A Clean, French-Inspired Look Featuring: By Terry Baume de Rose Rosy Babe (+ Swatches Galore)!

I've had the pleasure of using the new By Terry Baume de Rose Nutri-Couleur in #01 Rosy Babe for the last couple of weeks.  My love of the original formula has been professed time and again and I had high hopes for this flushed version.  I am pleased to confirm that it is as marvelous as I expected it to be...insanely moisturizing, long lasting and, now, infused with sheer, ultra-flattering color, this is luxury tinted lip balm at its absolute best!

Kindly scroll on for more Baume de Rose Nutri-Couleur details and swatches as well as a "clean, French-inspired beauty look" featuring a pared-down selection of products AND the Bottom Line...

Official details, courtesy of Space NK:

The much-loved lip balm has now been given the Rose Infernale full-colour treatment. This eye-popping palette ranges from chic and cheerful to innocent hushed hues and whimsical high-drama.
The ever-luxurious formula pampers and soothes with softening rose flower essential wax, lipo-regenerating shea butter, free radical fighting vitamin E, restructuring ceramides, hydrating and smoothing filling spheres. Lips will lap up this deep-down long-lasting cure.

The newly-released Baume de Rose Nutri-Couleur boasts three shades: 
  • #1 Rosy Babe...a soft, baby pink
  • #2 Mandarina Pulp...a bright coral orange
  • #3 Cherry Bomb...a gorgeous red-meets-fuchsia 
Since the three shades are sheer, the colors (though they may appear quite bright in the pot) are entirely wearable and compliment the natural lip tone.  All forms of shimmer are delightfully absent from the formula, enabling a lovely, natural finish that is drenched with pure shine.

Recently, one of my readers requested a "traditional no makeup French look" involving light base, bronzed skin, a touch of mascara and a lip balm...I decided that, in light of my focus on the By Terry Baume de Rose in Rosy Babe, this post was the perfect time to experiment with this aesthetic.  

Scroll on for the product breakdown and look...

Above: Loving my experience thus far with this rich, ultra-natural, highly-effective formula!
The Only Products Used:
  • Dr. Macrene Skin Results 37 Extreme Actives Anti-Aging Cream: I have been experimenting with this skincare for the past few days and am boundlessly intrigued by the whipped texture and "one product serves all purposes" philosophy.  I feel like it's made my skin smoother and brighter and very balanced feeling; I will continue to test it and weigh back in after a few weeks!
  • Le Metier de Beaute Peau Vierge #2 as a primer: My daily non-negotiable.  May this never be discontinued.
  • Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation in #5 Natural (buffed on with a damp Beauty Blender): Still loving this for warm days due to its flawless coverage and extreme lasting power. 
  • Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Killer Cheekbones Bronze + Glow (as a contour, bronzer + highlighter): Reviewed HERE, this is a staple in the sculpting category...so worth the investment. Available at Nordstrom, Net-A-Porter and Selfridges.
  • Surratt Beauty Artistique Blushes in Duchesse, Parfait and Se Pomponner in the Large Compact (lightly swirled together and applied to apples of the cheeks): New to my Surratt Beauty collection, I am adoring this trio of blushes (also swatched HERE) of varying degrees of peach and pink intensity.  Worn separately or together, the shades and finish are exquisite.  
  • Surratt Beauty Expressioniste Brow Pencil in Brunette: When I desire a lush, more defined brow than my trusty By Terry Eyebrow Mascara creates, this delicate, ash brown retractable pencil is the unequivocal answer.  It fills brows beautifully (while still looking wholly natural) and stays in place until removed.  Yet another winner from the Surratt Beauty line! 
  • Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascara: Still in the testing phase with this formula, but initial impressions confirm that the mascara is extremely black (yes!) and builds volume and length adeptly.  No smudging or flaking, even after over 7 hours of wear.  Full review soon.  Available at Selfridges and in Net-a-Porter's Golden Goddess and Bigger Brighter Eyes sets.
  • By Terry Baume de Rose Nutri-Couleur Rosy Babe #1 alone on the lips: This subtle baby pink has just enough color to look like something on the lips; couple this confectionary shade with the luxurious performance of Baume de Rose and it's already inherent appeal is doubled.  Magnifique! Available at Space NK, Barney's NY and B-Glowing.

Bottom Line: I am so glad I decided to pick up the By Terry Baume de Rose Nutri-Couleur in Rosy Babe (available at Space NKBarney's NY and B-Glowing); the delicate pink is pure delight to wear and the rich, hydrating formula performs just as well as the original clear version (which I adore with equal vehemence).  This formula is an excellent choice for those seeking a moisturizing lip treatment with an ultra-flattering, lightly-flushed color tint that is both subtle and sophsiticated.  I hope you enjoyed this review and the subsequent "French-inspired look." I had a ball experimenting with an ultra-pared down approach ; )

Have a beautiful Monday...good things ahead on BP, including another foundation review, a new fragrance profile and the draw for the Rouge Bunny Rouge Raw Garden in Chronos Palette Giveaway!

  1. What a wonderful look for you! I think this paired down look is super lovely. I've heard raves about the Surratt brow pencils and must give it a try. Have a great day :)

  2. You look really pretty! I absolutely love your reviews and I too am a foundation junkie. I noticed the Peau Vierge comes only in the tube for shades 2 and 3 and is $175. Shade 1 comes in the silver bottle and is $125. Is there a difference in the amount of product? I'm dying to try this because of your passion for this product. But I'd like to know which color to get- these are not available in my area for swatches. Also, are the above products I mentioned the same product? Please help!

    1. Hi Amanda,

      Thank you so much. With regards to the Peau Vierge, the $175 tube (which comes in shades 2 and 3) is 2 ounces and the $125 bottle (which currently only comes in shade 1) is 1 ounce. Unless you are really fair (at which point, shade 1 is perfect), shade 2 tends to be the best match for most in the light-medium skintone range. It is such an incredible daily use product and well worth the investment! Let me know if you have other questions about this ; )

  3. Hi BP (again). I would love to know which foundations are your holy grail top 3. And your favorite eye creams. I am a beauty obsessed fanatic! I also love how your skin always looks so glowing and lovely. Do you get peels, laser, etc professionally? I'd love to do whatever you're doing.

    1. Hello again ; )

      Since I get to try so many amazing products, that is a tough question indeed; you've inspired me to prepare some blog posts on those topics! Thanks for your kind words about my skin...I don't do anything in terms of peels or dermatology appointments, however, I do use my Quasar MD home laser (reviewed on the blog), take vitamin supplements and try to keep my face completely out of the sun. I also have been experimenting with the NuFace Mini (also mentioned on the blog!). Overall, a low-maintenance approach!

  4. Hi BP :) Very pretty. I see that there is actually a total of 6 shades of the By Terry balm, if you ever have a chance, could you kindly do some swatch photos of the other three shades? I'm particularly interested in the toffee cream shade. I really appreciate your swatches. Thank you for all your photos. It has helped me tremendously with all my recent Surratt purchases as I do not live near a Barneys. Everything I have selected so far from Surratt I have loved & have not been disappointed with anything, which is a rarity for me when I have to order without seeing in person for myself. Thank you so much! Have a blessed day!

    1. Hello Maria,

      Thanks! I will see if I can swatch the other three soon...they weren't at Space NK when I was there but I will give it a go the next time I am at Barney's NY.

      Thank you for the kind words about my photos...it is definitely encouraging to hear, especially in light of the fact that taking my own pictures takes forever. Glad to know it is appreciated ; )

      So glad you are loving your Surratt products...they are so wonderful and I, too, haven't been disappointed with a single one!

      xoxo, have a blessed day as well and keep in touch,

  5. Lovely as always BP!
    Do you know if LMdB is discontinuing the complex? I've been searching all over for shade 3 and can't find it anywhere.

  6. BP, I knew it! Just naturally beautiful. What I love the most about your posts though is how well written they are. I love that you are the embodiment of brilliant and pretty. Learning about makeup and skin care from someone that appreciates her intellect as well is really inspiring.
