In Love Terrybly with By Terry Spring 2012 Passion Pastel Bellini Peach and Perfect Nude Swatches and Review

By Terry is such a superb brand when it comes to formula perfection. Whether it is a bottle of nail polish with treatment benefit or a lip plumping liner pencil that protects your lips, By Terry has it all. For Spring 2012, Terry takes us to a feminine world filled with pastel colors that will make your eyes go WOW. Today I am featuring two items from the line.

Let’s start with the Nail Laque Terrybly High Shine Smoothing Lacquer 302 Bellini Peach.

Each Nail Laque Terrybly contains Okoume resin plant extract. In simpler terms it is a strengthener for the nails or rather a “Keratin-restructuring” agent. Okoume resin is found in African forest and is rich in terpenoids and essential oils. This wonderful ingredient works in two ways. One, it reinforces the hardness of the nails and two, it film-forms while filling the nail surface.

By Terry’s bottle design utilizes crystal-like glass for housing the nail polish with an emblazoned By Terry logo on a gold cap. It has a generous volume of 10ml that lasts for 18 months.

If you have never seen how the applicator looks inside a bottle of By Terry nail polish, here it is. The applicator is short for easy control and the brush bristles are dense yet they fan out nicely on the nail. 3 strokes is all it takes for painting the entire nail.

What really interesting about Bellini Peach is that the color seems really complex. Being mainly a soft peach shade, it does change colors depending on the angle and lighting. Here are a few shots of the nail polish with direct sunlight. You can see it being a cool blue tone or a pink tone along with multi-colored micro shimmers.

Now I have to show this gorgeous polish on my nails. The first two photos were taken indoor. I have applied two coats of polish on each nail. For such a soft shade, you would naturally assume it being sheer. Not quite, Bellini Peach is rich in pigmentation instead. You could almost get away with one coat but two coats will give the nails even more striking color. Whether you prefer a sheerer finish or a fully opaque finish, brush marks will not appear on your nails. The formula is so creamy and the consistency is just right. Applying this bottle of nail polish is really a pleasure.

Just like how the color slightly changes in the bottle, on the nails the color also looks complex and full of dimensions. The micro sized shimmers brings even more shine to the already glossy finish.

In direct sunlight, you can see the peach color with a bit of a cool blue tone showing through.

Next, we have Perfect Lip Liner Plumping Curve & Contour Definer in 01 Perfect Nude. The lip liner comes easy to use built with high precision. Everything you need for supple, featherproof lips is inside the box.

Right out of the box is the lip liner and a sharpener. The liner pencil is adorned with By Terry signature mesh log and a lightweight metallic cap.

Below is some detailed photos depicting the lip liners design. The magic hidden inside the lip liner is the Jojoba oil and natural antioxidant agents. They fill the lip lines while protecting the lips from oxidative stress. It also brings youthfulness to the lips with incredible plumping effect.

The lip liner comes with a sharpener as well which on the outside looks like an everyday one but secretly it has something worth mentioning. If you flip the sharpener around, you might notice there is a pick! The pick can be used to clean and get those hard to reach pencil shavings out of the sharpener. It keeps things clean. The blade is also nice and sharp to keep your pencil always ready to draw.

By now if you see the photo below you might notice that the pencil is quite perfectly made / designed. The color is practically a nude color for the lips, something that goes well with natural lip colors.

The pencil proves to be easy to use with its buttery gliding application. It not only provides a pigmented color, it also provides a maximum hold. The lip liner is a creamy yet firm melt away texture. Once applied it brings a lot more definition to the lips, at the same time giving them a plump factor. The lips essentially look a lot fuller.

Key thing is to make sure that you wait 2 minutes for the lip liner to dry permanently for a long lasting hold.

So the lip liner is long lasting and waterproof. I had to give it a water stress testing and the result is shown below. You be the verdict. By the way, the area was rubbed and scrubbed using fingertips.

By Terry never stops to amaze us with her magnificent products. The nail polish sports a fashion forward ultra glossy color along with repairing agents inside the bottle. But best of all it looks flawless and it lasts. I have been wearing it for 3 days and the color looks just as fresh. The lip liner protects the lips while delivering bold perfectly defined contour. The waterproof formula also makes it long lasting and prevents lipstick from feathering. The build on both products are really high quality and they wear comfortably on the nails and the lips. They’re truly remarkable and luxurious.
