Beauty Counter Intelligence: A Luxury Lip Balm worth Beaucoup Bucks

By Terry’s Baume de Rose Nutri-Couleur had us at hydration

Totally hydrating and offering a sheer wash of color, By Terry’s Baume de Rose Nutri-Couleur ($56) in Toffee Cream is an ingenious little tub you’ll want to keep in your car or bag. It’s perfect for getting that natural (but not) look on the days when you don’t want to take the time to prime, line, and required with your stash of usual lip products. The just-kissed flush of honeyed pink works as a soft tint and is easy to slick on without a mirror. Made with restructuring ceramides, rose flower essential wax, and shea butter, the balm works damn well to give you a dose of moisture Chapstick could never dole out.
