Iconic make-up artist Francois Nars once said that make-up is something you have to hold in your hand to fall in love with. I think many of you will agree with that, and if I were to ever design the ultimate lipstick, it would look something like the new By Terry Rouge Expert Click Sticks, £24.50.
Yes, the clever Terry de Gunzberg has nailed it again. The texture is a dream, the colour pay off awesome, and the formulation is creamy and silky so lips never feel overly parched. And perhaps most importantly – they last.
The press blurb states it is a 3 in 1 hybrid lipstick: ‘rich like a balm, precise like a pencil and intense like a premium pigment.’ It gives lips a velvety finish so make sure your lips are well hydrated and free of flakes before you apply.
There are 25 shades in the range, spanning nude to intense. My favourite so far is 2 Bloom Nude, a pinky nude that is great for blondes. Swatched above from top to bottom is 2 Bloom Nude/ 22 Play Plum/ 3 Bare Me/ 16 Rouge Initiation.
