We received three little treats from b-glowing on OpenSky.com. In case you don’t already know, OpenSky is an online retailer that allows entities to curate their “best of the best” for easy finding and shopping. b-glowing is one of the retailers that has a store on OpenSky, which shows a delightful array of high-end products that can make you b-glow, including is amazing Anna Sui blush (these colors remind me of the Guerlain Noir G palette), ways to keep hydrated like this bkr Summer Color glass bottle, and this b-glowing OpenSky Curated Gift Box “All that Shimmers.” Pretty, pretty, pretty!
The items sent to Cafe Makeup includes the By Terry Baume de Rose ($60), a multi-tasking moisturizing and healing product that works beautifully on lips and cuticles on the fingers. This is truly one of the finest lip balms on the market, and it softened both my lips and cuticles to youthful, healthy softness in one overnight session. I’m glad that I won’t have to face the drying winter air without this.
Like many luxury products, By Terry Baume de Rose works beautifully. It applies nearly clear with a pleasant, faint, soft rose scent. It works amazingly quickly and well–far better than the balms and cuticle products that sell in the under $20 range. It doesn’t feel heavy, oily, or buttery–rather, it goes on with a very soft feel and is absorbed into the skin gradually. Since I got it, I’ve been carrying it from my desk side to my purse, I simply don’t want to be without it. If you’d like another perspective, check out this video review by Seth Akins who loves it as much as I do.
b-glowing also carries the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in #8 Paradise Island. This is a pretty, bright pearly blue aqua color. I’ve long coveted the By Terry Ombre Blackstar, and it’s only a matter of time before I start acquiring more items in her line. Here’s a photo of nearly all the rest at The Black Panties.
These eye colors go on with the gorgeous, gliding luminosity. I’d love to get more colors in this same formula.
Finally, b-glowing carries Kevyn Aucoin’s The Celestial Powder Candlelight.
This is a gorgeous, perfect highlighter that gives enough glow to make a difference but includes no sparkle. Housed in a chic, slim package with a brush, this is a powder is ready to travel.
For those that like a little bit of natural looking, healthy glow, this product is amazing.
Here are some comparison swatches with the more Chanel Poudre Signe, Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight, the metallic rose gold MAC Superb Extra Dimension Skinfinish (which I believe will be re-promoted just around December 26th, and Bobbi Brown Skinfinish in Gold (which does have glitter bits and is far more yellow).
By the way, if you’re interested in a genius highlighting tutorial, check out this one from Wayne Goss. I love this highlighter. By the way, look at this cute sample kit that b-glowing included with the products–including a sample of Mad Madame from Juliette with a Gun, First Aid Beauty, Oscar Blandi and Erno Lazlo. These people know how to glow!
