|Rouge Terrybly Cherry Cherry Lipstick - £30.50|
I have only used a few products from By Terry and one of those, Baume de Rose, I absolutely hate (too greasy and not at all moisturising). Therefore, I'm not at all familiar with the brand and so when the new By Terrybly premium products (more expensive) were launched, I wasn't especially interested. I'd never tried an ordinary By Terry lipstick before so I couldn't envision me paying enough more for one a By Terrybly one.
As usual though, I started to see other bloggers' swatches and they began to appear more appealing. When I was in London last month, I managed to quickly sneak in to Space NK and see the lipsticks for themselves and I fell for them in a big way. I thought that with Tom Ford's Pure Pink, that was all I needed but once a beauty addict always a beauty addict, so I used some indulge points to get the shade Cherry Cherry.
The official take on the Rouge Terrybly lipsticks is:
'A volumising and firming lipstick enriched with the By Terry exclusive anti-ageing Lumilip Technology to rejuvenate and embellish lips. An extra-comforting and plumping lip elixir which combines rich colours and active ingredients with an anti-ageing formula that works to prevent thining of the lips. Filled with ultra pure high colour pigments, the texture offers complete and extra-smoothing colour. Extra-fine and silky-smoothing, it glides onto the lips and reshapes the contours without heaviness, plumping them without drying. Delicately perfumed and filled with active ingredients, it pampers the lips and repairs them in depth.'

Although the price is high, at £30.50, I don't mind paying that for the perfect shade or the perfect texture. My lips are incredibly dry and irritated so I find many cheaper lipsticks tend to exaggerate this. I tend to be overjoyed when I find a lipstick I can wear without needing copious amounts of lip balm!
