Friend Recommends: By Terry Rose de Rose Blush
Friend (well, really cousin) Ashley gives us another fabulous product recommendation. Last time she was raving about a facial cleanser. This time she’s crazy about By Terry Rose de Rose Sheer Liquid Blush, available at several online sites. Let’s hear what she has to say about it.
What is the name of the product and where can you get it?
One of the most amazing blush products I have ever come across is the Rose de Rose sheer liquid blush by the French brand, By Terry. Terry de Gunzburg, inventor of the cult favorite YSL Touche Eclat pen, created this brand. She was raised in a family of scientists, and she also studied art, so she has a well-rounded approach to her brand and products.
What does the product do?
This beautiful blush gives a sheer wash of color on the cheeks (or if you dab it elsewhere, a bit of highlight!) while also imparting a natural glow on the skin. It incorporates skincare elements by plumping up the surface with moisture, leaving it dewy but not greasy. I have combination skin with some oiliness, and this is a perfect product for all skin types as it adds no oil, but keeps the skin hydrated so the application is even and flawless. (Apply using fingers or a foundation brush–a makeup sponge will simply soak up the product without transferring it to the skin.)
How long have you been using it?
I have been using this product for over 3 years now, and even though I have a vast array of other blushes in my kit (I am a professional makeup artist for commercials, runways, events, etc.) I always find myself reaching for this one time after time. There is nothing out there quite like it!
Why do you love it?
I have always felt blush gives a lift to the complexion and features, making you look instantly more youthful. I am always on the quest for a natural looking blush that doesn’t change colors and turn orangey or separate on the skin after a long day, and surprisingly it’s a difficult task. When I was a bit younger, I always went after blushes with shimmer, but now as my skin is changing texture and tone, I find those types aren’t so flattering anymore. With this product, I can still get that youthful glow I adore but it just melts and blends right into the skin so the pores aren’t emphasized. This blush comes in three colors, but they are all flattering on most skin tones, with one being a fresh flush pink, the second a beautiful peachy coral, and the third a bronzey rose.
Why is it different from other products you’ve used?
This is a very high quality product, so yes, it is expensive. But it is very pigmented and you only need a TINY drop for both cheeks! I would say an amount the size of a pin head is plenty, and you can always build the product for a deeper color. This bottle will last you at least one year if you used it every single day. Another really lovely aspect to this is the fact that it actually uses real crushed rose petals for the pigments in it! If you have ever looked at a rose petal in the sunlight, you will see a bit of a prism effect, with many colors reflecting within the base color. This effect is translated into the blush. Also, it smells AMAZING, just like fresh cut roses. This is hands down one of the most luxurious and special products I have ever owned.
