Packaging: It comes in a clear tube, black lid and it’s a doe foot applicator.
Is it worth buying? Yes. It’s phenomenal!! I like this more than Tarte, Benetint, and MACs. I need to get Flouron and Fever next.
Their buzzing intensity has been poured into the most vividly delectable hues imaginable, to make your lips appear instantly fuller, and bewitchingly luminous.
The box that it comes in.
I’m so glad I finally got this color, because it’s such a pretty shade. 🙂 Yay!
Today I had the pleasure of seeing Dustin Lujan at the Le Metier de Beaute counter today and guess who got to see the new Smoldering Embarkment kaleidoscope!!?!?
I apologize for the bad photo, I was in a rush to just take a picture. Either way, Isn’t the silver packaging pretty?
Dustin’s inspiration for this palette were colors aren’t like any of the existing colors, but also keeping in mind colors that complement the permanent line. He wanted this palette to be colors that you can wear on a daily basis, or even using the shades for a subtle smokey eye.
I’ve been asked if any of these shades are duplicates from the permanent line, and the answer is no.
Please feel free to call the counter and pre-order by phone: 212-872-8612
A common question in terms of how to wear the colors together, here’s a video seen here. Courtesy of finding it via google and The Non-Blonde blog providing the link.
So I purchased some By Terry Terrbly lipsticks 🙂 She has new shades for spring, and they’re all gorgeous to say the least. Lots of fun pinks !
I purchased a couple, but for the sake of the spring season, let’s discuss Torrid Rose:
it’s a slightly warm pink-rose color. It’s not a full on fuchsia (how it looks in the tube). At first glance it looks cool (by appearance in the tube and on my arm) but once applied it’s definitely a slightly warm pink. The formula of these are wonderful.
Packaging: They’re in a silver tube with a magnetic enclosure. There’s no heft (in terms of weight), but the packaging is sturdy to me. The lipstick itself has “Terrybly” along the side of the tube and when you open the tube, there’s By Terry written diagonally (lasered on) below the base of the lipstick. Simple, sleek. I’m a fan of simple, sans-decoration packaging.
Texture and Formula: They’re weightless, moisturizing and the color selection, although it’s small, they’re well thought out colors. I do adore the texture, soooo moisturizing without being creamy. The one thing about these is that they’re not as opaque as I had imagined them to be. They are lipsticks, but they’re slightly shy of being full on OPAQUE. They’re also not as long lasting as a Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani, but they don’t wear off quickly either. They do fade into a beautiful stain too, which is great. With these lipsticks, I feel like I need to wear a lipliner to get the effect I want, but that’s just me personally.
Finish and appearance: There’s no sparkle in these (yay), and on my lips, it’s very shy of being full on opaque.
Onto the pictures !!
I love how it’s so bright, but not OTT that Blow can be at times. I’d wear this by itself during the day. It’s a color that you can blot and it won’t look as bright or intense.
Is it worth getting: I LOVE this color. finally, a bright pink I can get away with that doesn’t look overdone during the day. If you have a lot of pinks, you can pass on it, I think. For $48, this is a nice lipstick you can splurge on.
