There’s no nicer make up treat then a fancy lipstick and what could be nicer than a lipstick from By Terry – the ultra luxe range with some pricy but really gorgeous products.
I have never tried a By Terry lipstick or lip gloss before, so this is all new to me. These Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge lipsticks are supposed to be somewhere between a lip balm and a plumping lip colour. The colour is shiny and it has a melt away texture.
By Terry’s new red balm with hyaluronic acid treats lips and adorns them in glossy-plumping shine. Bringing added volume, lips are left soft and supple with an ultra-glamorous glossy finish.
- A plumping and hydra-filler formula
- Fills in wrinkles and fine lines
- Moisturizes lips & plumps up the mouth
- Protects lips from UV rays
- Adorns lips in an ultra-comfortable sheer shade
The packaging is a simple sleek medium weight silver tube. It looks very nice, although it is prone to finger tip marks.
The colour I have is 11. Fatal Shot, a deep rich red and it’s a colour that I would never choose for myself. If I were choosing I would go for a nude so this is a nice change from the norm.
The texture of this lipstick is indeed very soft, melt away, and glossy. It reminds me of a ultra soft lipstick/balm, perhaps even softer than some lip balms.
This is supposed to be a ‘sheer’ lipstick but I found this colour extremely pigmented – I’ve heard the other shades are much sheerer, but this one is very very pigmented .I am wearing just 2 light swipes below.
If there is one thing about this lipstick and this colour is that the formula is so creamy, is so rich and pigmented that the formula and the colour can get a bit messy. It’s got the texture of a balm, so the urge is to slap it on, but this colour is so deep that you have to be careful and neat with it. I had to do a bit of cleaning up after application to make sure it didn’t look like it was bleeding…I think something like Urban Decay’s new Ozone lip liner (which is clear and stops bleeding) would be useful to keep this colour on the lips.
I had a venti coffee and I still had a ton of colour on my lips afterwards. So THIS colour is very long lasting.
The more I look at this red the more I like it! I like the lovely sheen it has too. I’d definitely look for another one to add to my collection, but quite a natural colour.
This is £25 from SpaceNk.
