By Terry has launched their Holiday 2019 collection with some amazing limited edition launches – makeup infused with skincare. I have always loved the holiday collection from By Terry, like last year’s (here). From this year’s collection, sharing the must-have launches in this article – Starlight Rose CC Powder, Starlight Rose Glow Booster CC Serum, and Starlight Baume de Rose. The stunning Starlight Rose Collection is inspired by precious gemstones and By Terry’s signature ingredient – Rose.
Starlight Rose CC Powder is a limited-edition trio of Radiance boosting powder, colour correcting powder which evens out the skin while providing skincare benefits. The illuminating powder captures the light and boosts the natural radiance. It colour corrects, smoothes lines and blurs imperfections without drying the skin. The single shade suits every skin tone and based on how much intensity you desire, it is easily buildable. The texture of the powder is silky-smooth.
For my medium skin tone with golden undertones – the powder looks good on the skin, I do not use it as a finishing powder though. I like it as a highlighting powder or a hint of pop on my eyes. The white and pink shades in the powder look a little icy on me – but it is holiday collection – so makes sense too. The peachy shade is something I like more for my skin tone and better suits it.
When I lightly swirl my brush in all the three shades, it gives a beautiful radiance without being icy – all the shades work together to minimize any extra effects to give a natural finish. And as you see the picture already, the embossing and packaging of the powder are exquisite. And it can also be applied to the décolletage, arms and legs to give them a little perk up these holidays.
Starlight Rose Glow Booster CC Serum is a very lightweight brightening face primer with serum texture that colour corrects and gives radiance to the skin while providing skincare benefits. This limited-edition gold-rose version of the iconic Brightening CC Serum evens out and instantly brightens the skin to look positively glowing for the party season. The formula is easily buildable.
I have been a long time fan of the CC Serum from the brand and it has been one of my most used products to give a natural radiance and healthy glow to the skin. I have reviewed it a few times in the past but the only difference is the shade – 4 Sunny Flash (reviewed here) and this new limited edition shade made me so excited to try. As there is no tint to the formula – this new shade suits all skin tones and imparts a beautiful radiance to the skin while blurring the problem areas – overall a smooth glowy and bright skin.
Starlight Baume de Rose is a limited edition travel-friendly liquid lip balm. It is a cult classic product from the brand and has been loved by many – I am one of them. I have used this lip balm for a few years now – repurchased a few times already. It is one of the best lip balms and I use it at night before bed – even when my lips are dry and peeling – this helps. It is very nourishing and has a glossy finish – the lips look supple. The velvety-rich formula glides on effortlessly and leaves a non-sticky glossy finish with a subtle shine while the delicate rose scent uplifts the senses. It can also be applied to the nails and cuticles to make them feel softer and smoother.
Overall, a beautiful holiday collection – the formula as well as the packaging is just stunning and definitely something you can check out for yourself or gift a loved one.
