I absolutely love Guerlain! This luxurious brand has such a high level of quality! During the years, I was lucky enough to be able to use many of the brand’s skin care and also make-up products, and I’m honestly telling you that Guerlain really keeps the skin looking young, healthy and beautiful.

Terracotta Pause d’Été Collector Bronzing Powder Duo (€72,50) | This is the most beautiful bronzing powder I have ever seen.
It has a luxurious, environmentally sound wooden compact (using wood from PEFC-approved sustainably managed forests) which opens in two separate pieces that stay together thanks to 3 small magnets.
It is fragranced with notes of orange blossom, tonka bean, vanilla and white musk, a delicious, yet discreet perfume…it actually smells like summer, really.
This bronzing duo combines the classic Terracotta powder in 03 Natural Brunettes with a pink shade; a slight gold shimmer connects the first two shades, and serves as an illuminator.
The shades warm the complexion beautifully and offer a sun kissed make-up.
The powder is very pigmented (I find it more pigmented than my classic Terracottas) and easily buildable.
It resists on the face all day long without any sign of caking, it is light, hydrating, it doesn’t need any retouch, it is transfer-resistant.
It is a product that suits all ages and can be used for a day-time and also a night-time make-up.
It is so very comfortable that it can even be used at the beach (those of you who like a light make-up, can apply this powder on-top of the sun protection and have a chic make-up even while tanning).
Terracotta L’Eau Hâlée Tinted Cooling Water (€51,00/ 28ml) | I have never tried a product like this one.
It’s absolutely fantastic!
It’s a tinted liquid, light as water, yet very hydrating, which offers the skin a discreet tan.
It comes off with water and soap and it’s actually buildable.
It can be used on the face on-top of the sun protection or on the body (my skin is very white these days and I LOVE to use Terracotta L’Eau Hâlée Tinted Cooling Water on my legs when I’m wearing a skirt/ dress).
It doesn’t stain, it’s not aggressive, it’s transfer-resistant and superbly refreshing.
I seriously consider stashing this product because it’s genius!
It can be applied by using the hands or with the help of a cotton pad (I like using my hands), it resists all day long without melting and staining the clothes.
Terracotta L’Eau Hâlée Tinted Cooling Water is the brand’s first tinted cooling water that instantly recreates a natural, sun-kissed skin; it also banishes dullness and leaves the complexion glowing; its tiaré flower fragrance leaves behind a refreshing, exotic scent on the skin, as delightful as the summer breeze.
The design of the glass dispenser was inspired by the mythical design of the 1840s Coconut Oil Soap; it includes a glass pipette dropper which makes the quantity to be used each time, easily measurable.
Terracotta Sun Protect IP/SPF 15 (€44,00/ 100ml) | This beautifully rich product, can be used on the face and body.
It protects the skin from sun and pollution (nicotine, chlorine, car exhaust) thanks to a selection of UVA/UVB filters and a cocktail of ingredients composed of a complex of shea polyphenols, natural ingredients extracted from the nut of a sacred African tree.
It has a velvety texture which melts instantly into the skin and a tiaré flower fragrance (similar to the cooling water).
It offers a glowy and dewy finish throughout the day and represents a perfect make-up base (when used on the face).
It can be superbly combined with the Terracotta L’Eau Hâlée Tinted Cooling Water and also with the Terracotta Pause d’Été Collector Bronzing Powder Duo.
It doesn’t leave any white marks on the skin and, although it has a rich formula, the product feels very light.
It keeps the skin hydrated throughout the day and activates the tan thanks to the Tan Booster Complex.
It comes in a 100ml tube, perfect for carrying it in the luggage while travelling.
KissKiss Shaping Cream Lip Color in 342 Fancy Kiss (€39,50) | This beautiful coral hue compliments my skin to perfection.
It is a fresh shade, perfect for spring and summer.
It is perfect for day-time make-up and also for an evening make-up.
The formula is light and hydrating; it is enriched with hyaluronic acid for softness, with commiphora oil, which keeps the lips smooth and with mango butter for moisturising effects.
It stays on the lips for 4 hours even if I eat or drink in between.
The lipstick has a satin finish and a delicate scent of vanilla and violet leaves.
The package looks like jewellery!
