Spring/Summer 2015 Color Favorites:
Cellularose Blush Glace, Ice Dream
Last year, By Terry launched Cellularose Blush Glace, a cream blush formula that comes in three shades: Rose Melba, Flower Sorbet and Frozen Petal. The consistency of Cellularose Blush Glace is more like a gel than a cream, in By Terry speak, “Baume d’eau, a cream texture that equals thirst quenching fresh sensation” to the skin.
My favorite shade of Cellularose Blush Glace, Ice Dream, is from By Terry’s Spring Collection 2015. Unlike its predecessors, it is designed to be used on the entire face and well as the cheekbones. This beautiful rose gold shade is suitable for all skin tones and my favorite product to create a sun kissed radiance to summer skin. Ice Dream Cellularose Blush Glace can be used as a highlighter, a bronzer and one of my favorite uses, a beautiful way to warm up my eyelid crease on days when I am going for a “no-makeup” look.
As with all of the other By Terry products, the ingredient list for Cellularose Blush Glace in Ice Dream is quite impressive, especially for a color cosmetic line. White Rose Cells brighten and promote radiance to the skin and translucent mother of pearl gives watercolor-like sheen to the skin. The smoothing effect is attributed to the polyamide, boron and nylon microspheres in the formula. The hydrating cream-gel blush formula also contains Vitamin E and Rosa Damascena Floral Water which diffuses unique properties into the skin for fuller and fresh cheeks.
Hyaluronic Sheer Nude Hydra-Balm Fill & Plump Lipstick with UV Defense in Shade No. 4, Sheer Glow.
(not on the By Terry website but you can see this product in person at The Cosmetic Market Avalon, the exclusive vendor for By Terry products in Georgia)
I am a pigment loving girl when it comes to lip color so I was surprised at my being smitten with this very sheer peach lip color. To be honest, I don’t think I feel for the color as much as the lip balm like formula that glides onto the lips and protects my lips from harmful UV rays. The plumping affect is due to hyaluronic acid microspheres that lock in moisture and create more volume to the lips. Hyaluronic Sheer Nude Hydra-Balm is made from water, but according to Terry de Gunzburg, it’s not like liquid water. The By Terry research and development department discovered a way to solidify water.
This is one of the reasons I adore the By Terry line, the brand’s founder pushes the limits of cosmetic and scientific technology in order to create color cosmetic formulas that exceed a woman’s highest expectations for a luxury cosmetic line. Hyaluronic acid is on my top five list of “must-have” anti-aging ingredients and I am thrilled that it is a core ingredient in the entire By Terry line.
Cellularose Cleansing Oil
If you have met me or read many of my skin care posts you know how I feel about using precleansing with an oil based cleanser. (Non-negotiable in my skin care regimen!!)
By Terry’s Cellularose Cleansing Oil is a non-abrasive, nourishing cleanser that removes dirt, oil, debris and waterproof makeup from the skin without stripping it of its moisture. This skin loving formula contains jojoba, camellia and olive oil, antioxidant protection provided by Cherry Blossom Extract and clarifies and brightens the skin with White Rose cells.
Baume De Rose is one of the most iconic products in the luxury cosmetic industry. This rich, creamy formula is a lifesaving salve for chapped lips and distressed cuticles. Terry calls it a “hero” product, a cult classic that celebrities buy in volume (20 at a time!!). Baume De Rose, like all By Terry products is a prestige level cosmetic made with natural essences from real roses and raw materials and extracts that are used in the production of high end fragrances. These ingredients are very rare and difficult to produce which is the reason for the higher price point on all of the products in the By Terry line.
Baume De Rose nourishes, repairs and protects the lips while promoting a natural glossy finish that is never sticky. Ingredients include Rose flower wax and petal oil that boosts cell renewal, healing and overall improvement of the lips. Shea butter soothes and moisturizes while Vitamin E and Titanium Dioxide provide antioxidant and UV protection to the lips. Baume De Rose is lightly scented with the signature By Terry scent of fresh roses and is a must have in my beauty arsenal. In fact, I also use Baume De Rose off label as a moisturizing cream under my eyes before bed on nights when I need a major moisture boost!
These four products are not the only products in the By Terry line that I am obsessed with and highly recommend to my clients. In fact, the By Terry line has at least five more products that I believe are best in their category but you will have to continue reading my Friday Faves to learn more!
The By Terry products can be purchased online or locally at The Cosmetic Market Avalon in Alpharetta, Georgia. For details call 678-894-4641. As for the gorgeous limited edition, Cellularose Blush Glace in Ice Dream, quantity’s are limited so get yours before there all gone!!
In 1988, after 15 years working in haute couture cosmetics, self-described “beauty designer,” Terry de Gunzburg, launched By Terry, her own signature line of makeup and skincare. To learn more about Terry, read my examiner article entitled, “Meet Terry de Gunzburg, woman behind the brand”
Sending peace, love and happiness to all!!
