Guerlain Terra Inca Ombre Cream Eyeshadow Swatches, Photos

Guerlain has introduced three shades of Ombre Cream Eyeshadows with their new Terra Inca Summer Collection 2011.

If you’ve been yearning for the new MAC Big Bounce Eyeshadows but have been crushed at the really bad reviews they have been receiving I highly suggest saving your change and investing in a worthy cream shadow such as these.

At $35 these aren’t cheap but they are incredibly gorgeous with a dreamy formula. I’ll be reviewing shortly but here are a few swatches to wet your appetite.

After playing with them a bit I couldn’t help but wish Guerlain would create a line of these for the permanent collection in a larger variety of color selections, yes, I’m liking them that much.

As I said $35 is a bit much to splurge but they are well worth it in my opinion so far particularly if you’re a high end girl.

Colors include:

  • Bahia (delicate rosy pink beige)
  • Havana (strong chocolate-y taupe)
  • Maya (golden bronze brown)

I’m really lusting these at the moment and think you’ll love them too!

They are on counter now at Nordstrom, Neiman, Neiman Marcus, and other fine retailers plus will be available shortly from Sephora.

Will you be hauling them?

Already own them?

Do share!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    They look beautiful, but the price makes me step away in horror.

    • the Muse

      aw shush ;-D you get what you pay for though sometimes chica ;D!

  • Samantha

    If you had to pick just one, which one would you choose?

    • the Muse

      oh sam don’t do that…you’re killing me ;-D haha! depends do you like browns/bronzy shades? or softer peachy pink?

        • the Muse

          havana or maya are perfect Sam ;-D Depends on whether you want deeper and richer or lighter and more golden.

  • Regina

    Havana is GORG and it looks like a little goes a long way and there seems to be a lot of product in that bottle. Definitely worth the price, I’d bite!!

    • the Muse

      regina grab ’em ;-D they are stunning imho ;D! quite pigmented!

  • Asuka

    Bahia is my favorite!

    A liquid eye shadow might dry after a year or so. So, if a woman guesses she won’t be using this often, she will regret the purchase. Muse, we expect to see these on your eyelids 🙂

    I NEED MAYA! But only bec it’s what my real name is….. oops…. my cover has been blown!

  • The Beauty Alchemist

    Love Havana , it’s a great medium deep brown , but my oily( greasy really ) eyelids don’t really hold these at all. The formula is so beautiful and creamy, so I am interested to hear how drier eyelids manage. Me, I can melt anything almost on my eyes, even supposed waterproof products, so this is not unusual for me but I had such hopes.

    • the Muse

      hey..they hold up well on me but I seen some fading towards the 8th hours so you’re not alone there :-/

  • The Beauty Alchemist

    Ok I said wrong shade. Maya is my fav not Havana. I knew it was the bronzy one which is still a nice deeper shade. Had to go check the box 🙂

  • The Beauty Alchemist

    One more comment- The new MUFE liquid eyeliners though , last like IRON. Love them. Their cream shadows didn’t last either ( I know…) but the liners, totally awesome.

    • the Muse

      hey you! I tried them and deeply impressed ;-D!!!!!!!!!!!!! you’re right, last all day!

  • Tammie

    When I bought my Terracotta gloss the SA forced me to swatch “maya” and it was very nice but I don’t wear cream eyeshadow and I don’t wear eyeshadow enough to spend over $10 for a single color (if I want to splurge I’ll get a Dior quint). Just wanted to attest to it being very nice though, if I wore eye stuff more/cream eyeshadow I’d’ definitely be wanting it.

    I’m also biased though, because after getting the Terracotta gloss I’m kind of a huge Guerlain fan lol. I want the red one too so bad now~.

      tammie guerlain proves positively addicting sometimes ;D don’t look through the archives you’ll see LE things you’ll absolutely droll over!

      • Tammie

        Yes, so addicting lol. Luckily only the gloss so far, but I can see myself grabbing it every season/time they release an LE lol.

        I started to look at your archives for Guerlain but had to stop for that reason! haha

        • the Muse

          lol tammie danger, danger, danger wait until the Holidays..OMG

          • Tammie

            Haha oh man, I’ll have to make sure to save up! Although thankfully I am not too into face powder and I think I am mostly good on lipstick…so my main threat is just the lip gloss xD;;

  • Anitacska

    I saw the pink one when I was on holiday in Florida, but got the Terra Inca bronzer and eyeshadow palette, plus a Rouge Automatique instead.

  • deb

    I’ve been wanting to try one but the price keeps holding me back. I’ll probably cave!

  • Cynthia C.

    I ended up getting Bahia and Maya… I was a little intimidated by Havana, but after having played with these I am definitely going back for Havana. One tip I got was to use Havana as a liner… these are just beautiful, and budgeproof once dry.

    • the Muse

      cynthia so happy you got two ;-D you def need to go back for number 3 ;-D I really am lovin’ these!
