The color in the tube.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Word of Mouth
Sheer lipstick #35
Formula: If you’re familiar with Face Fabric foundation, imagine the texture and feel, but in a blush. It’s basically a silicone based gel formula. You literally need the size of a pinhead on your finger to use on both cheeks, because it’s pure pigment. They’re so easy to blend out and sheer, but they do set pretty quickly. Once it’s on your face, they last a long time. 😉 Last year I purchased Blushing Fabric #1 and #3 and I reach for these quite often.
Blushing Fabric #4: The best way to describe it in terms of color is…cinnamon. It’s a slightly burned terracotta kind of shade? Uhm, let’s just stick with cinnamon. This particular one will be a learning curve for me, because it seems like if I apply too much of this on, it can be easily seen as a sunburned kind of look. I know I can pull it off, but when I return to the USA, I’ll have to talk to my MA on how to use it.
Blushing Fabric #5: It’s a pinky purple color and it’s really a gorgeous shade. sigh. I know I’ll be using this one often. I know this one will sell out quickly because it’s a fool-proof color.
Sheer lipstick #37: The the best way to describe it is…imagine a very soft orange cream color (like ice cream), but add in a hint of beige with a beautiful sparkle. On me it lightens up my natural lip color and on my hand it looks kind of ordinary (as in you can find another color in your stash that looks similar). But the effect and shine on your lips is incredible. SO incredible. It’s soft enough that it doesn’t scream orange, but it’s definitely not a boring clean peach color either. Lighter skintones will adore this one. On me it’s a light orange-beige. sigh. I wasn’t even planning to buy a lipstick, but I may have to try the others, because they look so beautiful.
Onto the swatches. I rushed to swatch them so they are a bit uneven, but you can get the idea:

Sheer lipstick #37
Formula: It’s like a lipgloss and lipstick in one. To me, they’re definitely more on the gloss side. Or better yet, they’re like a lipgloss in lipstick form. They’re weightless in feel, and the texture is so beautiful on your lips. If you’re a person who likes Chantecaille lipchics, but a bit more slip and more lightweight in formula, then the extra silky lipsticks are designed for you. I will say since they’re are very glossy in feel, the lasting power isn’t as long as your standard lipstick, but the formula totally makes up for it. I will advise because of the softness of this lipstick, do NOT leave it in your car on a warm day, let alone hot. I can see this melting pretty easily.
Color: So apparently the name is pink opal, but the color is nothing pink whatsoever. But then whenever does the name of the lip item actually represent the actual color? I would consider it a darker peach color. When I saw it in the tube, I didn’t think it would cover my pigmented lips, plus the formula you would think it’s sheer. Of course, this color definitely shows up true to color on my lips. wooohoo !
Price and size: $52 for .07 oz or 2 grams.

The box that it comes in.
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.
