Summer favourites: Guerlain Terracotta Sun Celebration & Gloss d'enfer 940 Nahema Smack

I normally use all my makeup. I mean, not all at the same time of course! But I manage to rotate it, with seasons, special occasions, and a lot of organization, each piece of my collection eventually comes to life. Now this is the first time a piece of makeup is among my favourites and I'm so reluctant to actually use it! I would just stare at it for hours in admiration! Hahaha, yep I'm a hopeless case!



 
Let me introduce you to Guerlain Terracotta Sun Celebration and Gloss d'enfer in 940 Nahema Smack. Gorgeous, GORGEOUS pieces for a makeup collection, your vanity or makeup corner.



I have been using the gloss a lot and it's actually been in my everyday makeup bag for a while. But the Sun Celebration Terracotta powder...

 
It costed me a lot until I finally decide to use it! Well, I did not need therapy, in case you are wondering, but I wanted to preserve the gorgeous embossed design and the golden spray. Until one day I went like: the heck with it! I need to use it or it wouldn't make any sense to own it!
So here is how this powder combining bronzer and two different shades of blush looks on me.


The bronzer is very pigmented so I had a very light hand, because I'm very pale this Summer. The powder smells divinely! this is the new scent used by Guerlain using tiare flower. The powder texture is extremely fine, so it blends super easily leaving a flawless finish on the skin.

Does it ever happen to you that you like something so much you're a bit afraid of using it? If it does, when? what kind of thing? Maybe fancy expensive shoes? Let me know I'm not THAT crazy, LOL!

Love,
Nati

  7. Haha I actually don't have the choice, but I know what you mean! I make sure I take good photos, then I close my eyes and dip my finger in. In the case of Sun Celebration, I intentionally got rid of the overspray first as well, since I didn't want it to end up on my face.

    You look prettty!!! I use Nahema Smack more often than any other gloss I own. It's so gorgeous :)

  12. Salut ma biche!!! You got that Guerlain? It is beautiful!!! And you look awesome with that whiff of color defining your face structure!!! I splurged on a Guerlain lipstick (those that come with a mirror) so no gloss for me! Sadly that bronzer looks too orange on me - I use a MAC brownish blush instead and then a Nyx Powder (the one with leopard print) was on sale for half the price so I picked that one up. And it happened to me before - saving a splurge - guess what, I saved it so well that I completely forgot about it and found it only when I reorganized my make-up stash - haha - have a wonderful week ma biche xxx

    1. haha Christine, I can imagine that happens to me with nail polish all the time! Oh, btw the bronzer is not orange at all! what you see in my face is a mix of the bronzer with the apricot blush in the pan :)
      have a nice week you too! xxx
