I have here Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder in 08 Ebony, which I love so much and I think you will also love it like I do if you decide to give it a try..


A legendary product, Terracotta was the first Guerlain bronzing powder. Given the status of a magical beauty product, Terracotta echoes the soft touch of the first rays of sunlight.
Light, translucent and luminous, Terracotta restores a natural healthy glow in a few strokes of a brush. Combining the sensuality of a natural tan with the voluptuousness of light textures and a lot velvety finish, Terracotta perfectly reproduces the golden and coppery shimmer of sunlight. Its formula, enriched with moisturising active ingredients, does not dry out the skin. It ensures long-lasting comfort.
The skin glows with an instant natural tan that is both matte and luminous. Subtly moisturised, it radiates with beauty.


This bronzer is just awesome on my NW43 skin. I haven’t used another bronzer since I got my hands on it..The struggle to get a bronzer that shows up on my complexion is real guys, its either not dark enough or its too ashy and looks muddy. Thanks to the Guerlain Terracotta bronzer in 08, I don’t have to worry about that..

The bronzer is smooth, soft, very easy to apply and long lasting.Β Perfect for contouring on my NW43 skin. NoΒ muddy appearance or ashiness. It just gives my skin a subtle definition that is hard to tell but you can definitely see the effect. It has little gold sparkles that is not noticeable upon application, but just add a subtle glow to your face..

The bronzer has a floral scent that is only noticeable in the compact, it was gone upon application. And can we talk about the packaging? it’s very sleek and pretty..

Before Guerlain Terracotta in 08 Ebony, I used Covergirl Queen Collection Bronzer in Ebony Bronze which is a pretty dark bronzer similar to Guerlain bronzing powder. The Covergirl bronzer has more gold sparkles in it and its a little too warm. The Guerlain has a smoother texture than the CG bronzer..

The only issue I have is with the price.. It’s quite pricey for a bronzer. If you can over look the price, go for it. If not stick to the covergirl Ebony bronzer.
I got mine from Essenza at Ikeja City mall for 11,500Naira.
