Do you know about By Terry? Yes, Sephora carries their foundation right now but they’re actually a French brand that’s best known for their ultra-lux $50 Rose Balm, a lipbalm that is rose-scented. Reviews of the balm are mixed – many of the people who have shelled out the money for it absolutely adore it while some think that it’s not worth the money. Honestly, yes, it smells very nice but I don’t think it does anything extraordinary.
But, like most makeup, you get this balm because you want it, not because you need it or it does something extra-special. The packaging really is pretty and like most high-end products, the balm has quite a weight to it.
My friend Liza recently picked it up on a trip to NYC – you can’t get it anywhere in Canada, so I thought I’d post some pictures of it. The consistency is gel-like and the rose scent isn’t very strong or overpowering. It worked well but I don’t know if I would buy it.
What do you think?
