Guerlain practically invented the “healthy glow” look and this Spring has expanded it’s Terracotta line with the new Terracotta Joli Teint Collection. This collection marks the debut of the new Terracotta Joli Teint Beautifying Foundation; read on for all the details.

Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint

The cornerstone of the Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint Collection is Terracotta Joli Teint Beautifying Foundation SPF 20 ($53). This lightweight “foundation” has the texture and feel of a luxurious tinted moisturizer. More pigmented than a BB or CC cream, Terracotta Joli Teint offers a weightless, silky feel. That’s because there are specially created pigments that resemble proteins in the skin. This allows the product to blend in and wear seamlessly. Each shade is designed to work as a base prior to adding your Terracotta Bronzing Powder so that you create a flawless, customizable tan for every skintone. Brilliant!

The more I wear Terracotta Joli Teint Beautifying Foundation SPF 20, the more I love it. The formula includes SPF 20, Chlorella extract, which is a micro-algae extract that helps to tone and enrich skin and Nasturtium extract, which helps increase radiance. Terracotta Joli Teint Beautifying Foundation SPF 20 comes in 5 shades: Light, Natural, Medium, Dark and Ebony.

I tested the Light shade, which was a bit too light for my skin. I think I would need to bump up to Natural for the best finish. In terms of coverage, I’d consider this light to almost-medium. This definitely covered my skin imperfections, which I love, while giving a natural, radiant finish. Bottom line for me is that I love this new addition to the Guerlain Terracotta family. Highly recommended!
