The Aqualip Tint in Dancefloor Flirt is part of By Terry’s new summer collection and at first glance (to be very honest!) I wouldn’t have even picked it up. In the tube it looks like a gloss version of any other reddish-coral lip stain, but this little tube of fluro-jelly is hiding a secret.
When applied to the lips it stains them a beautiful bright pink, almost fuchsia, and is significantly more pigmented than any other stains I’ve tried in the past. It layers up beautifully to create a gorgeous bright lip that is perfect for the summer months and what’s more, it stays put for hours!
It’s so light on the lips, it’s virtually undetectable and doesn’t dry them out one bit. This is all thanks to some snazzy-sounding colour-vector technology and emollient hydrophilic polymers (I for one am not sure what either of the aforementioned are, but do know I like them!)
I’m absolutely loving what seems to be a new era of lip stains hitting the market this year. The YSL Glossy stains, while not really comparable to this, are also a step away from the boring, watery, red lip stains that we are used too and I really think it’s a step in the right direction… It looks like lip stains are in for a comeback!
The By Terry AquaLip will be available this month in SpaceNK. It’s not cheap at £22 (It is By Terry after all!) but is a truly unique product. I can’t wait for this technology to hit the high street!
