I have to confess: I have been toying with the idea of putting together a post of my top picks from the summer collections, but I had to put it off. Why? Well, how could I leave Guerlain Terra Ora Collection (availability in Belgium: June 15th) out? It has an Egyptian goddess vibe that will look like a dream on tanned summer skin! Let’s take a quick look at Terra Ora Sculpting Powder Contrast Highlighter Face and Décolleté, Bronze Ora Fard Métal, and Corail Ora Shine Automatique!
Terra Ora Sculpting Powder Contrast Highlighter Face and Décolleté (16 grams/.056 oz. RRP in Belgium: 65,08 euros) is no doubt the star of the show! Don’t force me to admit I almost shed a tear dipping my finger in the pan: just look at that pattern! My quick observation is that the powder is velvety-soft, finely-milled, and not over-the-top shimmery!
Here is the swatch of the highlighter shade, the bronzer shade, and the two mixed together:
Apparently loose eyeshadows are on the rise! Behold Bronze Ora Fard Métal (0.7 grams/0.02 oz. RRP: 30,81 euros)! The idea is not far from the other two loose eyeshadows you’ve seen here recently (PIXI and Rouge Bunny Rouge), but the applicator is surprisingly bouncy! It practically jumps up as you twist the cap open (don’t worry though. I tried. It never literally bounced out)! The shadow itself seems very pigmented and smooth. Here’s to hoping it’s long-lasting and not fussy to work with!
Left: one swipe straight from the applicator. Right: built up
Last but not least, isn’t there is a coral lipstick in the collection (cue Sunny with Gollum face)? Say hello to Corail Ora Shine Automatique (RRP: 35,07 euros)! It’s a coral in a formula I love. Chances of me not being a fan are pretty slim!
Left: one pass. Right: built up. Oh you juicy coral goodness with golden shimmer!
Look(s) and reviews coming soon!
Have you got to check this collection out? Did you indulge?

PS: More information for the Belgian readers: only Kohl Kajal and Lingerie de Peau BB Cream will be available at ICI PARIS XL. The rest is available at all Guerlain counters. I am personally very interested in the BB cream. I swatched some at the airport recently and liked the satiny matte finish.
