For the first time in 30 years, Guerlain has created a new product to sit alongside their cult bronzing powder. Le Teint foundation makes creating glowy summer skin super easy
Written in partnership with Guerlain
Sometimes we are all faced with a complexion conundrum, especially in the summer months. We want something that feels as light as a powder on the skin but still delivers the coverage capability of a more pigment-dense foundation. That is where the new Guerlain Terracotta Le Teint, £47 comes in.
This liquid foundation comes in 30 shades and contains 95 per cent naturally derived ingredients, including argan oil to deliver superior levels of hydration to the skin while ensuring maximum comfort of wear. It has a unique silky texture that marries the light and airy feeling of wearing a powder with the coverage and longevity of a liquid foundation.
The formula is seriously long-wear. In fact, it lasts 24 hours should you need it to and in summer you need to know that your base is going to stay put all day no matter what you put it through. It’s also non-transferable (another essential factor in warmer weather) and creates the kind of gorgeous subtle glow you get after a wholesome weekend in the great outdoors. Aka exactly how we all want our complexion to look all the time. This is thanks to it containing very clever self-adaptable shimmer pigment, which adjusts to all skin tones creating a completely unique and bespoke effect while still allowing skin to shine and delivering the coverage you want. This also means no two Le Teint wearers skin will look the same even in the same shade, which is exactly how it should be but so often isn't.
And this arrival marks a truly iconic moment for the Terracotta family as it’s the first time since 1984, when the original Terracotta powder was created, that a new product has been added to the franchise. This foundation stays true to everything the powder represents - creating a glowy healthy look that works for all skin tones and types - with the ease of a liquid foundation. In terms of application, go with your favoured method, it works equally well with a makeup sponge, brush or even fingers.
Welcome to the family Le Teint, we’re very pleased to meet you.
