By Terry Rouge Terribly Age-Defense Lipstick #100 Terribly Nude Review & Swatches

 Purchased by me
According to By Terry, Rouge Terribly Lipsticks have the following attributes:
  • Age Defense Lipsticks
  • Nutri-Replenishing High Color
  • Hydra-Volumizer
  • Lumilip® Technology
The first volume & firmness lipstick enriched with the BY TERRY exclusive and anti-aging Lumilip® Technology to rejuvenate and embellish every smile with silky colors. An extra-comfort and « push-up » lip elixir, wrapped in its satin bag for a beauty touch-up at any time.
 A LUMILIP ® Technology, exclusive to By Terry:
  • For A “Push-Up” Effect : Kiss Me Quick Extract
  • For A Hydra-lift Effect: Hyaluronic Filling Spheres
  • For A Tensor – Firming Effect : Ceramids
A volumising and firming lipstick enriched with the By Terry exclusive anti-ageing Lumilip Technology to rejuvenate and embellish lips. An extra-comforting and plumping lip elixir which combines rich colours and active ingredients with an anti-ageing formula that works to prevent thinning of the lips. Filled with ultra pure high colour pigments, the texture offers complete and extra-smoothing colour. Extra-fine and silky-smoothing, it glides onto the lips and reshapes the contours without heaviness, plumping them without drying. Delicately perfumed and filled with active ingredients, it pampers the lips and repairs them in depth. Suitable for all lip types.
Everything about the Rouge Terribly Lipstick formula is ultra-luxe from the sleek silver metal lipstick tube embellished with the By Terry logo to the magnetic closure. The attention to detail continues to the laser cut Terribly logo donned by the lipstick itself. The lipstick is quintessentially By Terry from the signature rose scent to the remarkably creamy and luxurious application.
It is quite moisturizing with a nice amount of slip and cushion, and it feels lovely on the lips. The coverage is buildable, but can easily be or sheered out. I generally get about 3 hours of wear-time from this lipstick, but imagine that the more pigmented shades would provide longer wear.
The color is the pinky nude shade that I have been looking for since I was a teenager! I used to have an amazing lip crayon in a color that very closely approximates this shade, therefore my excitement is in part informed my the conclusion of a very long search.

Overall assessment: This is the perfect pinky nude My Lips But Better shade for me! The formula is fantastic, but those with an aversion to fragrant lip products will likely be displeased with this aspect of the lipstick (though the scent does fade). The price is quite high, therefore I can't say that you really need to add this to your stash. If, however, you have a deep love of all things By Terry (and don't mind spending $50.00 on a single lipstick), and you are looking for the perfect pinky nude lipstick- then I would say that this lovely lipstick is well worth your consideration.

  1. ooh I don't have that one as thought it would just be a straight up beige, but you have now changed my mind, thanks for the great review as always xx

    1. Hi Replica, I thought that it might as well, but it really reads pinky beige on me-- I am really really happy with it!!! I'm glad that you found the review useful! xoxox

  2. Hi Helen,
    Your swatches are veeeery enticing. This shade looks divine! Always on the search for the perfect pinky nude- though that GA lip duo you sold me on not long ago comes pretty close... but I MUST resist! I MUST! Gotta save my pennies for Burberry Autumn! Lol
    Thanks for the great swatches ;)
    xoxo Naomi

    1. Hi Naomi!!

      I am definitely really loving this shade! No doubt there is a strong sentimental attachment to the shade because I have been searching for it since I was a teenager! Oh yeah, that GA duo remains one of my very favorites!!! I'm so glad that you are still enjoying them! I agree about saving our pennies for the Burberry Autumn Collection! I'm so glad that you found these swatches helpful!!
