A Beauty Collection Not to Miss: The Guerlain Summer 2018 Collection

I know most of us are probably already looking ahead to fall with clothing, makeup, skincare, etc but there are still some summer collections worth checking out before they are gone! The Guerlain summer 2018 launches are absolutely stunning. From the packaging to the formulas, Guerlain never disappoints. While Guerlain is always known for their bronzers and highlighters (the colors and textures are always perfection), it is the other ancillary products from this collection that really impressed me.
Let's start with my favorite out of all the new products - the Rosa Rossa fragrance! If you get nothing else, get this! With notes of lychee and blackcurrant, it's a delicate fruity floral that has incredibly lasting power. For a true summer fragrance, the Terrcotta Le Parfum is gorgeous. Notes of bergamot, ylang-ylang and vanilla make it a warm scent that smells just like summer. The Terracotta body oil is lightweight and absorbs instantly into the skin. The most unique product out of the bunch is the Bee Glow - a daytime moisturizer that helps to hydrated the skin while also leaving it radiant and glowing. While the formula has skincare benefits, it is best used under makeup as a primer.

The Guerlain MaxiLash is one of my all time favorite mascaras but I have actually never tried the Guerlain's waterproof mascara. The brush is full and fans out which is what I normally look for in a mascara. The Terracotta bronzer/blush powder and Terracotta Summer Glow Highlighter released are stunning just to look at and as always the formula is beautiful (and the mini bronzer brush is so luxurious). The bronzer is more of a cheek color for me since the bronze portion is quite dark and the other shade is a gorgeous vibrant peach. The gold leaf pattern over the top is an overspray so it disappears as you use the product which I don't mind too much because I'm more interested in the two colors rather than the gold shimmer. The highlighter is a bit too dark for me so I have been using it on the eyes but for a more medium to olive toned complexion, this would give a gorgeous golden glow to the cheekbones. Definitely not a subtle look, but the powder isn't overly glittery so it won't be too bold. 

For me, the stand out favorites were the fragrances - they are perfection! If you have never tried any Guerlain bronzers, they are truly worth the hype. Perhaps start with a basic one like this or this and then once you are hooked, you will want to collect them all. The best part is they release limited edition ones every few months so you will amass quite a collection very quickly. Ha!

  1. My most favorite fragrance is Guerlain's "Songe d'un Bois d'Ete" and since the Terracotta perfume is a limited edition, I clicked and it's in my cart. I love their products and have been using the Terracotta line of bronzers and skin tints for many summers.

    1. They truly are the best! The colors are always the perfect shade of bronze without being too orange or brown.
