Guerlain Terracotta Sun in the City Summer Makeup 2012 Swatches

 

Guerlain Sun In The City Summer Makeup 2012

This year’s seasonal Terracotta make-up from Guerlain is ‘Sun in the City‘, a range that is all over foolproof protection and chic colour for a summer spent in the city. With a warming palette of shades, this capsule collection is all about illuminating the complexion with shimmering, ultra glamorous textures.

This little lot will set you in good stead for the start of the summer – and the highly anticipated Guerlain x Pucci makeup collaboration in June will see you through the rest! Keep your eyes peeled, because it’s a good’un.

The large Guerlain Terracotta Sun in the City palette is a showstopper. Enriched with gold nacres in a universally flattering shade, it is perfect for illuminating both the face and the body.

 The pattern of this palette is very intricate, with a cross-hatch finish that makes it easy to pick up the shimmer with a brush.

The finish is actually very subtle, and can be applied to the face and the body for a gentle, radiant shimmer. Build it up for a gilded highlighter for the cheekbones and collarbones.
