By Terry: The Winter Warmers

Okay, I'm guilty. I've been really busy the past two weeks and have neglected this poor ol' blog. However, I am now back in business and with a lot to post about so I should really get cracking...

If you're a regular in the the blogosphere then I'm sure you would've come across this brand countless of times. By Terry is a luxurious beauty brand discovered by Terry de Gunzberg, the mastermind behind the cult classic YSL Touche Eclat. I began to dabble into this company about a year ago with taking the plunge and buying the hit lip balm, Baume de Rose. Amazing. I loved it. Now I wanted to try something a little different and these have certainly warmed my cockles.

I loved YSL Touche Eclat but felt I needed something slightly more full coverage, this is where By Terry Touche Veloutee caught my eye and I snatched it up without hesitation (I wear Shade 02 in Cream) .It claims itself to be a full coverage highlighting, concealing pen whilst delivering a perfectly natural look. It is all singing, all dancing. It totally banishes my tired looking eyes and tricks others into thinking I have had ample amount of beauty sleep (99% of the time, I really haven't). It has a fantastic brush, large enough for one sweep to be enough per eye and it smells divine. It seems to hold up well most of the day on me and I also use it around any nasty dark areas around my nose, winner winner chicken dinner! This is certainly a staple in my make up bag and will be repurchased, bright eyes are always on trend, right?

The next little purchase has left me sitting on the fence. As the original Baume de Rose firmly holds a place in my heart I was most definitely captured by the newest edition of this product. Or De Rose Balm Baume Precieux (phew) is basically Baume de Rose in a tube enriched with 24 Carat Pink Gold which encourages cell renewal. This pretty much works the best on its own, however not a massive fan of the gritty texture and I don't find it as nourishing as the original. Yet, I do feel like looks really effortless and pretty on the lips and probably a little bit festive too! I would also like to think it gives me a Rosie Huntington-Whiteley pout, a girl can dream.
