I’m back with another 2018 LE Guerlain Terracotta bronzer: Sous Les Palmiers (translated as “Under the palm trees”). Guerlain released this in parallel with their Sahara Jewel bronzer (also LE), which I spoke about here. But unlike the Sahara Jewel which included a pink blush, Sous Les Palmiers has a healthy dose of coral blush placed in the pan beside the bronzer.
Sous Les Palmiers follows in the footsteps of another couple of generously-sized LE Terracotta bronzers: Chic Tropic (discussed here), and Sahara Jewel (discussed here). Similarly to those, it comes packaged in a gorgeous metal tin which you can reuse to store small items after you finish the bronzer – assuming that’s even possible, with it being so huge!
Another similarity between the three is the gold overspray… I know many of you aren’t fans, but it doesn’t really bother me. It dusts off very easily with just a few brush strokes… Above you can see pictures of both states: with / without overspray.
The great thing about Sous Les Palmiers is the size of the blusher included with the bronzer. Its surface area would absolutely accommodate a regular-sized blush brush – which makes this product a very travel-friendly, 2-in-1 companion.
Here are some swatches of the Sous Les Palmiers either alone, or beside its sister-release: the Sahara Jewel.
Would love to hear how you think the coral compares to the pink!
