By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge Swatches

By Terry has just released the Sheer Inspiration collection for Spring 2013 over here.

The new Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge is described as a melt-in lipstick balm that moisturizes, fills in wrinkles and fine lines, boosts volume, smoothes and protects the lips in a “plumping glossy” colored veil. It contains hyaluronic acid filling spheres to re-plump and fill in lines, “Crystal-Color” micro-pigments for pure and luminous color, and UV filters for sun protection.

Available in 10 shades, these come with a pretty hefty price tag of €29 for 3g. Nevertheless, half of the shades were already out at stock at the Sephora (France) store that I went to.

These have a lovely glossy texture that feel very comfortable and hydrating. There is no shimmer or glitter. Shades #1 to #4, and #9 are ultra-sheer though, and give just the barest hint of color. The other shades, like #6 Party Girl, #7 Bang Bang, #8 Hot Spot and #10 Berry Boom are much more well-pigmented.

At this price point, I would choose the more intense shades, as any ordinary lip balm would given you pretty much the same effect as the super sheer shades. Of the ten, I was drawn to #6 Party Girl, a pretty rosy pink, and #8 Hot Spot, a juicy cheerful coral.

If you like YSL Rouge Volupte Shine, chances are you will like Sheer Rouge as well. Another similar product is Tom Ford Lip Color Shine (US$48, 10 shades) which has been reviewed on Best Things In Beauty.

Great review, I am just about to review mine. I bought dragon fly and its gorgeous. I just reviewed Tom Ford lipshines and these are more moisturizing but love both!

These lipsticks sound VERY promising, especially because I adore products with hyaluronic acid. Thanks for the introduction!
