But back to this post. I’m always been been drawn to red lipsticks but rarely wear them. Hence I decided to swatch my reds. Except I forgot my Shu Uemura lipsticks which are in another box. So here are swatches of the other reds I have.

By Terry Blush Veloute Velvet Cream Blush in #1 Apple Glow

*waves hi* It’s been a while since I posted a review 🙂

Today I bring the cream blush from By Terry. As some of you may know, blushes are my weakness. I was in a splurging mood and ended with it.

Once I got this, I felt I might have something similar, I pulled out a few of my cream blushes to compare. I suspect Bobbi Brown blushed rose pot rouge might be similar but it is hiding from me. 😦

Thoughts:

This is tiny! It’s $43 for 0.1 oz/ 3g so it’s definitely on the pricer side. It glides on well and goes sheer once you blend it out.  It’s buildable so for the ladies who are afraid of clowny cheeks, a blush like this would work well. It’s a natural looking flush on my skin 🙂

Lasting power on me is moderate.

Is it worth the money? Not to me. I personally prefer blushes that are more pigmented.

You can buy this at Barneys or at beautybar.com I personally prefer beautybar as it’s free 1-2 day shipping. 🙂 Plus you can use these codes for additional % off!
