By Terry "Terrybly" lipstick in 101

Well this is a turn up for the books, isn't it? Straight hair!

I don't think I have worn my hair straight for about 2 years such is my devotion to the conical wand. Today I just fancied a change and I like to see how long my hair looks when straight so 5 minutes with a spectacularly dusty Cloud Nine straightener resulted in this...


And that wasn't the only thing different today....oh yes, the lipstick!

This lipstick has been in my collection for nearly a year - and yet I have never really given it a chance. And it definitely deserves one.

It's smooth to apply, glides on with rich pigment, has decent staying power and feels non-drying. It's from By Terry and called Flirty Rosy (101), part of the Rouge Terrybly range.



This is my "grown up" nude lipstick. It's slightly rosy/brown so defines and adds colour without feeling too theatrical or strong. I have worn it all day - even whilst cleaning and dog walking :) - and I think this could/should easily become part of my life.

I wore this with a very full face...even false lashes! And I wasn't even doing anything exciting today. My only excuse is that the weekend is my beauty experimentation time.

So the sake of completeness I will run through the rest of the products I wore....




* A blend of Rachel K CC cream and By Terry Cover Expert foundation  (Vanilla Beige) all over the face - I really like both of these products individually. I am not sure why I decided to blend them together today but hey, I did. I used my fingers to get an even coverage.

* MAC Prep+Prime Light Boost highlighter - this is my second pen...I don't think it has been mentioned before but it's a fantastic under eye product. The yellow tone counteracts any redness or signs of a busy week.

* MAC Girlie shadow - my blush today was this...and I applied liberally (read: heavily). It's a nice neutral pink that also worked lightly brushed over the lids.

* Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting powder in Medium - I am obsessed with this product. Obsessed. It's an amazing contour - he really did create a colour that mimics a shadow - and also my crease/lower lashes product of choice. I can't get through a day without this and today was no different.

* MAC Crystal Avalanche - if you like a subtle inner corner highlight this is not the colour for you - it's a bright pearl - but I love lightly applying it both there and in the centre of the lid.

* YSL waterproof eye pencil - Mix Stila eye kajal with Urban Decay Zero and you get this. All the creaminess and intensity with none of the panda eye.  I apply this along the upper lashline and then blend with a stubby little Laura Mercier brush that I absolutely love.

* MUFE Smokey Lash - cannot beat this mascara. Nothing else to say...could this be tube number 10?

All of the above is pretty standard for me - it's more or less what I wear on a daily basis. The big difference though was the lip product and it's amazing how a lipstick can completely change your look and mood. I felt really happy wearing this and loved how it added some colour and brightness to my face.

So Flirty Rosy, here's a proper welcome to my life. I promise not to bury you in the lipstick drawer any more.

What's your favourite lip product of the moment?

  2. Stunning colour, you look absolutely beautiful in that photo :) I'm still clinging on to my Estee Lauder 'Bitten Fig', but seasons are changing and I don't think I'll be able to get away with a vampy berry lip much longer!

  13. You look gorgeous both with curls and straight hair
    - you are such a classic beauty :-) thanks for sharing a breakdown of your products - I've heard nothing but raves about the CC cream - and if it is responsible for your dewy foundation look ... I need it! Also super interested in the MAC highlighter pen and the blush.

  14. Wow you look amazing with straight hair and I've scribbled down the name of that lipstick - I am so suggestible I could slap myself.

    ReplyDelete
  15. You are looking great!

    Winter and dry lips have had me gravitate around Revlon Lip Butters for a while now (mostly Candy Apple and Raspberry Pie) as well as the very moisturizing Dior Addict (It Pink and Miss Dior being the favorites).
    But I'm dying to try the By Terry lipsticks and this post hasn't helped the itch!

    ReplyDelete
  16. This looks stunning on you! lately I've been loving MAC's Viva Glam V lipstick, as well as some neutrogena tinted lip balms - I'm all about easy lip colors right now! Nothing too fussy, or that I have to apply carefully,

    ReplyDelete
  17. You look so fresh and put together, gorgeous!

    My favourite lipstick right now is MAC's Please Me, I feel like it really brightens my face. My mum bought it and realised it didn't work for her, all the more for me then ;)

  20. That lipstick is gorgeous. It is a bit pricey but over the past week I have been "naughty" buying and have no right to say that. My favourite lip product at the minute is YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in number 11. I am normally a nude lipstick wearer and the site of this dark plum made me a bit dubious, but goes on very sheer and looks lovely! If you want to check my post about it feel free. I love it. Great blog post and thanks for tempting me to buy yet another lipstick. I will be poor by the end of this month I swear. Haha!

    I'm currently loving the Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Plumb Rose as mentioned in my Feb Fav blog post.

  46. Hi Laura!

    You look great with straight hair! Very sleek and modern...
    That lip shade is really flattering on you!
    At the moment I'm loving Revlon's Lip Butter in "Pink Truffle"! I love the name, it's a darker nude, very similar to yours actually.
    Have a lovely weekend dear!

  47. Wow wow! Great job on the straight hair - it looks so thick and healthy. And the lipstick is terrific. I've been slapping on some Rimmel colour lately, and it's definitely given life to the dull winter look.

  48. It's amazing how much hair can alter our appearance. Though I love wavy hair on you, this looks gorgeous as well! Lately I have been sporting bright lips, mainly MAC So Chaud and Candy Yum Yum :)

  63. I love this colour on you! I like By Terry too- I just have to dig really deep to justify the prices! (Hasnt stopped me though!!).

  64. You know I think I prefer a colour on your lips, (that sounds weird as I typed it) It really brings out your eyes. It nude lips tend to drain colour from our faces!

  78. Hi Laura,

    loving the no tan look! Very fresh! I have the KA sculpting powder but can't for the life of me put it on without it looking like a hot mess!! What brush do you use to put it on? and would you pair a bronzer with this?

    ReplyDelete
  79. During the winter time I have really dry lips so my go to lip product is C.O. Bigelow Lavender Salve at the moment. It's really moisturizing and smells divine! But when I don't have chapped lips I love L'Oreal Rouge Caresse in Rose Mademoiselle.
