My whirlwind shopping trip to Paris (calling a spade a spade) a few months ago, saw me going just a little crazy at the By Terry counter. The truth is, I had so little time (I literally went straight from the store to my hotel to the airport), I had to just read things off my list, and I hadn’t had a chance to play with any of the summer collection. Once home, I saw swatches of the By Terry Tint to Lip Pink Palace and cursed my luck, because I knew it was going to have to be mine, and I could have gotten it for less in Paris.
I reserved the right to walk away from it, but when I went and saw it in person, I knew that was never going to happen. And I have no regrets. It has become my favorite summer lip color, and the summer has only just started.
By Terry Tint to Lip Pink Palace is a berry/pink lip stain with a dual finish (it also comes in an orange shade). Actually, I have found you can get 3 different finishes out of it. When the tube is settled, you can get just a lovely berry stain on your lips, with just a hint of a little bit of shimmer.
But when you dip the doe foot applicator into the pooled shimmer, when it’s settled, you can get a lovely pink frost, almost akin to MAC Pink Maribu lipstick, only a bit more blue leaning.
It does wear off over the day, sometimes leaving more of a stain around the edges, but I love the effect it makes, so I actually enjoy reapplying it.
And, even more, this is just the perfect summer tint of pink for your lips. If you’re like me and always feel naked without a drop of color on your lips, even on the beach when you’re supposed to be au naturel, this is JUST the thing.
I put together a really easy, fast, fresh look to demonstrate. I just used a little Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Birthday Suit on my lid with MAC Satin Taupe Eyeshadow in the crease. I always feel like I need some definition of my eyes, so I kept some eyeliner close to the lashline. Then some mascara. A drop of blush. Done.
This is how the stain looks with 3 applications of the stain + minimal shimmer.
And just for good measure, here they are side by side. I think the non-flash photos show the difference off better.
Either way, it’s perfect. My effortless summer look is sorted! What are your favorite summer colors?
