A Cure for Mondays: By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Nude Hydra-Balm Fill & Plump Lipstick Swatches + Review

Above: Nude lovers...By Terry has a shade for you!
There is nothing like nude lip color to soften the blow of Monday.  Consequently, I am excited to share an overview of the *By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Nude Hydra-Balm Fill & Plump Lipstick (available at Beautylish, Space.NK and Barney's NY).  This lovely installment of five shades is part of the stunning By Terry Spring 2015 Collection (extensively reviewed HERE) and if you are a nude lip lover as I am, you are bound to find one (or five) shades that call(s) your name!

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the lip color in action...

Sheer and shiny with a gorgeous gossamer veil of color, the By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Nude Hydra-Balm Fill & Plump Lipstick is a marvelous marriage of hydration and tint.  Although the formula initially applies quite sheer, the color can be built up for intensity in a layer or two.  Never sticky, lips are graced with a moisturizing formula that subtly plumps without tingle or irritation due to the formidable power of hyaluronic acid, which instantly increases hydration in the skin.  

Being ever partial to nude shades, I am endlessly enchanted with this collection.  I intially gravitated towards the peachy pink Innocent Kiss but have since branched out into deeper, more complex territory and, in turn, am featuring the rusty nude Sheer Glow in the beauty look at the end of this post. 

I have loved the By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge lipstick formula since its initial release (reviewed HERE and HERE) and am thrilled for this nude capsue collection...the shades are easy to wear while still being chic and sophisticated.  Truly, they are the type of hues that one finds perennially in her handbag!
