Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzer in 00 Nude

I know I jumped the gun by posting a swatch comparison of Dior's Pink Glow and Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzer in Nude in my earlier post, but I just had to do it based on some pals' request. However, this post is dedicated to Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzer in 00 Nude. :)

Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzer is housed in a dome-shaped brown plastic case that has the signature G logo on it and it fit nicely onto anyone's palm, like a pressed powder.

It has a faint rosy scent to it and it's similar to Blush G Sakura. Quite a feminine scent, in my opinion. For ladies who doesn't like scent in their product, it's not exactly strong so do try over the counter to see if you can take the scent.

Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzer in 00 Nude comprises of 4 shades: 3 varying shades of beige / brown and a light rose pink.


For my NC30 skin, the pigmentation actually doesn't show up much and I have to use a dense kabuki brush to apply instead of my usual MAC blush brush. If you like real nude blush (no wonder this bronzer is called NUDE, lol), you might like this bronzer as it gives an almost extremely subtle tan or glow. I personally won't say I dislike this effect as I do have my days when I prefer stronger blush / subtle blush.

For swatches, you can refer to the earlier post whereby I compare this bronzer with Dior's Pink Glow.

The saving grace of this bronzer is it's texture as it's fine-milled and smooth, although Dior felt smoother and buttery in comparison. I do notice that pigments get picked up on the bristles but it's just not pigmented enough.

So the million dollar question........ Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzer in Nude or Dior Nude Tan Paradise Duo in Pink Glow?? My suggestion:-

- Fuss-free blush that you need not worry about over application, go for Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzer in Nude. It's almost impossible to go wrong looking like a clown with this shade, even when using a kabuki brush. The only downside is you might use up the product faster if you need more product during applying.

- For pigmented blush and having the option to use as a bronzer, blush or contouring, go for Dior Nude Tan Paradise Duo in Pink Glow. Downside? Go light-handed and blend.

Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzer is retailing at $101 over the counter and I paid $90.50 at Changi Airport Duty Free.

  1. Hey Ruby, I've had this one applied and I liked the result! However, if I had to pick between this one and Dior Pink/Coral Glow, I think the answer is clear :p This doesn't really work as a blush on my skin tone!

    1. Sunny, I totally agree with u. Guerlain looks glowy but it just ends there. I will choose Pink / Coral Glow as well.
