I feel I don't need to write an introduction to this beauty . So lets cut to the chase , if you are a red lip connoisseur you need this ! The color sells it self and the formula is quite possibly the best on the market . By Terry is usually marketed to an older and more niche clientele . However , I feel any woman of any age can wear items from her brand and feel like a million dollars .
The Rouge Terribly Lipstick line for instance is highly pigmented and extraordinarily long wearing . I was able to wear 201 Terrific Rouge for 7 hours without any signs of fading ! My lips never felt dry and neither did the lipstick slip into any fine lines around my mouth . Initially 201 has a slight glossy appearance but after an hour it becomes more of a satin . I love matte red lips but usually my lips end up looking wrinkly after a few hours . 201 never dries to a drying matte look , it feels comfortable and looks like a true satin on the lips .
I hope my pictures show how the lipstick pretty much coated my lips with this lush red color . I find 201 Terrific Rouge to be a neutral red leaning slightly pink . There are no obvious warm or cool undertones which makes it universally flattering . When it comes to red lips most people focus on the color and undertones . In my opinion ,what makes a red lip is actually the formula of the lipstick ! There is nothing worse than wearing a bold color that fades, cracks or peels off during the day . So the key is finding a saturated color with a long wearing and comfortable formula .
For me this lipstick is the ultimate pick me up .
I feel so glamorous and pretty ? I know it sounds silly but 201 Terribly Rouge just makes me feel bold with out being over the top , sexy without looking like I am trying too hard and most importantly, classy !
Overall, I say wear this baby to a holiday party and be the centre of attention :) This is my Holy grail red !
