VIP Expert Bonjour Paris Palette
This holiday By Terry has launched the eyeshadow palette of my dreams with their VIP Expert Bonjour Paris Palette ($56). It has all the tones I love with a mix of bronze, gold, pink, chocolate and warm coppers. The palette is mostly shimmery with a few satin shades. Colors are blendable with really good pigment and are easy to blend. They have a nice velvety feel that adheres well to the skin. I absolutely love it.

Jewel Fantasy Holiday Sets
There are a number of luxury beauty sets out this year with her best sellers packaged in giftable format. The Jewel Fantasy Tree Deco Baume de Rose ($19, 2.3 g) has a mini Baume de Rose in her tube format. The Full Size is 100% worth the splurge even though it’s quite pricey but if you’re unsure about committing to it, the mini is a nice way to try it out first.
Jewel Fantasy Baume de Rose Duo Set ($39, 75 g for hand cream, 2.3 g for mini balm) is a pretty good deal considering the hand cream alone is $50. Both are scented in By Terry’s classic rose scent.
Jewel Fantasy Ombre Blackstar Trio ($68) has three of her best-selling shimmery cream shadow sticks. These have crushed Tahitian Pearls for a multi-dimensional sheen. The colors are beautiful and adhere to the lids once they set, so once they dry, they are pretty much budge-proof. Frozen Quartz is a shimmery pale pink, Misty Rock is a gorgeous plum purple with silver shimmer, Bronze Moon is a shimmering taupe bronze.
Swatches of the 3 shadows below along with the color items from the Advent Calendar:
Jewel Fantasy CC Serum Set ($91) comes with a full size + mini CC Serum in Sunny Flash. Their CC Serums are multi-tasking illuminators. I can use Sunny Flash as a liquid bronze illuminator, I can mix it in with foundation or moisturizer, it adds radiance to the skin in a super natural way with skincare mixed in. The full size is $91 individually (available in 4 colors) so with this set you get an extra mini added in.
I’ve saved the best for last and I’m thrilled to share a look at the Jewel Fantasy Advent Calendar ($205). This is the ultimate luxury gift and based on what I’ve seen this year, it’s one of the best ones out there. It’s stocked with 14 makeup items, 10 skincare essentials and a few beauty tools. It has a mix of full size items and the minis are large enough to get a good sampling of the product.
Inside you have Full Sizes of the Baume de Rose Lip Care Stick, UV Base (one of my favorite sunscreens), Baume de Rose Hand Cream, Lash Expert Mascara, Lip Expert Matte in 6 Chili Fig, Lip Expert Matte in 8 Red Shot, Lip Expert Shine in 3 Rosy Kiss, Crayon Khol Terrybly in Brown Stellar, Ombre Blackstar in Black Pearl. (The 9 full size items alone retail individually for $343.)
Minis include Travel Sizes of the Baume de Rose Bi-Phase Makeup Remover, Baume de Rose Micellar Water, Brightening CC Serum, Ombre Blackstar in Bronze Moon, Mascara Terrybly, Hylauronic Hydra-Primer, Tea to Tan, Hydra-Pressed Powder, Hydra Powder, Baume de Rose Glowing Mask, Global Face Cream, Mini Kabuki Brush, Double Ended Eye Brush, Beauty Sponge and small flat Cheek Brush.
Wearing the three Lip Expert Colors in the Advent Calendar: Lip Expert Shine in Rosy Kiss, Lip Expert Matte in 8 Red Shot and 6 Chili Fig
Overall love the look of this year’s holiday offerings! There are some really great items for the luxury beauty lover. The Eye Shadow Palette is a winner for me. If you haven’t tried much from her line I think the Advent Calendar is an excellent way to try a wide range of makeup and skincare. Available online at ByTerry.com.
The Sephora Holiday Savings Event starts tomorrow for Rouge! I’ll have a recommendations post up later today and another one tomorrow!
