You can get red anywhere. but I wanted this because of the Birchbox video showing the gal wearing it in Vermillion. I liked the way the tone of red looked on her. I had been wanting that exact orangish/red tone.
And I love By Terry brand. But $49 for a lipstick was a bit of a reach. So I waited and waited. I think I waited until I had a bit of a bonus and some other promo. But I finally got one! I got the Vermillion of course and it might be just more of another red, but I have to say there are some heavy duty moisturizer and protectants in this stick. It stays on and moisturizes my lips for a long long time. And the case is kind of cool - it has a magnetic closure on the rim. Very cool.
Anyway, as a red, it might not be a standout but as a product, it does have its own specific moisturizing and that is not found in many lipsticks I buy. I have some high end ones and this one definitely has something extra moisturizing and protecting in it.
It comes in a little pouch too. For that price you feel like the magnetic closure and pouch are kind of the extra touches you paid for. So that was nice. But if you just want a red, they are out there and can be found for many price ranges. Like I said, this was an indulgence I was willing to have and waited for. So, if you want to indulge, the moisture alone is worth it. But so is the name. By Terry has fantastic products! She is the makeup artist that invented the Touche L' Eclat pen for Yves St. Laurent! So you are in good hands with By Terry products!
The most amazing lipstick ever!!
This is the best-feeling lipstick you will ever wear! I know the price tag seems a bit ridiculous ($50 for a lipstick!?!?), but it feels absolutely amazing on your lips, like pure luxury. I love the nude color. I first heard about the By Terry brand in an article in the Wall Street Journal, and I've been hooked ever since. I love these products!!!
Really light color, shows lip imperfections
I had high hopes for this lipstick, and I like how it feels on my lips, but the color is far too light. I have fair skin and light hair, but it was still too pale pink in the Cupid Peony color. It also showed every imperfection in my lips (dryness, creases). I think I would like it a lot in another, darker/brighter shade. I will be returning it and purchasing another shade to give it another try.
Nearly $50 for a lipstick seems like a lot, but luckily I had saved up enough Birchbox points and basically got this for free! Now that I have tried it though, I can definitely see myself making the splurge on more colors in this future. Wearing this lipstick just makes me feel so luxurious. I ordered the shade Frenetic Vermillion which is absolutely the most perfect shade of bright, fire-y red-orange. I get so many compliments when I wear this! It has a lovely matte finish and is ridiculously opaque and pigmented. It goes on super creamy and doesn't dry out my lips or give a "cracked look" like some matte lipsticks give. My only complaint is that mine broke off after a few uses, but I was trying to apply it in a hurry and I'm going to try to freeze it and put it back together. It's still usable though! Nothing will stop me from wearing this lipstick.
Smells, feel, and looks so good!
I love this lipstick. I have no idea what I was ordering and it ended up being fantastic. It's pricy but I know why. It's smooth and soft, yet stays on!
I like the packaging and the texture of this lipstick. I purchased the frenetic vermillion which is reddish-orange. I have fair to medium skin color with yellow undertones.Don't think it looked that nice on me.
I love this product! I got the Terrybly Nude and loved the color. I tried the Peony and it was a little too bright pink. This product is creamy and makes your lips feel sexy! It is the best Lipstick I have ever used.
