By Terry has released a couple special limited-edition items to celebrate the 10 Year Anniversary of her Baume de Rose. There is a 10 Year Anniversary Baume de Rose ($60) in a specially designed pot with silver hearts and a 10 Year Anniversary Coffret Duo ($109) that has the special packaging for Baume de Rose and new a Darling Baume gloss tube with crushed pearl shimmers. I ordered the coffret for last month’s Love Yourself Event.
The 10 Year Anniversary Baume de Rose is identical to the regular Baume de Rose in size and formula, the only difference is the outside packaging. For those who haven’t tried this, it goes on the lips clear. It’s a luscious moisturizing lip product that hydrates the lips like no other balm that I’ve tried. It does have a strong rose scent so if you are sensitive to fragrance you may want to smell this in person first. I find the scent fades nicely and it’s a soothing rose.
The Darling Baume is limited to the set and is a sheer pale pink infused with sparkles that flash pink and pearl. The shimmer is on the larger side but the gloss feels very smooth and moisturizing. It adds a hint of sheen and sparkle to the lips.
Comparisons of the 10 Year Anniversary Set to the regular Baume de Rose and Rose Balm Gloss (which I haven’t tested yet):
Overall a lovely duo that comes at a hefty price tag. I do think the Baume de Rose is worth every penny so if you are running low on yours or wanted to try this, the coffret is a nice set that is worth looking into. The By Terry counters I worked with said this sold out in their stores already and they don’t know if they will be getting more stock in. After testing the Darling Baume gloss for a few days I think it’s just ok. It’s a nice swipe and go gloss or perfect for adding a bit of shimmer but not a must-have for the price in my opinion. The good thing is that if you wanted the special packaging you can buy the Baume de Rose separately.
I am relatively new to By Terry. I’ve been discovering the item piece by piece and will write more as I put the items I’ve purchased to the test (I’m incredibly impressed with their foundations so far). A couple snapshots of the By Terry counter in San Francisco at Barneys New York. If you have any favorites I’d love to hear about them.
