By Terry Limited Edition Rose Balm Tinted Collection
Another Christmas gift to my self from last years holiday editions :). I’m still reviewing this as it’s another great gift pack option to look out for next time By Terry has any limited editions/holiday editions; or deciding whether to purchase the full size versions. This edition was also available for quite awhile on Mecca online.
The price might make you gasp ($110AU) but when you work out how much they are individually you quickly realise it’s worth the value you get. I bought mine online and the image wasn’t the same as what I received with the colours, it actually put me off and I almost returned it as I have fair skin and didn’t think it would be suitable for me, and too risky since I paid a lot for it. I scrolled through the reviews to see if anyone complained too… I read one that said the same thing about the images but kept hers, also had fair skin and really liked them; so it was enough for me to keep and try :)
The low down….
They aren't as pigmented as you would think by looking at them, but as it says, definitely a tinted balm. As you can see with the swatches I built up the colour with a few swipes, which is nice to have that buildable option as I’m finding there to be less choice these days for tinted balms. They are heavily scented with rose and you can feel a little bit of tackiness when you smack/rub your lips together, but they really moisturise your lips!! It’s probably the first time I've ever been impressed with a tinted lip gloss that actually moisturises your lips instead of making them feel dry after a while.
The colours are (from left to right in swatches): Baume De Rose, 1, 6, 3, 5 -Not sure why they are in numbers but that is what's on them. I think the colours are a good selection and would suit any skin type, even the purple colour
Noskam rating: Love love it! Definitely recommend!
