There are some items which pop up on the Space NK website that I can't resist, this was one of those items. The By Terry Baume De Rose is a cult classic lip balm which I have been dying to try. The 10th Year Anniversary Coffret contains the balm and gloss in limited edition packaging. And I am a sucker for limited edition packaging.

The Baume De Rose is housed in a frosted glass packaging and is adorned with loving hearts. The balm itself claims to repair and hydrate the lips with such ingredients as shea butter, rose wax and vitamin E, it also contains SPF 15. On the lips this is light and slightly glossy, a very pretty day balm. The smell is pure rose heaven. I find that it hugs the lips nicely and hydrates them well without feeling too heavy. It isn't the best balm I have ever tried but it is a lovely, luxurious day time balm that leaves a luscious pink hue on the lips. 

The gloss was quite a surprise as I was imagining it to be a gloss version of the balm. It is an incredibly shimmery and glittery gloss that is insanely beautiful. The glitter in it is quite chunky so probably isn't best suited for sensitive lips. It has the same pink hue as the balm but the glitter is a mix of pinks, silvers and a speckle of gold. It certainly is a stunner on the lips and is not what one would call subtle. It feels smooth, despite the glitter, and not overly sticky and looks great on top of lipsticks!

The coffret comes in at a purse weeping £58 but if you have some Space NK vouchers/N Dulge points (as I did) I would recommend this little self-indulgent treat. No, you may not need another lip balm in your collection but the excuse of it being rose scented and housed in luxurious packaging wins us over.

Have you tried By Terry Baume de Rose?
