Guerlain’s limited edition Terracotta collection for Summer 2011 includes Ombre Fusion in Bahia ($35), a creamy light multi-dimensional light peachy pink shadow.
Unless this color is applied sheerly, it does not work well as an overall lid color unless you are going for a retro-60′s beach look. Rather, it’s best to use with a deeper color, such as Guerlain’s Ombre Fusion in Maya (or Havana) layered on the outer 1/2 of the eye or a deeper powder shadow. It’s a pretty highlighting color on the browbone, again with a sheer touch. Here’s a comparison with the light and dark swatch:
You can see how lightly the creme skates over the texture of the skin. This next picture really drives this point home. Here is a comparison between this Guerlain Ombre Fusion with my pink Chanel Ombre D’eau in River #87. You can see how different the texture of these products are. Bahia sits nicely on the skin, filling ridges, where the Chanel looks dry. I must admit that this comparison is a bit unfair. This is because this particular Chanel River does not have a good texture and seems flat compared to the other Chanel Ombre D’eau line (many of which are much nicer than River). But you can certainly see that Guerlain Bahia has a much nicer texture and richer tone.
