Run - Don't Walk - to Beautylish for These Two LE Products!

by terry gold jewel lip kiss






Today, I am over the moon to share to two limited edition products, currently available at Beautylish.  One encompasses unmitigated opulence for the lips while the other is pure luxury in the form of brushes.  Together, they comprise the ultimate in beauty splurges, both for one's self or as an unforgettable gift for a beauty loving friend or family member.


Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the products in action as well as the Bottom Line...

Ever since witnessing a fleeting preview of the limited-edition *By Terry Gold Jewel Lip Kiss earlier this fall, I earnestly hoped that we'd be reunited.  Thankfully, this radiant gem is now mine!  The golden case is emblazoned with an iconic purple pattern that is quintessentially representative of the classic By Terry aesthetic, for purple is one of Terry de Gunzburg's favorite colors.  The Holiday 2015 palette consists of ten shades of lip color; the top row features five matte reds of varying undertones and the bottom row possesses five coordinating lip glosses for endless combinations.  

In terms of formula, the mattes are ultra pigmented and have a velvety texture that glides over lips without too much "slip."  They feel hydrating and comfortable for hours and perform magnificently without feathering or settling into fine lines.  

The glosses offer a diverse range of shades and opacity; from the palest beige to the richest red, they seamlessly pair with the matte options, inviting the wearer to exercise immense creativity when customizing their lip mix.  They are not sticky, although they stay in place and heighten the longevity of the lip color overall.

Finally, the lip brush should not go without mention; dual ended and easy to handle, the bristles are firm yet flexible and allow for a precise application while on the go. 

In sum, this palette is simply exquisite...the reds are classic and wearable and the glosses add a fresh dimension for seemingly infinite options.  This is a must have in every By Terry devotee's and lip color lover's collection!

Since its debut last month, the limited-edition Wayne Goss Anniversary Set -- exclusive to Beautylish -- has already sold out once (see my Goss Brow Kit review HERE).  Stock was recently replenished but, in light of initial customer demand, I imagine that this utilitarian collection will not be available for much longer!

Featuring eight brushes for every need imaginable, the super soft bristles and sleek, Japanese craftsmanship guarantee that you will be reaching for these stylish tools time and again.   


Official details, courtesy of Beautylish:

To commemorate the second anniversary of its launch on Beautylish, Wayne Goss is reissuing the best-selling Brush set that started it all. Everything you love about The Collection, reimagined in a new limited edition release.

The Anniversary Set includes an updated release of the popular Brush 01 (limited edition) and introduces the new Brush 05 which will become a permanent addition to The Collection.

Each Brush has been meticulously handcrafted by traditional artisans in Kumano, Japan with jewel tone name and number lasering on the handles unique to the Anniversary Set.

Cruelty-free natural bristles are selected for luxurious softness and then bundled uncut into a durable brass ferrule. 

There are eight brushes in the Anniversary Set:

Brush 1: A flat buffing and blending brush, perfect for applying foundation
Brush 2: An oval-shaped face brush that works well to blend blush and bronzer
Brush 3: A larger eye shadow brush with longer bristles for placing product across the entire eyelid.  This also could be used to apply illuminator/highlighter along the cheekbones and bridge of the nose.
Brush 4: An eye shadow brush (only slightly smaller than Brush 3) for additional blending, especially at the crease.
Brush 5: A tiny, pointed brush with stiff yet soft bristles, excellent for applying cream eyeliner at the upper and lower lash lines.
Brush 6: A flat eye shadow brush with a classic shape for all over application.
Brush 7: A short-bristled half domed brush to work in the crease and lash lines.
Brush 8: A tiny, angled brush for precise application of brow powders and creams.

Bottom Line:   As aforementioned, the By Terry Gold Jewel Lip Kiss and Wayne Goss Anniversary Set are brilliant options for the beauty-minded.  Due to their versatility and exceptional performance, coupled with the impending holidays, I suspect that the limited quantities of both will be depleted in the coming weeks.  In turn, act swiftly should either catch your eye!

Good things ahead including a skincare update, a host of new product procurements and Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale features; I am also in the midst of responding to your comments and emails...thanks for your patience!

  2. I recently purchased the Wayne Goss Anniversary brush collection. I am over the moon with the quality, beauty and softness of these brushes. Every one is perfection. The new makeup brush is a delight to use. I am able to pick up exactly what I want and then effortlessly apply my foundation smoothly and seamlessly. They are certainly wort the price.
