I was very excited when I heard about the By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer lipstick launch, however the more reviews I read the more hesitant I became, so I decided to only order one.
The lipstick is meant to
moisturise, fill in wrinkles and fine lines, boost volume, smooth and
protects the lips.
I bought #9 Dare to Bare (£25) which is a sheer natural rose with a gloss
The texture feels extremely creamy (as you can probably note the slight
smooched sides in my close-up picture below) and applies very smooth.
It was all feeling very comfortable and
moisturising and then something changed. The lipstick seems to set within less than a minute, and though I do not notice any
negative effect in the applied look, its the feel of it. It feels drying
and a bit uncomfortable. If I were blind testing this I would say it has
the feel of a long lasting lipstick, which is somewhat redundant as it
still has the short wear time and sheer pigment that you would expect
from a sheer/balm formula.
By Terry is one of my favourite brands so I was quite surprised that
this didn't deliver. Though I like the colour, for something that is marketed as having balm like qualities,
this just didn't perform for me.
Ingredients below, the lipstick is strongly scented.
I bought this from spacenk.com
