We’re back with Rouge Terrybly Part 2: the PEENKS!
The Rouge Terrybly lowdown/collective review can be found here. Today the spotlight is on shades Torrid Rose, Pink Party and Cherry Cherry.
Rouge Terrybly in Torrid Rose #303
I frequently associate rose shades with muted, brown mixes but that’s where torrid comes in: Torrid Rose can be described as a medium, brightened pink with a rosy hue. Definitely on the cooler spectrum, it bears some resemblance to Cherry Cherry in swatches but is discernibly lighter and less purple. Torrid Rose strikes a good medium; bright enough that it adds interest but light and muted enough that it can be worn with a stronger eye without fear of OTT, multi-focal point conflict.
Torrid Rose lives up to Rouge Terrybly reputation: ultra pigmented, ultra creamy, stains and wears evenly, not a lipline or flake in sight.
I decided to pair Torrid Rose with the Tom Ford Orchid Haze Eyeshadow Quad, which I wholeheartedly intended on reviewing until I discovered… I didn’t have much to say. The formula of the eyeshadows is gorgeous, creamy and pigmented but the colour story has me on the fence – slightly muddy? slightly blah? lacking wow-factor? I DON’T KNOW, I’ve been sitting on this fence for months and my bum hurts.
By Terry Rouge Terrybly – Torrid Rose #303 // A brightened yet harmonious choice with this eye, if I may say so myself
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz – Medium Ash // Used in all three looks because I’m lazy and can use this with my eyes closed
Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad – Orchid Haze // Makes my brain and bum hurt
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow – Corrupt // Used with a damp brush for foolproof winged liner
Ardell Lashes – #301 // Subtle half sets and the easiest lashes ever because it was a lazy day OKAY
NYX Blush – Taupe // A good contour shade for cooler looks. On closer inspection, not entirely matte
Rouge Terrybly in Pink Party #301
If Pink Party were truly a party, it would be one hell of a night: Patron, feathers, fancy hats. It is NEON PEENK, like NARS Schiap or Candy Yum-Yum status, but much classier because By Terry doesn’t concern herself with such frivolities *flicks hair*
But really. You know how I feel about neon lipsticks; I saw Pink Party on the counter and promptly lost my sh*t.
Ahem. Pink Party is a perfectly composed, true neon pink – it’s blue based but not muddled with any purple, which you can distinguish in the swatches (against the purpled Cherry Cherry). There must be some white in the base to achieve this level of vibrancy but thankfully: no dreaded white lines, no settling into vertical liplines and no emphasis on texture.
Pink Party makes my lips look as though they are in great condition, which is a major
minor miracle – fantastic longevity with no compromise on lip comfort. If you’re looking for a luxe neon lipstick, this is the Rolls Royce.
My camera and your screens aren’t capturing the full vibrancy. As I know no restraint or moderation, I paired the cool Pink Party with a vibrant copper-orange eye for some tonal clash (shamelessly inspired by Vogue-esque shoots) and kept it modern with blown out placements and clean-looking skin.
By Terry Rouge Terrybly – Pink Party #301 // I’m salivating
MAC Eyeshadow – Coppering // On lid and lower lashline. Vibrant, orange-copper that extracts any green in my eyes
Guerlain Four Seasons Bronzer – Ebony // A mixture of shades (mostly coral) through the crease for a lineless, blown out placement
Illamasqua Eye Pencil – Vow // A nude pencil for the lower waterline to detach the orange from the whites of my eyes
Liz Martins Select – Individual Lashes // Includes a variety of weights. My pick for ultra feathery, bushy lashes. Randomly placed
Shiseido – High Beam White WT905 // Need to review this. Dusted on the cheekbones and… all over ma face. Perfectly neutral white ensures that the tonal-clash is confined to the eyes and the lips
Rouge Terrybly in Cherry Cherry #304
The pink with most depth, Cherry Cherry is best described as a deep fuschia with a strong purple lean. This one seems to have more slip than the rest of the Rouge Terrybly line so if you constantly battle with bleeding out of the lipline, be wary. Otherwise, it’s very comfortable on the lips, wears evenly and the pigment is strong – all my swatches are a single swipe.
I always struggle to pair Cherry Cherry, I prefer it with an otherwise understated face but I wanted to keep things fresh so I opted for SUQQU Sumiredama Quad. In order to bring out the blue duochrome, I layered the shadows over a blue base AND BAM, accidental reacquaintance with my arch nemesis: blue eyeshadow. More blue than I anticipated. Blue… we meet again…
I must admit, deep blues make brown eyes glow, but I still wasn’t happy about it.
By Terry Rouge Terrybly – Cherry Cherry #304 // Cool undertones mirrored on the eyes and lips
Makeup Forever Aqua Cream – Shade 20 // I dislike this formula. Dry and patchy when used as an eyeshadow base
SUQQU Eyeshadow Quad – Sumiredama // Better without the blue base, don’t mess with perfection
MAC Eyeshadow – Swiss Chocolate // Furiously blended through the crease to neutralise the blue
Makeup Geek Gel Liner – Electric // In the lower waterline. If you recall, I disliked this for winged eyeliner and my dislike extends to waterline use. Wears like iron but made my eyes water like a mofo
Geisha Ink – Liquid Liner in Black // Still the best liquid liner on the market, in my opinion
House of Lashes – Sweet Romance // We got a bold eye and a bold lip… why not go all the way?!
So that’s six out of the ten Rouge Terrybly done! Are you enjoying this? I’m enjoying this. Tune in for lighter, nude shades in the next post.
