Coming Attraction: Guerlain Summer 2016 Collection

I have been "sitting on" Guerlain's Summer 2016 Collection press release until I got the go-ahead to share it with you. Now that Guerlain's Summer 2016 Collection is scheduled to ship to stores next week, I can show you what's in store for your summer. Start saving your money!

Feel the Sun…
Encapsulating the essence and ever-lasting presence of the sun, Guerlain Terracotta Summer 2016 celebrates the delight we all feel when we are playing under the summer’s blue sky, laying on a white sand beach, or lounging poolside fixated on the crystal clear water. It’s been more than 30 years since Guerlain created the first-ever bronzer. Fast forward to today...the Terracotta Summer Collection is inspired by the sunny terraces of the French Riviera. This Summer Collection is a dazzling summer line that continues its rick tradition.

TERRACOTTA PAUSE D’ÉTÉ (shown above, $82) is a bronzing powder for the face and décolleté. For good reason, it's the star of the collection. This mesmerizing palette features colors that capture the sun’s intensity to illuminate skin with dazzling radiance. This bronzer and blush rolled into one is available in one universal harmony of pink, coral, and gold, married to add a fresh touch of color to your skin. The emblematic Guerlain double "G" logo is situated in the heart of the compact, surrounded by intertwining gold sailing ropes, is as beautiful to look at as it is to use. The large compact is encased in a magnetic wooden case (like some that preceded it) derived from sustainably managed European forests (FSC-certified), with a wide mirror within. This looks like must-have to me. Who am I fooling? I should just admit that I want the entire collection.

TERRACOTTA L’EAU HÂLÉE ($54) is a cooling bronzing water for the face. It washes off with soap and water and is non-transferable. It is designed to help us achieve a natural-looking, flawless tan for the face. With this "water," a healthy tan look is just a drop away with this silky-smooth, cooling bronzing water. The ultra-comfortable second-skin texture will delight the skin, but it’s the versatility and the impeccable results that will keep her loyal to L’Eau Hâlée. Worn alone or under Terracotta Bronzing Powder, L’Eau Hâlée delivers buildable glow, while simultaneously enhancing and prolonging an existing tan. The tan will intensify with every application. L’Eau Hâlée washes off easily with soap and water, so you don't have to make a commitment to your tan.

Guerlain debuts its iconic (and one of my favorites) lipstick in two new easy-to-wear limited-edition shades for a stunning summer look! Kiss Blossom is a tender, romantic pink shade, and Fancy Kiss is a luminous orange shade that looks warm and wearable by all.

MY TERRACOTTA LIMITED EDITION ($53) is a bronzing powder for a natural and long-lasting tan. Dressed in a bright, reusable, red silicone sleeve, My Terracotta epitomizes summer. The powder delivers a natural sun-kissed glow for a mistake-proof and long-lasting finish with an irresistible fragrance. It's available in one shade, #02.

These Summer Collection products will be available by May 1, 2016 at Bloomingdale's, Dillard’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman, Guerlain Boutiques and, of course, Guerlain's Web site.

As an extra-added bonus to the collection, TERRACOTTA TERRA MAGNIFICA ($78.00) will become your after-summer palette. This makeup masterpiece will be infused with varying golden hues set alongside a changing seasonal complexion. It will only take seconds to illuminate your skin and sculpt your face with this treasure.

Housed in a modern case with an unexpected screw cap containing a large mirror inside, there is no chance of sand getting inside this must-have summer and fall essential. This Terracotta after-summer palette will be available June 15th exclusively at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and Guerlain Boutiques. If you plan to shop the boutique, I recommend calling the Guerlain Boutique at the Breakers in Florida to reserve yours in advance of the rush.

There you have it - the collection we have all been eagerly awaiting. Which pieces will be on your wish list?

I was just talking the other day to our new Guerlain SA about the upcoming collections. In addition to these beauties, a bit later on we'll also be getting the lipstick and nail polish collection which has already launched in Europe. Summer collections are amongst my least favorite as I fancy myself more a silver fox than a bronzed goddess ;-) , but Guerlain always has something beautiful to entice me.

Oh my goodness, they all look wonderful! I want them all but my wallet disagrees. lol I think the Terracotta Terra Magnifica looks especially beautiful so perhaps that's the one I will aim to pick up. I love these special bronzing powders, I have a few although they are a bit tricky to use because I'm so fair. Regardless they are hard to resist!

Oh boy, I want it all!!

Sandra said...

I love them all, too, but I MUST have the TERRACOTTA PAUSE D’ÉTÉ! It is just what I Have been waiting for! The bronzing water looks awsome, but if I can only choose one it will have to be the bronzing powder. The Fancy Kiss lipstick is also very enticing for summer! I assume all will sell out quickly!

I am not a bronzer girl, so I don't own a single one, but oh my goodness are the two bronzer powders gorgeous. I am loving the Terracotta Terra Magnifica the most, so I might take the plunge...for the collection, of course.
