By Terry - How much is too much?





BY TERRY


By Terry is the range that produces the lip product Baume de Rose,  loved by many (including the lemming creator Laura herself ;P) and the Rose de Rose sheer blush which I love and realise as I type this that I have never actually mentioned on the blog...oops!  


The prices of By Terry make it a massive treat for me and so far the Rose de Rose is all that I have from the range. So imagine my surprise when whizzing around the Internet i stumble across a press release advising that By Terry is launching Terrybly, a new collection of make-up available from early November (well some things are actually available now on Space NK Website). Apparently 
Terrybly is not simply a make up; it helps skin renew and protect itself. 


Among the products in the new range are Teint Terrybly Flawless Compact Foundation which contains a lot of poncey sounding ingredients (ultra-push-up Densiliss technology or soft-touch microprisms anyone)? and Rouge Terrybly lipstick which contains anti-ageing technology and some kind of microspheres that plump up on contact oh and Ceramides to boost cellular cohesion. 


The new Terrybly By Terry range is available from Space.NK in November priced between £30.00 and £50.00.


Erm...I'm sorry did you say BETWEEN £30 and £50?  So the mascara is at least £30? And the lipstick likewise?  Yikes! I can understand that amount for a fabulous foundation, an eyeshadow palette or something like that but for 1 mascara is mad.  Plus it turns out the foundation actually costs £60 here so it's even more expensive.

I'm all for paying for good quality, but just because the product says it has anti ageing qualities? Surely your money would be better spend on some anti ageing skincare instead?

What is your opinion?
