From the brand that has mastered the art of flawless bronzing, Guerlain introduces Summer By Terracotta, including this trio of new (and of course, limited edition) products in the ever-expanding Terracotta family, all aiming to get you ready for the season: a unique new bronzer in cushion format, a highlighter made of unicorn tears (possibly), and a powdered bronzer that will definitely make you cry to actually mar its surface with a brush … but which is so well worth diving into.
