Product Review | By Terry Baume De Rose Lip Gloss Set

Monday, April 27, 2015

I literally have had this By Terry Baume De Rose Lip Gloss Set since Christmas, but I've hesitated to showcase this because it's so expensive... It's a splurge item for sure. Is it really worth the money? Weeell, we'll get to that.

I figured the timing might be good now, cause this could be a great Mother's day gift if your mama loves her lip products and you feel like (and can afford to) pampering/spoiling her a little this year...Or you know, get one for you too, or only you (you cheap bastard).

Here's the dealio though, I'm not necessarily CRAZY about them on their own, as far as color is concerned, but I've been able to create some of my favorite combos of life with these. That being said, I think the color selection is well thought out and independently these glosses are smooth and SUPER hydrating. They are a tad sticky (nothing overly annoying) but the lasting power is surprising! They're not really meant to give you bold color, so that's why I like pairing them with a lipstick. Don't get me wrong, they are beautiful on their own if you like a lip color that's more on the sheer side. But what's cool about them is they are enriched with rose wax and shea butter to really replenish your lips. So they are a legit powerful lip balm. Healthy, moisturized lips with a tinted sheen? Yes please. OH! And they smell phenomenal! Like roses, I loooove it!

As far as value is concerned, for a little luxury, it's actually quite reasonably priced. And now I know what you're thinking ; "Val you really think $89 for lip glosses is a good deal??" And to you who now thinks I'm a spoiled princess, I say YES, yes I think it's a good deal. You get five lip glosses in the set, that's about $18 per gloss which is no worse than your MAC or other high end glosses, except it's freaking By Terry. If you're not familiar with the brand, it's cause the truth is, none of us are fancy enough for it. Ha! No but seriously, I've only ever heard celebrities talk about it...GLAM girl!

Now again, I got this as a gift, which is why I think it makes a wonderful one. But it's also a great set if you want a little taste of luxury. Cause, let's face it, that's what you pay for. They don't feel or smell cheap and I always feel extra glam when wearing them.

You know me, I have a lot of love for affordable beauty, but sometimes a taste of the finer things is ok right? 

Let me know if you'd like other Mother's Day gift ideas or if you hate really high end related posts! I love what I love, but I wanna cater to your loves and needs ;)

Talk to you soon!
