finishing with the inner gold circle, swirl your brush in an “O” shape for that perfect hint of bronze and gold all at once.
If your favorite Guerlain counter does not have the Terra Ora Collection, call Rhonda at the Guerlain Boutique at (702) 732-7008. She would be glad to help you. If you can wait, Guerlain’s Terra Ora Collection will be available beginning in May at select locations of Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Sephora, and Bergdorf Goodman.
Update: I wanted to return with a note about the intensity of Terra Ora. Many of us with fair complexions find bronzers hard to wear. They have to be just right to look natural. If that sounds like you, give Terra Ora a try. It's very sheer and pretty on my face, belying its depth in the compact. That's one reason the swatch photos of the blended shades are so light.
