By Terry Spring 16 collection has a few new products that are worth taking a second look at. Today I want to discuss Ombre Star in #14 ($44) and Rose de Baume in Mauve Moon ($56), two products that had me impulsively buy without swatching. Let us take a look at both of these new additions to the line before I briefly discuss my thoughts:
I am a huge fan of the By Terry Baume de Rose so it is no surprise that their newest shade “Mauve Moon” is added to that list. This new shade is a cool-toned lilac with medium pigment and lots of moisture. I love how bold and bright it looks in the jar yet transfers on the lips to a slightly warmer pink/plum with lavender undertones. Here is a closer look at this new shade:
It lasted a good hour (which is long for me) and left a gorgeous pink/plum stain on my lips. Please keep in mind that I have naturally pigmented lips and Mauve Moon just enhanced that. I think it will look flattering on anyone who has sallow/olive undertones as the mauve color cancels out any yellow. I also think fair-skinned blondes would love this color but this is not a color that is suitable for everyone. This will be one of my staples this summer and I am thrilled and satisfied with my purchase.
By Terry Ombre Blackstar (review HERE) is one of my favorite creamy shadow sticks on the market. The choice of shades with the pigment and long wearability is what makes this stand out in the beauty world. The latest shade is #14, a dark black/navy with silver specks and semi-shimmer. This color is simply stunning and glamorous and I couldn’t be more thrilled to own it. Let us take a closer look at his new shade:
I like to apply this in different ways. One way is directly onto my eye lids and then using a smudge brush to spread from my lash line to the crease. Another way would be using it as a liner close to my lash line and used with my Tom Ford liner brush ($52). It all depends on the look you are going for and wanting to achieve. In the image posted below, I used it all over my lid and as a liner to create a very dramatic look. I used an eye primer (By Terry eye primer $56 is great) and then the black ombrestar all over my lid and blended like crazy. I also used the Tom Ford eye quad in Orchid Haze ($80) in the crease and brow bone to create the perfect smoky eye. It lasted a good six hours before I saw any fading or creasing.
Verdict? I absolutely love both products and highly recommend them if the shades work for your skin tone and/or a certain look you want to achieve. By Terry is all about quality while being in tune with what is happening on the runway. I am loving the direction she has been taking and look forward to future launches.
