Tried & Tested: Guerlain Terracotta

When Guerlain Terracotta hit online, we became VERY excited. Each year the collection gets better and according to our testers, there was no disappointing…

Guerlain Cils D’Enfer Maxi Lash Waterproof

“I was extremely excited to try the new waterproof version of this mascara. I depended on the original Maxi Lash for individual lash length without the risk of clumps however it did tend to leave me with slight panda eyes.

“This mascara is presented in a sleek silver casing as opposed to the original gold, making it easy to distinguish in my make-up bag! The brush applicator is exactly the same as the original with a bristle brush that separates each lash, curling and lengthening; giving buildable length as desired. But the bonus was no smudging under my eyes! Guerlain have just made the best mascara, better! I would definitely recommend it to anyone that likes buildable volume and amazing length – I can’t wait to use this in the summer against the humidity!”

Sun Celebration Bronzer

“I have a fair complexion so usually steer clear of bronzers but I was pleasantly surprised by this. I could see that the colours were very pigmented but the light formula made them sheer enough to give a subtle warmth to my skin. It’s also very buildable so it would suit a variety of skin tones and would be perfect with a tan! I blended all the colours together for a quick and easy contouring effect.

“This is a holiday must-have as you can create a variety of looks with just one palette. The product itself is lightly scented and smells amazing. I loved the luxurious wooden packaging and that the top half contains a large mirror (this bronzer is huge!) completely separating from the bottom half, making it easy to use on the go. They are held together by magnets so there is no chance of losing it which was a plus for me!”

Terracotta Eau De Parfum

“When I first saw the bottle I thought it looked simple but very luxurious and I was excited about using it. I found the scent very strong, definitely a perfume to wear in the evening as opposed to day. This isn’t a perfume I would necessarily wear, however I do see a more mature woman wearing it more often!

“I think it will be perfect for my mum so I will be passing it on and I am sure it will be very well received.”

Gloss D’Enfer Maxi Shine

“The colour of the gloss in the tube is a bright coral, exactly what I’ve been looking for for summer. With a slightly slanted brush, it glides on easily with a lovely tint – just enough to notice a difference but not too overpowering. I can’t wait to use it on holiday when I have a tan as I know it will compliment it!”

Times have changed (thankfully) and my desk is a mini department store - saving beauty disasters for HoF staff since the start of 2014. I'll also spend part of my time cooing over baby things and loving the excuse to be a kid again, broodiness also ignored.
