Five years of blogging and you would think I’ve seen my fair share of beauty products yet half a decade on, some things cross my path that give me a buzz. By Terry is one of them.
Today I had a sneak peek at the new launches from By Terry hosted by the great lady herself, Terry de Gunzburg at London’s National Gallery.
From By Terry, the new Rose Infernale Fall Collection offers a Trio Blusher (£72), new tinted shades of the Rose de Baume Nutri-Coleur (£35) and intriguingly, Eye Powder-Kajal (£29) due for release in September.
Meanwhile the Cellularose® Cleanse skincare collection is made up of the Cellularose® Cleansing (£42) Oil, Cellularose Hydra-Toner (£40) and Cellularose® Nutri-Pure cleansing balm (£42).
On top of that there is the arrival of two new delicious fragrances from Terry de Gunzburg. Rose infused scents are my weakness and sure enough, these two new additions to Terry de Gunzburg’s collection turned me knees to jelly.
Rouge Nocturne is the red and Rouge Infernale is the violet and I can’t pick which of the two is my favourite. Rouge Nocturne is perfect for day time wear whereas Rouge Infernale is sensual and a little wicked.
The fragrances arrive in the perfumery hall of Harrods on 1st September exclusively before rolling out to other stores later.
I will have a review coming soon on them as well as more details on the other products. For now feast your eyes on these pretties…
(I’m getting heart palpitations over the I.N.G.U – I Never Give Up Making Colour eye and face palette – such pigmented colours! It’s limited edition and exclusively available to buy at the National Gallery where the Making Colour exhibition is on show.)
BOOM! I’m back as Cleopatra – with a twist! I’m ‘bronde’ for the summer AND for the first time. I’ve never dared to go this light because I believe blonde would look trashy on me.
But I knew I wanted to go lighter so my clever colourist queen Billie at The Chapel in Islington took things one step further and gave me a whole head of colour. The transformation is incredible and I feel and look like a different person. Worth. Every. Penny.
Thank you, Billie and Georgia. You two are insane!
