I am so much in love with the By Terry Hippy Chic Summer Collection 2018 which I reviewed here, I have been loving to get ready in the morning just to play and use the beautiful products. There are more exciting new launches from the brand, which are perfect for anyone who needs sun protection (and yes we all need that I know) and beautiful long lashes ( off course me too). I am talking about the new By Terry UV Base Invisible Sunscreen Primer Broad Spectrum SPF50 and By Terry Lash-Expert Twist Brush.
By Terry UV Base Invisible Sunscreen Primer Broad Spectrum SPF50
By Terry UV Base Invisible Sunscreen Primer Broad Spectrum SPF50 is an invisible perfecting primer that provides a high-level of broad-spectrum SPF 50 and helps skin fight against external factors (pollution, UV rays, stress). Enriched with antioxidant vitamin E and protecting UV filters, its fresh, lightweight gel-cream texture gives a non-greasy matte velvet finish for a perfectly even skin. The primer has a translucent matte finish, the texture is gel-like and does not feel like other SPF’s in the market, there is no ashy or white-cast finish. The formula is super light-weight and is suitable for all skin types.
With so many products for skincare and makeup, this is a really nice fusion of skincare and makeup properties into one. It provides sun protection and that too a high level of broad-spectrum, plus it helps give a smooth base for makeup application. It can be used as just the last step if you are not going to apply makeup and if not, it has become my perfect base these days. I am totally in love with the texture, does not feel like sunscreen, it is gel-like and does not give the oily feeling after application. There is a little radiance which is an add-on, makes the skin look healthy and radiant. I did not experience any breakouts while using this base. The makeup did not roll off and stays on pretty well for the full day, I mean lasts longer than usual.
By Terry Lash-Expert Twist Brush
By Terry Lash-Expert Twist Brush with its “2-Step Twist” custom-brush system, this ingenious mascara combines simplicity and expert performance for an instantly professional result. Enriched with premium deep black pigments and natural protective oils (jojoba, olive, and avocado), its extra-workable texture may be stretched out and touched-up to create any look without ever smudging or flaking. The mascara is claimed to be everything you need for volume, length, shape, and curve. This new multi-tasking mascara bends itself to your will to customize each and every lash as you need. It has high-technology telescopic-brush, fitted with a super smart twistable mechanism that allows you to advance or retract the brush head to make up your lashes exactly as needed, uber-dramatically or naturally deeply defined. Made of elastomer fibers with ‘sensor’ pins, the brush catches every single lash for limitless possibilities.
Position-1 (non-twisted) for length
The innovative formula of the mascara is designed to enhance and nurture the lashes. There are nourishing vegetable oils of olive, avocado, and jojoba, sculpting wax of rice, carnauba, candelilla, and restructuring hydrolyzed keratin make it a deeply conditioning formula, which ensures a perfect makeup effect and healthy-looking lashes. The waterproof polymers adhere to lashes with each customized brushstroke, building bespoke volume and length. The premium deep black pigments, offset and intensified with a touch of blue, magnify the rich, dramatic effect. The mascara is ultra-smooth and ultra-buildable, does not dry-out, flake or smudge.
Position-2 (twisted) for volume
I have been really impressed by the innovative design of this mascara, a twist makes the same product do something else, it is a double duty mascara of course. Length and volume are the main keys of this and I have been using this for few days and been trying both the features as well as each feature separately. The effect and finish from both are really great, and I agree with the claims. My lashes look healthy, naturally voluminous and long. The mascara is easily buildable for a more intense or dramatic effect. The mascara does not smudge, flake, or dry out. Even at the end of the day, it looks great and moreover, is really easy to remove with the right eye makeup remover.
I am really impressed and been using these on heavy rotations. Follow me on my Instagram to see the before and after pictures, along with my looks. By Terry UV Base Invisible Sunscreen Primer Broad Spectrum SPF50 and By Terry Lash-Expert Twist Brush are available at Nordstrom, Barney NY, Beautylish, Spacenk, Cult Beauty, NetaPorter.
Spring brings with it so much joy, life, and energy. The same can be related to the fragrances when it comes to the season, spring and summer bring with it the flowers, sweetness, freshness in terms of scents. I have two new launches which I am writing about in this post. Mugler Angel Eau Sucree and Coach Floral have become a new go-to scent for me since last few days. Read below for details on both these new fragrances.
Mugler Angel Eau Sucree
Mugler Angel Eau Sucree was launched as limited edition fragrance in 2014 and due to the love it received, it is now a part of the Mugler permanent collection. The nose behind the fragrance is perfumer Dorothee Piot and the fragrance plays on a profusion of gustatory effects, a combination of rich and varied flavors (crispy, velvety, smooth, melting, tangy, and sweet), and is ultimately enjoyed in a trio of delight. The three delights are described as:
A tangy or Acidulous delight – creamy, juicy red berry sorbet that awakens the senses like a breath of fresh, sweet air.
Gourmand or sugary delight – ethereal and crisp because of the generous and tantalizing caramelized meringue accord
Sensual or Voluptuous delight – refinement of patchouli and softness of vanilla, just for pleasure, like an unexpected sensual surprise
The packaging of the iconic star metamorphosis into an irresistible candy takes on a tender and slightly pearly blue reminiscent of the sugar coating of scrumptious chocolate cake.
Coach Floral is a new feminine floral scent inspired by Coach’s signature tea rose motifès. The fragrance radiates joy and positivity in addition to evokes the lightness that inspires spring and summer. Coach Floral opens with a splash of citrus and a touch of effervescent pink peppercorn with radiant pineapple sorbet. The heart reveals a bouquet of fragrant flowers – Tea Rose, Jasmine Sambac and Gardenia – before an enveloping dry-down to elegant creamy wood, patchouli essence, and musky notes.
The packaging of the fragrance features a tea rose charm on the feminine oval bottle. There is turn-lock shaped spray cap which is a nod to the original closure that first appeared on Coach bags in 1954, while Coach’s horse and carriage – a symbol of brand’s rich history of craftsmanship – is embossed on the glass. The finishing touch is a rose gold-tone hangtag like those seen on every Coach bag since the 1970s. I reviewed the original Coach fragrance here if you are interested to read about it.
A highlighter is a product that is always in, whether it is summer or winter or any season, a little extra glow always cheers you up. Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess 2018 Collection which has the star product called Illuminating Powder Gelée in Heat Wave is a limited edition highlighter released this summer. As per the official description, ‘This seductive all-over bronzer is endless summer. Smooths on as a soft sheen. Builds to a luminous pearl highlight.’
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Illuminating Powder Gelée in Heat Wave is a limited edition product and is part of the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess 2018 Collection. The packaging of the Illuminating powder aka the highlighter is very beautiful, rose with pops of aqua. The product has a beautiful embossing and pan design. The highlighter is bright, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. Estee Lauder powder gel formulations are one of the best and even this one is amazing. The formula is created using a unique Prisma technology which gives such a gorgeous glow. It is a tri-brid of liquid, powder, and gel. The finish is smooth and beautiful, delivering a soft sheen that illuminates the complexion.
If you are a fan of sparkle and shimmer, (who is not? Especially in the summer) this is a really nice option to try. And as this is a limited edition product, you need to check this out before it gets sold out. I can totally pull it off on the beach days or vacation. The formula on this highlighter is smooth to touch, finely milled, and very pigmented. In my opinion, this highlighter is not for daily use or something you can use every day if you are working in a conservative or office environment. If you’re looking for an everyday glow, this is not for you. Heat Wave has a very high shine frosty finish that’s very noticeable on the skin, so if you love intense highlighters, Heat Wave is just right for you. Some highlighters have a tendency to increase the visibility of pores and texture on the skin, I didn’t notice anything like that on my combination skin. It did not emphasize my problem areas.
For me, this will be a perfect addition to the highlighters when I need that extra oomph or hint of summer glow for a vacation or night out. It is buildable up to a true metallic highlight. For an even more intense glow, I wet my brush with a setting spray before applying the product. I think that Heat Wave would be best suited for most of the skin tones. For very light skin tones, it will be more of a bronzer and for light-medium to dark skin tones, it will be perfect as an illuminator. The staying power is really nice, applies and blends in pretty well. There is a fun amount of sparkle and this can also be used as a top up on the eyeshadow, as a highlighter or just as a fun eyeshadow. The packaging makes it even prettier to take along while traveling.
