The *BY TERRY Holiday 2018 Gem Glow Collection is here! Ever festive and utilitarian, the Holiday 2018 releases from BY TERRY feature new LE releases and bundled favorites that make gift giving for others (and self!) tantalizing and opulent.
I am happy to be able to share an overview of this launch, along with a peek at the new *Kjaer Weis + Caroline Issa Lipstickand a carefully-curated Cyber Week Shopping Guide because most sales are already in effect!
*BY TERRY Gem Glow Beauty Favorites Set: Featuring a mini Baume de Rose Gloss, mini Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder, mini Terribly Mascara and mini Ombre Blackstar in Bronze Moon, this adorable quartet reflects the very best of BY TERRY in makeup bag-friendly sizes you’ll use daily.
*BY TERRY Gem Glow Trio Compact: A LE release that is well worth the pursuit, this breathtakingly beautiful powder has three rings of radiance…the outer ring adds warmth, the center ring creates a soft pink flush and the center ring is a dazzling pearl highlighter. Apply them separately for precise results and mix them together to perfect the complexion in a single sweep. Get this.
*BY TERRY Gem Glow Brightening CC Serum: This soft rose gold-inspired CC cream (seemingly a blend of shades #2, #3 and #4 in the original formula) imparts skincare benefits and a subtle glow that will compliment a spectrum of skin tones.
*BY TERRY Baume de Rose Lip Care: A cult classic in a diminutive form, this mini Baume de Rose transforms from adorable ornament for the tree or stocking stuffer to the lip formula of your dreams.
*BY TERRY Gem Glow Ombre Blackstar Set: If you haven’t yet tried the Ombre Blackstar formula (which, incidentally, I’ve been writing about since the early days of BP), this is the perfect moment to indulge. The silky, pigmented and extremely (crease-free) long wearing cream shadow blends with ease and looks sensational on eyelids of all ages. This set comes with three best sellers: the divinely neutral Bronze Moon, perfectly effortless Blonde Opal and swoon-worthy mauve Misty Rock. I mixed the three together in the eye look at the end of the post.
*BY TERRY Baume de Rose Set: Consisting of a full sized Baume de Rose Gloss (a nightstand constant for me) and a deluxe mini version of the luxurious Baume de Rose Hand Cream, this is the quintessential gift for rose lovers, balm addicts, hand cream aficionados, tastemakers, those who like nice things…in sum, basically everyone.
// THE FULL LOOK // Ultra smooth skin, bronzy lids and bright red lips to usher in the season ahead.
Tatcha The Silk Canvas: Inspired by the stellar reviews on this skin refining primer (blurred pores and fine lines…yes please!), I recently ordered it and am so glad I did. The gossamer balm texture glides over skin to create the smoothest canvas possible. So good.
*Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation #143(reviewed HERE): This foundation has been in rotation for years; radiant medium coverage with a HD skin-like finish is fortified with skincare benefits and long lasting wear. I like to apply a pea-sized amount with a dampened Beauty Blender for the most natural looking result.
*Givenchy Bronzer #4 (reviewed HERE): I reach for this true brown hue frequently due to its lightweight texture and ability to simultaneously contour and add warmth to the complexion without the slightest trace of texture. It’s especially divine for medium, olive, tan and deep skin tones.
*Koh Gen Do Gloss Film Powder #123: No matter the weather, I use a touch of this powder daily to set my T-zone and touch up after a long day. The formula has a slightly dewy finish (read: zero powder look) that provides medium coverage and a flawless outcome.
*BY TERRY Gem Glow Trio Compact: I swept a mix of the three shades along the high points of my face (upper cheek bones, center of forehead, down the bridge of the nose and at the chin) for a subtle radiance that makes skin look lit-from-within.
*BY TERRY Gem Glow Ombre Blackstar Set: As aforementioned, I used all three shades (Bronze Moon all over the lids and along the lower lash line, Blonde Opal up to the brow bone and a touch of Misty Rock at my crease) for a lush, neutral, multi-dimensional effect that doesn’t budge.
*Clé de Peau Beauté The Lip Serum: I swept a touch of this nourishing lip serum (which has become a daily habit) along my pout as a hydrating primer. The rave reviews are not an exaggeration…I don’t know what I ever did without it.
*Kjaer Weis + Caroline Issa Lipstick in Amour Rouge and Sucre: The latest from green beauty pioneer Kjaer Weis, these two crimson shades are the culmination of a collaboration with magazine publisher and style icon Caroline Issa. 25% of the proceeds of the shades Amour Rouge (a orange-based red also worn at the end of this post) and Sucre (a true just bitten carmine that can be layered for intensity) will be donated to Women for Women International, which helps women in conflict torn countries like Afghanistan and Nigeria. The formula is packed with good-for-you ingredients and the color payoff and lasting power reflect the sublime quality that we’ve come to expect with the resplendent Kjaer Weis line.
Reformation: 30% off EVERYTHING, site-wide. I just placed an order and bought the Cynthia jeans in the San Lucas wash…no holes and a perfect medium blue(size up 2 sizes for best fit as they run small), Maine top in a size Medium, Guss Tee in Matcha and Black in a size Medium and Joplin Tee in Sage size Medium (I like a bit of extra room and flow in my tee shirts).
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Rachel. Extra love to your beautiful daughter.
